To film the chase scene, which involved over 100 cars and and 700 people, the production crew closed off Gwangali Beach in Busan at 8 p.m. They also filmed near the famous Jagalchi fish market Nampodong.
This is the second Marvel film to use South Korea as a filming location: “Avengers, Age of Ultron” was filmed in 2015 in Seoul.
The cast of “Black Panther” launched their international tour in Seoul on Feb. 5 to a large crowd that Boseman compared to a sold-out sporting event. The four main cast members all gave a photo opportunity with the trending heart sign using the thumb and index finger as popularized by K-pop celebrities.
