Taiwanese drama In Time With You is getting a Korean remake
The hit Taiwanese drama In Time With You will soon be getting a Korean version! The remake of this popular 2011 drama is slated to air mid-2015 and writer Min Hyo Jung, whose credits include the Hallyu sensation Full House, is set to write this adaptation.
In Time With You follows the story of two best friends who slowly come to realize their love for each other. Its realistic and heartfelt style of storytelling shot this drama to fame when it aired. It also didn't hurt that Ariel Lin and Chen Bo Lin had fantastic chemistry.
The screenwriter of the original story has already announced her wish list of Korean actors and actresses to play her characters. For Li Da Ren, the perfect and caring boy-next-door, she'd love to see So Ji Sub or Gong Yoo in the role. For Cheng You Qing, the confident, but rather stubborn heroine, she could see Jeon Ji Hyun or Jung Yoo Mi doing an excellent job playing this character.
While I absolutely love both So Ji Sub and Gong Yoo, I think I would prefer a slightly younger actor in this role. My dream casting for Li Da Ren would be Sung Joon who starred in Shut Up Flower Boy Band and I Need Romance 3. He's already proven that he can play the perfect boy-next-door character and there's something about him that just screams Li Da Ren. Also, doesn't he look rather similar to Chen Bo Lin?
