Lovi Poe and Piolo Pascual have started working on the upcoming Philippine adaptation of the hit K-drama Flower of Evil.
On Monday, November 22, the actress shared snippets from their look test for the series.
“And so it begins…. Say hello to Cha Ji-won and Baek Hee-sung,” Lovi captioned the post, in reference to the characters from the original South Korean drama.
Flower of Evil marks the first time for Lovi and Piolo to team up for a project together, and Lovi’s first series as an ABS-CBN talent. During her contract signing in September, the actress shared that working on the suspense drama is “such a dream come true.”
“Isa ito sa mga paborito kong K-drama. Kaya noong sinabi sa akin na ito ‘yung magiging proyekto ko, iba ‘yung naramdaman ko (This is one of my favorite K-dramas. That’s why when they told me it was going to be my project, I was so hyped). I was so excited,” she said then.
Dreamscape Entertainment on Sunday, November 21, also revealed the full cast members for the project during the show’s story conference.
Joining Lovi and Poe are Robert Seña, Epy Quizon, Jett Pangan, Pinky Amador, Kit Thompson, Agot Isidro, Rita Avila, Denise Laurel, Joross Gamboa, and Edu Manzano.
Flower of Evil, which originally stars South Korean actors Lee Jun-ki and Moon Chae-won, follows the story of a husband who hides his vile history under a different identity. However, his detective wife attempts to unearth his past. (READ: What you need to know about the K-Drama Flower of Evil)
