The Korean TV drama "Winter Sonata", which led the Hallyu phenomenon throughout Japan, will be adapted into a movie production, along with another "seasonal" serial, "Autumn in my Heart".

Culture Cap Media holds the movie rights to "Winter Sonata", and its CEO, Choi Sun-sik, released a press statement on the 8th announcing the joint investment venture in the production of the film with Kara & Rich Holdings.

Kara & Rich Holdings is an investment company with a majority of Japanese and Singaporean investors. The company has an investment contract with an entertainment firm in Japan that will work alongside Culture Cap Media.

According to Culture Cap Media, the stars of "Winter Sonata", Bae Yong-joon and Choi Ji-woo, will not be participating in the movie adaptation.

"We are hoping to give a refreshing new feel to the movie", the company stated. "After the movie version of 'Winter Sonata', we will work with Kara & Rich Holdings on the production of the adaptation of 'Autumn in my Heart' as well".
