I react to remake or new adaptation news based on the circumstances of each, time between and whether I think the previous one really feels outdated and the source material rich enough to merit a fresh take so new generations can experience the enjoyment. That’s why I’m totally against the news that Goong (Palace or Princess Hours) is getting a new K-drama adaptation 15 years after the original basically created a new Hallyu bubble. The drama that launched Yoon Eun Hye and Joo Ji Hoon to superstardom also created the idol/teen K-drama genre when before it was all adult melos and romances. It’s adapted from a manhwa that’s much too long and messy, basically the construct is great about a modern Korea with a royal family and the ordinary girl who marries the crown prince but the execution was too protracted. I’m against the need to remake it now, maybe in another 10 years because honestly the original is still really watchable. It’s only a little bit dated in the hairstyles and fashion but really captured that young romance with the fantasy royal family twist. Plus this is going to open up the new leads to tons of comparisons especially if they don’t stack up to the original.
