The hit K-Drama Princess Hours which is based on the Korean comic Goong is set to have a second adaptation. 

According to a report by Naver as translated by Soompi, the company Jae Dam Media, which is in charge of managing the Korean comic, inked a contract with production company Group 8 to make the new adaptation. 

"It’s important to continue creating new projects, but we also think that it is important from an intellectual property standpoint to actively breathe new life into good projects that already exist,” Hwang Nam Yong, the CEO of Jae Dam Media, remarked in the report.
