3. Designated Survivor: 60 Days
The hit American political thriller Designated Survivor gets a Korean remake! It follows the main storyline of the original premise, but adapted to the Korean political reality: Park Mu-jin (Ji Jin-hee) is a struggling Minister of Environment who suddenly becomes the acting president for 60 days following an explosion at the National Assembly that kills everyone of a higher rank than him in the Cabinet. Lee Joon-hyuk (from Stranger) and Heo Joon-ho (from Kingdom) also star in the drama, the latter playing a new character at odds with Park.
