Hit K-drama 'Princess Hours' gets a remake 15 years later

'Princess Hours' or 'Goong' was so popular in 2006, it helped spark the Korean Wave.

A remake of the hit 2006 hit K-drama Princess Hours, which also goes by Goong, has been ordered.

According to South Korean entertainment portal Soompi, Jae Dam Media, which owns the rights to Princess Hours, has signed a contract with Group 8, the same production house responsible for the 2006 series.

“It’s important to continue creating new projects, but we also think that it is important from an intellectual property standpoint to actively breathe new life into good projects that already exist. Goong will become an important case in this new IP ‘boom, '” said Hwang Nam-yong, Jae Dam Media chief executive officer.

Princess Hours, based on the South Korean comic series by Park So-hee, reimagines South Korea as a constitutional monarchy.

The palace drama, set in the 21st century, begins with the crown prince tying the knot with a strong-willed commoner he has no feelings for, as part of an agreement made between their grandparents. But love gradually blossoms between the two.

The 2006 TV adaptation stars Yoon Eun-hye, Joo Ji-hoon, Kim Jeong-hoon and Song Ji-hyo.

The series was wildly popular both in and out of South Korea, contributing to the Korean Wave (Hallyu).
