Her recent favorite Kdrama is “Crash Landing on You” and if there was something that she dreams of remaking, it’s probably CLOY. “The new Kdrama that really got me hooked was CLOY. It was the first time I actually screamed out of kilig in a very long time from a tv series”, she squealed.

“Wishful thinking. Daydreaming. Maybe if God permits”, she added.

The Korean Original “My Sassy Girl” was directed by Kwak Jae-yong and it starred Jun Ji-hyun and Cha Tae-yun. The same movie was also had a Hollywood remake starring Elisha Cuthbert and Jesse Bradford in 2008.
