Now that they’ve already released the trailer, we are definitely getting more excited to watch ABS-CBN’s remake of the Korean hit series Pure Love (49 Days). Being a die-hard fan of the original version ourselves, we can’t help but compare the Korean actors versus their Pinoy counterparts to see if they really are a perfect fit. Alex Gonzaga seems to be a great lead, but of course, if we can have it our way, this should be how they casted the characters based per se on personalities.
