Here’s a quick lookback to how and when it all started, Ms. Shine Ricafort, the Producer, shared us some of this movie’s history; it was not easy at all.

They start conceptualizing early this year and submitted an application to Korea and got accepted. For the actors, all of them auditioned and weren’t just handpicked by the production. They fit their characters so well that they even acted so natural and real on –screen making all of us think it wasn’t acting at all.

“In Seoul, we were forced to practice our flexibility and patience, because we worked under the heat of the sun without the air-conditioned tents that we normally use in the Philippines. We had to understand each other through gestures and facial expressions more than using words. Every break time, we eat at restaurants but also along the streets too.” Ms. Shine Ricafort said.

Korean production works extremely different from Philippine productions, as well as other countries. But despite all these hardships they’ve gone through, it gave them a unique experience and learning while having fun. In spite of language barriers, principles, and cultural differences, they considered each and every one as a family and worked as one.
