Ahn Hyo-seop in A Time Called You
On 31st March 2022, it was confirmed that Ahn Hyo-seop will be starring in the Korean remake of the Taiwansese drama titled Someday Or One Day. This romance drama was a global hit in 2019 when it was released in Taiwan. Understandably, expectations for the Korean remake, titled A Time Called You, are high.

The Korean remake is based on the Taiwanese drama titled Someday Or One Day. This drama was well-received not only domestically but also internationally, and it garnered more than a billion cumulative views.
In the original drama, the story follows a woman called Huang Yu-hsuan, who’s in her late 20s. She experiences a tragic loss when her boyfriend dies in an airplane accident.

Yearning to see her boyfriend again, she listens to a song on the way back home one day. Strangely enough, the song takes her back to 1998, and she begins to live in the body of Chen Yun-ru, a high school student.
After Yun-ru gets hit by a car, Yu-hsuan wakes up in Yun-ru’s body at a hospital. This is when she encounters a boy, who looks just like Yu-hsuan’s late boyfriend.
The Korean remake follows a similar premise, and it alternates between 1998 and 2023.

Ahn Hyo-seop confirmed to star in A Time Called You
The drama is slated to air in 2023, but the exact airing date has yet to be announced by Netflix.
Since the Taiwanese drama was well-loved by viewers around the world, we believe the Korean remake will be just as good, if not even better. Looks like 2023 is going to be another eventful year for Netflix Korea!
