Pinoy Version of My Girl

Television show adaptations seem to be a hot trend in the Philippine television industry lately. The unprecedented success of the Pinoy version of a Mexican telenovela Marimar, propels the big time tv stations to create more remakes. GMA will soon air its version of a successful Korean show, My Name is Kim Sam Soon. ABS-CBN on the other hand, produces a Philippine version of the famous Colombian soap opera, Betty La Fea. I'm quite certain there would be so much more adaptations in the future.

I'd never thought that I'll enjoy watching the newest tv offering from ABS-CBN right now. I am talking about another Pinoy adaptation of the defunct Korean soap opera, My Girl. This stars the bubbly and vibrant, young actress of Chinese descent, Kim Chiu and the Fil-Am young actor, Gerald Anderson. I've watched the first week of My Girl and I must admit that I got hooked. This is a feel good, comedy with a touch of a lovestory. Kim's character as Jasmine is cute and fun. She speaks a little bit of Chinese and Bisaya in this soap. Kim is so lovable and I enjoyed watching her in this show.
