Netflix has unveiled the official trailer for “Keys to the Heart,” the Filipino adaptation of the 2018 Korean film with the same title. The film features esteemed actor Lee Byung-hun, Academy Award winner Youn Yuh-jung, and Park Jeong-min.
Zanjoe Marudo takes the lead as Joma, a washed-up boxer on a quest to reconnect with his long-lost mother, portrayed by Dolly de Leon. Joma moves in with her and discovers that he has a younger autistic brother named Jayjay, played by Elijah Canlas, who happens to be an exceptionally talented pianist.
“Even though he’s like that, just let him listen to a song once, and he can play it flawlessly,” Joma’s mother shares, as we see glimpses of Jayjay playing the piano at Market! Market! and Palacio de Memoria.
Joma hatches a plan to enlist the help of Miss Universe Philippines 2023, portrayed by Michelle Dee, to enter Jayjay into a competition, despite facing resistance from some due to his condition.
“I’m incredibly grateful that I found you again, and that Jayjay has a sibling now,” expresses Dolly’s character, while Joma affectionately refers to Jayjay as a fighter.
The trailer concludes with Joma imparting boxing lessons to Jayjay, who unexpectedly lands a punch on his older brother as a boxing bell rings.
