WATCH: The Pinoy Remake of Korean Comedy Miss Granny Takes You Back in Time

It hits theaters next month!

(SPOT.ph) Given how much Pinoys love Korean culture—from K-Dramas and K-Pop to skincare and KBBQ—it's not surprising one of their hit movies is getting a Filipino remake. (Not that we're not complaining!) Sarah Geronimo and James Reid star in Miss Granny, based on the 2014 Korean comedy-drama film of the same name.

The original movie was a certified hit—it drew nearly 9 million admissions during its run and earned U.S. $59.6 million internationally. The Filipino remake is set to premiere on August 22—and by the looks of the full trailer, Pinoy- and K-movie fans have a lot to look forward to.

When Fely (Nova Villa) enters a studio to get her photo taken, she's a grouchy 70-something who isn't exactly the milk-and-cookies kind of grandma. But when she leaves, she mysteriously returns to her younger self (Geronimo) and starts calling herself Audrey. Using her singing skills and distinct '50s flair, she helps out her grandson (Reid) fulfill his dreams of becoming a musician with his rock band. But while living out her dream of performing, her family assumes that she's run away because of neglect. The film, directed by Joyce Bernal, also stars Xian Lim.
