PRESS STATEMENT FROM GMA-7:
"GMA shows Marimar and Dyesebel have a lot in common among them, Marian Rivera, phenomenal ratings, and an unmistakably huge following not only in the Philippines but also among other South East Asian countries just like Vietnam.
"On November 4 and 5, Vietnam’s widely known admiration for these two GMA programs and needless to say, the Kapuso Primetime Queen herself will be rekindled as she visits her fans in the country.
"Marian has been invited to appear on several shows on TODAY TV, one of the first Vietnamese TV networks to ever broadcast Filipino dramas—with Marimar and Dyesebel as among the first programs to ignite the popularity of Filipino dramas in Vietnam. Marian will also have a presscon with the members of the local press.
"Earlier this year, Dennis Trillo, Carla Abellana and Michelle Madrigal experienced the warmth and affection of Vietnamese supporters when they attended Vietnam Today’s 5th Anniversary Celebration. And Marian, simply cannot wait to share the same experience.
“Sobrang excited ako na makita at makapag-perform para sa aking mga Vietnamese fans. Isa itong pagkakataon na makapagpasalamat sa kanilang suporta at mainit na pagtanggap sa mga Kapuso programs lalong na na Marimar at Dyesebel kaya naman lubos ang pasasalamat ko sa TODAY TV para sa kanilang imbitasyon,” she says.
"2014 will see more GMA dramas on Today TV with deals for titles like My Husband’s Lover, Deception (Mundo Mo’y Akin), One True Love, It Might Be You (Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga), To Love You (Ikaw Sana), Secret Affairs (Gumapang Ka Sa Lusak), Second Chances (Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin), La Vendetta, Dangerous Love (Ang Babaeng Hinugot Sa Aking Tadyang), Beauty Within (Blusang Itim), Love and Lies and Chasing Moments (Pahiram ng Sandali) already in the offing."
