The popular drama ‘My Love from the Star‘ has been remade in Japan and is about to air.
On January 14th, a trailer for ‘My Love from the Stars‘ was released on Amazon Prime Video Japan‘s YouTube channel.
In the released trailer, Sota Fukushi and Mizuki Yamamoto appeared as Do Min Joon and Cheon Song Yi, played by Kim Soo Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun, respectively.
However, the reaction of domestic netizens who saw the trailer was not very good. This is because the visuals of Kim Soo Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun in the original work and the visuals of the two actors showed a big difference.
Moreover, even in the short trailer, the exaggerated performances of the actors stand out, so there are some who express their anxiety about Japan’s unique directing ability.
‘My Love from the Stars‘, which aired in 2013, was scheduled to be remade by ABC in the United States, but it was canceled once. After twists and turns, the remake was made in Japan, and interest is gathering whether it will be able to meet the expectations of the original fans.
Meanwhile, the remake version of ‘My Love from the Star‘ will be released on Amazon Prime Video on February 23rd.
