Eli of U-KISS will play the lead in Chinese remake of the classic K-drama Full House
Asian countries consistently recycle drama ideas from each other. For example, the manga Hana Yori Dango has Taiwanese and Japanese versions that came out before the 2009 adaptation Boys over Flowers, and that's just one case of many. The latest remake announcement comes from China, where the classic K-drama Full House will appear in a new form.
Production company Group 8 will co-produce the Chinese version of Full House in conjunction with the Chinese company Asia Media Holdings. Group 8 also produced Tomorrow's Cantabile, which is a remkae of the manga Nodame Cantabile and its Japanese adaptation.
As you may know, the original Full House starred Rain and Song Hye Gyo as a popular actor and a struggling writer who are forced to get married for a year and share a house. Of course, as it generally does with K-drama forced marriages, romance ensues. So far, the producer for the Chinese remake is Lee Min Chul, and the main actor will be Eli of the K-pop boy band U-KISS. The main actress will be decided in auditions after a press conference in Shanghai on October 23.
