Ju Ji Hoon is currently in talks to join a new drama called Mount Jiri, which will also star Jun Ji Hyun.
According to an exclusive report from Ilgan Sports, Ju Ji Hoon will be joining the lineup of upcoming drama Mount Jiri alongside Jun Ji Hyun. The drama will be written by Kim Eun Hee, who also wrote Signal and both seasons of Kingdom.
Ju Ji Hoon’s role would be as Kang Hyeon Jo, a rookie national park ranger who is hiding a secret. He used to be a lieutenant in the military and lost his successor during a training march on Mount Jiri. Jun Ji Hyun’s character, Seo Yi Kang, would become the only person he can confide his secrets to.
Mount Jiri is about the best park ranger working in the huge area that is one of South Korea’s national parks, also called Mount Jiri. Here, Kang Hyeon Jo’s job is to save people who get lost or attempting to take their own lives, and help those who are there to find their true selves.
Earlier, it was reported that Park Seo Joon would be playing the role of Kang Hyeon Jo, but shortly after the release of the reports, all related articles connecting Park Seo Joon to Mount Jiri were deleted, leaving many to think the report was a false rumor.
The drama is still working on finalizing their cast, and is expected to air in the first half of 2021.
