Television channel ENA’s courtroom series “Extraordinary Attorney Woo”
will be adapted into a musical, EMK Musical Company announced Wednesday.
According to the company, three episodes from the 16-part series will be selected and turned into a musical.
“There were many attempts to reproduce hit drama series as musicals. But we always worry whether the long stories of TV dramas could be represented in 2 to 3-hour stage performances,” Eom Hong-hyeon, CEO and chief producer of EMK, said in a press
“Because every episode of ‘Extraordinary Attorney Woo’ has a clear storyline, I believe we can expand the original a little further in a musical,” Eom added.
The musical is scheduled to debut in 2024. [TheKoreaHerald]
