With so many suspense series out lately, 'Three Days' going for a more action-based approach was a risk. Drama audiences like certain, very specific things. Mainly heavy melodrama, makjang and romance. Even dramas which start off without relying heavily on those are often manipulated into featuring them, since ratings are the law in Dramaland. And this is where 'Three Days' makes a rare and great decision.
The series starts with a very simple premise, which is its title. We get to see the events that unfold during three non-consecutive days, as we go from an attempt against the President's life to a national crisis. Han Tae-kyeong (Micky Yoochun) is an agent for the Blue House's secret service and he is the character viewers follow as he is the go-to man in solving said crisis. The man he is trying to protect, President Lee Dong-hwi (Son Hyeon-joo) is a man haunted by his past and whose actions will determine the country's future.
