“The Penthouse: War in Life” will be filmed at Fairmont’s first hotel in South Korea
The new episodes featuring Fairmont Ambassador Seoul are scheduled to air by the end of November 2020. According to The Penthouse storyline, Logan Lee returns to Korea from the United States and sets up residence in the hotel. The Penthouse series, directed by Joo Dong-min and written by Kim Soon-ok, weaves a dramatic and entertaining tale of high society, fierce ambition, and glamorous real estate.
“For more than a century, the staff at Fairmont hotels around the world have done their best to meet and surpass the expectations of all guests, including filmmakers,” said Sharon Cohen, vice president, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. “When filmmakers and directors want to portray luxury accommodations that truly represent their destinations, they often focus their cameras on Fairmont locations.”
Korean fans of Sex and the City and The Sopranos, and the classic film Breakfast at Tiffany’s already adore one of Fairmont’s most iconic hotels, The Plaza, a Fairmont Managed Hotel in New York. Famous American television shows such as legal drama Suits and The Good Wife, which were remade and aired in Korea, were filmed at Fairmont Royal York in Toronto and Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. For Korean fans of Chinese movies, Fairmont Peace Hotel will always be a reminder of Shanghai Triad, starring Gong Li.
