Thanks for Your help! I have read Jong-hwan Kim's dissertation and
several other texts about theatrical performances of Shakespeare in
Korea and I was surprised about the various forms of adaption (e.g.
there were Shakespearean musicals and dance-pieces as well as more
conventional performances). I could not, however, get any information
about adaptions in the cinema or on TV. So notes like this one:
> You may also look at the (very popular) 2007 MBC
> series "The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince." Story
> line reminds of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night."
are exactly what I am looking for...
In addition highschool-productions of "Romeo & Juliet" are a common
thing to see in many American teenage-movies or soap-operas, so I
thought that maybe something similar can be found in Korean dramas...
Greetings, Jan Creutzenberg
