Webtoon Buam-dong Revenge Social Club in talks to get drama remake at tvN
It looks like tvN might be lining up another webtoon adaptation in its drama schedule with Buam-dong Revenge Social Club. The drama’s production is still in its early stages, but the plot which features three women from different walks of life coming together for revenge sounds really promising, so I hope we hear more about its progress soon.
The webtoon tells the story of three women: a fish store ajumma who envisioned a better life for herself, a housewife who grew up an orphan, and a chaebol’s daughter who was raised like a delicate greenhouse flower. They’re an unlikely trio who would never otherwise meet, but they join forces to carry out their individual revenges. Although they start out as co-conspirators, along the way they’ll build a strong friendship.
I just love that there seems to be more and more female-centric dramas around lately, and especially ones that feature strong women with equally strong friendships. Couple that with a revenge story, and I’m sold. Up to direct is PD Kwon Seok-jang, whose credits include Ex-Girlfriend Club, which itself had an unexpected friendship between one man’s many ex-girlfriends. The show itself was kind of forgettable, but I did find the interactions between the ex-girlfriends hilarious, and it was one of the show’s bright spots. I know that this new webtoon adaptation won’t be a comedy, but hopefully we get heartwarming bonding moments in between all of the revenge.
Negotiations are currently underway at tvN regarding Buam-dong Revenge Social Club, so there’s no word yet on when it’ll air.
