Kim Soo-hyun remembers One Ordinary Day in new teaser with Cha Seung-won
A new video teaser has been released for Coupang Play’s upcoming crime drama One Ordinary Day, featuring its lead actors Kim Soo-hyun (It’s Okay to Not Be Okay) and Cha Seung-won (Hwayugi).
The drama’s story takes us through the justice system of South Korea by following the character played by Kim Soo-hyun. By all accounts, he’s just an ordinary college student going about his day-to-day. But when a series of unexpected events make him a murder suspect overnight, third-rate lawyer Cha Seung-won decides to help Kim, despite the odds stacked against them.
The teaser opens on Kim Soo-hyun sitting in jail as he fidgets nervously and tries not to panic. Cha Seung-won meets with him and calmly offers his counsel: “Hyun-soo, from now on we’re not going to talk about anything related to what happened that night. Ever.”
In a sequence of black-and-white shots, we see Kim’s memories of the night in question with certain objects in color: blood on the railing, a broken vase of flowers on the steps, and a quivering hand lying on the bed. The captions indicate that the drama is based on BBC’s Criminal Justice and introduces PD Lee Myung-woo who directed the dramas Punch and Fiery Priest.
A worried Kim Soo-hyun tells Cha Seung-won, “But you should know what my true story is.” In reply, Cha delivers the harsh reality saying, “That truth you’re talking about? If you become fixated on it, you won’t be able to do anything.” The trailer then cuts to another flashback sequence, this time in full color, but more disjointed. In quick shots, we see someone consuming something, a police officer taking photos of the crime scene, fallen flowers picked up from the ground, someone slicing a lime, Kim talking to someone off-screen, and a distressed Kim crying.
After the drama’s title card, we return to Kim Soo-hyun in the present, but the shot is in monochrome. The teaser comes to an end as Kim cautiously asks Cha Seung-won: “That woman… did she die?”
Directed by PD Lee Myung-woo (Backstreet Rookie) and written by Kwon Soon-kyu (Jackpot), Coupang Play’s One Ordinary Day premieres next month on November 27.
