Pepe Herrera To Play the Lead Role in the PH Adaptation of ‘My Sassy Girl’

He will be starring alongside Toni Gonzaga!

TINCAN Films revealed today that Pepe Herrera will be playing the lead role in the upcoming PH adaptation of the hit Korean film My Sassy Girl. This comes a few days after the production company announced that Toni Gonzaga will be playing the unnamed lead girl in the film.

With this announcement comes more first-look photos of Herrera and Gonzaga in the film. Check it out below:

Pepe Herrera will be playing the Filipino counterpart of Cha Tae Hyun’s Gyun Woo, a college student whose life basically revolves around hanging out with friends, picking up girls, and avoiding his nagging mother. Things take a turn for him after meeting a drunk girl (played by Jun Ji Hyun) while riding the subway. He ends up encountering the girl again in numerous situations, eventually finding himself in a relationship that he didn’t ask for.

My Sassy Girl, which comes from writer and director Kwak Jae Yeon, became a hit inside and outside South Korea when it premiered back in 2001. The PH remake comes just in time for the original film’s 20th anniversary.

TINCAN Films is yet to announce when the film will premiere in Philippine theaters. For updates, you can keep checking back on TinCan Films’ official websiteFacebook, and Twitter pages.
