He added, "Nodame Cantabile's author (Tomoko Ninomiya) wants a 100% identical casting to Ueno Juri who played Noda Megumi. If she says no to our casting, we can't do anything about it."

However, Tomoko Ninomiya herself replied to someone who asked what is her final decision about the Korean casting through her twitter account this afternoon saying that she is not going to be involved in the Korean remake of 'Nodame Cantabile'.
