The increasing popularity of South Korean culture or more commonly known as the Korean Wave or Korean Fever sets the stage for GMA-7's newest afternoon drama aptly titled Koreana.

Introducing the fresh and promising love triangle of Kris Bernal, Steven Silva, and Rocco Nacino, Koreana tells the story of a young Filipino-Korean's journey towards discovering her roots, at the same time, fulfilling her personal destiny.

This original teleserye highlights the lead character's (played by Kris Bernal) joys and pains as she struggles through self-discovery, rejection, loss, and inevitable heartache.

Kris is happy to work with fellow Starstruck alumni Steven and Rocco, and is all the more excited to return to the afternoon block, where she first established herself as one of GMA-7's established leading ladies.

Completing the powerhouse cast of this upcoming afternoon drama are Eddie Garcia, Eula Valdez, Angelu de Leon, Lotlot de Leon, Sylvia Sanchez, Marco Morales, Sab Magalona, Joyce Ching and Ram Revilla.

The captivating journey of Koreana begins October 11 after Trudis Liit on GMA Dramarama sa Hapon.
