I have very mixed emotions about this project. Yes, it’s tvN so they can be edgier than the milquetoast broadcast networks, but the story behind One Million Stars Falling from the Sky is so dark, so sexual that I can’t imagine it coming to fruition in Korea. It is still amazing to me that it aired in Japan, with Kimura Takuya as the “hero” of the piece — it would never be made today as a television drama. However it was a very interesting story, so I can understand the attraction.
But… according to Soompi they are in talks with Jung So-min to take the female lead role. Even more strange is that they’ve chosen as the producing director someone who did Oh My Ghostess. I enjoyed that drama, but are they going to make this a supernatural comedy?
