“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”.

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.

The particular military base setting was demolished after the filming ended, but Taebaek’s tourist information centre revealed that due to the increasing demand for the sets the drama used to film, specific plans regarding the set are still being discussed, and they plan on “recreating the (set) atmosphere until the end of this month, and have it fully restored by the end of June.”
Isn’t that good news? Time to get your camouflage gear ready for a vacation to the country of “Uruk” 🙂
