Even though I did not watch the original Designated Survivor, but I did hear about this series before. This might not be one of my must-watch since it is a political drama which is not my preferred genre.

Ji Jin Hee confirmed for the lead role of Park Moo Jin and it will be airing in the first half of 2019.
