Bae Doona In Talks To Play The Lead In A Remake Of Japanese Drama
Earlier this week, a media outlet reported that actress Bae Doona had received a casting offer for a remake drama.
The show is a remake of the popular Japanese drama from 2013, “The Greatest Divorce” (literal translation). The Japanese drama was penned by Sakamoto Yuji, who also wrote the Japanese drama “Mother” (on which the recent Korean version was based).
This will be Bae Doona’s first TV drama since last June’s “Forest of Secrets” on tvN. In response to the casting reports, a source from her agency SBD Entertainment stated that she is looking over the offer and nothing has been confirmed. A source from “The Greatest Divorce” said cautiously that they are in talks.
“The Greatest Divorce” is about how people in their 30s in the modern age, when divorce is common, navigate their attitudes about marriage and family. It will be directed by Yoo Hyun Gi and produced by Monster Union and The Eye Entertainment.
