Mga ka-Princess Hours, we have great news for you: the K-drama, which premiered in 2006, is getting a remake!
The news was announced by Jaedam Media, the company that owns the rights to the show. According to them, they have signed a remake contract with production company Group8. Group8 produced the original Princess Hours (also known as Goong) and other shows like Boys Over Flowers, Hey Ghost, and Let’s Fight.
Hwang Nam-yong, the CEO of Jaedam Media, said, “It’s important to continue creating new projects, but we also think that it is important from an intellectual property standpoint to actively breathe new life into good projects that already exist. Goong will become an important case in this new IP ‘boom.'”
The show started as a comic series by Park So-hee. It is set in an alternate 21st-century Korea that has kept its monarchy and imperial family. It follows the crown prince marrying a citizen as part of a deal made between their grandparents.
Princess Hours starred Yoon Eun-hye, Joo Ji-hoon, Kim Jeong-hoon, and Song Ji-hyo.
It became popular in and out of South Korea, and even contributed to the hallyu wave.
No details have been released about the cast or when it will air.
