The upcoming drama “Jirisan” has unveiled a character teaser for Kang Hyun Jo!
Jirisan is a new mystery drama from tvN starring Jun Ji Hyun as Mount Jiri’s top ranger Seo Yi Kang, and Joo Ji Hoon as the rookie ranger Kang Hyun Jo, who is also hiding an unspeakable secret. The drama follows the incidents that occur at the national park when the two begin to dig up the truth behind a mysterious accident that occurred on the mountain.
In the new character teaser, Seo Yi Kang and Kang Hyun Jo are hiking up the mountain together when they grab each other’s hands. Seo Yi Kang asks, “What?”, and Kang Hyun Jo replies with a smooth smile, “What? Are we mobilizing together? Or did you help me up in case I was tired? Or is it… this?”, lifting up her hand in his in a semi-romantic gesture.
The other rangers ask each other in wonder, “Is that the new rookie? He looks bland”, and like Seo Yi Kang, aren’t sure what to make of the new recruit. Kang Hyun Jo throws himself wholeheartedly into the physical aspects of his job, running with gear and fiddling with the equipment. Seo Yi Kang replies, “He’s not bland. But he’s also not normal.”
The teaser soon takes a dark turn as a mysterious figure leaves a trail of chaos and blood on the mountain and the rangers attempt to stop them and figure out what’s going on.
“Jirisan” is written by Kim Eun Hee (“Signal,” Netflix’s “Kingdom”) and directed by Lee Eung Bok (“Goblin,” “Descendants of the Sun,” “Mr. Sunshine). It premieres on October 23 at 9 p.m. KST
