Kim Soo-hyun once again proves his name with a sensual bed scene and tear acting in “One Ordinary Day”.
It’s another racy bed scene. Actor Kim Soo-hyun once again showed his exceptional level in the Coupang Play series “One Ordinary Day” following his previous movie “Real”. However, unlike “Real,” which is considered an all-time “failure” due to its contextless development, “One Ordinary Day” already gives off the vibe of a “masterpiece” from the first week of its release. At the center of the attention was Kim Soo-hyun.
“One Ordinary Day” is a show about the fierce survival of Kim Hyun-soo (played by Kim Soo-hyun), who is an ordinary college student but suddenly became a murder suspect overnight, and Shin Jung-han (played by Cha Seung-won), a third-class lawyer at the bottom of the society who does not care about the truth. The series is based on the British BBC drama “Criminal Justice.”
Above all, “One Ordinary Day” drew huge attention even before its release thanks to Kim Soo-hyun’s, who has both the acting skill and the popularity, appearance. The production cost is also known to have been around 20 billion won, and Coupang Play, which was launched in December last year, purchased the exclusive copyrights for 10 billion won, suggesting that expectations were high for “One Ordinary Day.”
“One Ordinary Day”, which aired on Nov 27th, was truly Kim Soo-hyun‘s one-man show. From the moment he sneaked out of the house with his father’s car key, who is a taxi driver, he enjoyed a dangerous drunk escape with a strange woman called Hwang Se-on (Hong Guk-hwa). After waking up only to find out that the woman was already dead, he ran away the next day and was transferred to the police station due to drunk driving. Kim Soo-hyun delicately filled the entire 55-minute running time alone with his rollercoaster-like emotions.
Kim Soo-hyun‘s “crying acting” also shone in his drama. His detailed acting in scenes where he ran away in surprise after discovering the dead body, where he was arrested as the suspect in the case, and where he claimed innocence to the detective, are receiving admiration from the viewers.
While the viewers are busy wondering, “Is Kim Soo-hyun really the culprit?” Kim Soo-hyun‘s crying acting leads viewers to agree with the idea that he was falsely accused. In particular, the scene where he cried in fear while saying, “I didn’t do it” evokes admiration for the actor’s skills.
Kim Soo-hyun‘s unconventional exposure in this project is also surprising. The bed scene with Hwang Se-on was clarified to be 19+ content with steamy kisses and high-level exposure. On top of that, the scene of the character’s body being photographed by detectives after being arrested by the police is also shocking.
Above all, the exposure of “One Ordinary Day” is different from Kim Soo-hyun’s movie “Real” as it was a scene necessary for the development of the drama. While “Real,” which exposes Kim Soo-hyun‘s buttocks on bed from the first scene featuring Sulli, was criticized for simply objectifying the female characters as sexual goods, “One Ordinary Day” clearly depicts the life of the lowest class who is not guaranteed even the basic defense rights in front of the legal court.
“I wanted to make the charm of the original work mine. When I heard the news of the production, I thought, “This is an opportunity.” Kim Soo-hyun said, “I did my best as Hyun-soo in the drama, so I was being innocent, unfair, sad, swayed, and grew up.” This is why the actor, who had properly proved his name value even though it was his first time challenging himself in this genre, is expected to show another aspect of his skills through “One Ordinary Day.”
