Cristine Reyes, Diego Loyzaga to star in PH remake of Song Hye-kyo, Park Bo-gum’s ‘Encounter’

Feel the love and fall in love with the Philippine adaptation of one of the highest-rated K-dramas of all time. Produced by Viva Entertainment for TV5 and Sari Sari Channel, Encounter stars Cristine Reyes and Diego Loyzaga, who play Selene and Gino, respectively.

On today’s online media conference, the two lead stars share their excitement over their first teamup together. Cristine plays the role of Selene, the CEO of Hotel d’ Trevi Hotel, and a daughter of a prominent politician who was forced to marry the son of a business tycoon but eventually gets divorced. On the other hand, Diego Loyzaga takes the role of Gino, a young and free-spirited random stranger who on a chanced encounter falls in love with Selena.

Fans of the Korean drama series that first starred Song Hye-kyo and Park Bo-gum are in for a big surprise as the much-loved story of Encounter is given a Filipino flavor, through the direction of Jeffrey Jeturian as well as the creative team behind this local remake.

Being in a relationship for these two characters will not be an easy feat with the peril of public scandals and Selene’s forfeiture of her conjugal share. 

Albeit the chaotic incidents that shaken and threatened Selene and Gino’ relationship, it is the scenic backdrops in Ilocos and Subic that put a balance to it. Find yourself entranced in the mellow and picturesque landscapes where this thrilling story unravels.

Included in the cast are Kean Cipriano, Robert Seña, Maricel Morales, Yayo Aguila, Louise delos Reyes, Gardo Versoza, Isay Alvarez, and more.

Don’t miss this love story that will go against all odds starting March 20. Catch Selene and Gino every Saturday at 8PM on TV5. There will also be catch-up airing on Sari Sari Cignal TV Channel 3 and SatLite Channel 30 every Sunday night at 9PM. The PH version of Encounter will also be available Live and On-Demand through Cignal Play App.
