Eva Fonda took home the special prize award during the recent Seoul International Drama Awards 2009 for the drama category. The series' lead actress Cristine Reyes personally received the award in Korea.
The Kapamilya actress is very happy and overwhelmed because her program is known not only in the Philippines but in this neighboring country. The actress also shared that when she went to Korea, some Koreans would address her as Eva Fonda. Cristine did not expect the warm welcome that she received from her supporters who also asked for her autograph and photo with her.
This is the first time that the Philippines was awarded since the prestigious international award giving body started four years ago.
169 soap operas from 37 countries joined, including entries from Russia, Turkey, UK, Singapore and Iran. Cristine as well as the entire Eva Fonda staff are thankful for the award which gives recognition to their hard work.
Joining Cristine in Korea were ABS-CBN Head of TV Entertainment Linggit Tan and the two directors of Eva Fonda, John Red and Frasco Mortiz.
Also nominated as Best Actress, Cristine presented two awards during the recent awards ceremony which was held last Friday, September 11, at the Olympic Park in South Korea.
