Smoking fumes from National Assembly in Designated Survivor: 60 Days
“The National Assembly building has collapsed,” Ji Jin-hee (Misty) narrates, as civilians on a subway watch in disbelief at their government imploding in flames. Ji Jin-hee’s mouth drops in shock as he witnesses the flames from a closeby bridge, and he begins running frantically. This first teaser for Designated Survivor: 60 Days is a short, impactful clip heightening the suspenseful air of this political thriller.
Designated Survivor: 60 Days is a Korean remake of an American series on Netflix by the same name. According to the synopsis, the president of Korea and most of its highest-ranked officials die in this terror attack. The mantle of presidency falls upon the unassuming and unambitious Minister of Environment, Park Moo-jin. He is played by Ji Jin-hee, and for the next sixty days, his mission is to find the suspects behind the terror attack and protect his family and country from them.
Upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama Designated Survivor: 60 Days, written by Kim Tae-hee (Beautiful Mind) and directed by Yoo Jong-sun (What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim, Descended From the Sun), will begin airing on tvN on July 1.
