The new mystery thriller series, "One Ordinary Day," featuring Kim Soo-hyun and Cha Seoung-won, will be exclusively available for streaming on Coupang Play, the local streamer said on Sunday.
"As our first exclusive content offering, we will present a high quality series to paid membership users," a Coupang Play official said in a statement. In December, e-commerce firm Coupang launched the video streaming service to compete with global and local streamers such as Netflix, Wavve and Watcha Play.
A remake of BBC's "Criminal Justice," the 8-episode series revolves around a young man who is accused of murder, though he is unable to remember committing the crime.
Kim plays a college student named Hyun-soo whose life turns upside down after being accused of murder, while Cha stars as a lawyer named Joong-han, who offers help to Hyun-soo.
Director Lee Myung-woo, whose previous works include SBS's "The Fiery Priest" (2019) and "Backstreet Rookie" (2020), will helm the series with the script written by Kwon Soon-gyu, who is behind SBS's "Warrior Baek Dong-soo" (2011) and "Jackpot" (2016).
"One Ordinary Day" will premiere on Coupang Play in November.
