Er, what now? Apparently MBC’s Kim Suro, the sageuk drama based on the founding myth of the Kaya nation, is going 3D, a first for a Korean television series.
According to producers, next month the drama will unveil its 3D portions (titles and making-of videos) after production has been completed. A sprawling battle scene that includes dozens of characters will unfold, literally, before our eyes. Ten minutes of the making-of video have already been filmed, and instead of converting that picture to 3D, it was actually shot from the get-go by 3D cameras.
There have been a few projects (on a smaller scale) that have used 3D video, such as the music video for Jo Sung-mo’s song “Days of Receiving Love,” which was the theme song to Sayonara Itsuka. The documentary Tears of Africa (which follows the hit Tears of the Amazon) is also being produced in 3D. The filming equipment used is the same used in Avatar.
Kim Suro stars Yoo Oh-sung, Bae Jong-ok, and Ji Sung. The first batch of 3D video previews will be released in mid- to late May.
