Are you a K-Dramas lover? You would have watched nice dramas that were filmed out of Korea like in the U.S. but that is not all of the filming locations!
The production teams also go to Europe. It is a large continent and many dramas which were filmed there embraced the various cultures and landscapes. Central-eastern Europe is popular such as “Descendants of the Sun” in Greece and “Are You Human Too?” recently being filmed in Czech Republic. However, Western Europe is favored too.
Be aware that the terms western, central and eastern Europe have different delimitations depending on concepts.
