Ready for another manga remake?

After the unbelievable popularity of 2008’s “Boys Over Flowers” remake, rumor has it that South Korea will take on another classic Japanese manga with a cult following: “Absolute Boyfriend.“

Here the plot: Riiko, a lonely high school student (again?), ignorantly designs an “absolute boyfriend” on a website and orders him, thinking that everything is a silly game. When her order surprisingly arrives the next morning, she follows the instructions manual and kisses him in order to, well, turn him on. And to avoid paying a fortune for her absolute boyfriend, whom she names “Night,” she agrees to help the company conduct research on women’s attitudes towards men (to perfect future absolute boyfriend models). As the story progresses, Night begins to feel human emotion and care for Riiko. Unfortunately, a love triangle come into play with Riiko’s childhood friend Soshi. On top of all this, Night is a robot and Riiko is still in high school.

True, sounds childish. However, the quirky story may make for some funny comedy. According to the rumor mill, iconic bombshell Jun Ji-hyun is set to make her first drama comeback in 10 years as the stylish 30 year old version of Riiko for the new series. An insider for the production commented, “We understand that for a long while, Jun Ji-hyun has been carefully preparing to take a role in a Korean drama. We are working out the details of her casting, and hope for a positive result.” Nothing’s been set in stone as of yet, but do you want to see a Korean remake of “Absolute Boyfriend”?

Not really. I mean, what will they change? Isn't it just the same thing, but with Korean actors?

It's a mix of both Korean and Taiwanese.
The main actress is played by Goo Hye Sun and the main male lead is played by Wu Zun.
I think it will be in Mandarin though.
