ABS-CBN acquires rights to produce local adaptation of South Korea’s ‘Flower of Evil’

ABS-CBN Entertainment will produce the local adaptation of South Korean thriller drama “Flower of Evil” after acquiring the rights from content production companies CJ ENM Co., Ltd. and Studio Dragon Corporation to adapt the hit series for Filipino viewers.

The Philippine version will feature multi-awarded actors Piolo Pascual and Lovi Poe in the lead roles as husband and wife, who were originally played by Lee Joon Gi and Moon Chae Won.

An irresistible mix of drama, romance, thrill, and action, “Flower of Evil” follows a man who changes his identity in order to hide his dark past, successfully maintaining his disguise by building a happy family with his police detective wife. But when she starts investigating an unsolved serial murder case that might be tied to him, she must deal with the reality that her perfect husband might not be who she thinks he is.

“Flower of Evil” enjoyed high ratings in South Korea when it premiered on tvN, CJ ENM’s leading total entertainment channel, in 2020. The series continued to gain popularity in other countries for its nail-biting plot twists and remarkable performances after becoming available internationally through various streaming platforms.

The local adaptation of “Flower of Evil” will be Lovi’s first Kapamilya teleserye after signing with ABS-CBN this week, and Piolo’s first after 2018’s “Since I Found You.”

Watch out for Piolo and Lovi in the Philippine adaptation of “Flower of Evil,” which will be produced by Dreamscape Entertainment, soon on ABS-CBN platforms.
