The Hallyu wave is dominating the world and we can clearly see it: From sold-out K-pop concerts, Korean food trends, K-beauty products flying off shelves, and K-dramas topping Netflix charts, it's safe to say that the Korean culture phenomenon is here for a long time.

With the rise of Hallyu, South Korean entertainment companies are partnering with international production houses to bring more content abroad specifically to the US. This includes adaptations of hit series (the first one was The Good Doctor) that we *might* be able to watch anytime soon.

Here are six K-dramas that are reportedly getting a Hollywood remake:

1. Crash Landing On You

The OG cast: Hyun Bin, Son Ye Jin, Kim Jung Hyun, Seo Ji Hye

What we know so far: Following the popularity of Crash Landing On You which reached an all-time high, reports stated that an American adaptation is already in its final stages of planning and development with Netflix US. However, K-drama fans are not happy with this announcement and have been asking: "Where exactly will the crash landing happen?".
