Kim Soo Hyun and Cha Seung Won have agreed to star in That Night, an upcoming Korean remake of British award-winning series, Criminal Justice.

As the main characters navigate through the legal challenges, they also uncover the issues in the justice system from the perspective of the accused.

The script for That Night is written by Kwon Soon Kyu of Warrior Baek Dong Soo and The Royal Gambler, and it will be directed by Lee Myung Woo of The Fiery Priest and Backstreet Rookie.

Fans are excited to see the collaboration between Kim Soo Hyun and Cha Seung Won, and they will not have to wait long. Filming for the drama will begin in the first half of this year and will premiere in the latter half of the year.

  1. I read great things about the original bbc version and the American remake. I anticipate kdrama version to amp up the drama and corruption element. But the 2 men, this is super titan sort of casting. Kim soo hyun said no to netflix and I have been waiting for cha seung won to return to tv drama. For me this will be my most anticipated tv series for 2021. Very very excited. I just hope the long hair chajumma is sporting isnt for this show. Maybe this version may amp up his bad lawyer vibe or incompetent turned competent lawyer vibe. I dont know and I hope not.
