Behind the scenes of Road No. 1
MBC’s Korean War drama Road No. 1 has released behind-the-scenes shots of its large-scale production. The series began filming in January, and has currently shot five episodes’ worth of footage (apparently out of episode order). While the initial set of stills featured the main cast — stars So Ji-sub, Yoon Kye-sang, Kim Haneul — these show one of the largest-scale scenes of the drama, appearing in Episode 14, in which So and Yoon’s squad and U.S. troops are retreating together when they are bombarded by enemy fire.
The drama boasts a budget of 13 billion won and is set amidst the outbreak of the war on June 25, 1950. These scenes were filmed in the extensive plains of Gangwon-do’s Pyeongchang county, and covered 2,000 pyong in terrain (approximately 6,600 square meters, or 1.6 acres). The shoot also incorporated more than 200 extras and the use of dynamite.
Road No. 1 premieres in June.
