But what if it is a content that has already been aired once? Then producers are able to catch those aspects that were successful and use it on the remake content. If producers of remake content can make good use of those elements, the success of the work is guaranteed to some extent.

In addition, remake content can also attract fans of the original work and attract many consumer's attention even before the drama is aired, using the popularity of the original work. It receives a lot of attention from the casting process without any publicity. Therefore remake content is merit. Nowadays, remakes are often made using comics, novels, TV shows, and films.
