Behind the scenes with Kim Bum (New Caledonia)

Some of you might have already seen these photos of Kim Bum (Boys Before Flowers) behind the scenes in New Caledonia. He posted them on his mini-hompy some time back.

Kim Bum seems happiest reading and discussing his lines with Producer-Director (PD) Jun Ki-sang. In the drama, the 20 year-old actor (he's the youngest among the F4 guys) plays rich playboy So Yi-jung.

The making of the KBS2 drama took the cast and crew of BBF to two overseas filming locations -- New Caledonia (Episodes 5 and 6) and Macau.

If you were taken in by the breath-taking scenes in New Caledonia, here's a bit of information about the island.

According to wikipedia:

New Caledonia is located in the southwest Pacific Ocean, east of Australia and northwest of New Zealand. The island nation of Vanuatu (if you watched Survivor Vanuatu this island would ring a bell) lies to the northeast.

Captain James Cook discovered New Caledonia in 1774. The name "Caledonia" is derived from the Latin name of an area corresponding to modern Scotland. Upon discovering the island, its rugged coastline reminded Captain Cook (whose father is a Scot) of Scotland, and thus named it New Caledonia.
Hmm...maybe we will consider going to New Caledonia for our next vacation.

well, New Caledonia looks very pretty and even a lot of people wanna go there for honeymoon after it was shown in BBF.

but from Happy Together's interview with Hye Sung, Hyun Joong & Kim Joon, they had a hard time while filming there and they don't want to go back there... Hyun Joong did say if his future wife wanna go NC for honeymoon, he'll divorce her straight away... hihi!!!

well, they said there's a lot of restriction there! kim joon mentioned that they have to be careful with a lot of things... such as lizard is endangered species in NC, and if we accidentally step on it, we can be kicked out from the country...

here are clips of their interview talking bout their filming in NC (last 2 mins)

Yea! New Caledonia is a really gorgeous place! I searched abt the place and MAN is it super duper expensive!! The resort they were staying at, Coral Palms Island Resort is like RM4k plus for the over-the-water bungalow... It's RM2500+ for garden-view rooms and another 2/3 hundred top up for sea view... *FAINTS*

It's my ultimate getaway destination... it's everything I could ever dream of! Clear, turquoise water with abundant aquatic wildlife and not to mention and fine pure white sand~~ *sheer bliss*

BUT... according to past experiences from travelers, this hotel does not live up to their 5 star status... Bad service, poor choice and bad tasting food, and to get to the island whr the hotel is was a huge prb. People waited so long for the ferry.

But then again, there are always other cheaper alternatives right?
One of them is Ile Des Pins Hotels =)
much much cheaper and better quality...

Haha... Sounds like I'm promoting the place... Sighs... I so wanna go thr but my wallet won't allow me to *sobs*

With that kind of prices, you can go to Malaysia's Pangkor Laut resort. Service there is excellent!

Joe said...

I agree.. Malaysia also has places like that.. you don't have to go too far.
