The first-ever Filipino-Korean romantic comedy series My Korean Jagiya top-billed by Heart Evangelista and Alexander Lee concludes its run with a heart-warming finale episode this Friday, January 12 on GMA Telebabad.
Without a doubt, the program is a hit among Kapuso viewers and netizens who followed the love story of the Korean superstar Kim Jun Ho played by Alexander and the hopelessly romantic K-Drama Pinay fan girl Gia played by Heart.
K-Drama fans who religiously watch the show will surely miss the kilig-filled scenes of Jun Ho and Gia. Both Heart and Alexander expressed their gratitude to everyone who supported the series since day one.
Heart said she’s glad that people loved her character, Gia, as much as she did.
“To be honest, after a really, really long time, it’s the first time that I felt that people appreciated me, and my efforts. I’m so thankful na na-appreciate niyo and naipakita ko rin ang love ko for my job. To the show, to the staff and to GMA, I just want to put it on record, I fell in love with my work again because of this show. Binusog niyo ako ng bonggang bongga. Thank you to the fans, to everyone, to the writers, and thank you even to the people that pushed me to do my best and it worked,” says Heart.
Alexander, on the other hand, said he has learned many things while doing the soap which has brought laughter and good vibes to the TV viewers.
“There are too many things I learned from the shows ranging from Filipino culture, working experience, to reflection on life. I think the most important thing I learned this time is also what Jun Ho learnt: Fame and popularity do not make you happy; it’s the loved ones around you that is more important and could bring you true happiness,” says Alexander.
Meanwhile, director Mark Reyes shared he definitely enjoyed doing the soap and he will miss working with everyone on set most especially Heart and Alexander.
“This is my 3rd project with Heart. It’s always a joy to work with her. She’s grown so much as an actress and has become more beautiful. Xander and the rest of the Korean cast are the ones I will truly miss. They’ve become family almost immediately. And I think Xander is an underrated Korean artist that I will look forward to working with again. Please allow me to thank you to all the Kapuso Jagiyas for watching us until the very end. Gomawo!”
As the series ends, will Jun Ho and Gia’s romance have a happy ending?
