Indonesian Remake of "Kita Kita" CINTA ITU BUTA Shot in Busan

Kita Kita, the most successful Filipino indie film, has an Indonesian remake courtesy of movie director and writer Sigrid Andrea Bernardo. However, instead of following the original movie's shooting location which is in Japan, the Indonesian remake was shot in Busan, South Korea.

In the trailer, one of the locations that gets most of the exposure is the famous tourist spot in Busan which is the Gamcheon Cultural Village. It's an art village with colorful houses and a lot of interesting things to see in its alleys and corners. The main character of the movie also lives in this village.

Another interesting location as seen on its trailer is the Gwangan bridge. This bridge is considered as the longest bi-level bridge in Korea. There are several top view shots taken for this movie.

Of course, Busan is not without Haeundae beach. In some scenes of the trailer, we can see the couple enjoying boat sailing in the beautiful water of the beach.

Cinta Itu Buta will be shown in cinemas in Indonesia on October 10, 2019. There are several other interesting places in Busan which might be included in this movie and the only way to find out is to watch the full movie of Cinta Itu Buta.
