GMA Network proves anew that it remains at the forefront, not only in delivering innovative and trendsetting programs, but also in producing world-class adaptations of foreign series after its primetime soap ‘Start-Up PH’ was praised by the producer of the original hit Korean drama.
Yu Sang-won said, “We are pleasantly surprised at how well the Philippine version of Start-Up was produced. It was impressive how GMA Entertainment Group put in efforts to satisfy both the original fans and the local audience.”
The South Korean producer also commended the K-drama vibe of ‘Start-Up PH’ through its creative shots and iconic scenes, “The overall look, feel and the cinematography of the local version were similar to that of the original version, so that the Filipino fans will feel familiar.”
He recognized the exceptional portrayals of Asia’s Multimedia Star Alden Richards as Tristan and multi-awarded actress and box-office icon Bea Alonzo as Dani.
Alden, in turn, expressed his gratitude to the Start-Up producer for appreciating the local remake. “Our sincerest gratitude to Mr. Yu Sang-won for the nice feedback for our show. It was really an honor for us to do the Filipino adaptation, Start-Up PH. We hope that we can also inspire a lot of local audiences here in the Philippines as much as the Korean version did all over the world.”
Positive feedback from the viewers and netizens also keep pouring in for the remake, especially now that things are getting better and sweeter between Dani and her fake pen pal, Dave, portrayed by Jeric Gonzales./PR
