Next year’s big dramas is definitely led by the wilderness survival K-drama Mount Jiri. Starring Jeon Ji Hyun and Joo Ji Hoon with the script by Kim Eun Hee of Kingdom and Signal and the PD of Mr. Sunshine, this drama screams both arthouse cred and Hallyu reach. The two leads play park rangers working in Jiri Mountain and encounter park goers who are there to commit suicide or get lost/hurt and need saving either way. I’m expecting more trudging around type of rescuing and less Cliffhanger style but either way I have full faith in the PD-writer combo and even more excitement to see these two leads together on the small screen. The first official photos are intentionally grainy and silhouette to convey that outdoorsy in motion feel.
Can’t wait to see them JJH couple.
