Filming of IRIS at Gwanghwamun Square

Filming of IRIS at Gwanghwamun Square

Gwanghwamun Sqaure is centrally located in Seoul and will be where we start our day. To get 
there, take the subway to Line 5 Gwanghwamun Station and walk out exit 9. Gwanghwamun 
(Gate), once the main entrance to Gyeongbokgung (Palace), is one of the most iconic cultural 
landmarks of Korea. Over the years, Gwanghwamun and Gwanghwamun Square have made a 
number of appearances in films and dramas. IRIS, a hit 2009 blockbuster drama, probably had 
the most spectacular scene of all. A realistic warzone was created in the middle of downtown 
Seoul with high profile stars, like Lee Byung-hun, Kim Tae-hee, Kim Seung-woo, and Choi 
Seung-heyon (TOP of Big Bang), 200 extras, 80 cars, and over 4000 bullets and gernades. 
Though you won't be able to see the action in person, it's pretty cool to think that a scene like 
that was shot at a location like this. Don't forget to stop by cuivd, a gift shop located right below 
the plaza.
