My Fair Lady is a Korean drama aired by ABS-CBN in the afternoon block in 2011.
Starring South Korean actress Yoon Eun-hye, the story revolves around a lady who lives a “princess-like” life.
The TV5 adaptation will be directed by Ricky Rivero, who was Wenn Deramas’ second unit director in TV shows Mula sa Puso, Wako Wako and Kahit Puso’y Masugatan. He is currently appearing as an actor in the Kapamilya afternoon teleserye Flordeliza.
TV5 is currently airing another Korean drama adaptation, Baker King, starring Mark Neumann.
