More Than Blue Pinoy Adaptation Stars JC Santos and Yassi Pressman

From Nuel C. Naval, director of the adaptation of comedy-drama film ”Miracle in Cell No. 7”, and written by Mel Mendoza-Del Rosario comes another Philippine remake of a Korean heart-wrenching romantic drama film, “More Than Blue” coming on Vivamax this November 19, 2021, starring versatile actress Yassi Pressman and award-winning actor JC Santos.

“More Than Blue” is a story of K (JC Santos) and Cream (Yassi), both orphans, who shared home without any romantic ties. K was abandoned by his mother when his father died of cancer, while Cream lost her entire family in a car accident. But when K discovers that he is dying due to terminal cancer, he secretly keeps it from Cream and pushes her to marry someone kind and healthy.

Eventually, Cream meets John Louis (Diego Loyzaga), an affluent dentist, with whom she announces that she has fallen in love. It breaks K’s heart, but at the same time, it makes him feel relieved knowing that Cream will not be left alone. 

True love goes with sacrifice for the sake of the person that is loved. But in the case of K and Cream, will it suffice to make the person feel all the more loved?

With the Pinoy remake of the romance-drama sensation, JC Santos, playing the role of K, and Yassi Pressman as Cream, are now ready to make the audience feel the love and cry at the same time on their first onscreen pairing. 

Yassi has expressed her excitement to do the film. And although she received both Korean and Taiwanese versions for reference, she feels reluctant to watch them. Instead, she is motivated to create her version of Cream naturally. 

Also starring Diego Loyzaga (Encounter, Philippine TV Series) and Miss Universe Philippines 2013, Ariella Arida playing significant roles in the heartbreaking relationship of two soulmates, K and Cream.

More Than Blue, a South Korean drama classic released in 2009, was adapted in Taiwan in 2018. It was highly received, becoming Taiwanese domestic highest-grossing film that year, with over $300 Million gross. The remake also accepted a warm response during the 23rd Busan International Film Festival. It became a worldwide phenomenon with blockbuster screenings in East Asian countries including China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Singapore, recorded as the highest-grossing Taiwanese film in those countries.
