Kim Chiu and Paulo Avelino: The sweetest things they have done for love




March 16 ------ Kapamilya stars Kim Chiu and Paulo Avelino brought out the "kilig feels" and good vibes during the grand media conference of the series "What's Wrong with Secretary Kim," which streams exclusively on Viu beginning March 18.  

  

Kim and Paulo, collectively known as KimPau, shared that viewers can relate to the series since it will highlight unique Filipino elements, such as Pinoy humor and lifestyle while staying true to the original story. "As proud Pinoy, maraming nilagay ang mga writers namin and everyone involved sa paggawa ng 'Secretary Kim' the Philippine version. Maraming Filipino touch such as family oriented or 'yung mga more comedy side. Actually kapag pinanood mo siya side by side, medyo parehas siya [sa Korean counterpart]. Pero 'yung story namin is more Filipino and mas nakaka-relate 'yung karamihan," said Kim during the mediacon of the series, held at the Gateway Mall II recently.  

  

Paulo added: "The show is adopted into our culture. So, if you watch the original, some parts I watched, the Korean culture is strong. Pero, our Filipino culture was adapted in this adaptation: how we are, how we talk, and how we are in the Philippines." “There’s always pressure whenever you do an adaptation. But what we did was to stick to the script and be true to our culture to show how well we can do it as Filipinos,” Paulo also said. Kim added: "Nakaka-kaba pa rin. But I'm thankful for this opportunity. Habang ginagawa namin ang adaptation na ito, it doesn't feel like work. When we saw some of the finished parts, parang nakaka-proud. Ang saya dahil nagawa ng mga Pinoy ang ganitong klaseng adaptation. We're happy for the outcome of the series. I'm proud of this adaptation." 

  

KimPau will showcase their chemistry in their first romcom series, displaying their funny and feel-good personalities. “This one’s gonna be really different. Kung naghahanap kayo ng magpapasaya, magpapatawa, at magpapakilig sa inyo, ito ‘yung palabas na dapat ninyong subaybayan. Coming from very heavy and serious characters, I'm happy to be given a chance to play a role like this. Nakaka-excite,” said Paulo. Kim also shared, "It combines kilig, romance, family, friendship, ambition, and dreams. After you watch the show, feel-good lang. Something to smile about. We promised them na hindi sila mabibigo." 

  

All for love 

Kim and Paulo were asked about some of the sweetest things they've done for love in real life. Paulo said he accepted the project because he enjoys working with Kim. "I'd have second thoughts if it had been offered to me without Kim," said Paulo, who admitted he accepted the project because of Kim and the late Deo Endrinal of Dreamscape Entertainment. Kim said she's a giving person in real life. "I'm a giving person. I will give as long as I can. Wala namang mawawala sa akin kung magbibigay ako eh. Marami kang magagawa kapag nagmahal ka. At saka normal na sa'yo 'yun kapag may love. So hanggang doon na lang."
