Lead stars of GMA-7’s My Husband’s Lover – the country’s most talked about primetime series today – Dennis Trillo and Carla Abellana, and Kapuso actress Michelle Madrigal are Vietnam-bound this July 18 to attend Vietnam Today TV’s 5th Anniversary Celebration.
A member of Vietnam’s Joint Media Corporation (IMC), Today TV is one of the first Vietnamese TV stations to air Filipino drama series like Marimar, Stairway to Heaven, Beauty Queen, The Good Daughter and Kung Aagawin Mo Ang Langit (Losing Heaven). These dramas quickly became a hit among Vietnamese viewers paving the way for the airing of more Filipino dramas on Vietnam TV.
Dennis, Carla and Michelle have all appeared in several GMA dramas that have gained a huge following in Vietnam namely Kung Aagawin Mo Ang Langit (Losing Heaven) for Carla, Sinner or Saint and Legacy for Dennis, and First Time, Kung Aagawin Mo Ang Langit (Losing Heaven) and Faithfully for Michelle. Aside from gracing Today TV’s anniversary celebration, they will also give their Vietnamese fans the chance to see them up close in the grand fans day arranged for them by the former.
Commenting on the warm reception for Kapuso dramas by Vietnamese viewers, Ms. Roxanne Barcelona – Vice President for GMA Worldwide, Inc. (GWI) the program syndication and acquisition arm of GMA Network said that “interest for Kapuso dramas has never been as strong as it has been this year.”
As such, the rest of 2013 will see more GMA dramas on Today TV with deals for the launch of Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga (It Might Be You), Makapiling Kang Muli (Together Again), Dyesebel, Luna Blanca, One True Love and Temptation of Wife already in place.
Barcelona continues, “We look forward to bringing more of our programs and artists not only to Vietnam but to other countries within and beyond Asia. As we now have a better understanding of our international audience, we are confident that our new line-up will appeal to them as much, if not more than what we offered them in the past.”
