Kim Chiu, Paulo Avelino To Headline “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” PH Adaptation

The upcoming remake of the popular K-Drama is scheduled for release in 2024!

Kim Chiu and Paulo Avelino are set to reunite for the upcoming Philippine adaptation of the popular K-drama “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim.”

ABS-CBN and Viu Philippines made the casting announcement earlier today, November 21. The post showcased clips of the actors in their respective roles.

Kim, taking on the role of the titular Secretary Kim, was seen preparing for work in a baby blue top and pencil skirt. Paulo, on the other hand, embraced his inner Vice Chairman persona in a dark blue blazer.

The project is produced by Dreamscape Entertainment, who also produced Kim and Paulo’s recently concluded successful series on Prime Video, “Linlang.”

“What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” tells the story of an arrogant and narcissistic vice chairman of a major company whose seemingly perfect life takes an unexpected turn when his trusted long-term secretary decides to resign.

In his attempt to persuade her to stay, he finds himself developing romantic feelings for her. The original series starred South Korean actors Park Seo-jun and Park Min-young.
