Cha Seung-won fights to clear Kim Soo-hyun’s name in One Ordinary Day
New stills have been released as we near the November premiere of One Ordinary Day. The stills feature the cast and crew at the drama’s first script reading.
Based on the BBC drama Criminal Justice, One Ordinary Day is about the fight for justice and survival. An ordinary college student finds himself wrongfully accused of murder, and all the evidence is stacked against him. His only help comes from two unlikely sources: a third-rate lawyer, and the top dog at a prison.
Kim Soo-hyun (It’s Okay to Not Be Okay) takes on the role of college student Kim Hyun-soo. Having to face trial as a murder suspect, he’s plagued with regrets about what happened that fateful day. If only he hadn’t gotten into that car, gone into that house, and hadn’t ran away… What could have gone differently that night?
Cha Seung-won (Hwayugi) plays the part of the low-ranking lawyer, Shin Joong-han. As a third-rate attorney, he makes his living defending petty criminals. His policy is to never question what the truth really is.
Also offering to help Kim Soo-hyun is Kim Sung-kyu (Kingdom 2)’s character, Do Ji-tae. He holds the most power at the prison, and is at the top of the food chain.
Finally, Lee Seol (When the Devil Calls Your Name) plays the newly-minted lawyer Seo Soo-jin. Fresh out of school, she’s still learning the ropes and is passionate about helping others.
Written by Kwon Soon-kyu (Jackpot, Warrier Baek Dong-soo) and directed by PD Lee Myung-woo (Backstreet Rookie, Fiery Priest), One Ordinary Day will premiere this November on Korea’s new streaming service, Coupang Play.
