Bungee Jumping Of Their Own is based on the 2001 film of the same name starring Lee Byung-hun and Lee Eun-ju. The story follows a high school teacher, In-woo, who begins falling for one of his male students, Hyun-bin, after he notices similarities between the student and his deceased girlfriend, Tae-hee.
A TV adaption of Bungee Jumping Of Their Own starring NCT’s Jaehyun began work last year. However, production on the series was soon halted and ultimately cancelled over the film’s original writer’s “religious beliefs”.
Industry insiders claimed that the original screenwriter of the film had opposed the remake after they had become a “devout Christian”, per Star News.
