ABS-CBN announced its latest acquisition of Asia's biggest hit series namely Love in the Moonlight, Legend of the Blue Sea, Hwarang, Weightlifting Fairy, Goblin, W, and Doctors.
Evelyn Raymundo, head of ABS-CBN integrated acquisitions and international sales and distribution, disclosed this during the recently concluded 11th Pinoy Media Congress.
According to a release from ABS-CBN, the auditorium was filled with loud cheers from hundreds of communications students 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 returns to Philippine 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, inspired by the life of Olympic gold-medalist Jang Mi-ran.
There is also a period drama featuring an elite group of young, handsome men devoted to defend the king in Hwarang. Kim Taehyung To (more popularly known as V of the Bangtan Boys/BTS) made his acting debut in this historical drama.
Fantasy drama W starring Lee Jong-suk and Han Hyo-joo is also included in the lineup. 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.
Doctors, starring Park Shin Hye and Kim Rae Won, is a medical drama featuring the romantic story between a reckless rebel turned neurosurgery fellow and her mentor.
