Do you think an American version of KBS drama 'Good Doctor' would be successful?


KBS America recently announced, "ABC has decided to create a pilot broadcast of a remake of 'Good Doctor', and it is the first time that a Korean drama has been remade into an American program." 


The American pilot version of 'Good Doctor' will be written by the creator of 'House', David Shore, and produced by Sony Pictures. KBS America also added, "As opposed to the script that pitched in for a CBS pilot program, this script will mostly use the original script, signifying that the emotions of Korean dramas do speak to a broader audience, thus opening the way for more Korean dramas in the future."


'Good Doctor', starring Joo Won and Moon Chae Won, told the romance story of a doctor who suffers from savant syndrome, and his sunbae doctor who helps him through his difficulties.

    "and it is the first time that a Korean drama has been remade into an American program." Did I read that right? I believe there are talks in the past about the other Kdrama remakes but so far I've seen nothing.

    How can it be 'opening the way' for other kdramas if (as always) they're going to make a remake? What, before and after every episode they will put an announcement 'original story comes from Korea. Kudos for them. Please feel free to watch it online. Love, CBS'

    That means the characters will get to sleep with each other and there will be a HOT kiss scene at every 2 minutes like every american series I've watched.

    There's been a lot of talk about remaking Kdramas in the US, and none of them have panned out- except for that god-awful BoF remake. I'm not holding my breath to be completely honest. Although that being said, Good Doctor already has a setup that very much matches a typical American show. Americans like their savants.

    well, i hope its like good doctor but not needing subtitles......though I don't think any American actor can beat Joo won's looks and skills.......

    Does America really need another medical drama that's all about the doctors' love lives?

    reading over this I remembered quite awhile ago about another K-drama being remade. it was called nine: time travels I believe. I'm guessing it didn't go through well. well, considering medical shows do well in America this one might do well.
