“Bargaining” will tell the story of a kidnapping that takes place in the Middle East and the attempted rescue of the 23 kidnapping victims. It is based on the 2007 South Korean hostage crisis in Afghanistan. “Bargaining” will be the first Korean film to film overseas since COVID-19 hit.
On the morning of July 13, Hyun Bin, Hwang Jung Min, and the film’s production team went to Incheon International Aiport and left for Jordan. When they arrive in Jordan, they will undergo inspections in accordance with local quarantine procedures and then immediately begin self-isolation to continue filming in safety.
“Bargaining” was supposed to start filming in March, but the unexpected spread of COVID-19 around the world forced the cast and crew to put their plans to a halt. The production team continued their discussions with the Jordanian government, and after much waiting, they finally received permission to enter the country for filming.
Some of the new films that are currently affected by the COVID-19 incident include “Bogotá” starring Song Joong Ki and Lee Hee Joon, “Kidnapping” (literal title) starring Ha Jung Woo and Joo Ji Hoon, and “The Outlaws 2.”
Megabox Plus M, the distributor of “Bargaining,” shared, “‘Bargaining’ will focus on filming in Jordan for the time being. The specific dates of filming and their return to Korea will depend on the situation at the site. Both the cast and crew will return safely from filming.”
