Hit French comedy drama ‘Call My Agent!’ to get Korean remake led by Studio Dragon

Studio Dragon has signed a formal copyright contract to adapt the popular French comedy drama Call My Agent! into a Korean series.

Call My Agent! centers on celebrity management and follows four talent agents who struggle to balance their personal and professional lives, which oftentimes come into conflict due to the nature of their jobs. The drama, which first aired in 2015 and enjoyed nationwide popularity, has four seasons and is confirmed to return for its fifth installment. Reports shared that the drama is also set to get remakes in many other parts of the world, including Canada, Turkey, India, China, and the UK.

Call My Agent! will reportedly make use of the original drama’s strengths and fun points but will feature a story that will fit Korea’s domestic situation and sentiment. Moreover, due to the plot set inside the show business, the remake is expected to feature star-studded cameos that will brighten up the drama.

Alexandre René, a representative of TF1 Studio in France, said, “We are happy to collaborate with Studio Dragon for the remake of Call My Agent!” TF1 Studio and France TV Distribution previously acquired rights for the original drama via a deal with creators Mon Voisin Productions and Mother Productions.

Studio Dragon’s content producer Yoo Sang-won said, “We purchased the original work because the characters and stories are really attractive. The script is currently working smoothly, and the casting is also scheduled to begin soon. This well-made drama will be released soon.”

Luna

It was Princess Lulu who first introduced her to Korean dramas but it was Yoon Ji-hoo from Boys Over Flowers who enticed her to stay in K-dramaland. She writes news and features for Kdramapal, which combines two of her most favorite things in the world—writing and K-dramas (look who's living the dream). The name Luna literally translates to "moon" and nothing special; she just likes writing at night.

    WOW! Another upcoming drama from SD!!

    They’re not stopping at all. We haven’t reached the middle of the year but they already have 7 kdramas (5 completed, 2 on-going).

    Can you make an article too about the production companies who are currently working on these series (on-going & upcoming)? 😀
