PRODUCTION company TinCan Films has announced that the 37 year-old TV host/actress Toni Gonzaga will be starring in the Philippine remake of the hit Korean RomCom film, My Sassy Girl.

  

Last January 20, TinCan Films post on twitter: “In celebration of its 20th Anniversary, this year we will relive the classic Korean RomCom with its Philippine adaptation. On her birthday, we are proud to announce Toni Gonzaga is Philippines’ My Sassy Girl. #MySassyGirlPH”

 

The production company also released first-look stills of the actress in the upcoming film. She will be playing the role of the Sassy Girl, originally portrayed by Jun Ji Hyun.          

                               

The original Korean film follows Gyun Woo, a college student who lives his life picking up girls, drinking with his friends, and avoiding his nagger of a mother. His life changes forever when he meets a drunk girl who vomits on another passenger while riding the subway.

 

After this encounter, Gyun Woo finds himself in numerous situations with the girl, and in a relationship with her that he didn’t ask for.

 

The 2001 film stars Cha Tae Hyun as Gyun Woo and Jun Ji Hyun as the girl. It comes from director Kwak Jae Yeonwho also penned the screenplay. The film became a hit inside and outside South Korea, playing a role in the spread of the “Korean wave.”

The confirmation of Gonzaga’s part in “My Sassy Girl” comes a month after she was first rumored to be attached to the project.  Its release date and venues have yet to be announced.

 

TinCan most recently produced the fantasy rom-com Love the Way U Lie, starring Xian Lim, Kylie Versoza and Alex Gonzaga. The production outfit is under Ten17P, the film company founded by Gonzaga’s husband, Paul Soriano.
