Oooh... sounds interesting. I don't think I've ever seen the British version. Yesh! It's on Netflix. Must go check it out some time.


Kim Soo-hyun in a crime show. Yay! And another favourite Cha Seung-won! Loved him in Korean Odyssey.

Second half of 2021 -- must be pre-producing it. Yes, will definitely have to look at the British version in the meantime.


Thanks for tagging me @mademoiselle

This looks good! And Ji Hwa's got make up here! 😆


I read from the earlier posts that this is a remake. But watching an earlier version is kinda like a "spoiler", although originals are supposed to be good/better sometimes. Hmmmm....


Just read this article too from AsiaTatler. Think some of the other salaries are perhaps old data - how can the difference be so great 😱

[News] Kim Soo Hyun And Cha Seung Won Team Up In Poster For Upcoming Crime Drama


Kim Soo Hyun and Cha Seung Won’s upcoming drama has released its first poster!


The two are leading Coupang Play’s first-ever drama series “That Night” (literal title), which is a Korean remake of BBC’s “Criminal Justice.” Kim Soo Hyun will play Kim Hyun Soo, a normal college student whose life turns upside down when he unexpectedly becomes the key suspect of a murder case. Cha Seung Won will play Shin Joong Han, a lawyer who barely passed the bar exam and is the only person who reaches out to help Kim Hyun Soo.


The poster features the first look at the two together. Kim Soo Hyun is stuck in a prison cell, looking exhausted. Cha Seung Won joins him in the cell and holds out his hand, and the two shake while Cha Seung Won looks determined. While Kim Soo Hyun holds his other hand in a tight fist, Cha Seung Won casually holds a business card, teasing the contrast between their situations.


The producers remarked, “‘That Night’ is a rare masterpiece that captures a problematic perspective and emphasizes a sharp directing cut that challenges the discrepancies of the criminal justice system. It’s a must-watch drama with a weighty message in this troubled times that prioritizes comfort and convenience over justice and righteousness.”

Kim Soo Hyun And Cha Seung Won Gear Up For Upcoming Criminal Drama At First Script Reading



Coupang Play released stills from the first script reading for their first original series “One Ordinary Day.”


“One Ordinary Day” is a Korean remake of the BBC show “Criminal Justice.” In the upcoming version, Kim Soo Hyun will star as Kim Hyun Soo, an ordinary college student that is designated as a suspect in a murder case overnight. Cha Seung Won will star as Shin Joong Han, a low-class lawyer with no interest in the truth. The series will be directed by Lee Myung Woo, who previously led projects such as “Punch,” “Whisper,” and “The Fiery Priest.”


On September 30, the two actors were joined by Kim Sung Kyu, Lee Seol, and more for the first script reading. Kim Soo Hyun led the team through intense scenes with his fervent glances and passionate tone of voice. His deep emotional connection with his character opened way to Cha Seung Won, grew a beard and tied up hair to match his character. He added to the energy of the room with his compelling acting that worked well with his physical transformations.


The other actors followed suit, with Kim Sung Kyu’s charisma coming through with his character Do Ji Tae, one that sits at the top of the food chain within the prison. Lee Seol’s boldness surfaced through her character Seo Soo Jin, a lawyer just starting her career.


The production team commented, “The team of director Lee Myung Woo and talented actors Kim Soo Hyun, Cha Seung Won, Kim Sung Kyu, Lee Seol, and more are passionately invested in ‘One Ordinary Day.’ Please look forward to the series, a well-made one that will expand the spectrum of criminal dramas while delivering a special message.”


“One Ordinary Day” will premiere in November through Coupang Play.
