Friday, March 28, 2008
As a sign of world-class quality, GMA-7's defunct teen show Boys Nxt Door will be aired on 8TV in Malaysia and will be the first-ever Filipino drama to be aired in South Korea.
Nakatanggap kami ng written report na nabili ng 8TV ng Malaysia at KBS Drama ng South Korea ang rights to air the Jun Lana teen show starring Marky Cielo, Glaiza de Castro, Jennica Garcia, and the StarStruck 4 teens Mart Escudero, Aljur Abrenica, Kris Bernal, Rich Asuncion, Kiko Juinio, and Jessie Corcuera.
Boys Nxt Door is scheduled to air in April both in Malaysia and South Korea. It will be dubbed in Malay for the Malaysian version at may English subtitle naman for the Korean version.

Kung naibenta ng Televisa—ang Mexican network na siyang may gawa ng original Marimar starring Thalia—ang rights ng Marimar sa GMA-7, nabalitaan naming binili naman ng Televisa ang telecast right ng isang Kapuso soap, ang Mga Mata Ni Anghelita.
Inaayos na lang ang kasunduang magaganap between Televisa and the original creator of the radio show turned primetime soap of GMA-7 na si Ricardo Feliciano, but we heard all system go na for its telecast sa Mexico.
Binili ang Mga Mata Ni Anghelita dahil sa isang important factor—its religious theme. Historically, napakalaki ng ugnayang Philippines at Mexico dahil ito ang dalawa sa mga naunang bansang nasakop ng Spain in the 16th century kaya halos magkapareho ang religious practices and traditions ng mga Pilipino at Mexicano.
Hinahanap na raw ang lahat ng raw materials ng nasabing soap—all 70 episodes of it—para malapatan ng tamang subtitling at Mexican dubbing pati na rin sa additional special effects.
Mga Mata Ni Anghelita began its telecast in GMA-7 primetime block last July 2007 as part of the Kapuso network's 57th anniversary offering.
It starred Krystal Reyes in the title role together with Sheryl Cruz, Carmina Villarroel, Ms. Celia Rodriguez , Tonton Gutierrez, Paolo Contis, Isabel Oli, and Marvin Agustin as the Guardian Angel Gabriel. May special participation din si Lucy Torres-Gomez as the Virgin Mary. This was from the direction of Khryss Adalia and Gil Tejada.
I don't know about world-class the writer is referring to since I didn't watch this soap. Hopefully it would pave the way for more Filipino programs to be shown in Korea and Mexico. We are reversing the flow - that's good news!
