Kdrama romance is coming to India. In a recent announcement made by JTBC, Jung Hae In and Son Ye Jin’s hit romantic drama something in the rain will get an Indian remake. On February 21, JTBC Studios announced that their hit 2018 drama would be getting an Indian makeover. With Kdrama’s growing popularity in India, fans are wildly excited for more news about the remake.
Kdramas and Indian Entertainment are famous for their dramas and floating romance. With Something In The Rain having an emotional and heartwarming plot, Kdrama fans would love to see it take on an Indian twist.
“Something In the Rain” chronicles the romantic relationship between Yoon Jin Ah (Son) and his best friend’s younger brother, Seo Joon Hae (Jung). It highlights the relationship between an older woman and a younger man.
Kdrama ‘Something In The Rain’ To Get Indian Remake
On Monday, JTBC shared a statement announcing that India’s biggest digital company, Pocket Aces, will have a local adaptation of their 2018 romance drama. This will mark JTBC’s first foray into the Indian market.
JTBC CEO Jung Kyung Moon said the latest collaboration will be an essential step in entering the dynamic Indian market. In addition, he said that JTBC Studio’s box office IP and Pocket Ace’s excellent production capabilities will help bring more projects to fruition in the future.
However, Something In The Rain is not the first Kdrama/K content to get a revamped Indian release. Previously, the 2005 movie, “A Bittersweet Life,” starring Lee Byung Hun, Shin Min Ah, and Kim Yeong Cheol, was embraced by Indian cinema. This resulted in the 2007 film ‘Awarapan’, starring Shriya Saran, Emraan Hashmi, Ashutosh Rana and Mrinalini Sharma.
A romantic relationship between an older woman and a younger man is often frowned upon, especially in Asian culture. The drama had an impact and huge success in South Korea. We can’t wait to see him bring his legacy to India as well.
Further details on the Indian remake of Something In The Rain will be provided by Pocket Aces, and we’ll be sure to keep you posted. In the meantime, watch Son Ye Jin in Thirty nine here.
