Kim Soo Hyun And Cha Seung Won Gear Up For Upcoming Criminal Drama At First Script Reading
Coupang Play released stills from the first script reading for their first original series “One Ordinary Day.”
“One Ordinary Day” is a Korean remake of the BBC show “Criminal Justice.” In the upcoming version, Kim Soo Hyun will star as Kim Hyun Soo, an ordinary college student that is designated as a suspect in a murder case overnight. Cha Seung Won will star as Shin Joong Han, a low-class lawyer with no interest in the truth. The series will be directed by Lee Myung Woo, who previously led projects such as “Punch,” “Whisper,” and “The Fiery Priest.”
On September 30, the two actors were joined by Kim Sung Kyu, Lee Seol, and more for the first script reading. Kim Soo Hyun led the team through intense scenes with his fervent glances and passionate tone of voice. His deep emotional connection with his character opened way to Cha Seung Won, grew a beard and tied up hair to match his character. He added to the energy of the room with his compelling acting that worked well with his physical transformations.
The other actors followed suit, with Kim Sung Kyu’s charisma coming through with his character Do Ji Tae, one that sits at the top of the food chain within the prison. Lee Seol’s boldness surfaced through her character Seo Soo Jin, a lawyer just starting her career.
The production team commented, “The team of director Lee Myung Woo and talented actors Kim Soo Hyun, Cha Seung Won, Kim Sung Kyu, Lee Seol, and more are passionately invested in ‘One Ordinary Day.’ Please look forward to the series, a well-made one that will expand the spectrum of criminal dramas while delivering a special message.”
“One Ordinary Day” will premiere in November through Coupang Play.
