See them side by side with their Korean counterparts

There's no doubting Filipinos' love for K-dramas and Korean films, and it's exciting when they're brought overseas for Philippine adaptations starring the biggest names in local showbiz.


Filipino actresses who starred in adaptations of K-dramas and films add a welcome layer of familiarity and audiences wait at the edge of their seats to see how their favorite storylines are reinterpreted with local touches. Family-centric dramas and bittersweet romances take the lead in the most popular adaptations brought to Pinoy viewers, but thrillers, rom-coms, and fantasy have all earned their rightful places, too. 


We've seen Philippine adaptations of K-dramas since 2008 through networks like ABS-CBN, where remakes of several series were aired. This year, four famous and award-winning titles both on the small and big screens are making headlines for their upcoming local versions.


Toni Gonzaga is taking on the role originally played by Jun Ji-hyun in iconic rom-com film My Sassy GirlKylie Verzosa is set to ooze with sex appeal in the film The Housemaid as the Pinay counterpart of Jeon Do-yeon. Bea Alonzo is set to match Son Ye-jin's emotional big screen performance in melodrama A Moment to RememberThere's also Cristine Reyes in Encountera K-drama where she taps into Song Hye-kyo's original character of the scarred wife looking for a second shot at love.
