Tomorrow With You PD to return with tvN remake of Hundred Million Stars From the Sky
Ooh, some progress on the tvN remake of Hundred Million Stars From the Sky! When this was last announced several weeks ago, I was eager to hear more developments, and I’m happy to report that the PD behind High School King of Savvy, Oh My Ghostess, and the more recent Tomorrow With You will be helming the new show.
PD Yoo Je-won’s list of credits isn’t long — he only has one other credit aside from those mentioned above called Heaven’s Tears on MBN — but he certainly made an impact with High School King and Oh My Ghostess. The tone of his dramas have generally been quite natural and breezy, even if his subject matter isn’t necessarily so, and I honestly don’t know how well he’ll fare with the heavy material Hundred Million Stars seems to be. I feel his signature style is more of a hands-off approach, letting the actors go off ad-libbing to great comedic effect, but I don’t think that’ll work so well with a story in the thriller genre. There were some thriller elements in Oh My Ghostess, though, and I remember being pretty creeped out when the ghost-possessed police officer showed his evil side, so I’m hoping he’ll handle his first venture into the mystery-thriller genre well.
Also, I’m desperate for a skilled writer I can trust to make this show work, because while I loved High School King and Oh My Ghostess, I felt the writing in those two shows wasn’t quite up to par with the directing and acting. I think the same problem applied to Tomorrow With You, although I dropped that show mid-way so I’m inferring that from the general commentary I’ve read. I’ve seen the comments on the previous article announcing the remake of Hundred Million Stars From the Sky and the original show seems to be widely loved, so I hope for tvN’s sake they don’t mess this up.
Casting for Hundred Million Stars From the Sky will be underway soon, and while tvN has said it doesn’t have a spot for the show on its schedule yet, I think we can expect to see the remake later this year, or early next year.
