“Uruk” is the fictional war-torn Mediterranean country where love never dies for our dearest main leads in popular K-Drama “Descendants Of The Sun”.
Although the series is set to end next week, fans can soon revisit their favourite drama moments because the military base in “Uruk” will be rebuilt as a tourist attraction soon at an old coal mine in Taebeak city, Gangwon Province!
It was previously reported that a majority of the scenes that took place in the fictional war country was actually filmed domestically in South Korea in the city of Taebaek. Many recognisable buildings from the drama like the barracks or the “medicube” were built on site for filming purposes.
The plan to rebuild the film set was supported by President Park Geun Hye, who mentioned in a secretariat meeting last month that the drama is a good opportunity for the nation to promote its culture to the world.
