Blackpink Lisa and Alden Richards to star in Netflix remake of “Full House”
Production starts in 2021.
UPDATE: This is an April Fools’ post. Although a remake of “Full House” with the two isn’t something we’re against. 🙂
Netflix is making a remake of the 2004 South Korean television series “Full House”. The hit romantic comedy series, which originally starred Song Hye-kyo and Rain, is about an aspiring scriptwriter whose house has been sold to a famous actor. One of the most interesting developments in the Netflix remake is the confirmation that Blackpink member Lisa and Filipino actor Alden Richards will take on the roles of the lead characters Han Ji-eun and Young-jae.
According to a source who is involved in the production, Lisa and Richards are already confirmed to take on the lead roles. They were casted by Netflix casting director Barbara McCarthy, who also cast the Netflix Films “Tall Girl” and “Christmas Chronicles”. McCarthy supposedly scouted Richards in the 2019 Filipino film, “Hello, Love, Goodbye”.
Details of the series are yet to be released. Alden Richards was scheduled to fly to Gwangyeok-si in Incheon earlier this year however, the production was reportedly put on hold because of lockdowns brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. As of writing, there are no reports yet on when production will continue.
The first remake of “Full House” was in 2009, and starred Richard Gutierrez and Heart Evangelista from the Philippines.
