From Nuel C. Naval, director of the adaptation of comedy-drama film Miracle in Cell No. 7, comes another Philippine remake of a Korean heart-wrenching romantic drama film, More Than Blue coming on Vivamax tomorrow, Nov. 19.
Starring Yassi Pressman and JC Santos, More Than Blue is a local adaption of a 2009 South Korean drama of the same title.
The story follows the story of K (Santos) and Cream (Pressman), both orphans, who shared a home without any romantic ties. K was abandoned by his mother when his father died of cancer, while Cream lost her entire family in a car accident. But when K discovers that he is dying due to terminal cancer, he secretly keeps it from Cream and pushes her to marry someone kind and healthy.
Eventually, Cream meets John Louis (Diego Loyzaga), an affluent dentist, with whom she announces that she has fallen in love. It breaks K’s heart, but at the same time, it makes him feel relieved knowing that Cream will not be left alone.
True love goes with sacrifice for the sake of the person that is loved. But in the case of K and Cream, will it suffice to make the person feel all the more loved?
With the Pinoy remake of the romance-drama sensation, Santos and Pressman are now ready to make the audience feel the love and cry at the same time on their first onscreen pairing.
Pressman has expressed her excitement to do the film. And although she received both Korean and Taiwanese versions for reference, she feels reluctant to watch them. Instead, she is motivated to create her version of Cream naturally.
Also starring in the movie is Ariella Arida playing a significant role in the heartbreaking relationship of two soulmates, K and Cream.
Stream the Philippine adaptation of “More Than Blue” this November on Vivamax, available online at web.vivamax.net.
