PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked Direk Mark Reyes regarding GMA-7’s remake of this Koreanovela.

"Full House is one of the most popular dramatic comedy Koreanovelas in the country. Talagang nagustuhan ng mga Pinoy so we’re doing the Filipino version so we are trying our hardest to equate if not equate to surpass the original. We’re trying our best to make it very fresh kasi na palabas na ito sa GMA-7 then pinalabas ulit sa QTV so ito yung pangatlong beses.

"Ang uniqueness nito is that you know na it’s Filipinized," says Direk Mark. "At the same time, we’re shooting in Prague [the capital of the Czech Republic]. Sabi ng GMA, sige paggastusan natin ’yan. We’re allowing you to shoot in the beautiful city of Prague, which has never been seen in any Philippine show so that’s something to look forward to."

Direk Mark revealed that Heart’s character will be touring around Prague when she is tricked into selling her house to Justin.

When will they be leaving for Prague?

"We’re supposed to leave, if not November 12, on November 15 na. We’re shooting there for ten days."

What are the changes that they did in the Philippine version of Full House?

"Yung mga...characters dinamihan namin. For instance, sa original, babae yung manager dun ni Justin pero dito ginawa naming si Keempee de Leon so binabae yung manager niya."

"Abangan rin ng mga viewers ang mga cameo roles ng big stars as themselves kasi Richard’s character, Justin, lives in the world of showbiz kasi artista siya so magugulat na lang sila kung sinu-sino mga sisipot sa entire run ng Full House."

He then shared some details about this upcoming show, "Yung character ni Heart, meron siyang bahay tapos naloko siya. Doon sa original, niloko siya ng kaibigan pero dito, kapatid niya [to be played by Rainier Castillo] ang nanloko sa kanya na ibinenta yung bahay niya. So she didn’t have any house to stay in and nag-cross ang paths nila ni Richard. Eventually, pinayagan si Heart na tumira sila sa isang bahay at dun na nag-simula yung love story nila."

Who will sing the popular song "Three Bears"?

"Sina Richard saka si Heart. Si Richard nga nininerbyos siya doon kasi sabi niya ’hindi ba ako magmukhang...’ Sabi ko naman kaya nila yun."

The Tagalog version of "Three Bears" has lyrics that go: "May tatlong bear sa loob / ng isang bahay / si papa bear, si mama bear, / si baby bear / si papa bear ay malakas / si mama bear ay maganda / si baby bear ay napaka-liksi / tingnan nyo, tingnan n’yo ang saya nila."


Full House also popularized the saying "aja aja fighting!" This is a popular saying in Korea when one wants to encourage another to do their very best.

Meanwhile, Janno’s "Fallen" will be used once again as the theme song of Full House.
