Plans announced for Friend, the musical

Before the drama Friend, Our Legend even gets off the ground, announcements have been made for a musical version in the works. There’s even a new word to describe the trend of movie-turned-musicals (e.g., 200 Pound Beauty, On Air): the somewhat ungainly term “moviecal.”

A representative from Friend‘s production company said, “We haven’t made concrete plans yet, but it’s true we are in talks to produce the musical.” Although technically this adaptation would be based on the original film, considering that the movie was released in 2001 and the drama version is set to come out this month, they must be riding on the anticipated popularity of the Hyun Bin-led miniseries. (What happens if it flops?)

Meanwhile 20-episode television drama has been produced in its entirety prior to its first broadcast, which will be this weekend, June 27.

^ haha I like 'filmsical' WAY more!

I dunno, it'll have enough juice for a good story, but with its violent and darker themes...does it go well with singing?!

BUT, even if the drama flops and they still go ahead with it AND binnie, KMJ and SDY will be in it, I'll definitely grab tix and go see!
