“My Love From The Star”, the epic sci-fi romance drama that swept across many nations in Asia, is set to take over America with a remake from ABC network!
Starring Kim Soohyun & Jun Jihyun, “My Love From The Star” is a Korean hit TV series that sparked the beer and chicken craze in China. With its record-breaking viewership in both Korea and China, the series became the most expensive Korean drama sold in China and earned Jun Jihyun the highest award for TV at the Baeksang Art Awards.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the ABC’s remake will be based on the original Korean format, where an alien who has waited for the past several hundred years to return to his home planet, falls in love with a world-famous actress in the modern era.
The screenwriting duo Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain (The Vampire Diaries) will executive produce and pen the script for the adaptation. Bomi Moon from the flagship’s producer HB Entertainment and the program creator, Ji-Eun Park are also on board to executive produce the remake, alongside EnterMedia Contents, a US-based company founded by Sebastian Lee and David Kim.
In case you missed it, EnterMedia Contents will be teaming up with CBS to develop the American adaptation of Korean medical drama “Good Doctor”. The script of the remake will be written by Malaysian screenwriter Adele Lim and directed by Hawaii Five-o star Daniel Dae Kim.
