So Ji Sup Filming In Harsh Conditions for Cain and Abel

The production team of SBS Cain and Abel are now in China for overseas filming. A production still showed So Ji Sup with a bloodied face lying on the sand, showing his strong will to live against the unforgiving desert.


For the opening and other related scenes for Cain and Abel. So Ji Sup together with the production team came to the deserts near the outskirts of Inner Mongolia and Western China for filming. The filming lasted 7 days and 6 nights as they battled against the unforgiving harsh desert enviroment. While it was scorching hot in the day with temperatures nearing 40° celsius, it would turn unbearably cold at night with the temperature dropping to 0° and below. But the production team chose to film in such harsh conditions because they felt it complemented the cold unforgiving theme for Cain and Abel very well.

So Ji Sup expressed, “The weather was harsh and everyone had a really rough time, but we did our best in order for a good outcome.” Cain and Abel revolves around the story between two brothers who are doctors with different set of values as they face off against each other in their careers and love. Other cast members include Han Ji Min, Shin Hyun Joon and Chae Jung Ahn.
