My Sassy Girl Drama Remake

As of December 20, 2012, it has been confirmed that the television drama production agency, RamongRaein is pursuing a TV drama remake of the hit romantic comedy movie, My Sassy Girl. (enewsworld)

The movie first hit theaters a little over eleven years ago and became an instant success. It went on to win multiple awards including Best Asian Film (Hong Kong Film Awards), Best Foreign Film (Awards of the Japanese Academy & Hochi Film Awards), and even helped actor Cha Tae Hyun ring in a Best New Actor award (Blue Dragon Awards) and actress Ji Hyun Jun ring in a Best Actress award (Grand Bell Awards).

Based on a series of true stories posted by Ho-Sik Kim on the internet describing his relationship with his girlfriend. These were later transformed into a best-selling book and the movie follows the book closely. It describes the meeting of Gyun Woo (Cha Tae Hyun) and an unnamed girl (Jun Ji Hyun). Gyun Woo is shammed into assisting the girl because the other passengers mistakenly think she is his girlfriend. Once he helps her, Kyun Woo develops a deep sense of responsibility for her which enables him to tolerate (somehow) the girls abuses. - IMBD

Catch up or re-watch the original My Sassy Girl here with English subs.

Earlier this year, RamongRaein began taking scripts but were unable to settle on a script and writer until recently. (Woooo!) It is rumored that the upcoming drama will feature sixteen episodes and will air in the later half of 2013. (Who's excited?!) Casting has yet to begin, as one can only wonder, "Who will fill these big shoes?" and "Will RamongRaein be able to find the same level of success as the original?" We shall see.

For the most part, I really hope the 'new' Gyun Woo will remember The 10 Rules:

#1 Don't ask her to be feminine

#2 Don't let her drink over 3 glasses

#3 Drink Coffee instead of Coke/juice

#4 If she hits you, act like it hurts. If it hurts, act like it doesn't

#5 On your 100th day together, give her a rose during her class

#6 Make sure you learn fencing and squash

#7 Be prepared to go to prison sometimes

#8 If she says she'll kill you, don't take it lightly!

#9 If her feet hurt, exchange shoes with her

#10 She likes to write. Encourage her ♥

    Oh my gosh this movie was my first Korean ANYTHING. I am very excited. But I hope the Hong sisters write the screenplay for the drama! Only they can re-create the magic.

    This is one of my most loved Korean drama. I still love it! I love that Sassy Girl was nameless and mean, I like the scripts Sassy Girl wrote had meaning, and I love that GyunWoo was not so good looking and stupidly patient. I hated the American remake that did not keep the characters similar to the original movie, nor was it even as touching as the original. Seriously, American remake was crap. My Sassy Girl is awesome as it is. I hope the idea of remaking this movie into a drama is to show us something better, greater, more outstanding than the original, not just extending the story through out the 16 episodes. Seriously. And please cast a funny and not-so-good-looking-but-also-not-so-ulgy-looking guy for the role of GyunWoo, like Lee Min Ki or Kim Sung Oh (Secret Garden's Secretary Kim).

    Loved the movie. My heart broke somewhere in the middle but it ended in a neat pretty bow. I hope the drama writer does justice to it. I'm keeping an open mind about watching the drama. Besides, I don't hear any complaints about the remake of KJH's My Girlfriend is an Agent--which could be a hit or not. *cough, cough*

    'My Girl' by the Temptations will always be a classic favorite of mine.

    I loved this movie, (omg the rules hit me with a wave of nostalgia) but I really wonder how they'll be able to turn this into a drama, I think it's better to just leave it be.

    I didn't like the movie, and now a whole drama? Did they run out of ideas? *Sigh*

    I loved the movie. I hope they are able to capture the same feel it gave me when they make the drama. ^^

    Now I know why the girl looks familiar. She's also the female lead in Il Mare. (Side comment: pics #4 and #5 give off a feel similar to Cyborg She.) Now I think I need to watch the movie; wasn't really interested before. Although even if it's good, it doesn't guarantee the same for the drama. I'll be looking forward to the remake's trailer though!

    Those 10 rules rule! Rule # 10, I <3 you.
