Juvenile Justice Filming Locations
Juvenile Justice was filmed inside North Gyeongsang, South Korea. Filming began on 4 May 2021 and wrapped up in June 2021. Around Nov 2020, it was confirmed that Soo has accepted the offer from Netflix. Most of the filming took place in the easternmost region of South Korea. The film sets in Yeonhwa which is a suburban town located around 17 Kilometers away from Daegu where Squid Game was filmed.
The place was known as the electronics capital but now it has broadened its economy and turned into an overall great performer. Even though, the director shared that the film was shot in Gyeongsang only, the real Yeonhwa was used to shoot some scenes.
A production special video was released on 22 Feb 2022 which shows the complete struggle of the cast members while they were working on the series. They have to look sharp and perform with the same mindset.
Remember, the time when lead star Kim Hyesoo sent support truck to Hyeonsoo while she was filming Snowdrop but the fun fact is they don’t know each other because they have never worked together. This might be a sign of possible closeness between the two.
