ABC to remake Korea's hit drama 'Man From The Stars' for US viewers

Posted: 18 Sep 2014 09:00 PM PDT



It is confirmed that broadcast station ABC is going to air their remake of Korea's hit drama 'Man From The Stars' (which stars Jun Ji Hyun and Kim Soo Hyun) and the production is already in progress.

Quoted from The Hollywood Reporter,

"Based on the Korean format, My Love explores why a superhero has to save the world and asks why he can't save just one girl. ABC's take is described as epic supernatural love story about a world-famous actress, Lark, and her anti-social neighbor, James, who happens to be from another planet. Disillusioned by the pettiness of human nature, and a resident of Earth for the past several hundred years, James has a centuries-old rule that he will never use his abilities to intervene in the lives of the people around him. But when he gets a premonition that the infuriatingly self-centered but compelling Lark is going to be murdered, James finds himself drawn into her chaotic life and falling deeply in love — just as he finally has the chance to return to his home in the stars."

As for the script of the remake, The Vampire Diaries' Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain are going to work in hand with the original creator as executive producer, JiEun Park. The ABC remake will be produced by HB Entertainment and EnterMedia Contents in association with Sony Pictures Television.

With this adaptation, it only proves that the Korean dramas are being loved not only in Asia. Are you expectant of the US remake?
