I used to love this show when it was airing. I guess if this goes well then maybe other Korean dramas will be animated as well, not sure if that'd be a good thing though.

Looks promising. So, when was it scheduled to air? Spring, summer, fall, or maybe winter (hope not ) since it is Winter Sonata after all

THE most explosive news of the series?

Bae Yong Joon (YON SAMA) will voice himself in the anime..

This just gets crazier and crazier.

Call me crazy, but if the show doesn't get Honey & Clover anime treatment, it'd be disappointing. It deserves it.

Oh my...I never got down to watching Winter Sonata when I was busy with my co-cirricular activities. Looks like a good time to do it now.

Has any more info (or rumors, whatever comes first) been passed about which studio would be doing it?

After reading the wiki, I can safely pass on this one.

Another needlessly complicated love story.

It took me a look at the wiki page and a quick listen to the OST to realize I've watched this already. I feel so slow...

Interesting.

BTW, what's a "Honey & Clover anime treatment"?

Flawless animation, best songs the elevens can find, and a plot that is faithful to the original.

Yeah,i always wonder about that.I dont see anything great at all. Perhaps because of the soundtrack?

Honestly,this show is SO slow moving and draggy to the point i wish all characters are dead.The plot are not captivating at all.Maybe because i never like Choi Ji Woo.

It's all about the Yon-sama factor.

Something along the lines of pure, clean romanticism.

Winter Sonata came before Yon-sama.

Winter Sonata was also among the first Korean dramas to be imported to some countries.

The show does drag from the middle onward, which is a problem that afflicts many Korean dramas.

IMO, the plot is standard for a romantic drama, but probably no worse than the scores of soap operas and shounen romances out there (look at the praise that Bokura ga Ita, Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, and True Tears got). If the adaptation is strong, genre fans should be happy enough.

The slowness of the soap opera was its draw since so many soap operas gets the plot going too hastily at times. It actually got pretty decent reviews as a drama and I think its popularity speaks for itself.

I'm not a fan personally, but there is a long history of great Korean dramas out there. Soap operas are a much bigger business in South Korea than even United States.

well making kdramas into anime isnt that bad because there are tons of mangas adaption in dramas, but consider this special case i find that the "4 seasons" kdrama serie isnt a very good choose, i mean the story is very very very sad...

I don't think the target audience of the original drama watches anime, but hopefully the anime will gain its own fans.

I think a sad ending/story would be a nice change of pace really. And romantic dramas just tends to do well in anime nowadays.

WOW.

Back a few years ago, I have watched and love this series.
With Bae Yong Joon as the voice actor.. looks like my wallet will go empty again.

Why of all the series that one? Or would it be too cliche to go for a show that has some pace in it and that's actually fun?

That aside it is good enough(if done right) to rank up with the better romance animes. I just was hoping for a better one.

I don't get one thing though. Are they planning to let a korean guy voice a japanese student? Or is the actual anime taking place in korea and spoken in korean?

If the korean guy is going to speak japanese it would make no sense to me? Smells like easy money making to me.

Problem was that those drama's where so dramatic it felt so forced and fake I stopped caring for the characters. While I guess housewifes could get in it just fine, but I doubt the anime demografic will.
