Film 'The Classic' to be made into a TV animation

2006/03/16 Source

'The Classic' (director: Kwak Jae-yong, 2003), a film starred by Son Ye-jin and Cho Seung-woo, will be made into a TV animation.

"Director Kwak Jae-yong's of 'The Classic' and director Yang Jin-cheol of 'Oseam' joined hands to make an animated version of 'Classic'.

The said animated remake will not be for theater screening but will be released as a 26-episode TV series", Dohwaji Entertainment, an animation production company, announced on March 15.

Producing the said remake three years after the film came out has been encouraged by the so-called Korean Syndrome that is currently sweeping across Asia. It is the same reason why 'A Jewel In The Palace', a drama that further stoked the Korean Syndrome frenzy, has recently been remade into a 26-episode animated version ('Janggeum's Dream'). 'Classic' was a huge hit when it was released in all Asian countries, including Japan and Taiwan.

Not only 'The Classic' or 'A Jewel in the Palace' ("Dae Jang Geum"), but also the recent hit film 'The King and the Clown' (director: Lee Joon-ik, 2005), which has attracted 12 million viewers in Korea, are also to be remade into an animated film.

"It is meaningful that the lack of planning in the Korean animation industry is filled up with Choongmu-ro (the film industry), which encourages the creation of an animation that is heartfelt and warm. With 'Classic', there are many sentimental and cultural codes in the film, such as the rural scenery or the innocent times during the characters' school days, the shadow of the Korean War, and other events that all Asians can identify with, and in this regard, we believe that an animation can also evoke the sympathy of all of Asia", Na, Hyun-chae, PD of Dohwaji Entertainment, explained.
