April 19, 2013 by ABS-CBN
Asia’s most popular artists Park Yoo-Chun and Yoon Eun-Hye team up for the very first time for as they play long lost sweethearts in the Filipino-dubbed version of the hit Korean drama of 2012, “Missing You,” premiering this Monday (Apr 22) on ABS-CBN.
Yoo-Chun, who captivated the hearts of Filipinos as Lee Sun-Joon in “Secret Love: Sungkyunkwan Scandal” and as Prince Lee Gak in the recently concluded “Rooftop Prince,” takes on his most dramatic role to date as Detective Julius Han in this top-caliber melodrama that earned him the Excellent Actor in a Mini-Series recognition during the 2012 MBC Drama Awards. He is among the few Korean actors who did back-to-back series in a year and was able to do television projects in three different Korean TV networks namely KBS, SBS, and MBC.
Eun-Hye, on the other, finally returns on Philippine television since she last appeared “Princess Hours” as Janelle and “My Fair Lady” as Hannah. A premier young actress and fashion icon in Korea, Eun-Hye recently won the Hallyu Star of the Year award from the 2012 MBC Drama Awards for her portrayal as Joy Lee in “Missing You.” She was also voted as one of the most bankable and A-lister stars in Korea and also one of the highest paid Korean actress, which is quite an achievement for Eun-Hye considering she is only below 30 years old.
The much-awaited airing of “Missing You,” starring these two Korean superstars, is definitely a summer treat to Koreanovela fans. It tells the compelling story about a man longing to be reunited with his one true love and his undying faith that one day, she will return to him.
It started way back when they were still young and experiencing love for the first time. Julius and Joy are both happy in each other’s arms until one day, Julius is abducted by armed men. Joy, who witnesses the kidnapping, attempts to help Julius and ends up getting abducted as well.
Julius manages to escape and runs away to call for help. But Joy, upon seeing him leave, thinks he has chosen to save his own life and abandoned her.
When Julius returns for her, Joy is nowhere to be found and authorities said she is already dead. Little does Julius know that someone helped Joy escape the kidnappers.
Fourteen years later, Julius would be a homicide detective and still hasn’t given up on finding Joy, hoping that she is still alive. Joy, on the other hand, returns to Korea as Zoe, an accomplished fashion designer with Harry (Yoo Seung-Ho), the young man who saved her life.
As the two cross paths once more, feelings in the past will be awakened. Julius can feel it in his heart that Zoe is the woman he loved way back, but Joy intentionally keeps the truth from her first love to seek revenge for abandoning her during that tragic moment.
How fan can Julius go just to prove that Zoe and Joy are the same person? What will happen when Joy finds out the truth on why Julius ran away when they were kidnapped? Will they give their love a second chance?
“Missing You” marks the return of a Asianovela on ABS-CBN’s primetime line-up since the idol drama “Dream High” aired April last year.
