Korean drama Winter Sonata into anime?!?

The exhibitor notes at the Tokyo International Anime Fair (TAF) 2008 website list a press stage event for the "Announcement of the Anime Production for the Winter Sonata (Fuyu no Sonata)" live-action drama series on March 28. The plans for an anime version were first revealed in December when the Korean media company Key East signed a memorandum of understanding with the Japanese entertainment company Total Promotion.

South Korea's KBS broadcasted the original hit drama series in 2002, and the 2004 Japanese broadcast triggered the ongoing "Korean wave" of pop culture in Japan. The drama follows two childhood friends — a boy and a girl — and the tragedy and angst that befalls them and those around them in the years between high school and young adulthood. As a result of the 2004 broadcast, the lead actor Bae Yong-Joon became a superstar among Japanese female viewers. (A third of the Key East company is owned by Bae.) The Japanese publisher Ohzora Publishing Co. eventually imported and translated the drama's manhwa adaptation (pictured at right) under the title Winter Love Song.
