“Space Sweepers” is the latest Netflix film to win the hearts of many Filipino audiences.
The film, a collaboration between the streaming giant and South Korea, is currently the most viewed film in the platform over the weekend—topping the “Top 10 in the Philippines” list since its release.
Starring Song Joong-ki, Space Sweepers follows space debris salvagers crew Victory, who while on a mission discovers an android robot. Unknown to them, this robot is being hunted down by many troops.
While many people have raved its groundbreaking action sequences, some Filipinos noticed something familiar during the movie.
In one scene, the Victory crew gather in a restaurant to talk about how they can sort out their problem with the robot. While discussing, a worker speaking in Filipino interrupts their conversation.
“O-order ba kayo? Kung hindi na naman, umalis na kayo.”
(Are you going to order? If not, get out.)
Moments after this, a background actor can be heard saying “Sinong bata ito?” (Who is this child?)
