If you're getting some Korean drama vibes from"He's Into Her," that's because director Chad Vidanes referenced from some of the most loved K-dramas in the country.
During a virtual conference on Monday, May 25, Direk Chad said that they used some K-dramas as pegs for the music, feel, and visual look of the series.
"Mainly siguro for the music and the feel of the series, ang pinaka-peg ko d'yan is 'Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo'," he said.
"And for the visual look, I worked with my director of photography to peg 'Love Alarm'. That's our visual reference. Also 'Crash Landing On You'. That's what we try to pull off," he added.
Direk Chad also shared how much these dramas' Original Soundtracks helped stir kilig during the romantic scenes of the love teams.
"Also during [the shoot], always when we have kilig scenes, I always motivate them with music. We always use soundtracks of these Korean dramas," he shared.
The overall energy of "He's Into Her" is also comparable to that of K-dramas.
"Ang maico-compare ko is the energy that this drama has. Kasi 'yung feel ng series is very fresh, very young. So dapat may ganung energy lang," he said.
