US Remake Of “SKY Castle” Is Reportedly In The Works

On September 5 at the Asia Drama Conference, the mega-hit drama’s writer Yoo Hyun Mi reportedly shared that Warner Bros. is moving forward with a U.S. remake of the show. She said, “Excessive private education isn’t just an issue in Korea. While I was writing ‘SKY Castle,’ I thought that the story could be relatable in Asian countries such as Japan, China, Singapore, and India, as well as America and Europe.”

While a previous report by Yonhap News included details such as the working title "Tribeca" for the show and names of producers, this article has since been removed.

“SKY Castle” is a 2018-2019 JTBC drama that became a sensation, breaking ratings records and becoming a hot topic within Korea throughout its run. It is a black comedy with thriller elements about parents in rich families going to extreme lengths to get their children into South Korea’s most prestigious universities.
