Since the reopening of the direct air route linking Da Nang city with the Republic of Korea (RoK)’s Incheon, the central Vietnamese city has become more popular among Korean stars and Key Opinion Leaders (KoLs).
The municipal Department of Tourism said that since the resumption of Da Nang-Incheon flights in April, this city has welcomed five famous film crews and TV channels such as SBS, IHQ and partners, with the participation of many famous Korean stars such as Lee Joon-Gi, Lee Je-Hoon and Kim Yoo-Bin, and KoLs in the fields of tourism and sports like Cho Eun-bi, Kim Hye-Lin, Kim Ah-Ryong.
The visits by prestigious Korean artists and film crews have contributed to affirming Da Nang is not only a resort paradise, but also an ideal destination for international cinema works.

According to Da Nang International Terminal Investment and Operation Joint Stock Company (AHT), some areas of the terminal were included in the filming of the movie by a crew of SBS TV and its partner Club House.
Previously, in June, Vietnamese fans were excited when actor Lee Joon-Gi came to Da Nang to film and have many experience in the beautiful coastal city, including Cham sculpture museum, Hoa stream tourist area, cafes, and Da Nang beach.
