MANILA – ABS-CBN chief content officer Charo Santos Concio teased some updates about “Whether the Weather is Fine,” her upcoming movie with Daniel Padilla.

In an interview on Monday, Concio said: “Abangan natin iyan. I think they have plans of submitting it to some festivals. I don’t know when it will be shown here.”

She also shared how she finds Padilla as an actor.

“Magaling. He has the instincts of an actor. He does his homework. Inaaral niya ang character niya. Sa set naman, maalaga siya. Feeling ko si Yoon Se-ri ako,” she said, drawing laughter.

“Nagkita nga kami nung Friday. Nag-dub kami. Sabi ko I hope you evolve into a Hyun Bin. Pero sabi ko, ‘Bata ka pa naman, you’re allowed to have your adventure.’ But if he matures… you see naman how he takes care of Kathryn (Bernardo),” she added.

Yoon Se-ri and Hyun Bin are the lead stars of the South Korean series "Crash Landing on You."

Directed by Carlo Francisco Manatad, “Whether the Weather is Fine” is about the aftermath of the devastating typhoon Yolanda that hit the country in November 2013.

Manatad was born in Tacloban, one of the hardest-hit areas by supertyphoon.

The film will also feature new actress Francinne Rifol, also known as Rans, from all-Pinay girl group MNL48. 

The official synopsis for it reads: "Against the backdrop of the typhoon Yolanda, a mother (Santos) and her son (Padilla) struggle for survival and deal with absurdity of fate, sustained by the hope that they carry, and what is lost and gained.
