A Korean remake of the hit Taiwanese drama series “Someday or One Day” (2019) will be premiered by Netflix, the streaming service announced Thursday.

Netflix has announced that they cast Jeon Yeo-been, Ahn Hyo-seop, and Kang Hoon for the lead roles.

Netflix Korea’s remake is titled “A Time Called You.” The series revolves around the time-traveling fantasy romance between three protagonists – Joon-hee, Yeon-joon, and In-gyu. In 2023, Joon-hee continues to miss her boyfriend Yeon-joon who died a year ago. She somehow travels back in time to 1998 and wakes up in the body of a different person, 18-year-old Min-ju, and meets Si-heon, who looks suspiciously like her dead boyfriend. In-gyu, Si-heon’s best friend, had a crush on Min-ju for a long time.

Jeon and Ahn will each play the dual roles of Joon-hee and Min-ju, Yeon-joon and Si-heon. Kang Hoon will portray In-gyu.

Director Kim Jin-won of the drama series “The Innocent Man” (2012) on KBS and “Rain or Shine” (2017) and “My Country: The New Age” (2019) on JTBC will helm the series. Npio Entertainment, Lian Contents and Studio Flow will produce the series.
