US Remake Of “SKY Castle” Is Reportedly In The Works
A remake of JTBC’s “SKY Castle” may be coming to American television!
On September 5 at the Asia Drama Conference, the mega-hit drama’s writer Yoo Hyun Mi reportedly shared that Warner Bros. is moving forward with a U.S. remake of the show. She said, “Excessive private education isn’t just an issue in Korea. While I was writing ‘SKY Castle,’ I thought that the story could be relatable in Asian countries such as Japan, China, Singapore, and India, as well as America and Europe.”
While a previous report by Yonhap News included details such as a working title for the show and names of producers, this article has since been removed.
