Based off of the same title Japanese novel, "Solomon's Perjury" has one of the most gripping mystery storylines of the year. The story begins with a series of interconnected deaths at an elite high school that have all the students rattled. Frustrated with the situation and the adults who're ignoring the facts, the students decide to hold their own school mock trial for this case. Each student has their own role to play, from the prosecutor to the defense attorney.
This is a drama brimming with youth, angst, and suspense. It's a story with a strong message highlighting one of the major faults of the social constructs in the educational sector - lobbying - along with other serious topics like school bullying and child abuse. At the beginning, I could never have imagined that the drama would go as far as it did with its emotional rollercoaster, and deliver on its promise in every single way.
