2021’s most anticipated work Mount Jiri (working title), confirmed the casting of actors Jun Ji-hyun and Ju Ji-hoon after both actors were seen in Kingdom.
Mount Jiri is a mystery drama that tells the story of people climbing a mountain in the background of the vast unexplored mountain.
A new synergy is predicted as writer Kim Eun-hee, who received worldwide attention with the Kingdom series and Sign, and director Lee Eung-bok of Descendants of the Sun and Goblin fame.
The main character is a national park ranger who travels through the mountains and rescues the victims, with the mountain facing the sky as the subject, stimulating the curiosity of what kind of new stories will be born at the fingertips of the two.
Here, actor Jun Ji-hyun, who does not need any introduction, and Joo Ji-hoon, who has an irreplaceable presence, joined as the two main characters to lead the play, making the hearts of prospective viewers even more exciting.
First, Jun Ji-hyun plays Seo I-gang, the best ranger in Jirisan National Park. She instinctively knows how to climb mountains such as dirt roads, tattered roads, rock walls, cliffs, and so on, and is a person who penetrates everything about Mt. Jiri enough to guess the place of distress with just a blade of grass.
Jun Ji-hyun, who attracts viewers with just one name, is excited about what kind of life character he will be renewing and fascinating viewers this time.
Joo Ji-hoon transforms into Kang Hyun-jo, a new ranger at Jirisan National Park. Kang Hyun-jo, a former army captain who was a former military officer, has a secret that no one can tell and becomes a partner with Seo I-gang to save the people by traveling the mountain together.
Currently, all preparations have been completed to start the first filming from mid-September. The safety of the cast and staff is the top priority, and they are preparing for the site by thoroughly complying with the strengthened quarantine rules to prevent COVID-19 infection.
