Designated Survivor: 60 Days (Korean: 60일, 지정생존자) is a 2019 South Korean television series based on the 2016–2019 American television series Designated Survivor. It stars Ji Jin-hee, Heo Joon-ho, Kang Han-na, Lee Joon-hyuk and Bae Jong-ok. The series aired on tvN and Netflix from July 1 to August 20, 2019.
Park Mu-jin (Ji Jin-hee) is the South Korean Minister of Environment, with little ambition as a politician. After a diplomatic incident involving free trade negotiations with the United States, and Park's dispute over numbers provided by its Environmental Protection Agency about pollution caused by imported cars, President Yang Jin-ma (Kim Kap-soo) dismisses him from the office.
The next day, as the President announces to the National Assembly that he is making peace with North Korea, the building explodes, killing all of the South Korean line of succession. Park Mu-jin, whose resignation had yet to become effective, survived the accident. He is sworn in as Acting President for 60 days, and starts uncovering the truth behind the bombing.
