More than a year since he starred in the hit K-drama It’s Okay Not to Be Okay, the 33-year-old actor is making his return to K-dramas in One Ordinary Day. The drama, which also stars A Korean Odyssey‘s Cha Seung Won and Less Than Evil‘s Lee Seol, is set to premiere on Viu this November 27.
One Ordinary Day is the Korean remake of the British drama Criminal Justice. It centers on two men whose lives change after a woman is murdered. Here, Kim Soo Hyun plays Kim Hyun Soo, an ordinary college student who becomes the prime suspect in the murder of a woman after one drunken night of fun. All the evidence points at him, and the prosecution is eager to declare him guilty.
Meanwhile, Cha Seung Won plays Shin Joong Han, a small-time lawyer who decides to help Hyun Soo, thinking that he’s innocent. The two must then put up an intense fight to bring justice and reveal the real suspect of the murder case.
The drama comes from director Lee Myung Woo (Backstreet Rookie, The Fiery Priest, Punch), with a screenplay by Kwon Soon Gyu (The Royal Gambler, Warrior Baek Dong Soo, Jackpot).
One Ordinary Day premieres on Viu this November 27.
