China to Remake ′The Heirs′ and Start Filming in January
The Chinese version of The Heirs is soon to come out.
According to Chinese press, a drama production company in China has finalized its decision to remake the SBS’s hit drama The Heirs and is in the process of putting together a drama production team.
The casting has not been finalized yet, and fans have been gathering their attention on who will take the lead roles in the Chinese version of The Heirs.
It has been reported that filming will start in January.
There have been several cases where Korean dramas were re-made in China, but it is an unusual occasion for a drama to be re-made within a month from the time it ended, surprising many in both Korea and China.
The decision to remake The Heirs is reported to be largely due to the drama’s popularity on streaming websites.
Apart from the drama itself, the cast has also been receiving much attention in the country, earning popularity and fame.
