In a Facebook post on November 18, the Filipino filmmaker mentioned themes of famous series from South Korea versus themes of Pinoy series with cliché plots.
“START UP is about setting up businesses. IT'S OK NOT TO BE OK is about mental health. LIFE is about health care and business. ITAEWON CLASS is about dignity in ambition. SKY CASTLE is about parents and education. RECORD OF YOUTH is about choices in life and the sacrifices you make.
THIS is KDRAMA TODAY.
Eh, tayo nagkakapalitan pa rin ang mga babies sa ospital, may nawawalang diary, may kabit na kampon ni Satanas , kulot pa rin ang buhok ng kontrabidang babae habang banat ang inaaping martir na bidang babae, laging late pa rin ang pulis sa krimen, palpak ang lahat ng kidnappings, alagad ng kadiliman ang lahat ng mga mayaman, hindi nilikha ni Lord ang mabait na biyenang babae at stepsister at laganap pa rin ang hindi magamot-gamot na amnesia na mas masahol pa sa COVID19.
DIYOS KO, 'DAY!”

Last year, he instantly drew flak in the online world because of a statement that he threw about the judges in “Idol Philippines.” Although Direk Joey did not mention specific persons to be replaced, he wrote three names of local artists as his bet to become judges in “Idol PH.” He mentioned the names of Jed Madela, Morisette Amon, and Gary Valenciano as replacements of the three judges in the show.
The director also spoke up about the accident that Eddie Garcia figured in. He said what happened to Manoy should be a wakeup call to those who are responsible in running a shoot. The director said he is sad and angry considering that Eddie is a living treasure who takes pride in taking care of his health.
