1. What is your budget? (what do you mean by cheap?)
2. Do you want to buy new or second hand ?
the cheapest digital pianos with weighted hammer action are the ones produced by Medeli in Hongkong. They are sold under various names in Europe, most commonly under the "Hemingway" brand name.

Of course, these instruments will not meet the needs of an advanced pianist, but they will do the job for a beginner.
In general, I find it rather "special" to buy a piano in order to play one piece only. Furthermore, Yiruma is rhythmically not easy. I do like him, have played a lot of his pieces (my favourite is "Kiss the rain") and don't think a beginner could be able to accurately play them.
