Korean production company Group 8 will be producing a new TV series based on popular Japanese comics "Itazurana Kiss."
Group 8 explained in a press release that the local TV version will be helmed by Hwang In-roi, who previously directed "Goong" (MBC, 2006) and "The Return of Iljimae" (MBC, 2009), and adapted for the small screen by noted television writer Go Eun-nim.
Group 8, founded by musician Song Byung-joon, is known for creating television dramas based on comic series such as "Goong" and most notably last year's smash hit "Boys Over Flowers," which turned little-known actor Lee Min-ho into a household name.
The Korean TV adaptation, set to premiere this fall, will soon wrap up casting and go into shoot in early July.
