New K-Drama “One Ordinary Day” Completely Puzzles Viewers With A Mystery Trailer: Who Do You See?

Kim Soo Hyun or not Kim Soo Hyun, that is the question.

On November 27 KST, the South Korean video streaming platform Coupang Play released its new original thriller K-Drama, One Ordinary Day. Featuring actors Kim Soo Hyun and Cha Seung Won, One Ordinary Day is actually a Korean take on the 2008 British television series Criminal Justice.

The first two of its eight episodes deemed One Ordinary Day to be a series worth watching. But it’s the final trailer, which had been released prior to the premiere, that caused the real buzz online!
