Joo Ji Hoon Risks His Life As Jun Ji Hyun's Partner In Upcoming Drama

tvN’s upcoming drama “Jirisan” has shared a new glimpse of Joo Ji Hoon in his starring role!

“Jirisan” is a mystery drama starring Jun Ji Hyun as Seo Yi Kang, a top ranger at Mount Jiri National Park, and Joo Ji Hoon as her rookie partner Kang Hyun Jo, who is hiding an unspeakable secret. The drama will follow the story that unfolds as the two rangers begin to uncover the truth behind a mysterious accident that occurred on the mountain.

The drama will be penned by Kim Eun Hee, the writer of many famous dramas including “Signal,” “Ghost,” and “Kingdom”—in which both Joo Ji Hoon and Jun Ji Hyun appeared—and helmed by Lee Eung Bok, the director behind the hit dramas “Goblin,” “Descendants of the Sun,” “Mr. Sunshine,” and more.

On October 1, the highly-anticipated drama released new stills of Joo Ji Hoon in character as the daring Kang Hyun Jo. A former army officer who graduated from military academy, Kang Hyun Jo seems to be right at home in the wilderness. Even as he scales dangerous heights, the rookie ranger looks composed and steady as he keeps his eyes on the rocks below his feet. However, the photos raise the question of what Kang Hyun Jo is searching for that requires him to climb such a dangerous route.

Meanwhile, another photo captures Kang Hyun Jo at the summit of Jirisan, the second-highest mountain in South Korea.

The producers of “Jirisan” commented, “Kang Hyun Jo is a charming character who couldn’t be pulled off if it weren’t Joo Ji Hoon playing him. Please look forward to Joo Ji Hoon’s powerful, three-dimensional performance, which is not defined by any one side.”

“Jirisan” premieres on October 23 at 9 p.m. KST and will be available with subtitles on Viki. In the meantime, check out the latest teaser for the drama here!
