ABS-CBN announced its latest acquisition of Asia’s biggest hit series namely “Love in the Moonlight,” “Legend of the Blue Sea,” “Hwoarang,” “Weightlifting Fairy,” “Goblin,” “W,” and “Doctors.”
Evelyn Raymundo, head of ABS-CBN integrated acquisitions and international sales and distribution, shared the news before hundreds of communications students from different schools at the recently concluded 11th Pinoy Media Congress. The auditorium was filled with loud cheers as Raymundo showed trailers of these Asianovela hits.
First in line is “Love in the Moonlight,” which airs very soon on ABS-CBN. It stars Korea’s breakout loveteam Park Bo Gum and Kim Joo Yung in a funny and romantic story of a crown prince who falls in love with a young woman disguised as a eunuch.
“Love in the Moonlight” is one of the most anticipated Korean dramas by Filipino Asianovela fans. The clamor is so high that lead star Bo Gum’s supposedly private and personal visit to Cebu recently was welcomed by screaming fans and even trended on Twitter Philippines.
International superstar Lee Min Ho, meanwhile, is back on PH television with one of Korea’s top leading ladies, Jun Ji Hyun, in a different love story about a mermaid in love with a human in “Legend of the Blue Sea.”
Fans of “Train to Busan” lead star Gong Yoo get to see him again, this time as an immortal protector of souls in hit series “Goblin.”
The Asianovela craze continues with the coming of age sports drama “Weightlifting Fairy,” and a ‘kilig’-filled series that features an elite group of young, handsome men devoted to defend the king in “Hwarang.”
Fantasy drama “W” starring Lee Jong-suk and Han Hyo-joo is also coming your way as well as “Doctors” starring Park Shin Hye and Kim Rae Won. “W” tells the story of a woman pulled inside the parallel world of a webtoon his father created, where she meets the lead character Kang Cheol. Meanwhile, medical drama “Doctors” features the romantic story between a reckless rebel turned neurosurgery fellow and her mentor.
