In not-sure-if-this-is-necessary news, BBC‘s ‘Luther‘ is getting a Korean remake courtesy of MBC.
A source from MBC confirmed on February 5, “We are going to remake the British drama, BBC’s ‘Luther.’ We are in the middle of reviewing the production schedule.” “Luther” is a crime drama about the psychological games between a detective with a strong sense of justice but tormented by the crimes he solves, and a genius woman who is insensitive to her own death. “Luther” is currently broadcast through BBC, and is receiving great popularity.
As a big fan of the original show, it’s hard to see a remake living up to it. Especially true since while the source material was compelling, what made the show a standout was the performances of Idris Elba and Ruth Wilson more than anything.
