tvN Big Budget Sageuk Asadal Chronicles to Goes Overseas to Brunei for Location Shoot


This isn’t huge huge K-drama news but there are K-drama fans everywhere in the world and I’m sure someone will be excited to hear a big budget high profile drama is coming to their neck of the woods to film. tvN sageuk Asadal Chronicles has set out this week for an extended overseas location shoot in Brunei. Male lead Song Joong Ki has already flown there with the first production team and his other leads Jang Dong Gun, Kim Ji Won, and Kim Ok Bin will likely follow. As far as I’m aware there hasn’t been a K-drama filmed on location in Brunei, and also I don’t remember a saeguk going overseas for filming. Sageuks are set in historical Korean times so the filming is usually the countryside and also built sets. This further confirms how Asadal Chronicles is aiming to break new ground and we’ll see if the viewers tune in for this epic tale when it airs later in 2019.
