“New Journey to the West” will be filming in India.

While the cast and crew of “New Journey to the West” filmed in China for the first three seasons, the fourth season will take place in India. According to Ilgan Sports, PD Na Young-seok along with several crew members have already completed scouting the location. The crew will begin filming in early May.

According to PD Shin Hyo-jeong, the cast will be searching for Buddhist scriptures in India. Since there were cast changes in the previous two seasons, this time, the show decided to change locations to add variety to the show. PD Shin Hyo-jeong declined offering more specifics about the location because privacy is required in order for the crew to film freely. She thanks fans for their interest, but they need secrecy in order to play games and race outside. 

Season four will air in June.
