 Have you seen the American version ?

Yup , LJH in uniform - my fangirl dream come true :lol:

 

No I haven't seen the US version. Only so many hours in a day... and there are far too many dramas out there. ;) 

 

Is LJH playing a baddie in this? I don't mind if he plays a character akin to the one in Stranger but less weasley. :P

 

Good news that Netflix is subbing it. It means I can watch it properly and even rope the husband into watching it with me. He likes these kinds of political-military type dramas as well.

I read somewhere that he’s  suppose to be JJH’s rival . I have not seen the American version either but this is what I found

Spoiler

Like the original version starring Keifer Sutherland, the South Korean adaptation tells the story of a politician, who ascends from the position of Minister of Environment to President, after an explosion at the National Assembly kills everyone in the Cabinet who is ahead of him in terms of the presidential succession.

Actor Ji Jin-hee, who is best known for his roles in period dramas Dong Yi and Daejanggeum or Jewel in the Palace, will play the main role.

The show will also star Lee Joon-hyuk as an independent lawmaker, and Heo Joon-ho as  the Chief Presidential Secretary.

 

tvn update ... @jongski with or without uniform ? :D  @Lawyerh @screwdila

The cast introduces their characters/ story & BTS for the poster photoshoot . 

 

@joonminfan hope you’ll be able to join us here !

It doesn't sound like LJH's character is an outright villain and that's good. I loved him so much as the straight arrow in A Poem a Day although he was equally fantastic in Stranger. 

He will certainly give JJH a run for his money. ;)

I hope this show ends better for JJH than Misty did. I don't have nightmares over that... but there's still a pang or two of disappointment about how that show wrapped up.

I don’t mind him (LJH ) being a little grey but not so smarmy like in Stranger  ( though his character in APAD is still my favourite :D ) . 

 

More info from https://www.hellokpop.com/kdrama/designated-survivor-60-days-netflix-drama/

Titled Designated Survivor: 60 Days, the remake stars actor Ji Jin Hee (Jewel in the Palace) in another challenging role. Following the narrative of the original series but giving a more Korean feel, the drama will tell the story of a scientist turned politician who inadvertently becomes the President of South Korea. 

 

Park Moo Jin holds the position of Minister of Environment. He is having a hard time fitting in the world of politics. An unfortunate incident will make him the country’s President.

 

An explosion in the National Assembly decimates the members of the Cabinet, and as next in line in the Presidential succession, he assumes the post for 60 days. Although lacking in experience and hesitant to do the job, Park Moo Jin will try to uncover the truth and motive behind the incident.

Lee Joon Hyuk who starred in the highly-acclaimed TV drama Strangerjoined Ji Jin Hee in the cast. He plays Oh Young Seok, a charming independent legislator who is also full of confidence and brimming with energy. His personality is an extreme contrast to Park Moo Jin’s.

Designated Survivor: 60 Days introduced a new character unique to the Korean adaptation. Actor Heo Joon Ho (KingdomCome and Hug Me) portrays the role of Han Joo Seung, the Chief Presidential Secretary. He is a man who is very calm and collected. His tendency to separate private and public matters will create tension between him and the interim President.

 

 

Kim Tae Hee (Sungkyunkwan ScandalBeautiful Mind) wrote the script of the upcoming political-thriller drama. Meanwhile, director Yoo Jong Sun (What’s Wrong with Secretary KimDescendants of the Sun) is in charge of the directing duties.

 

Designated Survivor: 60 days is set to premiere on July 1 on tvN at 9:30 PM KST. The series will also be available in Asia Pacific countries, except Japan (10:30 PM SGT) and English territories (July 1 at 7:30 AM PDT) through Netflix, an hour after its Korean broadcast.  The Japanese broadcast will be on August 21 at 4:00 PM JST.

Lee Joon Hyuk Explains Why He Decided To Appear In New Korean Remake Of “Designated Survivor”

Jun 17, 2019
by S. Park

Lee Joon Hyuk has shared his thoughts on what viewers can look forward to in his upcoming drama “60 Days, Designated Survivor” (literal title)!

The new tvN drama is a remake of the popular U.S. series “Designated Survivor,” which tells the story of an inexperienced politician unexpectedly leading the country after an explosion kills the president and others in the line of succession.

In the upcoming drama, Lee Joon Hyuk will play the role of Oh Young Seok, a former naval officer and independent member of the National Assembly. Oh Young Seok is a rising political star who receives love and attention from the public due to his confident way of speaking, self-assured facial expressions, handsome face, and innate leadership skills.

Lee Joon Hyuk explained that he decided to appear in the drama because he had been drawn to the character’s complexity. “Oh Young Seok is someone who stands somewhere in the middle of what most people believe to be the definitions of good and evil,” said the actor. “I found it appealing that the character’s influences and his future direction were unknown.”

Actor Ji Jin Hee will star in the drama as Park Moo Jin, the head of the Ministry of Environment who is the “designated survivor.” With no desire for power and zero political skills, the former KAIST professor unexpectedly becomes the acting president.

Comparing himself to the lead, Lee Joon Hyuk said, “Oh Young Suk and Park Moo Jin are very different. He focuses more on the changes in the overall energy and flow of the world, rather than his personal objectives and emotions.”

He went on, “While watching the drama, I think it’d be best to focus on the conflicts between the charming characters and the changes they experience as they encounter various situations. Please continue to show interest in [’60 Days, Designated Survivor’], which will be a high-quality production, until its first episode.”

“60 Days, Designated Survivor” will premiere on July 1 at 9:30 p.m. KST as the follow-up to “Abyss.”

Stills of Ji Jin-hee’s friends and (maybe) foe in Designated Survivor

by tipsymocha

designatedsurvivor-still6191.jpg

The more I hear about tvN’s Designated Survivor: 60 Days, the more excited I get, especially because of the impressive cast the show has lined up, with interesting characters to populate this what-if nightmare scenario. The show is only about two weeks out from its premiere, so the promo wheel is busy cranking out material, this time with stills of three key players in the political thriller, played by the ever-wonderful Heo Jun-ho (Kingdom), Kang Hanna (Familiar Wife), and Lee Jun-hyuk (Are You Human Too).

Designated Survivor, which is a remake of an American show with the same name, will follow Ji Jin-hee (Misty), who finds himself in the Blue House following a terrorist attack on the National Assembly that kills the president as well as everyone before him in the line of succession. As the former, rather low-rung Minister of Environment, Ji Jin-hee’s character will have to navigate his way as a fledgling and unexpected president, lead a nation reeling from a traumatic terror attack, all while trying to find the culprits behind the bombings. All in a day’s work, right?

From google translate - the blue lines generally indicate - trust, allies, political aides. The red ones - rivalry ( btwn JJH and LJH), suspicion ( btwn Kang Hana and LJH)

by S. Park
faaccde7772e499f92cac1fc7eeb32de.jpeg?s=

Lee Joon Hyuk is looking dapper in the newest stills for “60 Days, Designated Survivor” (literal title).

A remake of the popular U.S. series “Designated Survivor,” this upcoming tvN drama will tell the story of the head of the Ministry of Environment Park Moo Jin (played by Ji Jin Hee) who unexpectedly leads the country for 60 days after a terror attack kills the president and others in the line of succession during the State of the Union Address.

Lee Joon Hyuk will portray Oh Young Seok, a former naval officer and independent member of the National Assembly. He’s a rising political star who receives love and attention from the public for his confident way of speaking, self-assured facial expressions, handsome face, and innate leadership skills.

During his interview at the poster shooting, Lee Joon Hyuk revealed, “While preparing for this project, I lost 9 kilograms (approximately 20 pounds) for the role of Oh Young Seok. I could immerse more into the project.”

I used papago translate to get a jisc of  the character description 

http://program.tving.com/tvn/60days/12/Contents/Html

Ji Jin Hee's - Park Moon Jo - I laughed at the part where the translation says  he's not a sexy brain man but a handyman in our neighbourhood:joy:

 

Spoiler

Political sense? Zero.
Political beliefs? No.
Political ambitions? More and more.
What he has is data. a scientific and evidence-driven way of thinking
A logical and rational attitude of life.
He's not a brain-sexy man, he's a handyman in our neighborhood.

Park Moo-jin, a scientist, will become environment minister after being picked by President Yang Jin-man, who needed a breakthrough due to falling approval ratings. However, the post of environment minister will soon be "true" and "failure." In other words, I realized that it was a place where there was a real status but nothing could be done. If he had a political sense, he would have waited and seen the time. If he had political ambitions, he would have bent over and tried to fall into the eyes of the president. Mujin, who was not interested in both, just wanted to make his own "policy." In the real world of politics, policies are frustrated by the realization that they cannot be implemented.

However, when the president and all Cabinet members were killed in the bombing, he unintentionally ascended to the post of supreme and acting president.

Acting President Park Moo-jin, we can't stand back or run anymore. The real culprits of the Capitol terror slowly beginning to reveal their bodies in front of them. And the accomplices, the prosecution, the press, the chaebol. And Cheong Wa Dae, someone... Begin to seduce Mujin. Get your hands on us. My power can give you power.

Park Moo-jin wants to be a good politician, 
Can he still remain a good man?

His wife - seems she is a human rights lawyer

Spoiler

Be honest. Be confident. A character without hesitation and without roughness. Unlike human rights lawyers that others know, human rights lawyers use irregular skills to win by any means.
However, neither the lawyer of the year who is spotlighted nor the protagonist of the world-changing trial. There's only one thing I want to be! You're powerless, you're not rich, you're unfair, you're making a lot of clients the hero of your life. Their attorney...
Then, the National Assembly building suddenly collapses and Mujin becomes acting president. Now, the lecture is not only about mother and wife, but also the role of acting spouse.

They have two kids.

 

Heo Joon Ho will play the chief of staff 

Spoiler

A strong character. Unlike a sword-like character that distinguishes between public and private, he is quiet and calm in everything. I've never shown anger. Outgoing and active president, I can feel the age of living in the shadow of Yang Jin-man. Chief of Staff Han Joo-seung was a man whom everyone admired.
He went to work to prepare for the Korea-U.S. summit even on the day his son died of leukemia. Of course, no one at Cheong Wa Dae noticed the fact. The president, who was an old comrade, should have known of course. Han Joo-seung is that kind of person. 
Han Joo-seung, a close aide to the president who went to pre-negotiation with North Korea for a peace treaty, survived the terror disaster thanks to him or her. At the same time, Park Moo-jin, the new acting president of politics who knows nothing, will have to help lead the emergency situation for 60 days. 
However, when Park Moo-jin discovered the image of her beloved and respected political partner, Yang Jin-man. Han Joo-seung's eyes at Park Moo-jin, who was regarded as just an incompetent acting president with no sense of political power and no sense of power, are starting to waver.

Kang Hana plays the NIS agent

Spoiler

Han Na-kyung (Lady, Early 30s) / Kang Na-na
Analyst of the National Intelligence Service's Counterterrorism Team


Fists before words, or women who act more like a tree than a flower. an office worker who is more faithful to his salary than a well-mannered secret agent a fast-paced and persistent pursuer 
For Han, the NIS was both a pride and an honor. Until you're involved in a terrorist attack on Capitol Hill... A clue found in the remnants of the bomb reported that the attack might not have been committed by North Korea.
However, the reporting was ignored and the organization that believed and loved so interfered with her investigation and set her up.
From now on, her lonely pursuit begins. 
With an inexcusable and inexcusable commitment...

Lee Joon Hyuk -  he's sexy and attractive, and will win you over with his charisma and aura :lol:( he's already won me over :P)

Spoiler


Oh Young-seok (Nam, early 40s) / Lee Joon-hyuk
a graduate of the Naval Academy / a leading member of the Battle of Baengnyeong / an independent lawmaker

 

Self-confident language, a confident expression, and great affinity for disarming opponents in an instant. And a natural soldier, a natural leader, whose mission is to dedicate himself to the community. a congenital power addict Like a scene from a Hollywood movie, it is equipped with a beautiful boy visual of naval conquest.
With strict living standards, he has so far lived a life that is just as disorganized as when he was an officer, such as fitness, ironing his suit and polishing his shoes every morning. The sexy tension of a man who does not neglect himself is attractive.
When it became known that Oh Young-seok was a former youth officer in the Battle of Baengnyeong, which was the first victory in a naval battle with North Korea since the Korean War, amid widespread anxiety and fear that North Korea might be behind the attacks. Characters, stories, and fantasies are all complete. 
If Mujin has won people's trust around practical policies, Oh Young-seok begins to win people's hearts with his aura and powerful charisma.

Bae Jong Ok -so happy to see this actress again - she is the opposition leader

Spoiler
Yoon Chan-kyung (Woman, early 50s) / Bae Jong-ok  
Leader of the Advancement Republican Party
A local figure who started as a former policy aide to lawmakers in college and rose to the current position oopposition leader. Number one role model for political newcomers and female politicians. 
She has great political skill A master of negotiation or a master of intimidation. I know from my long life that politics is a power game. 
Only Yang Jin, whose approval rating has fallen, is leading the way in shaking up the president, and Yoon Chan-kyong, who is qualified to become president in this state of national crisis after the terrorist attacks, is confident that he is the only one with experience and experience
