Filipino heartthrob Piolo Pascual and equally talented KC Concepcion were exceptionally sweet together during the first shoot of the ABS-CBN remake of famous Korean television series “Lovers in Paris."

The two hot stars of the decade are in Paris to shoot important scenes of the series.

Pascual and Concepcion are playing the role of Carlo and Vivian in the Pinoy-remake of the Korean series that became a hit in the Philippines.

For Concepcion, it’s a dream come true to play the role of Vivian as this will give her the chance to work closely with the most sought-after leading man in Philippine movies.

The young model-singer-actress stepped out of her parents’ shadows and successfully established a name for herself in the entertainment industry. Concepcion is the daughter of mega star Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion.

Meanwhile, Pascual not only admires Concepcion’s acting talent but also her broad knowledge on the rich culture of France. Concepcion studied in Paris for almost five years.

The shoot in Paris will last until the end of March. The actor said the shoot abroad is a welcome break away from intrigues back home.

Veteran director John Lazatin is confident that the Piolo-KC loveteam will click. Lazatin will fuse Filipino flavor in the original Korean soap opera that Pinoy fans will surely enjoy.

Lazatin gained popularity after directing “Sarah, the teen Princess”--the first television series of box-office queen Sarah Geronimo—and movies “Because of You” and “Forevermore”.

The playdate for the local version of Lovers in Paris in the Philippines is in July. Danny Buenafe, ABS-CBN Europe News Bureau, Paris
