On the 24th, magazine ViVi published the survey results of 400 Hallyu fans on “the best Korean drama that needs a Japanese reboot.”
Park Seo Jun and Park Min Young‘s tvN drama What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim topped the list. The survey respondents commented, “The story of two from the totally different financial background is similar to that of Boys Over Flowers.” Some have said, “It is an office comedy series that will definitely do great in Japan.” And others shared, “I wonder who would be able to play the main character like Park Seo Jun.”
The second place also went to Park Seo Joon’s JTBC drama Itaewon Class. Participants who choose Itaewon Class stated, “I don’t think it would be awkward if the story takes place in Japan,” plus “The overall plot and development is well-received in Japan.”
tvN’s drama Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (also known as Goblin) took third place. The participants have left comments like, “It has a story that will go across in all ages,” and “I’d want to see Goblin’s bickering romance in a Japanese version.”
The fourth-place went to Crash Landing on You. Coming in at No.5 is Coffee Prince. And at No.6 is Neverthless. Up next at No.7 is My Love from the Star and No.8 is Something in the Rain. Following in at No.9 is Kill Me Heal Me. Lastly, Start Up, Pinnochio, and My Lovely Sam Soon all took the tenth place together.
