Yoon Eun Hye and Joo Ji Hoon’s Princess Hours Returns To ABS-CBN as Part of Kapamilya Gold!


Korean Hallyu superstar Yoon Eun Hye returns to Kapamilya network as her first aired K-drama on the Philippines, Princess Hours will re-broadcast by ABS-CBN as part of Kapamilya Gold this November!

Princess Hours Kapamilya GoldAlso known as Goong internationally, the number 1 hit K-drama which also features Kim Jeong-hoon and Song Ji-hyo was first aired in ABS-CBN on Primetime slot where viewers got hooked up even if it was slated at the last slot of the Primetime Bida. Princess Hours had re-runs on its sister network network, Studio 23.

The K-drama tells a story about young love in face of tradition, politics, and intrigue. In the imaginary world, modern-day Korea is a constitutional monarchy and the Royal Family lives in a grand Palace, the Goong. Story opens with the sudden death of the reigning the King. Faced with the decreasing popularity among the public for the Royalty, a grand wedding for the Crown Prince, Lee Shin, is decided to be the best publicity move to improve the image of the Royalty and at the same time prepare Shin for immediate succession. The intended bride? The headstrong, awkward, and sweet spirited Shin Chae Kyung that just happens to go to the same exclusive art school. Chae Kyung was betrothed to become the next Crown Princess by her grandfather and Shin’s grandfather.

After 14 years of living in England with his mom, Lee Yul appears all of a sudden. He is Shin’s cousin as well as the former Crown Prince. Everything seemed to be going normally until Chae Kyung’s optimistic spirit wins the heart of internally lonely, Yul. As the Crown Prince Shin and simple-minded Chae Kyung’s relationship appear to developing deeper feelings, a series of scandals are exposed to the public right after the pair were officially announced married. Will love prevail all in a world of political pressures and martial hardships? Or will being in the spotlight of the public be too much for the young newlyweds to endure?

Princess Hours will start airing on November 18, 2013 on 5:15 (pm)PST replacing The Love Story Of Kang Chi.

Yoon Eun Hye Takes Hallyu Star Award and Female Popularity Award for Missing You on MBC Drama Awards 2012


Considered as Philippines’ K-Drama Queen, Yoon Eun Hye takes 2 awards on the recently concluded MBC Drama Awards 2012 for her drama Missing You a.k.a. I Miss You.

mbc drama awards 2012 yoon eun hyeEun Hye is a very popular Korean actress in Philippines due to successful broadcast of her Korean drama series which were aired by 2 major rival networks in the country, ABS-CBN and GMA. The Kapamilya network (ABS-CBN) aired her dramas such as Goong or Princess Hours and My Fair Lady  while the Kapuso network (GMA) broadcast her series namely Coffee Prince and Lie To Me. All four dramas have remarkable ratings on their respective time-slots.

YEH takes the Hallyu Star Award for her international fame and recognition as a dramatic actress. She also won Most Popular Actress or the Female Popularity Award for her hit drama I Miss You which garnered 6 awards on that night. [Click here to see more awards of I Miss You]

On the contrary, she missed the Best Actress Award which is ultimately a disappointing decision by MBC (I thought) because she delivered a superb performance in this drama portraying a raped victim who wants to erase the bad memories of her childhood especially to that particular event. But it would still be a happy awards night since she got 2 awards.

Meanwhile, reports circulated that her current drama I Miss You had already been purchased by ABS-CBN and will soon to air next year, 2013.

Why Philippine Version of Coffee Prince Ends Immediately Just Roughly 2 Months?!


Kris Bernal and Aljur Abrenica come-back as loveteam in Primetime via Philippine version of Coffee Prince is considered a failure at all since it suffered low ratings and bombarded with a lots of negative feedback from overseas fans of the original series.

CP runs from October 8, 2012 – November 23, 2012, roughly 2 months of broadcast based on 17 episodes of the original series starring Hallyu stars Yoon Eun Hye and Gong Yoo. Why this series ended too early?! Several issues and factor are linked to their early finale.

FLOP SERIES

According to Kantar Media TV ratings CP achieves an average weekday ratings of 11%-13% ranking from 10th to 11th spot. On the contrary, based on AGB Nielsen, the said remake has accumulated an average of 21%-23% with an average rank of 5th. ( View Coffee Prince TV Ratings). From this information, it is an eye-opener for viewers that the Pinoy remake is a certified flop compared to the original series and other Korean drama remakes.

NEGATIVE FEEDBACK

Overseas fans especially from Asian countries, Europe and U.S.A. reacted to the Pinoy version and quoting, “They murdered the whole series!!”. Even the local fans, Filipinos felt that the comedy drama series was shifted to another genre, sitcom. In addition, some characters in the remake plays opposite in the original. For example Max Collins who played Arlene whose character became a contravida or the antagonist in the series when in fact in the original Max’s role is supposed to be an understanding, trustworthy, loyal and good friend not just to Arthur (Aljur’s role) but among others. (Click here to view more negative feedback)

Ending So Fast & Too Early: No Extension

In just roughly 2 months or 35 days, the Pinoy remake airs its finale with a funny yet copy-cat wedding of the lead actors, Kris becoming the groom while Aljur is the bride. Some netizens stresses, they copied it from Taiwan series It Started With A Kiss.

Fans defended the fast and early ending and short period of broadcast of the said drama quoting “Coffee Prince is a mini series with 17 episodes, so there’s no need to extend or have turn of events”. Apparently, there are other Pinoy remakes of Korean drama which have fewer episodes like My Name is Kim Sam Soon with 16 episodes played by Regine Velasquez and was aired from June 30, 2008 – October 10, 2008, roughly four (4) months and Only You with 16 episodes starring Angel Locsin and was broadcast in 4 months from April 27, 2009 – August 21, 2009. Both Pinoy remakes took extension due to success. Therefore, Coffee Prince disappoints TV viewers!

Aljur Abrenica “The Bride” & Kris Bernal “The Groom” in Coffee Prince PH Remake Finale

REAL REASON ON THE EARLY ENDING:

Coffee Prince PH and AlKris fans reveals that the MBC, the original broadcast network of CP and GMA has tight agreement in the contract so there was no extension due to contract, quoting “Y asking #CoffeePrinceFinale is Too short. It’s all about the CONTRACT that they have and not the Ratings”. If that is so, then why GMA did not proposed for extension of Coffee Prince if it is really doing good in TV ratings game like what happened to PH remakes, My Name is Kim Sam Soon and Only You?!

According to an insider, the extension is impossible and if there was proposal it would 100% dropped off due to its low ratings and negative feedback from the fans of the original series. The writer of the drama have heard it and did not like the idea of changing the concept of series as it was airing. They relayed it to MBC and discovered such issues about the remake.

GOOD ACTING

We doubted Kris’ capability as an actress for portraying Go Eun Chan or Andy in the said series at first, but eventually she pulled it through until the last minute with male gestures that is hard to unveil. Another good performance is credited to Kim Komatsu for playing Andy’s sister. The original concept of her role comes up naturally.

Coffee Prince Pinoy remake aired its finale last Friday, November 23 on GMA7 andn trends on Twitter with the hashtag #CoffeePrinceFinale nationwide.

Lie To Me’s Yoon Eun Hye and JYJ’s Park Yoochun Cast In Upcoming K-drama “I Miss You”


Lie To Me star Yoon Eun Hye is back in the small screen after 1 and half year hiatus together with  JYJ’s Park Yoo Chun in upcoming drama “I Miss You“. Finally YEH is back!

The 20-episode melodrama is described as a hide-and-seek love story, about a pair of teenagers who fall in love and get painfully separated, and then meet again as adults. There’s not a whole lot to the plot other than that, so it looks like a Fate vs. First Loves kind of story — heavy on the angst with a side of salty tears. The fifteen-year old versions of the leads will be played by Moon/Sun’s Yeo Jin-gu and Kim So-hyun, who are both delightful and becoming stars in their own right.

And then following the painful period of Ye First Love Torn Asunder, we’ll meet up with our adult cast: Yoochun who plays Han Jung-woo, a cheeky detective in the violent crimes unit, and Yoon Eun-hye as Lee Soo-yeon, a talented rookie fashion designer. Both characters are cheerful types, which is a huge relief, considering the amount of times the words “pain” and “separation” appear in any given description of the project. The heroine is bright and confident, despite carrying a deep scar from something in her past, and the hero is a cheeky monkey off-duty, and a baddie-chasing fiend when he’s wearing his gun and badge.

The drama will be helmed by PD Lee Jae-dong of Can’t Lose and Thank You, and written by Moon Hee-jung of Can You Hear My Heart and Smile, You.

I Miss You follows Arang and the Magistrate and premieres in November on MBC.

Yoon Eun Hye Criticized For Tweet About Riding The Bus For The First Time In Ten Years!


Korean Hallyu star, Yoon Eun Hye recently gets several criticisms from netizens with regards to her post in Twitter  about riding the bus for the first time in ten years. Yoon is popular in Philippines due to her hit series Princess Hours, Coffee Prince and My Fair Lady.

On December 4, Yoon Eun Hye tweeted, “I had a valuable experience today. I took the public transportation for the first time in almost ten years. My manager half-forced me to take the bus to go to the bookstore, and he’s been embarrassing me by snapping away photos. Ahh it was unbelievable. But why do I have butterflies in my stomach? Oh! We should leave the seats for children and the elderly to sit because buses are dangerous. I was only on the bus for a little while but the bus was swaying and I was stumbling everywhere. It must be really dangerous for those without much strength in their arms and legs.” She also uploaded a photo of herself waiting for the bus at a bus stop.

Unfortunately, many netizens have expressed their discomfort and discontent at Yoon Eun Hye’s post, commenting “How is riding the bus to go to a bookstore a valuable experience?” “I feel like we live in different worlds. She definitely did not think this through before posting,” “is that something to boast about?”

On the other hand, she also received support from her fans. Some posted, “Yoon Eun Hye has been a celebrity since she was a little girl, so she hasn’t been able to use the public transportation like the rest of us. So for her, it makes sense to call something that’s quite insignificant to us valuable,” “Celebrities obviously can’t ride buses, so it’s new for her. It’s not like she wrote anything derogatory,” and “I would be scared too if I had to ride the bus for the first time in ten years.”
