Reaksyon Ni Jake Ejercito Sa Pagpili Kay Paulo Avelino Bilang Leading Man Ni Kim Chiu Sa What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim
After confirming that Kim Chiu and Paulo Avelino will be paired up for the Philippine adaptation of the hit South Korean drama series What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim, many have wondered where Jake Ejercito is.
It can be remembered that there was a rumor circulating on social media and a few entertainment news sites that Kim Chiu and Jake Ejercito would star in the local adaptation.
Photos from a meeting between Viu and ABS-CBN where Jake Ejercito’s name was included in the main cast also circulated before.
Despite the sudden cast change, many are still thrilled about the reunion of Paulo Avelino and Kim Chiu in one project. It cannot be denied that their previous partnership in the Prime series Linlang was a success and they received high praise for their acting and chemistry.
The viewers themselves requested ABS-CBN for the reunion of Kim Chiu and Paulo Avelino, which the network quickly granted.
Meanwhile, Paulo Avelino expressed his gratitude to those who continue to support and believe in his abilities as an artist.
On the other hand, due to the circulating photo where Jake Ejercito is included in the cast of the Philippine adaptation, many speculated that his role may be that of the sibling of Paulo Avelino’s character.
In the Korean version of What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim, the character portrayed by Paulo Avelino has a brother who becomes a rival to Kim Chiu’s character.
However, this is just a speculation as ABS-CBN has not yet released the official cast of the Philippine adaptation of What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim.
“ABS-CBN Entertainment and Viu are thrilled to announce their new partnership for the Philippine adaptation of the popular South Korean drama series ‘What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim’ originally produced by Studio Dragon Corporation and distributed by CJ ENM Co., Ltd.
“The exciting collaboration will bring together two renowned stars of ABS-CBN, Kim Chiu and Paulo Avelino, who will play the lead roles as Secretary Kim and Mr. Vice-Chairman, as mentioned.”
Translated to Filipino: Matapos na kumpirmahin na sina Kim Chiu at Paulo Avelino ang magtatambal para sa Philippine adaptation ng hit South Korean drama series na What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim, marami ang napatanong kung nasaan si Jake Ejercito.
Matatandaan na naunang kumalat sa social media at ilang mga entertainment news sites ang balitang sina Kim Chiu at Jake Ejercito ang bibida sa nasabing local adaptation.
Nauna na ring kumalat noon ang mga larawan na kuha mula sa meeting ng Viu at ABS-CBN kung saan nakasama ang pangalan ni Jake Ejercito sa mga pangunahing cast.
Sa kabila ng tila biglaang pagpapalit ng cast, marami naman ang natuwa sa muling pagtatambal nina Paulo Avelino at Kim Chiu sa iisang project. Hindi rin naman maipagkakaila na matagumpay ang naunang tambalan nina Kim Chiu at Paulo Avelino sa Prime series na Linlang kung saan labis na hinangaan ang kanilang galing at chemistry.
Ang mga manonood na mismo ang nagrequest sa ABS-CBN na sana ay muling magtambal sina Kim Chiu at Paulo Avelino na kaagad namang tinupad ng network.
Samantala, malaki naman ang pasasalamat ni Paulo Avelino sa mga sumuporta sa kanya at naniniwala sa kanyang kakayanan bilang artista.
Samantala, dahil sa kumakalat na larawan kung saan kasama si Jake Ejercito sa mga cast ng nasabing Philippine adaptation, marami ang naghinala na baka ang papel na gagampanan ngayon ni Jake ay bilang kapatid ng karakter ni Paulo Avelino.
Sa Korean version ng What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim, may kapatid na lalaki ang papel na gagampanan ni Paulo Avelino na magiging karibal niya kay Kim Chiu.
Gayunpaman, pawang hinala lamang ito dahil hindi pa naman nilalabas ng ABS-CBN ang official casts ng Philippine adaptation ng What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim.
“Natutuwa ang ABS-CBN Entertainment at Viu na ipahayag ang kanilang bagong partnership para sa Philippine adaptation ng sikat na South Korean darama series na ‘What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim’ na orihinal na ginawa ng Studio Dragon Corporation at ipinamahagi ng CJ ENM Co., Ltd.
“Ang kapana-panabik na pagtutulungan ay magsasama-sama ng dalawang kilalang bituin ng ABS-CBN, sina Kim Chiu at Paulo Avelino na gagampanan ang mga pangunahing tungkulin bilang Secretary Kim at Mr. Vice-Chairman, ayon sa pagkakabanggit.”
