KOREAN VERSION OF ITAZURA NA KISS (IT STARTED WITH A KISS)
Posted 8/16/09
I HAVE READ AN ARTICLE SAYING THAT KOREAN WILL HAVE IT'S OWN REMAKE OF THE POPULAR JAPANESE MANGA ITAZURA NA KISS....I HAVE WATCHED THE TAIWAN VERSION BUT NOT THE JAPANESE VERSION.NONETHELESS I THINK IT WOULD BE GREAT IF THERE IS A KOREAN VERSION EVEN THOUGH REMAKES ARE KINDA OF TIRING...WHO KNOWS IT COULD BE GOOD SINCE THE REMAKE OF BOYS BEFORE FLOWERS LIVED UP TO MY EXPECTATION.

WELL THIS WAS THE ARTICLE I FOUND ABOUT IT ON ASIANFANATICS....

Group Eight, the producers who adapted Hana Yori Dango into Boys Before Flowers, is adapting another popular Japanese manga for Korean television: Itazura na Kiss, or Playful Kiss, which was turned into an anime series as well as the Taiwanese drama It Started With a Kiss. The Taiwan Drama starred Ariel Lin and Joe Cheng.

According to Group Eight president Song Byung-joon, the adaptation of Itazua na Kiss is next on their slate after Tamna, and they are currently in the planning stages. The licensing has been finalized and they are currently in the process of finding a scriptwriter. They are aiming to broadcast the series (I’ll use the Korean title, 장난스런 키스 or Playful Kiss) next summer.

Song did add that because the original manga never had an official ending (the writer passed away before finishing the series), the Korean version of Playful Kiss may choose to make its own, “entirely different, Korean-style ending.”
