Chinese rom-com series "The Heirs from the Stars" is preparing to enter the Korean drama market, Xinhua news agency reported Tuesday.

The Chinese drama, directed by 33-year-old producer Guan Shao-jie, is wrapping up recording the Korean dubbing for the television series.

The 10-episode Chinese drama has been aired on a Chinese Internet broadcaster since Sept. 19.

The move comes after the Chinese drama has faced criticisms over allegedly plagiarizing "My Love from the Star" and "The Heirs," two of the most popular Korean dramas in China.

The Internet Move Group, the producer of "The Heirs from the Stars," aims to seek Korean buyers, Xinhua reported, citing online reviewers' comments such as "Now is time for Korea to take a sip of good Chinese drama."
