Philippine Kim Sam Soon Cast Revealed

GMA Network recently revealed the cast of the Philippine remake of My Name is Kim Sam Soon. A couple of months back the network had disclosed that Regine Velasquez will be spearheading the cast of one of the most popular Korean dramas of all time. She will be playing the role of Kim Sam Soon, a role first popularized by Kim Sun Ah all over Asia. In a similar fashion, she is set to gain weight to look the part, as Kim Sun Ah had done previously.

Mark Anthony Fernandez portrays the male lead Cyrus (Hyun Jin Heon in the original Korean) popularized by Hyun Bin while hunky doctor Hayden Kho Jr reprises the role of Daniel Henney as Dr. Henry Kim. Nadine Samonte plays the role of Hanna Yoo (Yoo Hee-jin in the original series), a part first played by Jung Ryu Won.

Other members of the cast include Wendell Ramos who portrays Harvey Min (Min Hyun-Woo in the Korean version), Ms. Tessie Tomas, Carmi Martin, Jennica Garcia, Mart Escudero, Pauleen Luna, Marky Lopez, Arthur Solinap, Sheena Halili, Maureen Larrazabal, Kevin Santos, and John ‘Sweet' Lapus.

Insiders reveal that the show is set to replace Joaquin Bordado in July.

Hmmm...very interesting pair, indeed. Will they have the chemistry? I personally am not a fan of Regine's acting (I didn't like her facial expressions), but I will still watch the show.

..just bloghopping! janu_jenn, shutterhappy jenn, and familia khuletz wishes you a great week ahead!
