In the closing scene, Paulo could be seen unconscious and in a hospital bed. Paulo will be playing the role of Jacob Del Rosario in the Philippine adaptation of the Korean drama. He is considered as the “real” Jacob since his identity is being used by Piolo Pascual to cover up his mysterious past.
The addition of Paulo in the series was a surprise for all the viewers as the actor was not present in any of the press conferences attended by the cast and crew of Flower of Evil. He was also not in any of the promotional materials released prior to the showing of the series.
The Filipino adaptation of Flower of Evil will be following the same plot as its South Korean counterpart. Iris, who is played by Lovi Poe, is a police detective who investigates a murder case which is linked to the past of her husband Jacob, played by Piolo.
Flower of Evil started streaming last June 23 on the streaming service platform, Viu, in 16 countries in Asia, Middle East, and South Africa. The series is also available in local television broadcast in ABS-CBN via the Kapamilya Online Live, Kapamilya Channel, and A2Z.
He will be joining the cast alongside Piolo Pascual, Lovi Poe, Denise Laurel, Joross Gamboa, JC De Vera, Agot Isidro, Joem Bascon, and many more.
