This is not a drill, people! THIS IS NOT A DRILL!
It has been announced that 19 Days will be adapted to the TV screen and this fan cannot be anymore excited! It is said the ChaiJiDan is set to produce the drama. ChaiJiDan’s previous series includes Addicted.
The network drama 19 Days will be adapted from the web comic by Old Xian. 19 Days tells the story of four high school students set in campus life. 19 Days began it’s life as a micro-blog by author Old Xian. Nowadays Old Xian has four million fans and is considered one of this generation’s top cartoonists.
In relation to the adaptation of literary works, CahiJiDan says the comic book is more difficult, stating: “The cartoon image is already sketched out. We want to find accord with the original but also meet the aesthetic standards of the three dimensional actor, which is very difficult. In addition, the content of the comic is more fragmented, so how to build it into a story with drama being the major theme is also a big challenge’.
When asked if some content will be deleted, ChaiJiDan replied: “In my opinion, it is a sunny, warm and positive story. We will not delete content but rather fill the story’
I’m very optimistic in ChaijiDan’s skills in making 19 Days into a successful live-action TV drama. Addicted is a fantastic series and if it’s anything like that, us fans are in for a treat!
