The story of Jane the Virgin got the most publicity after the US show a few years ago but it was first adapted in Venezuela and based on a source novel. It’s always got a latino flavor and cultural background but now South Korea is giving it a go with cable network Channel A readying a drama adaptation for later this year. The K-drama Jane the Virgin has it’s first cast member and it’s not the titular Jane but her love interest, with Jaejoong on board as the male lead. He’s playing a hotel heir and current manager, handsome with a bit of bad boy vibe. He was married but got divorced soon thereafter and also someone who beat stomach cancer. The drama will of course be a comedy and will air in December 2019.
