Oh wow, this one snuck up on me in terms of a surprise teaser drop but it just made it more exciting to get this unexpected treat. Upcoming Coupang Play legal thriller drama One Ordinary Day (formerly known as That Night) starring Kim Soo Hyun and Cha Seung Won is officially on the promo radar as the first teaser poster above and short teaser preview dropped this week. This teaser packed a punch in two ways, the visually striking mood and how transformative Cha Seung Won looks as the street lawyer hired to defend Kim Soo Hyun who is a college student accused of murdering a young woman. It’s clear this isn’t a feel good “innocent man gets righteously exonerated” clean cut type of K-drama take on the legal system, it’s adapted from the BBC drama Criminal Justice so expect a lot of grey areas and uncomfortable takes. Directing is the PD of The Fiery Priest and Backstreet Rookie with the writer of The Royal Gambler, Goddess of Fire, and Warrior Baek Dong Soo.
