Korean stars Ji Soo from Strong Woman Do Bong-Soon, Jung Chae-Yeon from Drinking Solo, and Jinyoung from Love in the Moonlight will be starring in a new Netflix original series called My First First Love, and we can't wait to finally binge-watch this new K-drama! It's set to premiere next year, but the lead stars have already managed to charm Filipino viewers right off the bat—thanks to these hilarious mock movie posters shot by BJ Pascual himself! Too adorable for words!
The trio recreated popular Filipino movie posters and copied everything to a tee. See them for yourself below:

One More Chance
So cute, right? We also got a chance to talk to BJ about his experience working with the K-drama stars.
What was the experience like?
"I flew to SG at 6 a.m. the same day as the shoot. So I was running on coffee but the Netflix team made it so easy and fun! I actually wasn't that familiar with the K-Drama stars but I became an instant fan upon meeting them! They all looked so flawless IRL! I am now looking forward to their shows coming up on Netflix."
How were you tapped?
"Netflix reached out with an idea for a cool concept that they wanted to work with local talent for. It isn't every day that you get a call from Netflix, which is why I was really excited to do it."
How did the actors do? Were they aware of Pinoy films?
"They were not aware of it but to give them an idea, we had briefed them on the plot-lines of each movie and they instantly got it. Everything went smoothly during the shoot and I was really impressed and at the same time surprised, at how determined they were to get it right. After the shoot, they sent a message to the team saying that they had so much fun doing it!"
Who among the three is most familiar with local films or culture?
"Jisoo! Jisoo said "Mahal kita" out of nowhere and I got super kilig! Then he said he was kinikilig and so I asked as to why he knows so much Pinoy terms; he said that he has Filipino friends."
