tvN ‘Jirisan’: Upcoming Korean Drama Premiering Oct 24

Upcoming action-thriller Korean drama Jirisan features Jun Ji-hyun (Kingdom: Ashin of the North), Ju Ji-hoon (Kingdom), in its latest teaser. The Korean Drama Jirisan takes over tvN’s time slot previously occupied by Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha.

The drama revolves around the mysterious, beautiful and imposing backdrop of Mt. Jirisan. Jun Ji-hyun, who plays Seo Yi-kang, is a talented park ranger skilled at navigating the woods and trails of the mountains.

The rangers and other employees of the Jirisan National Park climb through the mysterious and unexplored regions of the mountain, trying to rescue survivors and lost trekkers who need urgent help.

Ju Ji-hoon, who plays Kang Hyun-jo, is a high-ranking military officer who becomes a ranger. As he travels the mountains with senior ranger Yi-kang, they come across a mystery surrounding the mountain’s many visitors. They start to work together to discover the secret of the mountain and it’s visitors who come to kill, and those who come to end their lives.

Both Ju Ji-hoon and Gianna Jun have previously worked on the hit series Kingdom on Netflix.

The writer for the series, Kim Eun-hee, has close ties with both the leads, working with them previously on Kingdom.

My prediction is this drama will exceed expectations with its top tier cast, never-done-before storyline, and main OST sung by BTS’ Jin.

Here is the trailer!
