Eleven years after My Sassy Girl first hit theaters and went on to be a major box office hit, a television drama remake has now been green-lit.
Television drama production agency RamongRaein is pursuing a TV drama remake of the popular romantic comedy movie.
The agency had originally begun taking scripts early this year but was unable to settle on a script and writer until recently. It has since, settled on a potential script and is now targeting a premiere of the drama sometime in the latter half of 2013.
A source close to the production shared the agency is planning a 16-episode run and casting had yet to begun.
The original movie catapulted its main stars, Jun Ji Hyun and Cha Tae Hyun, to nationwide stardom. As such, many are wondering who will fill their big shoes and whether they will be able to find the same level of success as the original stars.
