ABC to Adapt Korean Drama ‘Nine: Nine Time Travels’

Written by Derek Simonds, the untitled drama, described as part thriller, part epic love story, centers on a man with the ability to travel 20 years back in time who, in trying to alter a murder which destroyed his family, sets off a chain of events that impact the woman he loves and threatens his own life. He embarks on an odyssey through time to make things right.
Nine times Nine is my favorite show that I've watched in the last year, but I'm not sure how it adapts to US television because like most Asian dramas it is a self-contained story that doesn't fit the seasonal US TV type thing. The show ran for 20 episodes and the story was finished.

Kim Yun Jin (Sun from Lost) is involved in this as a producer so I'm hopeful that we might actually see more Asian characters in the series. Of course history and my brain tells me this is probably going to wind up like a lot of other ABC series and probably put on Thursday night at 8PM and canceled.
