Drishyam, directed by Jeethu Joseph and starring Mohanlal, has garnered immense popularity. Since its release in 2013, the movie has been remade in various languages, including Kannada, Telugu, Tamil, Sinhala, and even Chinese. The sequel, Drishyam 2, released in 2021, also received acclaim and was remade in Hindi featuring Ajay Devgn.
Exciting news has now emerged that the film is set to be remade in Korean. The official announcement was made during the Cannes Film Festival, generating significant buzz. Song Kang Ho, renowned for his stellar performance in the film Parasite, is expected to play the lead role. Both Drishyam and Drishyam 2 will be remade for the Korean audience. Although the original version hailed from Malayalam, it was announced as a remake of a Hindi movie.
This marks a significant milestone as it will be the first Indian film to be remade in Korean. The project will be a collaboration between Panorama Studios, the production house behind the Hindi remakes of the Drishyam franchise, and Anthology Studios from South Korea. Anthology Studios, owned by Song Kang Ho and director Kim Joo Woon, brings their expertise and creative vision to this Indo-Korean joint venture.
