From Pinoy serye to K-drama?

Avid viewers of Net25’s latest comedy series, Good Will, are in for a surprise treat this weekend when lead characters Lloyd Patawad (David Chua) and Sarah (Devon Seron) recreate an iconic scene from Goblin, the phenomenally acclaimed 2016 K-drama series which catapulted Gong Yoo, Kim Go-eun and Lee Dong-wook to superstardom.

In Good Will‘s 5th episode, a pensive Sarah is shown enjoying her afterhours moment of solitude by the resort’s poolside. As she tries to ponder the whereabouts of her lost bracelet—a treasured family heirloom, she claims—part of her is quick to pin the blame on the unsuspecting rockstar wannabe.

Ironically, part of her thinks otherwise, as she loses her sense of logic and reason while daydreaming— this time, with Lloyd as her romantic interest.

The imaginary daydream sequence finds Sarah garbed in a hoodie jacket, face to face with an impeccably dressed Lloyd, looking every inch like a K-pop star. The two cross paths along a narrow passage, with Lloyd stopping in his tracks while giving her a recognizing glance. As she trots along nonchalantly, Lloyd’s face reflects a tinge of sadness and regret.

As Lloyd regains his composure, he shuffles off and eventually vanishes into the night.

Apparently, the Goblin nod is the brainchild of David, a self-confessed Goblin fan who has always been very vocal about his plans of doing a local adaptation of the well-loved K-drama series.

“It was groundbreaking on so many levels,” exclaims the Good Will lead star, who is also a respected director and producer. “I think it set the bar for the other Korean dramas that followed soon after. The plot, the production, and of course, the acting defined a whole new paradigm.”

He continues, “You could say it was just a flight of fancy, and we thought it would serve as a challenge for the team as well. If we could just replicate the look, and I think we did, then it served its purpose.”

“It’s still a big dream that started during the pandemic. I still try to imagine and visualize it. I know it’s just a matter of time before we turn that dream to reality.”

In the meantime, Lloyd Patawad and his cohorts try their darnedest best to find Sarah’s  bracelet and catch the culprit dead in his tracks.

Did Atty. Ferrer’s investigative powers give them any sensible clues?
