Netflix doubles down on the K-Drama genre with “Designated Survivor: 60 Days,” the Korean version of the hit TV series taken over by the streaming giant.

Designated Survivor: 60 Days traces the storyline of the original series, but is set in the middle of geopolitical tensions in the Korean Peninsula.

The Korean Tom Kirkman, ex-professor Park Mu-jin (Ji Jin-hee), who has been minister for environment for just six months, ascends to power and becomes acting president when the National Assembly building blows up and kills everyone in the line of succession.

Acting President Park searches for the brains behind the brazen attack and navigates among rival factions and well-entrenched Blue House bureaucrats to reach important decisions.

Unlike Kirkman, however, he only has 60 days until Koreans vote for a new president.

This is still a K-Drama, so expect tear-jerkers, Korean songs, and flashback stills at the end of each episode.

Designated Survivor: 60 Days premiered in June and will have 16 episodes. (PressONE.ph)
