Vice-chairman and his antics are back! What are the lengths he’d be willing to go to to stop his long-time secretary from resigning?

Yes, chingu, after the success of the suspense-thriller series Linlang, Kim Chiu and Paulo Avelino pair once again, this time to bring the ultimate kilig in the remake of the hit romantic-comedy series What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim. In this joint project of ABS-CBN Entertainment and streaming platform Viu, the Kapamilya stars are taking on the lead roles of Secretary Kim and Mr. Vice-Chairman, which were originally played by Park Min-young and Park Seo-joon.

Based on the webtoon series aired in 2018, CJ ENM’s What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim topped Korean ratings and gained widespread popularity around the world, including here in the Philippines. This project marks the third adaptation of a top-rating international format between Viu and ABS-CBN, following The Broken Marriage Vow and Flower of Evil.

What We Know So Far About the PH Adaptation of ‘What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim’

Slated to be released in 2024, the Philippine adaptation of What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim will follow the story of the handsome, narcissistic vice-chairman of a major corporation whose seemingly perfect world was shaken when his highly competent secretary of almost a decade announces her resignation. To keep things as is, he tries everything to keep her by his side—without knowing that in the process, they begin to develop romantic feelings for each other.

ABS-CBN’s COO of Broadcast, Cory Vidanes, extended her heartfelt thanks to Viu for once again placing their trust in the network. “We are thrilled to bring the Philippine adaptation of a popular K-drama series to our viewers, as we also showcase Filipino talent across the world.”

The Chief of Content Acquisition and Development of Viu, Marianne Lee, also shared: “Offering content that resonates with our market is key to what we do here at Viu. We are excited to work, once again, with our trusted partner, ABS-CBN Entertainment, with Dreamscape at the helm of production in delivering this title to our Viu-ers in the Philippines and across the region. As our third collaboration together, we look forward to its success, not just in the Philippines but across all our markets.”

CJ ENM’s Director of International Content Sales, Sebastian Kim, also added: “We are delighted to announce the continuation of our enduring partnership with ABS-CBN and Viu through the ‘What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim’ remake. Anticipating the unveiling of this culturally adapted rendition, we eagerly await the opportunity to captivate Filipino viewers by bridging the narrative and characters to resonate with local audiences, all the while preserving the inherent charm and essence of the original script.”

While the details of this remake are yet to be revealed, including the cast and official release date, this exciting collaboration brings much excitement among Filipino fans and viewers.
