Jeon Ji Hyun Confirmed for Kdrama Mount Jiri with screewriter of Kingdom, Signal and PD of Mr Sunshine and Goblin

Mount Jiri`s Lee Eung-Bok , Jeon Ji-hyun, Kim Eun-hee ... Trinity of Success

36ebc909b301baf1ab12f14625f4ddbe43ce1ee9

 

Whenever the veil of the top-anticipation drama 'Jirisan' in 2021 is peeled off, the expectations are poked at the peak of the mountain.

Mount Jiri is a story of people who climb the mountain, from being lonely , to those who come to die, those who come to death, and those who come to life, against the backdrop of the wide and expansive landscape of Jirisan.

Director Eung-bok Lee will direct. He was recognized for his sensuous direction through KBS 2TV's 'Secret' and 'Discovery of Love', and became a director who created three mega hits of 'Descendants of the Sun', 'Goblin' and 'Mr. Sunshine'.

 

Jeon Ji-hyun returns to Mount Jiri as the best ranger in Jirisan National Park. She knows instinctively how to climb mountains such as dirt roads, tattered roads, rock walls, and cliffs, and knows the location of distress with only one blade of grass on the backpack of the victim. It is called 'mountain ghost' and 'demon' by colleagues.

 

Writer Kim Eun-hee focused on 'Signal' with a stroke of genre following 'Sign', 'Ghost' and 'Three Days'. 'Signal' is still waiting for season 2 with fans hung up. In addition, the Netflix 'Kingdom' series, which pioneered a new genre of zombie water in Korea, went on for two seasons, creating a global fandom beyond Korea.

Mount Jiri was filmed in the second half of this year and is currently in casting.

Acording to other articles, just the writer and Jeon Ji hyun are confirmed. The PD is still in talks.

"Lee Eung-Bok  PD, it's not yet decided whether to take the lead," said an official from Mount Jiri drama production, an Ace Story official, on the 23rd. On this day, it was reported that Lee Eung-bok PD was to produce 'Jirisan Mountain', but the production company explained that it was being reviewed in various ways.

In addition, he said, "The only part that is currently confirmed is that the actor Jeon Ji-hyun and Kim Eun-hee was the author."

I have a long-time crush with Jun Ji Hyun. This is great news!

 I saw Jeon Ji Hyun in two movies (Il Mare & assasination) and one drama (The Legend of the Blue Sea) and I like her a lot. I am watching this drama because of the writer/ plot but the casting is very good. I also love that the female character is a ranger. The nature, the strong female lead, unusual job for a woman in kdramas, the human aspect of the drama with lots of emotional cases makes me be really excited to watch this drama.

 

I don`t really care who will be the male lead (maybe a little curious:)). I know the casting will be good. The male lead and suporting characters. I trust the casting director.

If you liked her in Legend of the blue Sea...I think you'll love her in My Love From Another Star. 

I'm curious as well who her leading man will be...or if she will have a leading man. This could be a story about the struggles of a park ranger.

 The drama was passable but I like Jeon Ji hyun. I heard about My Love from Another Star. Maybe I will watch someday.

 

The heroine is at the central of the story but, knowing kdramaland, it will definitely be a male lead. Let see who they will choose. I know that they will find a suitable costar. But I wonder if they will choose known actors/guessed stars for the supporting cast as there will be a few cases to be resolved each week.

Actor Park Seo-joon was selected as the male protagonist of the drama 'Mount Jiri'.

 

Park Seo-joon plays Kang Hyun-jo, a new ranger in the national park, who has a secret that no one in the play can tell. A former army lieutenant from the army, trained at the Jirisan march.

https://www.insight.co.kr/news/275930

 

 

The article says that Park Seo Joon joined the drama but let see if there will be other articles about it. Usually it comes more that he is just being proposed.

Edit: The articles about Park Seo joon joining the drama are not available anymore. It is odd. maybe it was just a rumor.

Movie star Jeon Ji-hyun (39) and Park Seo-jun (32) climb “Jiri Mountain” together.

100396685.2.jpg

According to a broadcaster on the 29th, Jeon Ji-hyun and Park Seo-jun confirmed the appearance of the new drama " Mount Jiri" by Kim Eun-hee (48). An official said, “Jeon Ji-hyun has confirmed the appearance of“ Mount Jiri ”early on.“ Park Seo-joon is a guarantee check for the ratings recognized by broadcasters. This drama is the best choice because it has proved its true value in the recently closed drama 'Itaewon Class'.


'Jiri Mountain' is a story of rangers in the Jirisan National Park who have to navigate the mountains and rescue the victims even in bad weather.

Jeon Ji-hyun is returning to the home theater after four years since “The Legend of the Blue Sea” (2016 - 2017). Takes on the role of Seoigang, the best ranger of Jirisan National Park. She instinctively knows how to ride the mountain, and she learns about the weather and the soil so that she can see the distress place with only one blade of grass on her backpack.

 

Park Seo-Jun showed off his strength by succeeding in three consecutive hits, starting with “Fight for My Way ” (2017), “What's Wrong With Secretary Kim ” (2018) and “Itaewon Class” (2020). In 'Jiri Mountain', ihe is transformed into a new ranger called 'Gang Hyunjo' in the national park, revealing bright and positive energy.

I discovered JJH for the first time through My Sassy Girl. Then i watched The Thieves and My Girl From Another Star (totally in love with Cheon Song Yi). I always have that "exclusive and wealthy A-list star" image about her in mind :lol: And nothing's happier for me more than hearing that my ultimate bias Park Seojun will join her in the drama. Hopefully it turns out to be true and not just a rumor. The storyline and main characters' occupation sound interesting and new to me.

 It is not a rumor. He was being proposed the male lead role in this drama and I think he will accept it.

 

Despite some articles that Park Seo Joon accepted the drama we don`t have an official confirmation yet.

On March 27th, media outlets reported that Park Seojoon has confirmed to take the male lead role of upcoming drama 'Jirisan' (working title). Park Seojoon will be paired up with Jun Jihyun, who has previously been confirmed as the female lead. The drama is based off of the Jirisan, a mountain-based off the southern part of South Korea.

 

The drama is written by Kim Eunhee, who is best known for her works, 'Kingdom,' 'Signal,' 'Ghost,' '3 Days' and more. This will mark Jun Jihyun's first comeback in the small screen in 4 years since 'Legend of the Blue Sea' and Park Seojoon's first drama after 'Itaewon Class.'

 

'Jirisan' is expected to kick off filming in the latter half of 2020 or in early 2021. So, are you looking forward to this, ladies and gentlemen?

@larus

Yeah i read the articles too. Some articles said he confirmed but in another article on the same day said he's still positively reviewing the offer. And don't know why they kept releasing then soon deleting it :)) I personally think he actually has accepted the offer though, but it's just a matter of time for him to confirm. As long as there's no official statement, i'll just think of it as rumor in case they disappoint me :'))

Maybe he is in later stage of negotiation. Sometimes it happends when an actor is confirmed but they won`t release an official confirmation right away. There are times when they change their mind about a cast member even if he signed already. Some actors can step down of the role in the last minute. There are many situations. Yeah, it is better to keep your expectation law in case you don`t want to be disappointed but I have a strong feeling that he will want to appear in this drama.

I like the cast but I will watch no matter what because I am looking for the writer`s next work.

In response to the reports, his agency KeyEast Entertainment shared that he received the offer but nothing has been confirmed yet. “Joo Ji Hoon has previously scheduled activities, so it does not seem possible for him to film this year. For such reasons, the production team has just checked Joo Ji Hoon’s schedule for now,” the agency explained.


It was revealed last month that Jun Ji Hyun received an offer to play the female lead, and it was later confirmed that she will be playing the role.


The drama will tell the story of Mount Jiri National Park rangers. Joo Ji Hoon has received the offer to play Kang Hyun Jo, a new park ranger who meets Seo Yi Kang (Jun Ji Hyun).


“Mount Jiri” is written by Kim Eun Hee, who is known for dramas including “Sign,” “Ghost,” “Three Days,” “Signal,” and the “Kingdom” series. The drama is in talks to be directed by Lee Eung Bok, who has worked on dramas including the “Dream High” series, “School 2013,” “Descendants of the Sun,” “Goblin,” and “Mr. Sunshine.”


The drama is scheduled to air in the first half of 2021.
