    As that long ass title says, which are some non-Korean (American/Japanese/Chinese/other) TV dramas or movies you wish would get a Korean version?

    Many Korean dramas were remakes, for example Playful Kiss, in their own versions, aired in both Japan and Taiwan before coming over to South Korea. Witch's Romance is also a remake, with Taiwanese original. God of Study, one of my all time faves, is Korean version of old Japanese drama. But not only Asian dramas get a Korean spin on them, there are recent examples of American TV shows aka Good Wife and Entourage being introduced to Korean audience.

    For me personally, I recently got into Ode of Joy, a Chinese drama about 5 independent women who all live on the same floor and befriend each other. It's kind of similar to Age of Youth and I would love to see more of those kinds of dramas being made.

    Funny enough I was watching a popular Norwegian webdrama named Skam not too long ago, so maybe that. I wonder how a Korean drama that focuses pretty realistic on teenage life would have worked. For some reason the gay romance scenes looks like what Kpop fans who like gay fanservice would like to see.

    "You're Here, You're Here, You're Really Here" was supposed to be like Friends, but apparently it sucked.

    I would personally LOVE to see a "Parks & Rec" remake or just that style/feel. I know "Producer" was similar and I loved it, but it didn't have the same feel.

    I don't really like korean remakes much when it comes to romcom or historical e-e . They tend to be really bad and aren't as good as the original like Bu Bu Jing Xi ( Scarlet Heart Ryeo is the Kversion), In Time with You, Fated to Love you, My Queen (Witch Romance is the kversion), etc. Too many disappointments already = =. I pray that they won't touch Nirvana in Fire like plz god nooo....

    'The Reason I Can't Find My Love'

    and

    '1 Litre of Tears'

    Both J-Dramas and are absolutely amazing. If executed properly would make great k-dramas.

    Doc Martin would be fun! It's about a very uptight surgeon from London with NO social skills who has to settle for a job as a general practitioner in a quaint fishing village due to developing a blood phobia. Though it can be moving, overall it's a pretty lighthearted series and could be adapted to pretty much any culture.
