South Korea

The capital Seoul is a bustling megacity known for its modern skyline, Gyeongbokgung Palace, Namdaemun Gate, Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Myeongdong district, and Cheonggyecheon Stream. South Korea is a relatively expensive place to shoot, certainly compared to the rest of Asia. Korea has a similar price point to Japan, USA and Western Europe.​ The country has a good pool of local directors, directors of photography and stills photographers. Korean crews are non-union and have a reputation for being very hard working. Although there is a good depth of professional, experienced crews, unfortunately most do not speak fluent English, so additional translators may be required. SFC provides the cost of Seoul location scouting for directors, producers, cinematographers, production designers, or location managers of international projects planning to shoot in Seoul.
