Photos: Korean stars in Davao to shoot “No Breathing” movie

Here’s proof that Davao City is indeed safe and picturesque! Korean stars Lee Jong-Suk, Seo In-Guk and Park Jeong Cheol as well as South Korean film producers and crew are currently in my hometown Davao City to shoot a film entitled “No Breathing.” The local government of Davao even threw a welcome party for these popular South Korean actors.

Department of Tourism Regional Director Art Boncato said in this article (originally written by my friend Rudolph of the PIA) that Davao City was the film producers’ FIRST CHOICE! They visited Manila, Cebu and Davao. Apparently, the film producers were impressed by Davao City’s cleanliness and the abundance of natural resources plus the hospitality of the Dabawenyos. Woohoo!

Davao City will have about 15 minutes of exposure in “No Breathing.” I don’t know about you but I think that’s enough to showcase just how beautiful Davao is!

Boncato also said that the South Korean film producers brought with them 72 crew members and about 15 Korean actors. My friend Rudolph also told me that about 13 local Dabawenyo actors will serve as film extras.

Can you already imagine just how great this is for Davao tourism and for Mindanao in general?

“No Breathing” tells about the story of two national swimmers who are going for the top spot in the national team while falling for the same girl. The three characters suddenly find themselves having to juggle love, friendship, and competition, as they undergo the rite of passage of growing up. (source)

Apart from Lee Jong-Suk, Seo In-Guk and Park Jeong Cheol, this movie will also feature Kwon Yuri of Girls’ Generation fame.

The film “No Breathing” is set for theatrical release in the latter part of 2013.

Thanks to these Korean film producers and actors for choosing Davao!

Welcome to Davao – Life Is Here!
