Dreamscape Entertainment head Deo Endrinal announced the project earlier today right after its lead stars, Piolo Pascual and Lovi Poe, officially inked their contracts with ABS-CBN.
Flower of Evil is a suspense melodrama that centers on Joon Gi as Baek Hee-sung, a seemingly perfect family man who’s actually running away from his twisted past. His secret? He might just be involved in a series of murder cases being investigated by his own detective wife Cha Ji-won (Moon Chae Won).
FYI, Flower of Evil earned five nods at the Baeksang Arts Awards last May 2021. Its director, Kim Cheol Kyu, went home with the coveted Best TV Director trophy, while Joon Gi was nominated for Best TV Actor.
Though their roles haven’t been announced yet, it’s safe to assume Piolo and Lovi will be playing the married duo for the show’s Philippine remake.
In signing a contract with ABS-CBN, Lovi effectively ended her 15 year run with GMA. Of course, the actress remained grateful for the network as she expressed her thanks for them during the event. “Hindi po biro ang 15 years. I would like to thank GMA for taking a chance on this unknown dreamer; for believing in me and supporting me all these years,” she said.
Apart from Flower of Evil, Lovi is also set to make her Hollywood debut soon with a biopic titled The Chelsea Cowboy. Starring alongside Alex Pettyfer, she’ll be taking on the role of Dana Gillespie, a British blues singer with connections to high society.
