Jeon Ji-hyun, Joo Ji-hoon save lives in tvN drama Jirisan
New stills, featuring Jeon Ji-hyun (Legend of the Blue Sea) and Joo Ji-hoon (Hyena, Kingdom 2), have been revealed for upcoming mystery drama Jirisan. Taking place on the second-highest mountain peak in South Korea, Jirisan is a high-stakes survival mystery about hikers.
Jeon Ji-hyun and Joo Ji-hoon play park rangers who search for and rescue people who may have been lost or injured on the mountain. With the foggy backdrop and anxious expressions on our protagonists’ faces, the newly released stills below exude a sense of gravitas and urgency. The silly one above is apparently the actors having fun while between takes.
While this may not be my go-to genre, I’m loving the casting lineup which also includes extremely talented veteran actors like Sung Dong-il (Somehow Family), Kim Young-ok (The King: Eternal Monarch) and Oh Jung-se (It’s Okay to Not Be Okay). The writer and director team is also top-notch, so it’s almost guaranteed to be a success. *crosses fingers*
tvN’s Jirisan, written by Kim Eun-hee (Kingdom) and directed by Lee Eung-bok (Mr. Sunshine), will be broadcast in 2021, and for international audiences, it will be available through the OTT platform iQIYI.
