Jirisan, iQiyi Original Korean drama series, stars Gianna Jun and Ju Ji-hoon. Created by director Lee Eung-bok (Descendants of The Sun, Guardian: The Lonely and Great God) and writer Kim Eun-hee (Signal, Kingdom), the show debuts new stills today, October 21st. It spotlights the moment when Gianna Jun and Ju Ji-hoon first met. The latter did not even have enough time to change out of his formal wear before scrambling on a mission with the park rangers as a rookie. Encountering the neat and capable Gianna Jun, their intertwined destinies set out from that moment on. Jirisan is set to premiere on Oct 23, globally and exclusively on iQiyi, simulcast with Korea. 

On Jun and Ju’s on-screen relationship, the production team described them as: “aren’t quite colleagues,” “not really senior-junior,” and “toeing the line.” The pair perfectly brings out the amazing chemistry of the lead characters.

In Jirisan, Ju Ji-hoon stars as Kang Hyun-jo, a former army officer out of the military academy who arrives at Jirisan National Park as a new ranger with a secret. Asked to describe his role, Ju chose the words ‘Jirisan,’ ‘perseverance,’ and ‘youngest.’

As the youngest among the park rangers, Kang Hyun-jo likes people. He came from Seoul to Jirisan because of people. He possesses greater perseverance and sense of responsibility to help those in need, than others,” Ju shared.

Ju also talked about meeting the show creatives to chat and shape his character. Believing in immersing in shoot locations to act well, Ju revealed that in the summer before production commenced, he visited Jirisan to help the busy Kim feel rejuvenated. On that trip, they shared many stories from in and out of the production, which turned out to be of great help to Ju shape his role.

Building fans’ anticipation for his latest return with Jirisan, Ju Ji-hoon said, “In my career to date, this is the role with the most unique character, job, and setting. There are many firsts for me, and it can be regarded as my ‘brand new look.’”

In addition to Gianna Jun, Ju Ji-hoon, Sung Dong-il, Oh Jung-se, and Cho Han-cheul playing rangers of the Jirisan National Park Haedong branch office, Joo Min-kyung and Go Min-si are also core team members. Joo plays Lee Yang-sun, an administrative employee supporting the rangers. Go Min-si is also a rookie ranger who adds freshness to the team of seven protecting those in Jirisan. Jeon Seok-ho is the police officer, Kim Eung-soon. Lee Ga-sub plays park volunteer Kim Sol. Both of them work often with the rangers in search and rescue.

Jirisan follows the team of national park rangers who are responsible for search and rescue on Jirisan. Experienced ranger (Gianna Jun) and rookie ranger (Ju Ji-hoon) are set to unravel the secrets of the peak. The iQiyi Original K-series will exclusively simulcast with Korea from October 23, with new episodes airing Saturdays and Sundays at 8pm on iQiyi International app or worldwide.
