Singapore – iQiyi Original Korean drama series starring Gianna Jun and Ju Ji-hoon, and created by director Lee Eung-bok (Descendants of The Sun, Guardian: The Lonely and Great God) and writer Kim Eun-hee (Signal, Kingdom), presents trailers of its first two episodes today (October 16th). The gripping edit features national park rangers Gianna Jun and Ju Ji-hoon racing against time and putting their lives on the line to save trapped victims, and Ju revealing he has a mysterious ability.
In the trailer, Gianna Jun said urgently, “We are not left with much of our ‘Golden Hour’ period of 30 hours”, and insisted on search and rescue in the stormy night. Despite their team leader warning that it was a gamble of their own lives saying, “You might die!”, Jun and Ju persisted in their rescue efforts. With his expressive eyes, Ju is also seen saying, “I have been seeing the people in need on Jirisan,” leaving questions as to the mysterious ability he possesses.
Jirisan’s production crew remarked that Ju Ji-hoon was the most suitable candidate to play rookie ranger Kang Hyun-jo who is passionate and upright, but has a tragic past and a secret to keep. Writer Kim Eun-hee also tailored parts of the character to highlight Ju’s personal charisma.
In the latest production stills, Gianna Jun brings to life the many faces of her character Seo Yi-gang. At times she appears uptight and solemn and on occasions her mischievous smile spreads positive energy. Jun also comforts a loved one of someone in need of search and rescue. Jun and her encounters with all who climb the peak as well as her park ranger teammates are sure to make for stories to look forward to.
Jirisan follows the team of national park rangers who are responsible for search and rescue on Jirisan. Experienced ranger (played by Gianna Jun) and rookie ranger (played by Ju Ji-hoon) are set to unravel the secrets of the peak. The iQiyi Original K-series will exclusively simulcast with Korea on October 23rd on iQiyi International app or iQ.comworldwide.
