Viu To Exclusively Premiere “One Ordinary Day” In November
Lauded actors Kim Soo Hyun and Cha Seung Won steer the prominent cast of One Ordinary Day.
Viu, PCCW’s leading pan-regional OTT video streaming service, announces that the highly anticipated Korean crime-thriller drama, One Ordinary Day, will be exclusively available on its platform.
Set to premiere on Viu on November 27, 2021, One Ordinary Day boasts some of South Korea’s top actors, including Kim Soo Hyun, who last starred in the hit K-drama It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, veteran actor Cha Seung Won, and Less Than Evil actress Lee Seol.
Based on the riveting British drama, Criminal Justice, the Korean adaptation centers around two men whose lives change completely after a woman is found murdered.
Much-awaited Underdog Crime Thriller Story
Kim Soo Hyun plays an ordinary college student Kim Hyun-soo who, after one drunken night of fun, finds himself the prime suspect in the gruesome murder of a woman he had spent the night with.
With all circumstantial evidence pointing at him and the case receiving increasing scrutiny in the media and on social media, the prosecution is eager to declare him guilty.
The only person who comes forward to take his case is Shin Joong-han (played by Cha Seung Won), a small-time lawyer who barely passed the bar exam. He decides to help Hyun-soo on his intuition that he is innocent.
With the odds stacked against them, the pair must put up an intense fight to bring justice and reveal the real perpetrator in a case that will not only change their lives, but also shake the criminal justice system of the country.
One Ordinary Day is produced by Chorokbaem Media (Penthouse, Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung), Studio M and Gold Medalist (It’s Okay to Not Be Okay). Written by Kwon Soon-gyu (The Royal Gambler, Warrior Baek Dong Soo), the drama is directed by established director, Lee Myung-woo (Backstreet Rookie, The Fiery Priest, Punch, Whisper).
Victorious Viu Drama Lineup
Before One Ordinary Day launches, another eagerly-awaited drama, Now We are Breaking Up, starring top-tier actress Song Hye Kyo, is scheduled to premiere on November 12 as a Viu Original.
