The K-drama is a sweet love story featuring Yoon Jin-Ah (Son Ye-Jin), who is in her mid-thirties and her friend’s younger brother, Seo Joon-Hee (Jung Hae), who is in his twenties.

The series revolves around their budding relationship and how they fall in love after having known each other since childhood. The series also shows the many hardships they face— family objections and workplace issues as they try to keep their bond strong. ‘Noona’ refers to a woman called by a man younger to her.

The JTBC Studio and Pocket Aces collaboration

Korean entertainment news portal Soompi quotes Jung Kyung-Moon, the CEO of JTBC Studio, as, “I am happy to present the drama Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food as a remake to Indian viewers. This collaboration will serve as an important opportunity for JTBC Studio to take its first step in the dynamic Indian market. It is expected that JTBC Studio’s IP and Pocket Aces’s outstanding production capabilities will meet and create even better projects.”

Indian remakes of Korean content

India is one of the largest markets to consume Korean content be it K-pop or K-drama. Korean film The Man From Nowhere inspired the 2016 Indian film titled Rocky Handsome, starring John Abraham. Salman Khan’s Bharat (2019) is inspired from Ode To My Father.
