Koreanovelas “Love Rain” and “Absolute Boyfriend” premieres on ABS-CBN this Monday!

ABS-CBN doubles the romance and doubles the sought-after Korean stars to watch every weekday as the country’s first and true home of Asianovelas premieres the romantic drama “Love Rain” and romantic comedy “Absolute Boyfriend” beginning Monday (June 24).

Asia’s drama prince Jang Geun Suk and one of Korea’s most influential entertainers, Yoona of phenomenal Kpop girl group Girls Generation, team up and play lovers in two different times in “Love Rain,” which airs at 10 AM.

Ian Seo (Geung Suk) and Judy Kim (Yoona) went to college together back in the 1970s and then fell in love. Unfortunately, their love wasn’t meant to be and they needed to part ways.

But love found its way back to them through their children as Ian’s son Jun Seo (Geung Suk) meets and falls in love with Judy’s daughter, Hannah Kim. Will Ian and Judy approve of their son’s and daughter’s romance? Can Jun and Hannah have their happily-ever-after ending unlike their parents?


Meanwhile, Korean sweetheart Koo Hye-Sun or more popularly known as Jan Di of “Boys Over Flowers,” and Taiwanese hearrthrob Jiro Wang of “Hana Kimi” return to Philippine television via the romantic comedy about a lonely single girl who falls in love with a hot, hunky robot in “Absolute Boyfriend,” which airs at 5PM.

Alice (Hye-Sun) never had a boyfriend and has yet to fall in love.  One day she returns a lost cellphone to a strange salesman and she good-naturedly tells him to give her a boyfriend as a reward.

True enough, the salesman gives her a perfect love in the form of a customizable robot named Henry. Unfortunately, Alice misses one tiny detail—to return the robot after the 48-hour trial period.

Now, Alice is left with no choice but to work hard to pay for Henry. But as she spends more time with the robot, she finds herself slowly falling in love with it. Can she stop herself from falling for Henry? Will a real man come her way and save her from feeling for a robot?

Watch “Love Rain,” 10 AM after “Naruto,” and “Absolute Boyfriend,” 5 PM, after “Pinoy True Stories” premiering this Monday (June 24) only on the first and true home of Asianovelas, ABS-CBN.

“The Voice of the Philippines” premieres this Saturday!

The long wait is over and the country’s best voices will finally be heard as ABS-CBN premieres the most anticipated singing-reality competition on Philippine television, “The Voice of the Philippines,” this coming Saturday (June 15).

The Voice Ph

The show, hosted by ultimate multimedia star Toni Gonzaga, kicks off the competition with its talked about and unique Blind Auditions wherein coaches Apl de Ap, Sarah Geronimo, Bamboo, and Ms. Lea Salonga will select the artists they want to mentor just by listening to the aspirant’s singing voice. Each coach must pick 12 artists for their respective teams who will advance to the next rounds of competition— the Battle Rounds and the Live Shows.

When ABS-CBN said in early 2013 that it was going to bring the local adaptation of the worldwide hit format, the announcement was met with high expectations. This is because the Philippines is known for producing excellent singers, with most Filipinos fond of either singing at KTV bars or joining singing competitions. Even Philibert Braat, international consultant for franchise owner TALPA, acknowledged this. “The world knows that Filipinos are the best singers in the world so I think the country really deserves ‘The Voice of the Philippines.’ With the lineup of coaches that the show has, it’s going to be of international standards,” said Braat.

Filipinos across the globe have expressed excitement for “The Voice of the Philippines” especially in the online world where the show is being constantly talked about on various social networking sites and where fans are already rooting for their respective coaches. The show’s primer “Mic Test: The Voice of the Philippines Primer” also made it to the top trending topics on micro-blogging site Twitter when it aired last Sunday (June 9).

Fans will be surely raving more once they watch the pilot telecast this Saturday (June 15) when the coaches get to hear the voices of the aspirants. Some of those to watch for include a rakista dad who wants to change his life, a fresh college graduate with a talent for singing, a former band vocalist who wants to step into spotlight, a Fil-Am working student who wants to pursue a recording career, plus a balut vendor, a taxi driver, and a belt vendor who all have temporarily set their jobs aside to become singers.
Who among them will motivate the coaches to push the red button and accept them? Who among the coaches will complete the team lineup first? Who among the artists made coach Sarah Geronimo cry?

“The Voice” is a unique singing competition where auditions are based solely on vocal ability. It first started in Netherlands in 2010 and in a span of three years, has been localized in more than 40 countries worldwide including the more popular US version where Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton, Shakira, and Usher sat in the iconic red swiveling chairs as celebrity coaches. It is open to artists aged 16 and above with pure singing talent and with or without professional experience.

Also joining host Toni as “V reporters” of the “The Voice of the Philippines” are Robi Domingo and Alex Gonzaga who will give the various updates and sidelights of the show.

Don’t miss “The Voice of the Philippines” premiering this Saturday (June 15), 9 PM, and on Sunday (June 16), 8:15 PM on ABS-CBN.
