I’ve just read that the Turkish movie “7. Koğuştaki Mucize” was becoming a hit right now in other countries!
They did a remake of the Korean movie “Miracle in Cell No 7.” I didn’t know that other countries did remakes of Korean content (except Japan or China or well you know).
Has anyone watched “Miracle in Cell No 7”?
I hadn`t heard of it so far. Is it on Viki?

I saw the Korean movie Miracle in cell no 7 when it came a few years ago. I’m a sucker for emotional content and loved this movie! I haven’t seen the Turkish remake yet. There are plenty other Korean movies that other countries did remakes on. US have done this plenty of times. To name a few remakes you have: Il Mare (the lake house), Old boy and My sassy girl. Korean movies are great!
I remember the time when MTV was broadcasting a lot of Asian horror movies. And indeed some of them had American remakes, like The Ring (リング).

I don’t think it’s on Viki, I haven’t found it.
Oh yeah, horror movies, right!
The Ring is too brrr for me, I won’t sleep after!
There’s a post about remakes of popular dramas here:
You see it happen a lot that some drama gets a remake in an other country.
Like for example Itazura Na Kiss (Playful Kiss) not only does it have multiple drama adaptions in Japan itself it also has a Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese and even a Thai version I found out today (and maybe I even forgot one.
What do you think about remakes? Do you find it cool? Do you find it stupid they can’t think of something new and original? Do you often times find them better then the original or are they m…
I watched The Ring (remake) at the cinema at the time, when I was living abroad, and I had to go home afterwards, late in the evening …
Brr, I would have watched Disney just after!
