To meet the ever increasing demand of fans to further enjoy their most beloved television dramas, some popular South Korean shows are set to be turned into musicals.
The mega hit drama series starring actor Hyun Bin and actress Son Ye-jin, “Crash Landing On You” will be getting it’s own musical stage this upcoming September.
The popular show depicts star crossed lovers, one from North Korea and one from South Korea, who against all odds try and make their relationship work.
Another upcoming musical adaptation will be based off the 2016 rom-com “Another Miss Oh” which centers around two women who share the same name and the misunderstandings that occur between them and a man who can see into the future.
The musical version of the drama actually premiered two years ago but will be making a second run this time since it earned so much praise amongst local musical fans at it’s first opening.
The beloved TV series “Hotel del Luna” which starred singer-actress IU and her co-star actor Yeo Jin-goo will also be seeing a musical adaptation later this year.
The drama had been one of the highest-rated in Korea the year it released and found fans not just within Korea but internationally as well. The story revolves around a magical hotel for ghosts; it’s immortal owner, and a human who somehow ends up becoming the manager of the establishment.
