The Korean version will be jointly executive produced by Sebastian Lee Dong Hun and David Kim of EnterMedia Contents. The pair was responsible for the U.S. adaptations of Korean hit scripted series, “My Love from A Star” and “Good Doctor.”

Suits” tells the story of a man who works as a legal associate for a hotshot lawyer despite never actually attending law school. It is now in its fifth season.

“This deal further cements our interest in broadening our activity in the vibrant Asian market. Having recently acquired Korean non-scripted formats for international distribution (‘Hidden Singer’ and ‘Where Are We Going, Dad?’), we are excited to announce ‘Suits Korea’ as our first scripted format deal in Asia,” said Yvonne Pilkington, SVP formats & production, NBCUniversal International, in a statement.

The deal was signed by Pilkington and Linfield Ng, NBCUniversal’s Asia director format sales liaison.
