Miss Hammurabi is a courtroom drama about an overly sympathetic judge, Park Chao Reum (Go Ara), and the coolheaded Ba Reun (Kim Myung Soo). Park Chaoreum (Go Ara) is a newly appointed judge who is assigned to the 44th Civil Affairs Department at the Seoul Central District. She is always on the lookout for injustice and is able to profoundly empathize with others. Compared to her, Im Ba Reun (Kim Myung Soo) is a rigid man of principle with the creed of creating a ‘court that is equal to all'. He is displeased with junior judge, Park Chao Reum (Go Ara), who is too sympathetic when it comes to cases.
