Sung Dong Il and Oh Jung Se Join Jun Ji Hyun and Ju Ji Hoon in Drama ‘Mount Jiri’

By krishkim 



Sung Dong Il and Oh Jung Se confirmed their appearances in drama Mount Jiri (literal title).

Mount Jiri will revolve around the activities of the park rangers, including going on rescue missions and protecting the ecosystem against the backdrop of Jiri Mountain, one of Korea’s most famous mountains.

Previously, Jun Ji Hyun (Seo Yi Kang) and Ju Ji Hoon (Kang Hyun Jo) decided to take on the lead roles, making headlines. On top of that, Sung Dong Il and Oh Jung Se also confirmed their roles, raising the expectations.

Oh Jung Se, who showed exceptional performance in the recently-ended It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, will play Jung Gu Young. He is a down-to-earth realist with the motto of “I live, then others live.” He never works overtime and keeps his vacation and monthly leave like a clockwork.

Sung Dong Il plays Jo Dae Jin, the branch manager of Jirisan National Park Haedong Branch. He has spent more than half of his life as a ranger and is nicknamed “Mout Jiri Man.” Jo Dae Jin has a strong sense of duty and honesty as a ranger and always feel responsible for his junior rangers.

Meanwhile, Mount Jiri is written by Kim Eun Hee, best known for Netflix’s Kingdom series and drama Signal, and is directed by Lee Eung Bok, who worked on Descendants of the Sun, Mr. Sunshine, and Goblin.

“Park Il-hae,” played by Jo Han-cheol, is a man from Gangwon-do, who has weak spontaneity, but is united with a strong desire to win. With a strong sense of responsibility as the head of the family, he is the only team leader as a leader among the Jirisan Ranger classmates such as “Seo Lee Kang” (played by Jeon Jeon-hyun) and “Jeong Goo-young” (played by Oh Jeong-se). Cho Han-cheol's wide acting spectrum is expected to increase extreme immersion.

Lineup confirmed for mystery drama Jirisan by Kingdom’s writer and Goblin’s PD

by tccolb

Jeon Ji-hyun, Joo Ji-hoon

In a slew of casting news over the last few days for upcoming drama Jirisan, lead roles have been confirmed for actors Jeon Ji-hyun (Legend of the Blue Sea), Joo Ji-hoon (Kingdom 2), Sung Dong-il (Somehow Family), and Oh Jung-se (It’s Okay to Not Be Okay).

Set in the titular Jiri Mountain, the drama is centered around the park rangers who work in Jirisan National Park and involves a mystery surrounding the mountain’s many visitors.

Jeon Ji-hyun plays one of the park’s top rangers, Seo Yi-kang. In many ways, she has become one with nature and navigating through the mountainside is almost instinctive. Her experience has also made her very knowledgeable and even a single leaf is enough of a clue to help track down a lost hiker.

Joo Ji-hoon plays a new ranger named Kang Hyun-jo, who becomes partnered with Jeon Ji-hyun when he joins the Jirisan team. He used to work in the army and rose to the rank of captain, but he carries a secret from his past.

Sung Dong-il’s character is Jo Dae-jin. He is the head of the branch office at Jirisan National Park and spent most of his life working as park ranger. He has a strong sense of duty for his job and responsibility for his staff, and is honest to a fault.

Oh Jung-se takes on the role of ranger Jung Gu-young. Being extremely realistic, he lives by the motto, “I have to take care of myself in order to take care of others.” As such, he clocks in and out of work sharply on time, makes sure to take all of his vacation days, and disappears as soon as someone says “You’re dismissed.”

Supporting cast for the drama includes team leader Jo Han-chul (Old School Intern), police officer Jeon Suk-ho (365: Defying the Year), park volunteer Lee Ga-seop (Forest of Secrets 2), and rookie ranger Go Min-shi (Secret Boutique) among others. And a notable mention for my favorite veteran actor Kim Young-ok (The King: Eternal Monarch), who plays Jeon Ji-hyun’s grandmother and restaurant owner in the Jirisan village.

There’s been a lot of fanfare for the drama’s production team as well, which will be headed by writer Kim Eun-hee (Kingdom, Signal) and PD Lee Eung-bok (Mister Sunshine, The Lonely Shining Goblin).

A network has not yet been confirmed, but the drama is being planned to air sometime next year and filming is set to commence in mid-September. The production team has also reported that they are prioritizing the health and safety of both cast and crew, and will be taking measures to practice caution and protect against the current pandemic circumstances with COVID-19.

Highly Anticipated upcoming Korean drama ‘Mount Jiri’ gets on its first voyage today. And it marks the beginning of the eight month journey of the production team!


The first script reading of ‘Mount Jiri’ held on September 9. The atmosphere was very friendly as open minded writer Kim Eun-hee allowed the actors to walk freely to absorb their characters. One anonymous actor who participated in the script reading pointed out, “I had to immerse myself into script reading because the writing style of Kim Eun-hee was so attractive."


First filming of ‘Mount Jiri’ was initially scheduled on September 18, but got postponed for a day for unknown reasons. 

So at last, the shooting of ‘Mount Jiri’ started today. One production crew confirmed it by saying,” Today (on August 18), filming of the first lot has begun. The safety of the actors and crews will be our first priority, and we will do our best to have a good start.”

First poster of highly anticipated Korean drama ‘Mount Jiri’ starring Jun Ji-hyun and Ju Ji-hoon just got released!


From the artful poster, we can see a lonely mountaineer (probably depicts Jun Ji-hyun or her ancestor’s character) walking along rocks and tattered road of ‘Mount Jiri’ and sky touching, smoky mountain stands tall behind that person’s figure.

Also, the tagline of the drama is displayed above his/her head- ” Where the sky meets the earth, there’s the boundary between this life and after-life (death)” – and you know, that place is nowhere but ‘Mount Jiri’!
