I am a fan of Korean dramas. I seriously am. Korean stories are way better than tried-and-tested Filipino and American scripts, and the actors in Korean dramas are so damn good with their craft.
The recent news about Regine Velasquez who almost transferred to ABS-CBN 2 created quite a stir in showbiz. She is after all, the Philippines' biggest singing star and she has stayed with GMA 7 for more than a decade. Apparently, Regine was enticed by an offer by the network to portray the role of Betty, La Fea in the network's own version of the show. GMA 7 countered the offer of rival ABS-CBN by offering her to star in the local remake of widely popular Korean drama, My Name is Kim Sam Soon. Looks like Regine is staying with GMA. Couldn't wait to see her don the chef suit soon.
Now that reportedly, GMA 7 is doing the remake of Kim Sam Soon, another Korean drama up for a remake under the network is Full House. This too, sources say, is to be top-billed by Regine. I'd personally go for Marian Rivera instead of the 40-year old diva. Her personality is as bubbly as that of Jessie Han's, first portrayed by Song Hye Kyo. As for the role of the cold-hearted young actor, I'd like to see Billy Crawford fill in Rain's shoes. After all, Rain is to Asia as Billy Crawford is to Europe and Justin (Timberlake, that is) is to America.
