It’s not every day that we get a Philippine adaptation of our favorite Korean dramas.
Luckily, the hit 2020 Korean drama “Flower of Evil” had a chance to be adapted into a Philippine teleserye with a Philippine setting.
Starring Piolo Pascual and Lovi Poe, the Philippine adaptation of Flower of Evil (Viu original adaptation) aired from June 25 until October 9, 2022. The series was available on Viu every Thursday and Friday at 8:00 PM. The series also aired on Kapamilya Channel and A2Z every Saturday and Sunday.
Watch the trailer of Flower of Evil PH here:
The happy family life of a police detective changes when she starts to discover the secret identity of her husband. Her team investigates a murder case connected to the man she loves, leading her to an earth-shattering revelation. Synopsis from Viu
Jacob del Rosario, played by Piolo Pascual, is a man who hides under the identity of another man. His wife, Iris del Rosario, played by Lovi Poe, is a police detective. She later took on a case that involved a man named Daniel Villareal, which is her husband’s true identity.
As the story goes on, more secrets and revelations unfold. Everything that happened in Daniel’s life, is connected to everyone who is a part of his life as Jacob.
The original drama starring Lee Joon Gi and Moon Chae Won is really an amazing drama. It was thrilling, and suspenseful, and will make you guess and try to solve the case as well!
The Philippine adaptation of Flower of Evil literally set the bar on remakes and adaptations here in the country. As a fan of the original series, I can say that Flower of Evil PH is close to the original.
I can clearly remember each scene that the original version has and I find it amazing that the Philippine adaptation had its own way of visualizing and interpreting the original. Kudos to the Philippine team for making their adaptation one of a kind!
Each scene was replicated but with a Filipino touch. I really liked that aspect since they kept the original story and didn’t add new parts or stories just to please the Filipino audience. The two series are very alike in so many ways which is a good thing because you’ll see how they will do the Philippine adaptation.
Here you’ll see how similar the two dramas were:
Do you remember that scene wherein Cha Ji Won (Moon Chae Won) had to chase down Baek Hee Sung (Lee Joon Gi) without her knowing that it was actually her husband she was chasing? That scene was very thrilling and suspenseful. I’ve always wondered how the Philippine version will recreate that scene and I must say, I was very impressed.
Additionally, the acting and chemistry of Piolo Pascual and Lovi Poe are ones to comment about. Both actors were perfect for the role and they were able to convey the right emotions of their characters in the teleserye. I don’t see any Filipino actors who could play the roles of Daniel and Iris just like they did. The two lead actors owned the roles!
And just like the original K-drama, the Philippine adaptation is filled with secrets and revelation! Even with knowing how the story goes, I still get surprised by every revelation!
Even the original actor Lee Joon Gi approves of this adaptation!
I highly recommend watching the Philippine adaptation if you are a fan of the original series! It’s definitely worth the watch and you’ll be surprised in every scene in the adaptation!
Kudos to the Philippine team of Flower of Evil: ABS CBN Entertainment, Viu Philippines, and Dreamscape. To all the actors and actresses and staff in the drama, congratulations on this beautiful TV series!
As a K-drama fan, I am hoping for more Philippine adaptations in the future!
