Korea is a hidden gem for production. Being a small country with a wide variety of different terrain, it’s quite possible to shoot from a mountain location to a river, ocean, beach all in a single day. It’s an affordable and efficient place to shoot for good value for tight budgets.
Korea’s filming regulations aren’t as strict or harshly enforced as other countries. Shooting permits can be obtained reasonably fast for most locations (7-10 days for drone permits). And many issues can be avoided
with a smile and a little common sense.
It also helps that the Korean film industry is fast paced and agile. Allowing you to get a lot more done in a quicker and more efficient way than most other countries.
