Yassi Pressman is excited for her new project – the Filipino adaptation of the South Korean movie, “More Than Blue”.

In an interview with Inquirer, the actress stated that she has already read the script and is ready to film soon with co-star JC Santos and Marco Gumabao.

“The script is beautiful. I cry every time I finish it. I really feel the characters’ emotions,” she said about the movie, which tells the story of two orphans being soulmates. “In a love so complicated, there’s bound to be a lot of sacrifices involved. It’s a great piece and I’m happy and honoured I was chosen to be part of it.”

However, Yassi admitted that she has neither watched the original Korean movie starring Kwon Sang-Woo and Lee Bo-Young, nor its Taiwanese remake starring Jasper Liu and Ivy Chen.

“I want to create this version without the thoughts about how the original actors did the film. I want to be as natural as I can. I don’t want to end up copying what they did,” she said.

The upcoming movie will be directed by Nuel Naval.
