Written by JP Lopez and directed by Niq Ablao, the much anticipated will have Korean actor, Kim Won-Shik, billed to be the second male lead.

In terms of acting in TV drama, he already has a handful of experience under his belt. He’s notable for his roles in the hit K-Drama series True Beauty (2020) and the popular Netflix fantasy-romance Alchemy Of Souls (Season 1, 2022).

According to the international celebrity, also known by his English name Sam, being cast in this mini-series also paved the way for him for yet another break in his acting career. Won-Shik is now the latest addition to the growing Universal Records Philippines’ managed artists, made possible by Managing Director Kathleen Dy-Go.

Won-Shik can understand and even speak the Filipino language, since he was able to study in the country for six-and-a-half years. He became easily invested in his role in Pag-ibig Na Kaya after reading the script and quickly felt that its overall treatment is truly inspired by K-Dramas.

“It’s a good experience for me. It’s my first time working with Filipino actors. When I first read the script, I felt like it was like a Korean drama because you know, there are so many similarities. I even asked the writer if he is inspired by some K-Dramas while making this. It was good,” said the Korean actor.

“During our filming, they’re so kind to me, especially our director. I watched the music video, ‘Paubaya’ (Moira Dela Torre). Yeah, the color she uses and the storylines, it was really good! I really believe in Direk Niq that’s why I’m excited to join this series,” he ended.
