The business agreement created a win-win strategy for both sides as Yeongam-gun would provide locational and financial support for the drama in return for publicity from the production team of the F1 Competition that will be held from October 22nd and of major tourist spots and regional agricultural products.
“SungKyunKwan Scandal”, a 24 episode historical youth drama, will be filmed in Goorim Village, the rising mecca of Hanok (traditional Korean houses) villages, and with 400 million Won of support from the regional government, the drama will boost the region’s economy by four billion won. The drama is also expected to aid in the creation and expansion of new tourism-centralized industries around the Goorim Hanok Village.
A representative of the region stated, “The filming of the drama will greatly help the image of Yeongam-gun,” and “We are looking into signing MOUs with other dramas looking to film in major Yeongam tourist spots such as Wolchool Mountain in order to better the brand worth of Yeongam.”
Till now, Yeongam has increased its brand worth as a drama filming location through KBS’ ‘Two Days and One Night’ as well as the drama ‘Road Number One’.
The drama, which is based off the original novel “The Lives of SungKyunKwan Confucian Scholars”, tells the stories of friendship and love between the lead role, who dresses up as a man to pass an examination for her bedridden brother, and Lee Seon Joon, Micky Yoochun’s character.
