The event was attended by a number of Kapuso stars, including veteran actress and director, Gina Alajar. Out of all the characters, it's only her role that has been confirmed so far—she will be playing halmeoni or Mrs. Choi (Kim Hae Sook), the grandma of Dal Mi (Bae Suzy) who is also fond of Ji Pyeong (Kim Seon Ho).

Although their roles are not yet revealed aside from Gina Alajar, K-drama fans *found* proof that our good boy is going to be Dal Mi's endgame in this adaptation! In the March 28 episode of 24 Oras, we saw a sneak peek of the lead stars' characters: Bea will portray Danica "Dani" Sison while Alden will transform into Tristan "Good Boy" Hernandez. Omo!

If you can remember, the OG Start-Up ended with Dal Mi and Do San (Nam Joo Hyuk) tying the knot and Ji Pyeong wasn't able to get the happiness he deserves. For the PH remake, our fingers are crossed and we're manifesting a ~better~ ending for him!
