Yulin Kuang to Adapt Maurene Goo’s ‘I Believe In A Thing Called Love’ for Netflix

Yulin Kuang (Love DailyThe Healing Powers of DudeI Ship ItJade Palace) will adapt the feature film I Believe In A Thing Called Love based on Maurene Goo’s YA novel of the same name for Netflix. Goo is the author of several acclaimed and award-winning young adult novels, including Somewhere Only We Know and The Way You Make Me Feel. Byung-hun Lee (The Magnificent Seven, the G.I. Joe series, Red 2Terminator Genisys) is attached to star.

In I Believe In A Thing Called Love, Desi, an overachieving high school senior decides to use the laws of K-drama romances to land herself a boyfriend.

Goo says, “I Believe in a Thing Called Love has found a home with Netflix! I’m so proud of my amazing team—Yulin, A-Major, and BH Entertainment—and it’s a thrill to finally share this exciting news.”

I Believe in a Thing Called Love reminds me of the aspirational stories that I loved as a teenager. Maurene found a way to tap into the fun world of K-dramas through the perspective of a girl who learns that life is something that you can’t control, and Yulin’s voice was perfect for the adaptation. We’re thrilled to partner with Netflix and can’t wait for audiences to fall in love with Desi,” Lee adds.
