Fans have picked the "perfect" reunion on TV for their idols Judy Ann Santos and Piolo Pascual.
The project? A Pinoy version of the hit K-drama series The World of a Married Couple!
On June 26, 2020, a Facebook page called Juday-Piolo Forever uploaded a fan-made teaser with the caption, "This will be the perfect reunion project for them if ever. Agree?"
The teaser was created by netizen @imkadorachi, a loyal Judy Ann fan on Twitter.
Clips of Judy Ann and Piolo's old teleseryes were set to the audio of The World of a Married Couple's Tagalized trailer.
The former love-team partners were cast as the drama's lead stars: Judy Ann as Dr. Ji Sun Woo and Piolo as Sun Woo's unfaithful husband, Lee Tae-Oh. The characters are known as Sandy and Tony, respectively, in the Tagalog-dubbed version.
The fan-made teaser also included Arci Munoz to play Tae-Oh’s mistress, Yeo Da-Kyung, also known as Denice in the Tagalog-dubbed version.
@imkadorachi first uploaded the teaser on Twitter and wrote (published as is): "Judy Ann Santos x Piolo Pascual in an imaginary Pinoy adaptation of korean hit series “The World Of A Married Couple”
"P.S - Wala ako mahanap na kalaplapan ni Papa P. na medyo younger kaya si Arci ang gaganap bilang kabit. haha"
At press time, the reposted video on Juday-Piolo Forever’s Facebook page has generated 8.2K reactions and 1.2K shares.
Most of the fans agreed in the comments section that The World of a Married Couple is the perfect material for a Judy Ann-Piolo reunion project.
The World of a Married Couple, dubbed as 2020’s highest-rating K-drama on cable, currently airs on the Kapamilya Channel and is down to its last three weeks.
ABS-CBN, however, has not announced any plans of doing an adaptation of the K-drama.
JUDY ANN-PIOLO REUNION
It has been 14 years since Judy Ann and Piolo worked together for a TV or movie project.
Their last movie was Don’t Give Up On Us, shown in January 2006. They were last seen together on the small screen in the prime-time teleserye Sa Piling Mo, which aired from February 2006 to August 2006.
In 2017, Judy Ann and Piolo worked together as endorsers of an insurance company.
When is the right time for their reunion project on TV?
During her press conference for Paano Kita Mapapasalamatan in June 2020, Judy Ann said, “Siguro kapag nagkaroon na ng vaccine at pwede na lumabas lahat ng tao... siguro matutuloy na siya.”
For Judy Ann, it has always been about finding the right material, “Parati ko namang sinasabi kapag may magtatanong, wala namang imposible sa buhay na ito at sa panahong ito. It’s just a matter of time.
“Nagkataon lang, inabot kami ng COVID. I guess hahaba pa ang panahon bago kami makagawa ng project together. It’s just also a matter of right material.
“Ang tagal, ilang dekada na ang nagdaan after nung huli naming project. Habang tumatagal, mas lalong dapat may substance iyong material. Mas worth it panoorin kasi matagal inabangan.
“Gusto ko isipin na with this lockdown, magkakaroon ng magandang material na napapanahon at sobrang worth it gawin. Baka kapag nagkita kami, pareho na puti ang buhok namin!”
