MBC's baseball drama "Strike Love" is set to premiere in Japan in March, according to the show's producer Green City Pictures Inc. on Thursday.
The sports drama -- which originally aired in Korea in May 2009 -- will be broadcast on Fuji TV-One starting March 18 and on Fuji TV-Two a week later, Green City announced in a press release.
"It is our differentiated strategy to air the show on two channels at almost the same time," an official at Green City was quoted as saying. "We plan to sequentially release the series through the Internet, media broadcasts as well as DVDs."
Organizers have also scheduled a press conference and promotional event for the TV series in Tokyo and Osaka in March.
As all of the scenes in the original "Strike" were entirely shot on location, producers have added a local flavor to the Japanese version by filming at famous landmarks such as Lake Haruna in Takasaki.
