‘Batman’ producer to remake Korean TV drama ‘Resurrection’

Producer Michael Uslan’s U2K Entertainment will remake five Korean TV dramas in the US, including 2005 hit show “Resurrection”.

Public broadcaster, Korean Broadcasting System has signed on a deal with U2K Entertainment to remake the dramas.

The two companies will additionally co-operate to make Korean versions of American TV dramas and co-produce TV adaptations of Korean web cartoons, which KBS will televise.

“Resurrection” is the first KBS TV drama to receive remake treatment. Starring Uhm Tae-woong and Han Ji-min in the lead, the show is about a man who pretends to be his twin brother to reveal the conspiracy surrounding his father’s death.

‘Resurrection’ wasn’t a successful series in terms of ratings. It competed with hit ‘My Name is Kim Sam-soon’ in the same timeslot.

However, it is very dramatic and has a strong plot, which is why Uslan chose it,” said Jung Ji-young, KBS Content Business Office manager.
