Seoul — Entertainment Megabox JoongAng Plus M shared an update on the film Bogota on Jun 23.

The movie is a crime thriller film set in the 90s directed by Kim Sung-Jae. It is about a young man in his thirties who emigrates to Columbia and tries to settle in a traditional market located in Bogota. Bogota first drew a lot of attention with its strong casting lineup of Song Joong Ki, Lee Hee Jun, and Kwon Hae Hyo.

The actors reportedly resumed in South Korea on Jun 21. In Jan 2020, they started filming in Columbia but the movie’s production crew and actors had to stop all filming activities in Mar 2020 due to the pandemic, as reported by Allkpop.

After reorganizing the production project, ‘Bogota’ plans to finish filming the remainder of their scenes in South Korea, for about three more months.
