It’s official! K-dramas are taking over American television sets!
A major broadcasting company ABC has gained the copyrights to make their adaptation of the popular Korean drama “You Who Came From the Stars” which is the latest drama to have its copyrights borrowed by an American broadcasting company following NBC’s own adaptation of “Grandpas Over Flowers” and CBS‘s upcoming adaptation of the medical drama “Good Doctor.” The show’s creator Ji-eun Park along with, Bomi Moon, and Sebastian Lee will act as exec producers for the American adaptation while HB Entertainment and EnterMedia Contents will be in association with Sony Pictures Television. David Kim will act as co-producer, writers Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain, who are responsible for penning out popular shows such CW‘s “The 100,” “666 Park Avenue,” “The Vampire Diaries,” and “Dollhouse,” are said to be on board to make this upcoming project a reality.
The US adaptation will stick to the original drama and use the original format with minor tweaks. The drama will center around James, an extra terrestrial who has been residing on Earth for past few centuries and who has become disillusioned with an ill amount of respect for the residents who reside on the planet. The drama will also focus on Lark, an arrogant world re-known actress. Their fates become tied when James is forced to break his one rule which is to never intervene in the petty lives of those around in order to save Lark from an unlikely foe. Just as he has finally found a way to return to his home to the stars he must decide whether or not to go or leave Lark, a woman he can’t help but be drawn to.
