The Japanese remake of the hit 2020 series “Itaewon Class” will be available to local viewers exclusively through Korean video streaming platform Tving, the platform said on Tuesday.

“Roppongi Class” will be on TV from Wednesday. Roppongi is an entertainment district in Tokyo. The show has been airing in Japan on TV Asahi since July.

“Roppongi Class,” adapted from the Kakao webtoon of the same name, carries the same narrative as the Korean “Itaewon Class,” which revolves around the two main characters Park Saroyi and Jo Yi-seo and their attempts to open a successful restaurant in the city. Korean actors Park Seo Joon and Kim Da Mi played the lead roles in the original series.

In Class Roppongi, rising Japanese actor Ryoma Takeuchi plays Park Saroyi and Yurina Hirate plays Jo Yi-so.

The original webtoon has over 400 million views, and the TV series is ranked 3rd in the viewership rating of all JTBC dramas. Overseas, the series was particularly popular in Japan, peaking at number one on the Netflix Japan Top 10 chart.

“Roppongi Class” is a collaboration between Korean studio LuluLala and Kakao Entertainment and Japan’s Asahi TV channel.

JTBC Studios, the content management affiliate of cable channel JTBC, changed its company name to Studio LuluLala (SLL) at its annual shareholder meeting on March 31, symbolizing its hopes to offer more diverse content targeted at a global audience.
