On July 7, producers of ‘Nodame Cantabile’ Korean version named SNSD Yoona as the heroine of the Korean remake of popular Japanese TV series which will be broadcast through KBS2 TV in October.
However, KBS PD Han Sang Woo told Star News, “Yoona is the choice to be heroine of ‘Nodame Cantabile’ but we still need permission from the original PDs. Because of that we cannot finalize her yet.”
He added, “Nodame Cantabile’s author (Tomoko Ninomiya) wants a 100% identical casting to Ueno Juri who played Noda Megumi. If she says no to our casting, we can’t do anything about it.”
However, Tomoko Ninomiya herself replied to someone regarding the issue through her twitter account this afternoon saying that she is not going to be involved in the Korean remake of ‘Nodame Cantabile’.
What is your opinion about Yoona as the heroine Nodame?
