The director and producer of the original version of “Miracle in Cell No. 7” did not hesitate to air his reaction after watching the movie’s Philippine adaptation.
KAMI learned that the much-talked-about remake, which is a part of this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF), had its movie premiere yesterday, December 16.
Present in the much-awaited event were Lee Hwan Kyung, the director of the South Korean version, and Kim Min Ki, the producer.
Through a translator, they frankly expressed their thoughts after watching the full movie.
They even jokingly stated that they want to make a “remake” of the Philippine version because it was really good and dramatic.
The two Korean filmmakers also pointed out that the Philippine version is more sentimental and emotional than what was shown in 2013.
"Dahil sa sobrang natuwa kami sa Philippine version, joke lang, pero sana itong Philippine remake ng Miracle in Cell No. 7, i-remake din natin, huwag lang mataas ang presyo…
"Nakita niya ang ending, yung last part ng movie. Originally, wala yun sa Korean version. Noong napanood niya yung last part, napaisip siya na, yung sa Korean version, sana inilagay rin niya yung ending part…
"Tapos nakita niya na yung audience, mas napapatawa, mas napapaluha kesa sa Korean audience. Nakita niya na mas emotional, mas sentimental yung na-execute ng Philippine movie, so natuwa talaga siya sa ganoong difference," the translator quipped.
