While the basics of the story are the same - a successful young Spanish police officer, Jose, falls in love with a beautiful gypsy girl, Carmen, only to find their love threatened by a jealous suitor - this version is set in a modern-day circus and features plenty of thrilling stunts and impressive visuals.

The Korean version stars Cha Ji-hyun, Ryu Jung-han and Shin Sung-rok.
