On October 17, a representative of Group 8 revealed that it will be collaborating with China’s Asia Media Holdings to remake the drama “Full House” into a Chinese version through a Korean-Chinese co-production.
The Korean version of “Full House” was a remake of the original manga of the same name, and was broadcast in 2004. It starred singer-actor Rain and actress Song Hye Gyo as the main lead roles, earning much love and popularity with viewers, as proven by its record viewer rating of 40%. Reports of this new Chinese version are gaining attention with local media, as many are already anticipating its release.
It has also been announced that U-KISS member Eli has confirmed his casting as the lead male character, played by Rain in the Korean version. The main female role will be chosen through auditions in China, following a press conference that will be held in Shanghai on October 23.
The Korean-Chinese co-produced “Full House” is expected to officially begin filming starting in December.
