LOL, here comes the hypocrisy train: Where were all these Knetizens when the South Korean remake of Entourage came out? While I agree with the general sentiment that many entertainment industries try to recycle too many things, South Korea is not innocent in this practice. They've also made versions of SNL, The Good Wife, and several others. So they can take several seats on this issue.

I refuse to believe that Hollyweird has no more original ideas. Why are they remaking everything?
