So Ji Sub’s upcoming SBS drama Ghost is making headlines for its blockbuster filming scale.
As part of its drama storyline, an important explosion scene was filmed recently for the drama. Shot at a closed coal briquette factory in Gangwon-do, the one-minute explosion scene filmed was revealed to have come at the cost of 200 million won (approximately 174,000 U.S. dollars. Utilizing eight large-scale cameras, the scene was shot using some 74 sticks of dynamite.
A drama production source said regarding the scene, “Both in terms of the drama’s storyline and for iconic reasons, a lot of investment was put into this one scene. Though the scene will only come out for a minute in the drama when it airs, the scene itself took three days to prepare and shoot. Though it was a difficult shoot and many of the actors and staff members had to endure a lot, we think a very neat-looking scene will be shown.”
Ghost revolves around the world of the cyber crimes investigation unit. In addition to So Ji Sub, the drama also stars Lee Yeon Hee, Choi Daniel and MBLAQ’s G.O.
