News are circulating that GMA 7 will be doing a Philippine version of the hit Korean series All About Eve (2000) which will be shown next year.
According to what I’ve read, they have already eyed actresses Iza Calzado and Sunshine Dizon to play as Nicole (Jin Sun Mi) and Erika (Heo Young Mi). It’s still not yet determined who’s playing who though since both actresses have played both the nice and baddie roles.
Iza and Sunshine has been doing soap operas together, the latest of which was Impostora where they played as twins.
On the other hand, Jean Garcia and Eula Valdez, who were last seen together as rivals in Pangako Sa Yo, will be reunited to play as senior reporters in drama, one of which was characterized by Kim Jung Eun (Lovers in Paris).
The last question now is who will be playing Jang Dong Gun’s character Kenneth (Yun Hyong Chul) in the series. Kenneth is the most ideal man in the world: caring, sincere, handsome etc. etc. You name every good trait in a man and that’s him. Even Jang Dong Gun didn’t believe that a man like him exists. hahaha!
The criteria should be:
1. He must be HANDSOME!!!
2. He must be old enough to look good either with Jean Garcia or Eula Valdez (whoever plays Kim Jung Eun’s character) since she has an interest with him initially and they are of the same age (in the Korean drama at least.)
3. He must not look too old for Sunshine or Iza since he will end up with either one of them.
So any actors in mind? I haven’t thought of one yet. Hopefull they will find one to fit the bill.
I do pray they will give justice to this drama. The original version is actually a must-see for every Korean drama fanatic. For someone like me who really, really loves this (it introduced me to the most wonderful friends I have now), I am worried that it will fall short of the original (here i go again.) Maybe I’m just traumatized since am not really liking the way they treated Ako si Kim Sam Soon.
So will you watch this once it’s shown?
