“Winter Sonata” Writers and Director Reunite to Make Sequel
Three masterminds behind the hugely popular drama “Winter Sonata” are reuniting to create a sequel.
“Winter Sonata” was first aired on KBS in 2002, and is one of Korea’s most successful dramas overseas, particularly in Japan. It is often credited with launching the Korean Wave in many parts of Asia.
Pan Entertainment, the production company that created “Winter Sonata,” officially announced on April 14 that a sequel is currently in the works. The “Winter Sonata” writing team of Yoon Eun Kyung and Kim Eun Hee are working again with director Yoon Seok Ho to recreate the magic of the first series.
The president of Pan Entertainment says, “We’ve been formulating a sequel for a long time. We had a tentative agreement that we’d make a sequel after ten years had passed since the first show was aired, and it seems like it’s time now.”
He says they plan to include as many of the members of the original show’s production team in the making of the sequel as possible.
They are currently still in the planning stages and are preparing the new show’s storyline, which is expected to be revealed next month.
No actors have been cast yet.
