Coupang Play’s first original series intrigues with an intense and captivating 20-second clip.
Cha Seung Won and Kim Soo Hyun top-billed One Ordinary Day, the streaming platform’s first-ever drama offering. The eight-part series is the Korean adaptation of the BBC One drama Criminal Justice which aired from 2008 to 2009.
It tells the story of an ordinary college student, Kim Hyun Soo (Kim Soo Hyun). His simple life changes overnight as he becomes the prime suspect for a murder. The only person willing to extend a helping hand is third rate lawyer Shin Joong Han (Cha Seung Won).
The short teaser video shows both men looking serious, depicting the gravity of the situation. The clip opens up with a voice in the background saying, “When I think back on it, I think I saw a finger move.” Then it shows Kim Soo Hyun walking in a dimly lit hallway passing by police officer. Meanwhile, the next cut shows Cha Seung Won surrounded by flashes of camera lights as he makes his way towards a frenzied media crowd.
