Poetic Justice (Chinese: 微笑正义) is a Singaporean Chinese drama. It depicts the lives of a group of people doing investigative journalism, and will be telecasted on Singapore's free-to-air channel, MediaCorp Channel 8. It will make its debut on 11 September 2012. This drama serial consists of 20 episodes, and was screened on every weekday night at 9:00 pm.

Unlike most locally produced series about crime, this series departs from the traditional police procedural style and focuses more on investigative journalism and the media.


The plot revolves around a group of young professionals involved in investigative journalism. Two journalists team up with a wealthy businessman and a lawyer to help solve cases for those in need. As they investigate further, they uncover more secrets and dark truths behind some of the crimes.
