Director Jun Lana calls out netizens who watch pirated copies of films. He reacted when an ElNella fan expressed excitement to watch My Fairy Tail Love Story after watching Die Beautiful. MFTLS is an upcoming movie starring Janella Salvador and Elmo Magalona that will be helmed by Direk Jun.


Film director Jun Lana lambasted moviegoers who watch pirated copies of movies through his Twitter account last Saturday, April 15.

A netizen using the handle @allforelnella expressed excitement for Direk Jun's upcoming movie starring Janella Salvador and Elmo Magalona titled My Fairy Tail Love Story (MFTLS).

The tweet has already been deleted, but the tweet could have said, "Can't wait for MFTLS" since Direk Jun quoted the netizen.

He replied: "You mean 'can't wait for pirated MFTLS', just like the pirated copy of Die Beautiful you just saw? Gee thanks."

Direk Jun helmed the 2016 Metro Manila Film Festival entry Die Beautiful that starred Paolo Ballesteros.


Direk Jun then posted another tweet where he wrote, "Pag nanood kayo ng pirated copy ng isang movie, wag nyo na ipagyabang tas itatag nyo pa at ikocongrats ang filmmakers. Idiots."


Direk Jun's sentiments might have stemmed from what happened in MMFF 2016 wherein some people proudly shared that they watched pirated copies of Die Beautiful.
