CASTING NEWS: Ha Ji Won considers In Time With You remake for her next drama
Ha Ji Won may be headlining her next drama soon! According to representatives from SBS, the actress has been offered the lead role in the Korean remake of the popular Taiwanese drama In Time With You.
The 2011 Taiwanese drama, which starred Ariel Lin and Chen Bo Lin, is being remade by SBS with the tentative title The Time I Loved You, 7000 Days. The original series follows a man and a woman who have been best friends for 14 years. They make a bet to see who can get married first before they turn 35, but of course what they don't realize is that they have been in love with each other all along. The Korean remake will follow a similar plot, but the pair will be best friends for 20 years instead of 14. The writer for the series is Min Hyo Jung of Full House.
I already adore dramas where best friends fall in love, but once you add Ha Ji Won to the mix, this series gets a definite YES from me. Of course, she is still in the considering stage, so nothing is set in stone yet.
Would you like to see Ha Ji Won in this series? The even bigger question here is, if Ha Ji Won decides to accept, who should be cast as her male BFF? Personally, I would love to see a less-depressing reunion with her What Happened in Bali costar So Ji Sub...
