Seoul City officials said the production team from the Discovery Channel had completed filming of the Han River, Namsan, Myeong-dong, Hongdae, and other popular sights. The documentary will be included in a series of documentaries about travel destinations set to begin in January of next year.
The documentary titled, "Hip Korea," will be divided into two parts and will feature Rain and Lee Byung-hun as hosts.
The first segment, hosted by Rain, will be titled, "Seoul Vibes," while Lee`s will be titled, "Seoul Savvy." Each segment will last 45 minutes.
Rain will cover Hongdae, Cheongdam-dong, and the Cheonggye stream, seeking to portray a dynamic city alive with energy. Lee will cover the up-market Apgujeong district, Insa-dong, and Samcheong-dong focusing on the "tranquil and romantic aura of the city."
