It's ECQ 2.0 indeed because tvN's Crash Landing On You will soon be singing and dancing its way to the stage.
That's right, we'll be seeing more of Yoon Se-ri, Captain Ri Jung-hyuk and his Company Five—but with different cast members—as Pop Music has announced it won the rights to adapt the drama for a musical.
CLOY follows the story of a chaebol South Korean woman Yoon Se-Ri (Son Ye-jin), who accidentally crash-lands in North Korea after a paragliding accident. She later on meets an elite North Korean officer, Captain Ri Jung-hyuk (Hyun Bin), who secretly helps her return to South Korea, and later on falls for each other.
Ever since it aired on Netflix early last year, the show has become one of the highest rated K-dramas in television history, with over 15 awards and 19 nominations.
Sources from the musical's production companies, Pop Music and T2N Media, have already completed signing global publication rights with Studio Dragon, and are now planning on carrying out performances starting in Seoul mid-2022, as reported by Soompi.
"We concluded the deal for publication rights with Studio Dragon, and we plan to start choosing the main staff and begin casting. We will do our best to create a good project We’ve already received inquiries from many actors and foreign production companies," says Kim Jin-seok, CEO of the production company, Pop Music.
