Road No. 1 wraps filming

The drama is a week and a half from its premiere, but already MBC’s Road No. 1 has completed all the filming on its 16 episodes. The production wrapped on June 12 and is now in post-production, meeting its goal of being 100% done with shooting prior to broadcast.

I’m a little annoyed that the reports gave away the details of the final shoot, so here it is under spoiler notice for those of you who don’t want to know what the ending involves. [SPOILER] The war results in an unavoidable separation of the drama’s leads — no doubt referring to the characters played by So Ji-sub and Kim Haneul — and they finally meet again after sixty years have passed. As the war broke out on June 25, 1950, that places the last scene in contemporary times. [/END SPOILER]

Director Lee Jang-soo said, “I really wanted to finish filming ahead of time, as planned from the start. I’m thankful for the staff and cast, who followed me with stamina of steel.”

Star So Ji-sub said, “Finally, this long six-month run has ended. I’m glad now that filming is over, but I also feel pretty sad. I’m really grateful that we were able to finish without anyone getting badly hurt and without accidents.”

His co-star Kim Haneul siad, “The six months I lived as Soo-yeon have felt pretty long. Because I’ve gotten so deeply into her character, it doesn’t feel real that we’ve ended. This is a drama that gave me a lot of experience and broadened my horizons as an actor. I’m looking forward to the first broadcast with excitement.”

Yoon Kye-sang said, “It feels like just the other day that filming began, but it’s really passed by swiftly. This drama will last in my memory for a long time. Since it’s the final shoot, it would have been nice for the other actors who were part of the troops to have been part of it, since all worked hard together.”

Road No. 1 premieres next Wednesday, June 23.

With Yoon Kye-sang starring I have such high hopes for this drama. His comment makes his personality seem just as appealing as his acting. :D

Why did they gave so much spoilers! i quess i wont be watching this even though i love the leads. War dramas are always so depressing to me. No matter how it ends it's always sour to the mouth.

so interesting, the difference among the three stars in their attitudes toward the 6 months of filming. Haneul: it's been forever! Kye-sang: feels like we just got here! SJS: somewhere in between but closer to Haneul. ^^

@Liz, you prolly don't want to see the spoilers, so DON'T mouse over the text between the words "Spoiler" above. if you do, you'll see the words that otherwise look like a blank space. Isn't JB clever to hide it from those of us who don't want to read it?

I usually do not like war themed dramas because almost always it is not a straightforward happy ending.. most of the times it is sad and tragic, sometimes it is melancholic and bittersweet. At least these drama is ONLY 16 episodes long, so I won't get tortured for too long..

Plus Yoon Kye Sang!!!! Road No. 1 fighting!! I hope we get our 50% ratings this time!! ( I know JB explained before that it would be impossible for any 16 episode drama to hit that high during this time and age... but a girl can dream!!)

I totally had a debate with one of my friends as to whether or not it was good that this drama is filmed and produced ahead of time. Personally, I think it's a good thing and it makes me excited for this drama because that means that it'll probably be of higher quality both acting and production wise. Sure, it might not be able to adjust to people's complaints but whatever, that could prove to be a good thing!

wow, they're done before filming?!!...this has to be the first time im hearing this for a korean drama...i guess it makes sense since its a war drama...it would be too tenuous to do a live shoot thing...ive been waiting for this since its announcement as i love the cast...even though i usually stay away from any war related movies and dramas (too much pain in the process..im not much of a masochist) ...and after hearing about all those awesome cameos....im certainly hooked...im not a fan of the spoiler..but at least no one dies (or so i think..please!..please!..pretty please!)

Not all war dramas/movies have sad endings. A good example of a war movie with a happy ending is "Shining Through" (1992) with Michael Douglas and Melanie Griffith as lead actors. It may not be the best war movie out there, but it ended happily for the lead characters.

I think the spoiler ending is completely PERFECT for this drama's ending! Because it's historically accurate and true.....

The war does do things like that.....[[ SPOILER ] snoitarapes [reversed] and such.....

I cant wait!

@charitee,

"I totally had a debate with one of my friends as to whether or not it was good that this drama is filmed and produced ahead of time."

I kinda feel this is more an example of Hallyu enabling ambition rather than encouraging companies to pander the same product. Like Iris, Friend, Legend of Four Gods, Road No 1 is a Hallyu luxury/event drama. It's being funded by foreign investors, loaded with Hallyu actors, and it's being produced like a film. As a result, the production companies decide on a shooting schedule that best accomodates this.

16 episodes is shocking though.

wow..., wraps before airing. that's new and really great. hope so. because that means they really prepare this drama to be as good as everyone expect, including me. can't wait to watch this drama. hope so ji sub will play great. about 16 episodes, i don't care so much. honestly i'm kind of tired watch too much episodes drama like east of eden and queen seondeok. maybe because i always marathon my DVD in day, haha, so it's find for me. thanks javabeans for writing about this. hope you can write the recaps because i'm not a tv person. i never watch the drama on tv. i'm a dvd person. so i usually just read the drama from your web while waiting for the dvd out. please dramabeans, make the recaps...
thank you :)

ha, ha, ha ...just find out what the spoiler is all about, after following this site for quite sometime...two thumbs up for JB!!

Every time I watch war movie/drama, I always think humans being are addicted to war, wonder why my self......see even i hate so much war (no one is winner in war, all are losers), I still watch war film/drama (makes me more wonder why humans like war and never learn about the consequences....) and there are plenty good movies/dramas out there...
