Filipino Remake of Korean Comedy Keys to the Heart Strikes a Heartfelt Chord

Filipino and Korean content are among the most-watched titles on Netflix in the Philippines. When these two worlds collide and a great story comes our way, we become completely engrossed. Keys to the Heart, a 2018 Korean film starring Lee Byung Hun and Park Jung Min, has now been adapted for a Filipino audience. Troubled and alone, a down-on-his-luck boxer moves in with his long-lost mother and autistic pianist brother. But he must fit in with a family he hasn't known for years.

The talented Cebuano director Kerwin Go (Mina-Anud) is passionate about this retelling and its important message. “It’s a celebration of family, unconventional families, blended families. It could be a family that you adopt and friends who become family and neighbors who actually become just as important,” he said at the See What’s Next: Philippines 2023 local titles launch.
