Top Asianovelas air on ABS-CBN
The TV station that gave you Taiwan’s Meteor Garden, which gripped the nation and topped the TV ratings chart six years ago, will soon air the Korean version of the hit Asianovela.
ABS-CBN head of Program Acquisitions Leng Raymundo announced that the Kapamilya network has officially bagged the exclusive TV and cable TV rights to air Boys Over Flowers, the Korean remake of Japanese manga Hana Yori Dango that is currently the No. 1 show in Korea, and Taiwan’s hit series Hot Shot starring Jerry Yan of F4.
Boys Over Flowers tells the story of a girl named Geum Jan-di who, after receiving a scholarship grant to enter the prestigious high school Shinwa High, crosses paths with a group of rich, popular and handsome boys called “F4” (short for “Flower 4”).
This romantic story was first adapted in Taiwan as the phenomenal hit drama Meteor Garden (also aired on ABS-CBN) starring sensational boyband F4. It remains to be one of the most successful Asianovelas aired on Philippine TV.
Meanwhile, the Taiwanese series Hot Shot makes its TV debut on March 30 as it joins the jam-packed roster of ABS-CBN’s Hapontastic.
A story filled with romance, comedy and hard court action, Hot Shot combines three of Taiwan’s hottest hunks that include Jerry Yan, Wu Chun and Show Lo.
