Inspired by the "real time" format of American series 24, the narrative of Three Days is divided into three parts; Part 1: The Prelude, Part 2: The Showdown, and Part 3: Judgement, with each segment lasting for 72 hours.
The President of South Korea goes on holiday at a private villa. In the middle of the night, three gunshots are fired, and the president goes missing. His bodyguards, led by elite agent Han Tae-kyung, have three days to find the president and escort him safely back to the Blue House.
Three Days follows the intertwining fates of those sworn to protect the president, the president himself, his political staff, and the true power players in the shadows who decide whether he lives or dies.
Three Days initially encountered pre-production difficulties. After negotiations stalled between production company Golden Thumb Pictures and broadcaster SBS, on December 4, 2013, SBS removed the drama from its February 2014 programming slate. Five days later, SBS changed its mind and placed the drama back in its original airing schedule. But lead actor Park Yoochun, who had already re-adjusted his shooting schedule for the film Haemoo after the supposed cancellation of Three Days' timeslot, found the schedules of those two projects overlapping, leaving his casting uncertain. On December 20, 2013, a press release confirmed that Park was still the lead actor, and that his scheduling problems had been resolved. Park then underwent training in fighting and defense skills for his role as a presidential bodyguard. He continued filming despite suffering a shoulder injury on set.
Screenwriter Kim Eun-hee (who previously penned Sign and Phantom) had worked on the show's concept for over two years. Prior to filming, she had already written 6 episodes of the 16-episode series, in order to give the cast ample time to prepare and get into character.
The first script reading took place on November 13, 2013 at SBS Ilsan Production Center. With a budget of ₩10 billion, filming of the series began on December 26, 2013, and the broadcasting ended on May 1.
