HEIRS TO KAHANI HAMARI DIL DOSTI DEEWANEPAN KI
Another Lee Min Ho K-Drama inspired show, the essential idea and core of the story is the same as Heirs revolves around the four major characters Shivin, Gauri, Ahaan and Kia.

SOMETHING IN THE RAIN TO LITTLE THINGS

THE OUTLAWS TO RADHE
Inspired from the Korean film The Outlaws released in 2017, Radhe did not perform well at the box office. The Outlaws was an R-rated crime action-thriller. It was a super duper hit, becoming one of the highest-grossing Korean films. On the contrary, Radhe is a tired, incoherent and pretty faithful Salman Khan starrer remake which even the fandom of Salman Khan could not save from being average.
LOVER’S CONCERTO TO BARFI
Inspired from the Korean film Lover’s Concerto released in 2002, Barfi became one of the most appreciated, highly anticipated, super-hit Bollywood films. Although it was a copy of the South Korean movie, this Hindi remake won the hearts of audiences and critics alike with the splendid performances of the stars.
THE TERROR LIVE TO DHAMAKA
Inspired from the Korean movie The Terror Live released in 2013, Dhamaka received an average response at the box office and from viewers and critics alike. The Hindi remake did justice to the original Korean film and the acting of Kartik Aaryan as a journalist was much appreciated.
