Netizens nominated former love team Piolo Pascual and Judy Ann Santos to star in the remake of “The World of the Married” or “Doctor Foster” in the Philippines.
According to Philstar.com, fans of Piolo and Juday want them to play the role of husband and wife while netizens want either Charlie Dizon, Julia Barretto, or Kylie Padilla to play as the young mistress in the popular drama series in South Korea and the US.
South Korea’s adaptation of the series known as “The World of the Married” was the country’s highest-rated drama in cable TV history.
BBC Studios and ABS-CBN Corporation recently announced that a Filipino adaptation of the “The World of the Married” would be in the making for Pinoy fans. However, the cast was not yet announced.
“It truly is an honour to know that ‘Doctor Foster’ will be coming to life in the Philippines under the extraordinary creative team at ABS-CBN Entertainment. I know that they will not only craft a unique and special story, but that they will capture the complex struggle of modern relationships from the perspective of the strong female character that sits at the heart of this series. I am confident this will be a hit among the Filipino audiences,” André Renaud, Senior Vice President Format Sales for BBC Studios said.

“We are most grateful to BBC Studios for entrusting ABS-CBN Entertainment with the Philippine version of ‘Doctor Foster.’ It is a privilege for us to be able to produce this highly engaging and relatable story for the Filipino audience. A scorned woman’s strength is real as she fights to stay whole when the marriage and family she values most is falling apart. True to our commitment to serve the Filipino, we are excited to create our own retelling of this beautiful story, to see the characters come alive with unique Filipino elements that will definitely excite our audiences,” Cory Vidanes, ABS-CBN COO of Broadcast said.
