Look! Bela Padilla Starts Filming "Ultimate Oppa," Her New Movie With Korean Actor Kim Gun-Woo

Annyeonghaseyo from Korea to Manila!


Which Filipino Celebs Are Perfect For The Lead Roles Of "Crash Landing On You?"

Not a lot about the movie has been revealed, but using our grade school lessons on context clues, "oppa" in Korea could mean a love interest, or a crush of some sort. So if we're right, the movie could very well be a romance flick/lighthearted rom-com that'll have Bela's and Gun-woo's characters go through some pretty interesting twists and turns before they're rewarded with their happily ever after. 

According to this ABS-CBN News articleUltimate Oppa "follows the love story of a Filipino fan of Hallyu and a Korean talent manager." Also, the film will be helmed by director Jade Castro, and Bela's and Gun-woo's character's names are Jay and Yana.

Filming has already begun for the actress and she's also gotten to know South Korea more intimately in the process as a bonus. 

A travel junkie, Bela is no stranger to seeing unexplored parts of the world, but her Instagram posts reveal a different side of her globetrotting self; she doesn't hold back when she talks about experiencing unfamiliar things in the familiar country and how she's enjoyed every moment, so far. 

Below are some behind-the-scenes photos from their shoots:
