SEOUL, Nov. 6 (Korea Bizwire) – The filming set of the hit Korean drama “My Love from the Stars” will be replicated in Beijing for an exhibition, organizers said Friday.
The show’s producer SBS said it has joined forces with a Chinese entertainment company to put on display a large-size filming set from the TV series in the Chinese capital in March next year.
The 2013-14 soap series enjoyed huge popularity in South Korea and China, making its stars Kim Soo-hyun and Jun Ji-hyun household names especially among young Chinese viewers.
The drama is about an alien who landed on Earth 400 years ago and falls in love with a top actress in modern-day Korea.
In June, the broadcaster displayed the exact replica of the two main characters’ homes in a special exhibition at Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul, drawing much attention from the drama’s fans.
The recreated homes of Do Min-jun (played by Kim) and Cheon Song-yi (played by Jun) will also be put on display in the Beijing exhibit along with props and costumes used during shooting, according to SBS. Visitors can also experience the technology behind the scenes.
After Beijing, the exhibition will go on tour through other major Chinese cities, it added.’
