The Mayor of Granada is overjoyed that the city is going to play host to the shooting of a Korean, TV series that will be screened on Netflix.
The series is called Memories of the Alhambra. It’s a fantasy melodrama about investment company CEO Yoo, Jin Woo (Hyun Bin) who visits Spain and stays at a hostel run by Jung Hee Joo (Park Shin Hye). The director is the same one that did another Netflix series, Strangers.
The filming started yesterday and will run until Friday and scenes will be shot on Calle Correo Viejo, Calderería Nueva, Mirador de San Miguel Alto, Puente Espinosa, Colegio Ave María and la Fuente de las Granadas.
The series will star Hyun Bin, one of the most famous Korean actors of the moment and will air this November.
Mayor Francisco Cuenca considers that this will represent a lift for local tourism and will have a direct economical impact during the filming as the 140-man film crew will knock up 1,200 overnight stays between them. Furthermore 40 locals have been hired whilst the filming takes place.
