tvN has released a new teaser for its upcoming drama Cliffhanger, starring Jun Ji-hyun and Joo Ji-hoon.
The teaser starts on a lighthearted note, with veteran park ranger Seo Yi-kang (portrayed by Jun) loudly declaring: “I hate mountains.” Meanwhile, rookie ranger Kang Hyun-jo (portrayed by Joo) states that the two are “Mount Jiri’s needle and thread”.
Before the trailer ends, a series of clips showing distressed mountaineers and bloody equipment flash onscreen. “We weren’t the only ones in the mountain that day. Someone is killing people on that mountain,” Jun says.
