Paging ‘Secretary Kim’ Chiu, digital streaming queen

Following her much-followed star turn in the Amazon hit series Linlang, the actress is set to star in the Filipino adaptation of the Korean drama series What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim alongside Filipino oppa Paulo Avelino, this time for Viu.

ABS-CBN and Viu Philippines are joining forces to bring one of South Korea’s most beloved and watched dramas to local audiences.

Chiu and Avelino will play Secretary Kim and Mr. Vice-Chairman, respectively, originally performed by Park Min Young and Park Seo-joon.

Produced by the award-winning Dreamscape Entertainment, the show marks the third adaptation of a top-rated international series between ABS-CBN and Viu, following The Broken Marriage Vow and Flower of Evil.

“We are thrilled to bring the Philippine adaptation of a popular K-drama series to our viewers as we also showcase Filipino talent across the world,” said Cory Vidanes, ABS-CBN’s COO of broadcast.

Marianne Lee, Chief of Content Acquisition and Development at Viu, echoed the sentiment, saying, “We look forward to its success not just in the Philippines but across all our markets.”

Scheduled to air in 2024, What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim revolves around a handsome, narcissistic company VP whose perfect world crumbles when his competent secretary announces her resignation.

The series explores their journey as they develop romantic feelings for each other.

Chiu and Avelino were also together in Linlang, so fans expect their chemistry and performances to be even more off the charts in What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim.
