ABS-CBN has finally announced the complete cast of its much-awaited series Flower of Evil, starring Kapamilya stars Lovi Poe and Piolo Pascual.
In photos shared by producer Dreamscape Entertainment from Sunday's (November 21) story conference, Lovi and Piolo were joined by cast members Robert Seña, Epy Quizon, Jett Pangan, Pinky Amador, Agot Isidro, and Rita Avila.
Kit Thompson and Denise Laurel were also spotted. Though not present, Joross Gamboa and Edu Manzano were also announced as part of the show's cast.
Flower of Evil is an adaptation of the hit South Korean series of the same title. Originally starring Lee Joon-Gi and Moon Chae-Won, it follows the story of a man who tries to hide his twisted past from his wife, who is a detective—until she discovers his secrets while investigating a string of unexplained murders.
The series, which is currently streaming on Netflix, was nominated for Best Drama and Best Screenplay at the 57th Baeksang Arts Awards. Kim Cheol-kyu, who helmed the show, won Best Director, while Joon-gi won Best Actor for his role as Baek Hee-sung.
The Philippine adaptation of Flower of Evil was announced last September, when Lovi and Piolo signed their contracts as artists of ABS-CBN.
Earlier, Lovi said she considers working with Piolo—on her first project as an official Kapamilya, no less—a dream come true.
"Oh my god. Nung unang sinabi nila sa akin na I'll be working with Mr. Piolo Pascual, I was really excited and talagang sabi ko, oh my god, this like such a dream come true. I've been wanting to work with him... I'm just glad because they're trusting me with such an amazing project and of course, na makakapareha ko pa si Mr. Piolo Pascual," she said.
Flower of Evil is Lovi's second project with ABS-CBN overall, after the 2020 iWantTFC original movie Malaya, for which she earned a best actress nod at the 44th Gawad Urian Awards.
Meanwhile, aside from suspense-drama, Piolo is also set to star in a romantic-comedy series opposite Angelica Panganiban. The two have worked in the teleserye Mangarap Ka back in 2014, and in the Star Cinema movie Every Breath U Take in 2012.
Further details about Flower of Evil, such as its target premiere date, has yet to be announced as of this writing.
