‘Different Dreams’ to become a film

July 13,2019
MBC drama “Different Dreams” will be remade into a film and released in China, the production company of the drama, Imong Studio Culture Company, revealed on Friday.

“[The company] has finalized an exclusive contact with the Seven Stars Film Studios Limited, an affiliate of the Sun Seven Stars Media Group, an international creative technology investment conglomerate, for the drama to be remade into a film,” said the agency.

Both companies agreed to re-edit and shoot additional scenes if deemed necessary and will work toward getting the permission from the Chinese government for the movie to be released in the country.

The organizers of the studio also said that the CEO of the Chinese company, Woo Jung, is determined to make the film a commercial success. “My grandfather was close with Kim Gu, one of the most respected independence activists, during the period that provisional government was active,” the CEO told organizers. “The drama covers the history of the Japanese colonial rule of Korea, which is something that both Koreas and Chinese audiences can sympathize with. The film can be a stimulus for cultural exchange between the two countries.”

“Different Dreams” revolves around two secret agents working for the provisional government of Korea, resisting Japanese colonialism to fight for the country’s independence. Actors Lee Yo-won and Yoo Ji-tae star in the film.
