In January 2021, Toni shared her excitement, expressing that portraying the lead role in a Philippine adaptation was the realization of a long-held dream.

“I won’t forget that,” Toni said about “My Sassy Girl,” which she watched while shooting a movie in Pampanga.

“Twenty years after the film was released, I’m given the opportunity to play the role here in the Philippines. I consider it a big blessing,” she said.

“My Sassy Girl” is a South Korean romantic comedy film released in 2001, featuring Jun Ji-hyun and Cha Tae-hyun in the lead roles. At one point, it held the title of South Korea’s most commercially successful comedy and was among the top five highest-grossing films in the country.
