TV Asahi has signed a license agreement with CRAV works in Korea for the remake of its drama dele.
The series centers on the “digital data left after one’s death” and unfolds mysterious stories of hidden human relations and emotions within the data. When dele aired last summer in Japan, it followed a computer genius who uses a wheelchair and his sidekick, who are the executors of clients’ requests to delete all of their inconvenient digital data in the event of their deaths. The Korean version of dele is scheduled to be produced and air in 2020.
Kua Jeon, the executive producer of CRAV works, said: “Korea is a very powerful digital country boasting its place at the top of the world in the penetration rate of smartphones among its population and the number of hours spent on the internet. And because of that, we are facing many problems, and the stories of dele present crucial issues arising from a digital society to which audiences are bound to feel strong interest and sympathy.”
