Absolute Boyfriend Manga Has Live-Action Korean Show Planned
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The Korean pop culture website Soompi noted on Tuesday that a Korean production team is planning a new live-action adaptation of Yuu Watase's Absolute Boyfriend manga. Titled Absolute Him, the program is slated to air in Korea in the first half of 2012.
The Korean actors Kim Ha Neul and TOP may star in the upcoming television drama, but their roles have not been confirmed. The show's producers are currently planning and organizing roles for the new comedy manga adaptation.
Absolute Boyfriend already received a Japanese live-action television drama series in 2008 and a special in 2009. There has also been a Taiwanese live-action drama adaptation of Watase's romance manga.
In North America, Viz Media serialized the manga in Shojo Beat magazine from its premiere issue in 2005 until the manga's ending in 2007. Viz Media also announced the manga series for its digital manga library iPad application in April.
