[TALK OF THE TOWN]Watch out world, Korean singer and actor are ready for discovery
Rain and hallyu star Lee Byung-hun (right) have been “discovered.”
The Discovery Channel announced Monday that it filmed a documentary featuring the two stars in Seoul recently.
The 90-minute documentary is called “Hip Korea,” and the two stars appear in the first half of the show called “Seoul Savvy.” The other segment is called “Seoul Vibes.”
Filming Rain took place mainly in Hongdae in northern Seoul and Cheongdam-dong in southern Seoul, where he was presented as a dynamic and youthful person.
Lee was portrayed as a more romantic figure, and his scenes were shot in quieter areas like Insa-dong and Samcheong-dong in central Seoul.
Hip Korea will be broadcast on the Discovery Channel in Australia next month, New Zealand and Southeast Asia in February and Europe in May.
