What we have been waiting is the progress news of remaking the popular Japanese drama ‘Itazura na Kiss’ into the Korean version entitled ‘Playful Kiss’. The young Korean actress Park Bo Young is on the priority to take the role in the drama. However, we haven’t heard the confirmation yet from Park’s side.
According to a source of the production company, they have recently held and audition to a hundred hopefuls for the lead role. Meanwhile, they had been chosen PD Hwang In Roi who helmed Korean drama ‘Goong’ and ‘Return of Iljimae’, and writer Go Eun Nim to direct and pen the drama.
Park rose her popularity after her lovely and wonderful acting as a single mom in the most popular Korean movie in 2008 ‘Speeding Scandal’ alongside the top Korean actor Cha Tae Hyun.
The filming will begin soon in July, after they finish the casting in late June. The drama is planned to broadcast for fall, following the Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Road No. 1’.
