Indeed, ABS-CBN is the first and true home of Asianovelas: from Meteor Garden (Taiwan) to He’s Beautiful (Korea). But remember, they first introduced popular Taiwanese artists like F4 and Fahrenheit. The latest Taiwanese stars who visited Philippines were Wu Chun and Calvin Chen from Fahrenheit to promote last 2 weeks of their drama Romantic Princess last July 2008.
It’s been more than a year since ABS-CBN aired Miss No Good, a Taiwanese idol drama starring Rainie Yang and Wilber Pan. There’s a new Taiwanese series in Kapamilya station to watch out for starting on Monday. The title is Down With Love. The main cast of this drama is Jerry Yan and Ella Chen.
You had seen Jerry Yan on ABS-CBN in Asian dramas Meteor Garden as Dao Ming Si and in Hot Shot as Cody back in 2003 and 2009 respectively. He plays the role of a sharp-tongued lawyer who is good in divorce and inheritance lawsuits. His brother died in an accident and got no choice but to take care of his brother’s two children. Every nanny he hires for the kids is either scared taking care of the children or ends up falling inove with him. Until he found the right nanny through his secretary.
On the other hand, Ella Chen is from the Taiwanese girl group S.H.E. and more popularly known as “Joey” in ABS-CBN hit Asianovela Hana Kimi. In her latest drama Down With Love, she played the role of a tomboyish nanny and assured by her sister which happens to be Jerry’s secretary, that she will not fall inlove with him because she don’t like men but eventually fall inlove with each other.
Other cast members of this series include Kelly Huang, Michael Zhang, Chen Zi Han, Ji Xin Ling, Xiao Xiao Bin, Amanda Zhou, Gu Bao Ming, Yan Yi En, and more.
I’m sure all Filipino fans of SHE and F4 plus avid viewers Taiwanese and Asian dramas wouldn’t miss to watch new Asianovela offering of ABS-CBN this year. Down With Love will start on Monday, 25 October, 5:30pm replacing He’s Beautiful on ABS-CBN.
