Sung Yuri stalkers fans, take note

When it was announced that the cast of Swallow the Sun was heading to Las Vegas, you wondered where they’d be shooting.

Photos have been recently released showing Sung Yuri filming scenes on June 17, in which the actress rides a bicycle along the Strip. Her scenes start at the entrance to the Mirage casino/hotel as she heads toward the Bellagio, at which point her character runs inside on foot.

Swallow the Sun premieres July 8 (Wednesday) on SBS.

Those of us who have been to Vegas may recognize some of these locales. Here Sung Yuri begins her bike ride at the Mirage Hotel:

 
Here she nears the entrance area to the Bellagio:

 
And finally, she runs inside the Bellagio:

Hehe. She's a cutie.

Vegas in the day time looks NOTHING like it does at night. Bellagio during the day time reminds me of Disneyland.

@ #4 infatuated22, I was going to say the same thing... kekekeke... I never notice people biking on the strip, usually they walk. Probably there are some.. but hardly any, especially riding with a cute looking bicycle (with a basket in the front).. :-)

@ BellaMafia : i was about to say the same thing also. i never see anyone riding a bicycle in vegas, especially the ones with a basket in front. but i guess, it's already the tradition of korean series to ride a bicycle. hahaha

Its funny how they made a scene of her biking around the Vegas strip. Because that's not something you see everyday in Vegas.

OK, why the bike ride? Wouldn't that seem so out of place? I was in Vegas two weeks ago and I don't remember anybody riding a bicycle anywhere!

was there in October and it was freaken 89 degrees in the afternoon. i do NOT envy them shooting in the summer heat.

i do remember seeing a old latino man riding a bike w/ a basket on the back full of all those girlie cards... you know the ones that they hand out on EVERY corner that ppl take and throw on the sidewalk as soon as they walk away...

still would love to stalk Ji Sung... but don't wanna die of heat stroke. he's not THAT hot. heehee

Ive noticed that almost all (in my viewing experience) scenes shot in America are done in Vegas. Why is that? Why is Vegas such a draw for K-drama? Do they get discounts for shooting permits or something? Wouldn't San Fran be a much more appealing setting? Or how about Colorado with the majestic mountains? Or, i don't know, any other place in America that has a lower seediness factor than Vegas. I've never been. One day/night in Reno killed my soul for years.

@18 amydem... Not to mention the Mirage is kinda far from the Ballagio, and there are no really no good excess for bike riders to go from place to place.... but then again, this is the land of fiction.

In "Romance In Harvard".... they wanted to make us believe there are palm trees in Boston.

@21 Nom_Kitteh -

LOL.

Reno was, a few years ago, a real hole in the ground. Depressing during the day and more depressing at night, with bad smells in the streets and bad carpet indoors, old wizened people with beggars cups everywhere with no place to go, all you can eat buffets that just scream "DONT EAT HERE IF YOU VALUE YOUR LIFE"... just really sad. Reno is a lot nicer now, but still, I would recommend going only if you are planning a vacay that stays far away from Reno and more towards Lake Tahoe. Vegas, on the other hand, can be a real fun and clean place - it sort of depends on where you stay and what you do.

My guess is that k-people know Vegas, as a name, like they know New York, Harvard, and Obama. Hard to get away from that, especially if Korean production companies have already established contacts in Vegas to smooth the way. It can take significant research and making new contacts, and legwork to find and develop new filming spots. Like, Connecticut recently passed legislation for huge tax credits for film and tv production to come to Connecticut, but actually utilizing them and figuring out how to film in Connecticut is difficult enough for Hollywood, much less Korean production companies.

sorry this is OT, but I had to comment re: the clip above...

KHJ wearing guyliner...and what appears to be a halter top? o_O

@ Nom_Kitteh

Vegas used to be Reno-ish (except bigger) back in the day,
but now, it really is a resort destination.
If you like to gamble, you're in luck.
Like shows? -> Plenty to choose from.
Gourmand? -> Restaurants with world-famous chefs.
Want to indulge in a spa vacation or lounge by the pool? -> Pamper yourself.
Vegas has it all.

...hm...may have to go back sometime in the near future (when it's not too hot).

@ Nom_Kitteh, Swallow the Sun is All-In 2 (all about gambling). It's pretty understandable they picked Las Vegas, since LV is internationally renowned major resort city for gambling, shopping, fine dining, and entertainment.

Nom_Kitteh, if any celebrity were to come to Colorado, I'd be SO happy!! :D Nothing like the Rockies here! And the clean, fresh air would probably be good for the actors too.

Like any popular cities in the world, you'll find areas that are dirty and trashy. If you venture on the srip towards downtown area, then you'll notice the glamour and the glitz of the of Vegas are waning. I've lived here for the last 15 yrs. and I've been to the strip (strolling with friends from another states) maybe about 5 times. I hate going there because it is always crowded.

It is always hot here from late May until late August(100-115 degrees). But the humidity is very low so you don't sweat a lot.

Vegas has a lot to offer. That's probably the reason why so many people including celebreties come here.
I'll try the strip this weekened. Hopefully, I'll stumble to Jisung or Yuri. Or maybe The Palms or Hard Rock. Most celebrities hang out in those places.

In terms of location for shoots, I think cost + name recognition + 'production friendly' seem to go hand-in-hand. Even though San Francisco, New York or Hawaii may also have the same name recognition potential as Vegas, the three former cities are a lot more expensive in terms of hotel rooms and other general expenses. You can sometimes get good deals for Vegas' hotels etc. I can't speak for San Francisco and New York but I know Hawaii is not a favorite of Hollywood filmmakers. It's not very production friendly due to the large union influence, general higher cost for equipment, and some other reasons.

By the way, SYR riding the bicycle on the Strip does seem out of place.

Funny and very odd to see anybody riding a bike in the strip. I am a Vegas regular going there at least 4 times a year for the more than 10 years and I have NEVER seen anybody riding a bike. From Mirage to Bellagio, she has to pass Caesars's Palace and go up the escalator to take the bridge to get to Bellagio.  Mirage and Bellagio has the same owner, so they must have cut a deal with the casino owners. It would have been more realistic if that scene was shot in Atlantic City, as it is very common to see bikers in the boardwalk in the morning.Well,Vegas is really fantastic at night.However, summer time is a real killer as temperature goes up to 110F in the daytime. Looking forward to see this drama.To be honest,I  have not watch any new Kdrama since Boys Before Flowers.

I'm weird, the strip bores me. Glitzy adult theme park and me don't get along. Couple days there, I'll get a phobia fr noise of the slot machines. (and it peeved me to see slot machines in MickeyD's close the the playpens)

I would be glaring like the peeps in the bkgd too at SYR riding a bike in 100+ heat AND enjoying herself! :lol: The only way to survive in Vegas is to hop into EVERY single casino on the way fr pt A to B.

Yeah, riding a bike on the strip is kinda cracktastic/funny. And the little basket on the front is the cherry on top of that. Just wow.
