The Hong sisters are among the most prolific screenwriters in Korea, with almost all their dramas rising to commercial success as well as critical acclaim. Their upwards streak began in 2005 with their debut drama Sassy Girl Chun-hyang, and has continued with shows such as You’re Beautiful (2009), My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho (2010), The Greatest Love (2011), The Master’s Sun (2012), A Korean Odyssey (2017-2018), and most recently, this year’s highest-rated drama Hotel del Luna. The writers are famous for incorporating mythology and fantasy elements into their romance dramas and writing strong female heroines.

Can This Person Be Translated? will be helmed by PD Park Joon-hwa, who directed seasons 1 and 2 of the variety show Let’s Eat as well as hit dramas like What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim and Because This Life Is My First.
