I never thought K-dramas would reach that far back, and if it did it would be in the 2000’s decade such as 2005 when Spring Day came out which was a remake of Heaven’s Coins (Hoshi no Kinka).

The leads age gap is intentional as the original had then veteran Toyokawa Etsushi paired with early days Tokiwa Takako.
