According to rumors, Mark Anthony Fernandez will be playing the role of Kenneth (Hyong Chul) in the All About Eve Filipino remake.  He also appeared in the Philippine remake of My Name is Kim Sam Soon as Cyrus (Hyun Jin Hun portrayed by Hyun Bin.)

This role was originally portrayed by Korea’s superstar and now UN World Food Program Ambassador Jang Dong Gun.

I am not really too keen with Mark Anthony as Kenneth. He looks young to be an executive for a television network (unless the writers change it) and he does not suit Iza Calzado who will be playing Nicole (Sun Mi).  I don’t know now how this pairing will turn out.   Mark Anthony has been previously paired with Sunshine Dizon who is also casted as Erika (Young Mi.)  If I were to think of another actor to act as Kenneth, it would be Alfred Vargas.

Aside from looking like Jang Dong Gun in some of his pictures, I think Alfred Vargas complements Iza Calzado.   His posture and overall aura makes him fit for this role.  Too bad he was not chosen.

Let’s wait and see who will be chosen as Warren (Woo Jin), Erika’s boyfriend.
