Herald Pop - Naver: 'Old Boy', 'My Sassy Girl'... Top 10 remakes that Hollywood ruined

1. [+3,569, -57] The originals are always the best. Even the Korean sequel for 'My Sassy Girl' flopped

2. [+2,475, -80] My Sassy Girl's American version is a disaster. No other actress can play that character better than Jeon Ji Hyun

3. [+1,090, -66] Should've talked about successful remakes too. The American remake of 'Let Me In' is fun

4. [+680, -61] Personally, even the original version of 'Dark Water' is average..

5. [+162, -4] But we ruined 'Nodame' too

6. [+104, -4] As for successful remakes, there's 'Behind the White Tower'

7. [+86, -5] Add 'The Uninvited' to the list too (tn: remake of 'A Tale of Two Sisters')

8. [+34, 0] 'Chloe' was alright though
