'That Winter, The Wind Blows' Remake
« on: November 21, 2014, 01:31:08 PM »
There are rumors that this will be one of the kdramas to be remade by ABS-CBN in the future.

After the success of Pure Love, I think GMO unit will be the best option to produce this remake. Although Star Creatives is good, their remake of Only You wasn't really good/ stayed true to the original despite high ratings.

Regarding the actors, It would be nice if they were relatively fresh faces/ ones that haven't had their big breaks in Primetime tv.

Who would you cast for the remake?

Actually, the remakes of Star Creatives aren't that great. Only You na yung best sa lagay na yun. Lovers in Paris and Maria la del Barrio were both meh at best.

Kahit nayayari ang Dreamscape dito at sa PEx, fairly decent mga remakes nila ng foreign shows. Nasaan Ka Elisa was their best remake (and until Pure Love came, I think this was the best local remake), while maganda naman daw ang pagkakahawak sa Green Rose. I enjoyed My Girl.

RSB naman, may kulang sa Maria Mercedes though di naman siya distasteful. Two Wives could be their best remake and mukhang maganda ang prognosis ko sa Pasion de Amor based sa mga nakikita kong photos.

Pero I hope GMO unit gets this one if matuloy, kumbaga reward for making Pure Love one of the most memorable remakes ever.

^ I didn't know Star Creatives remade Lovers in Paris and My Girl. Kung ganon ede hindi talaga sila magaling. LIP was an embarrasment  :P Though I enjoyed My Girl rin, they deviated from the original way too much.

Maganda ang remake ng Green Rose, surprised that Dreamscape was the one in charge of it.

Pero kung i-balance natin, GMO na lang talaga ang best option! ^-^

My picks:

(I chose them based on their age, acting and kung gaano sila ka-"fresh")

Yonna: Jodi Sta. Maria (big break nya, suppose this was for PT)
Xander: Zanjoe Marudo (honestly una ko syang naisip dahil sa height nya, lol. Pero after looking at his profile, rare pa syang naging leading man, na typecast sya recently sa father roles in teleseryes, tapos comedy in films. Magandang "launching" vehicle ito to put him in the same ranks as Jericho, Coco, Piolo)
Gino: Albie Casino (to revive his career, honestly hindi ako sure sa character na ito, pero sya unang naisip ko)
Cindy: Sue Ramirez (I liked her tomboy acting in Annaliza kahit hindi ko pinanood yun, yung original actress that played this character is known for her strong "Satoori" accent, so as a twist sa remake maybe we can make her speak a different dialect?)

Eto naman ang mga naiisip kong pwede:

Paulo-Bea
Jericho-Kristine
John Lloyd-Angelica
Arjo-Yam
JC-Angel
??? - Jodi

IDK pero di ko talaga ma-imagine si Zanjoe as Xander.

#RealTalk, Zanjoe is a good choice for the role of Oh Soo (Xander). Nu'ng pinapapanood ko kasi, I was thinking of Jodi as Yonna talaga then Coco Martin as Xander, hindi naman basehan ang height eh. But then, Kogi suggested Zanjoe Marudo. Have you watched MLT? He's great in it. Nakipagtalbugan siya with Iza and Jodi.

Atsaka yung pag-drama naman ni In-Sung dito ay hindi puro iyak. Atleast 3-5 breakdown scenes and I think Zanjoe can pull it off. Wala akong kaba kung si Jodi ang magiging Oh Young (Yonna).

Well, opinion ko lang naman yun but who knows? Baka manggulat siya dito if ever sa kanya mapunta ang role. BTW, confirmed na bang ire-remake to?

@Soda  ;D Sa KPEx thread ko nabasa na posibleng i-remake for next year (alongside Missing You).

My suggestions, based sa trailer:

Xander - Zanjoe or Paulo
Yonna - Jodi or Yam (launch them as leading ladies for Primetime Bida)

And GMO unit please and Direk Roni please (if hindi siya pwede si Direk Paco na lang tutal he was really good when he took over the 2nd unit director role). Yung feel ng trailer, kaya nilang i-recapture.

Kailangan kasi natin i-consider dito yung age. Remember Xander pretends to be Yonna's older brother, making him younger kinda loses its appeal imo. Kasi pag older brother, it would reflect with Yonna's desire for someone to take care of her/ family figure that she never had. So as much as I like Paulo-Bea or maybe Paulo-Angel, parang hindi bagay. Maganda rin talaga kasi pag fresh combination imo.

Although mas matanda si Jodi kay Zanjoe by a month, at least hindi obvious na mas matanda si Jodi. Basta si Jodi feeling ko ang perfect fit for Yonna. Zanjoe as Xander is just one of possible options.

 Sana talaga kung i-remake man ito, wag nila ibigay sa yonger cast, kasi maganda talaga itong story for mature target audience katulad ng TLW na nasa 30s ang lead stars. We lack in that area kasi.

May point ka naman dun. Actually, first choice ko talaga si Jodi (Hindi naman in order yung mga suggestions na binigay ko kanina). Di ko nga lang talaga alam kung kanino siya ipa-pares.

Aside from age and the height, dapat may chemistry. If you would put Zanjoe and Jodi together, they kinda have the JulQuen feels. Parang magkapatid kung pinagdikit. Same with Coco-Jodi. Or maybe not... Dependes on your opinions. What can you say?

Sa totoo lang, mas maganda ang chemistry ng dalawang taong may pagka-kamukha at pagka-kutis. (e.g. KathNiel, JulQuen, JerNella, etc.)

^Hindi ko gusto si Coco for the role frankly dahil sawa na ako sa face nya and I don't know if its because he plays the same generic characters or his acting style has become redundant and lost its effect imo (he was better in his rookie days in TD and MLKI) Pati we all know na stuck sya sa Dreamscape and he usually has some sort of "creative" input so baka kung anong mangyari sa remake. That's no-no.

Tbh agree ako sayo sa point mo na maganda ang chemistry pagmakakutis but then again if you think aboyt Zanjoe's height and put him beside Jodi don't they give you the same feels as Jo In-sung od Song Hye-kyo or the likes of Jericho-Kristine? Diba kahit EchoTin eh di magkakutis ang ganda parin ng chemistry nila so hindi masyadong malaking factor.

Kung erzo's suggestion man parang ok din si Paulo at Yam, kaya nga lang mas prefer ko talaga kung nasa 30s ang lead to capture the same target audience age bracket as TLW kasi ang unti ng shows natin lately na ang lead talaga eh nasa 30s, kung nass 30s naman na ta-typecast sa mother/father roles.
