Doing a remake constitutes risk. Fans from the original series are expecting for the remake to give justice for the story and the roles of the cast. But we’re sorry to say, GMA‘s own remake of Coffee Prince starring Kris Bernal and Aljur Abrenica is what we considered a piece of crap.
Coffee Prince is considered to be a classic Korean drama and one of the most popular K-drama of all time starring hallyu stars Yoon Eun Hye and Gong Yoo. The story is categorically a romantic comedy drama and not a sitcom which is currently the Philippine remake is showing the viewers.
By the way, I appreciated how Kris Bernal gives effort to portray Go Eun Chan (Andy) character. She is doing well and eventually shows how effortless she can be as a tomboy or playing a male character. But apparently only her and her sister in the series Kim Komatsu are making their roles in the right track and the rest are just awful jokes!
The writer(s) should RE-WATCHED the whole story of 17 episodes and examine thoroughly the purpose of the characters in this series. I couldn’t agree more why this remake is not doing well in the rating games! And I heard some news that this one will end on the last week of November?! Hmm it’s just started!
Fans of AlKris immaturely defend the series saying that, ” Remake kaya ito, alangan namang hindi baguhin, eh remake nga”.
We say, “Yes, changes and twists may occur in the remake to give new flavor for the viewers, but changing the depth and the original concept of the characters are VERY UNACCEPTABLE. Only smart and open-minded people can think and see that.”
Coffee Prince airs in Kapuso network as part of GMA telebabad.
