Okay, this is an unexpected switcheroo. The male lead of upcoming national park based K-drama Mount Jiri will now be Joo Ji Hoon, after earlier news that Park Seo Joon was in talks for the role. This would be a reunion for Joo Ji Hoon and female lead Jeon Ji Hyun, of sorts, since they had like 5 seconds of screen time together when she cameo’d in his Kingdom season 2. The screenwriter for both dramas is Kim Eun Hee so she clearly likes them having chosen to work with both again. I’m really surprised Joo Ji Hyun signed on for yet another drama because he’s working nonstop, he actually had two K-dramas airing at the same time last month when Kingdom 2 came at the same time as his prime time drama Hyena. Mount Jiri is about park rangers saving people in the national mountain ranges of the famed area and is scheduled to air later in 2020.
