Directed by PD Yang Yun Ho of the hit drama ‘Iris‘,
the drama is staffed by the same special effects team and is quickly
being nicknamed by fans of the original drama as ‘Iris 2′.
Their latest scenes recorded involved a motorcycle chase scene along
with a car explosion that took days to actually complete due to the
security measures involved and the amount of timing it takes to make
sure everything happens on cue.
Kim Hyun Joong showed ease with his motorcycle and impressed
producers with his natural skill on the bike, creating a heavy,
tension-filled atmosphere on the set as soon as the PD’s “Action!” rang out into the air.
The staff actually exploded two cars on the set for the scene, making
for one dangerous work environment due to the debris and the fire, but
everyone is trucking on for the sake of the drama.
A representative revealed, “We’ve completely redone the original
story of ‘City Conquest’ so we’re trying to keep the plot under wraps as
much as possible. The motorcycle chase and the car explosion scenes are
just the beginning of more to come.”
