Young superstar Kim Chiu & Korean sensation Ryan Bang drive away the blues in Da One That Goes Away
Star Cinema's latest offering screening outside the Philippines via TFC@theMovies, brings in the scare middle of the year with a new tandem and a shocking twist
"Da One That Ghost Away", screening overseas via TFC@theMovies starting April 27, gives audiences a refreshing respite for many reasons and veers away from other movie offerings from many angles.
First, Star Cinema's second quarter flick departs from the usual romance – comedy offering this time of the year. Instead, the film production and distribution unit of the largest and leading Filipino-owned media and entertainment company ABS-CBN, brings together the new tandem of Chinita Heartthrob Kim Chiu and Korean sensation Ryan Bang in a movie where they start of as friends fighting a common enemy -- spooks.
"Da One That Ghost Away" breaks away from the romance department as it brings a scare fest this season.
But while "Da One That Goes Away" is no romance flick, Bang admits that in real life, he has an admiration for Chiu. Bang says that even if Chiu does not speak, he understands her. Making a reference to the film, ghosts may escape them time and again and the Korean actor admits that in real life, "Kim is my 'the one that got away'". On the receiving end, Chiu herself has a newly found admiration for Bang. "It's already a given that he is funny. However, in this movie, you can see his passion. He is so good in ad-lib and Director Tony Reyes and I find ourselves saying 'that was not in the script.'" As early as now, new fans have come out and have already developed a moniker for the two – ChiKo for Chinese - Korean.
Second, "Da Ghost That Got Away" lets Chiu portrays a different role in a horror movie with a dose of comedy, as a young woman Carmel Monseratt who takes the helm of their family business P.E.K.T.U.S. or Paranormal Extraction and Kulam, Try Us and tries indeed to resuscitate it from bankruptcy.
Third, the Star Cinema offering brings back comic director Tony Y. Reyes in a movie that will also provide a surprising reveal in the end that will make viewers believe in themselves.
Reyes reveals he was amazed at the cast. "I didn't know they were hilarious. Our camaraderie was felt even after each take. We would just find ourselves laughing endlessly," he shares.
Helping Chiu and Bang drive away the boredom and bring in the laughs are "Ang Probinsyano's"
