If you are a hardcore fan of the mystery crime thriller genre, One Ordinary Day is the perfect year-end drama for you to enjoy. Let’s take a look at 3 reasons to tune in for this exciting series.
1. Compelling storyline
One Ordinary Day is a remake of BBC UK’s hit TV series Criminal Justice with the main storyline centering on ordinary student Kim Hyun Soo (Kim Soo Hyun), whose life turns upside down after he becomes the suspect in a serious murder case. He falls into a deadlock when the pieces of evidence all point to him as the only culprit.
When Hyun Soo is desperate because of the allegations, Shin Joong Han (Cha Seung Won), a third-rate lawyer, volunteers to help investigate and defend him in the case. The two’s journey to find justice and explores the system gradually reveals mysterious details surrounding the murder.
2. Creative plot, which was developed from the original series
One Ordinary Day retains the same main storyline as the original version, but the details of the case have been changed to comply with Korean law. Furthermore, the film not only focuses on Hyun Soo and Joong Han’s investigative journey, but it also delves into other aspects of the gentle student Kim Hyun Soo‘s prison life.
If Shin Joong Han finds evidence outside, Kim Hyun Soo has to struggle to survive in prison while waiting for his court date. Hyun Soo becomes acquainted with the leader of the group of prisoners, Do Ji Tae (Kim Sung Kyu), but this connection causes him to become the target of bullying by others.
Instead of focusing solely on solving cases, which can be tedious, this drama reveals details about Kim Hyun Soo’s character’s life in prison. Viewers will wonder not only how Hyun Soo and Joong Han will prove their innocence, but also how this character can survive in prison. Will Kim Hyun Soo turn himself into a brutal leader like Do Ji Tae in prison?
3. Famous and talented actors
Cha Seung Won and Kim Soo Hyun are both Korea’s top male actors with outstanding acting talents.
Talking about the first collaboration of Cha Seung Won and Kim Soo Hyun, the public is especially looking forward to the interaction of the two. Three years ago, Cha Seung Won and Lee Seung Gi created a perfect duo in A Korean Odyssey and received a lot of compliments. This makes fans put strong faith in the actor’s interaction with Kim Soo Hyun.
With so many positive sides, from the script to the above-mentioned cast, One Ordinary Day deserves to be the most anticipated drama at the end of November.
