VIU’s ‘What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim’ is a local adaptation we can all relate to – Here's how

MANILA, Philippines — There’s no denying the anticipation and excitement everyone felt when Paulo Avelino and Kim Chiu were revealed as the stars of the VIU Original Adaptation “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” (WWWSK) in November 2023.

Now that our own version of the hit K-Drama finally premiered last March 18 on VIU, the hype is totally real. As Filipinos can finally stream it for free, they’re in for one unforgettable and relatable show.

This is what the whole cast, creatives and producers promised at the WWWSK media con held at Gateway Mall in Quezon City.

“It was adapted into our culture. . . How we are, how we talk, how things happen here in the Philippines,” shared Paulo, who plays Brandon Manansala “BMC” Castillo, or simply the Boss of Secretary Kim.

Asked what they think made them click as a pair, Kim didn’t have a specific answer. But what she’s certain of is that they know each other better since their first project together.

“Sa tagal namin dito sa industriya, ngayon lang kami nagkasama. Mas kilala na namin yong isa’t isa and nakaka-amaze naman din, may sumusuporta sa aming dalawa,” she said.

“I like working with people who works fast and knows what they’re doing. Si Kim ganon, mabilis siya kumilos, alam na nya yong script [kaya] walang nagiging problema,” Paulo responded.

To this, Kim agreed and said, they both have the same passion for work.

In WWWSK, fans and future fans alike would enjoy KimPau even further as they portray lighter and lovable characters.
