Jin Goo Talks About His Role in ‘A Superior Day’


‘A Superior Day’ is a thriller drama set in a suspenseful 24-hour time frame

This OCN thriller drama will feature Jin Goo as a father who desperately tries to save his daughter in just 24 hours.

Jin Goo shared his opinion on the lead role he played in the OCN drama ‘A Superior Day’.

The drama, which is based on the popular webtoon of the same name, is a 24-hour thriller about a father who has to save his kidnapped daughter.

Jin Goo will play Lee Ho Chul, a firefighter who only has 24 hours to save his kidnapped daughter. Meanwhile, Ha Do Kwon will play Bae Tae Jin, a shrewd professional assassin who chases serial killers, Kwon Si Woo, played by Lee Won Geun.

Jin Goo explained the reason why he really wanted to play Lee Ho Chul, “It’s been a long time since I played a character who was hopeless, and I wanted to really sink into that despair while acting.”

He continued his character from his role in the drama, “A person who is strong enough to even risk his life to save his family and innocent lives.”

The actor also said that playing a character who sacrifices so passionately is an inspiring experience. “Even though he constantly finds himself in danger because of two criminals, Lee Ho Chul devoted everything he had to save his daughter,” said Jin Goo, “And while playing the role, I realized that and learned a lot of things.”

Regarding the portrayal of the character, Jin Goo shared that he put a lot of thought and careful planning into his acting before filming started. “Even though it’s only 24 hours in the drama, we shoot a long time in real life. So I think it’s important to keep the same energy that we had at the start of filming.”

“I really wanted to notice every change in my character’s emotions, so I drew detailed diagrams in my script. From the shape of the mouth to the gaze and the tips of the toes, I wanted to show a highly calculated acting performance.”

Lastly, Jin Goo asked viewers to listen while teasing faintly, “If you watch our drama, I think you will really realize what it means to be superior. He continued, “It will definitely be etched in people’s memories as a drama that is fun to watch, so please look forward to it.”
