Winter Sonata returns to Philippine TV on ABS-CBN

Winter Sonata returns to Philippine TV on ABS-CBN

Endless Love 2: Winter Sonata returns to Philippine TV but on ABS-CBN this time. Considered one of the most successful Korean dramas of all time (if not the most), the phenomenal hit series first aired in the country on GMA7 in 2003.

It's interesting if ABS-CBN would retain the names that popularized the characters of Janice and Jun.

Watch the ABS-CBN teaser of Winter Sonata


Synopsis:

Jun aka Joon Sang (Bae Yong Joon) is the new student at a high school. He came to town in search for his biological father. Janice aka Yoo Jin (Choi Ji Woo) and Raymond aka Sang Hyuk (Park Yong Ha) were best friends since they were little kids but Sang Hyuk wants to be more than just her friend.

But Yoo Jin falls for the mysterious Joon Sang instead and opens his heart up. Just as their love was starting to grow, Joon Sang comes to the startling realization that his dad is not Sang Hyuk's dad, but is Yoo Jin's dad


Joon Sang ends up in a car accident, going to meet Yoo Jin on New Year's Eve. Yoo Jin is devastated to lose her first and only love. 10 years later... Yoo Jin is engaged to Sang Hyuk.

Then one day, she sees someone who looks exactly like Joon Sang. His name is Min Hyung and he is going out with Charlene aka Chae Lin (Park Sol Mi), her high school classmate who liked Joon Sang.

Yoo Jin falls into confusion and doesn't know what she feels for who anymore. But she starts another sad love story with Min Hyung.

Spotted: Angel Locsin lifts weight. What about her spine? OMG!

Spotted: Angel Locsin lifts weight. What about her spine? OMG!

"Not your typical girls."

This was the caption that went with the picture posted by Instagram user @betinabordeos which shows a group of ladies doing what men usually do - powerlifting! One of them is kapamilya actress Angel Locsin.

We know Angel is doing Darna on the big screen in 2015 and that she needs to undergo training to keep her fit but didn't expect weightlifting will be one of those. It's just a guy's thing!

We're kinda shocked as Angel had problems with her spine. Not long ago when the actress underwent a chiropractic treatment in one clinic in Manila to treat her aching back and neck.

Angel Locsin sends Kim Chiu flowers for winning Best Actress plum

Angel Locsin sends Kim Chiu flowers for winning Best Actress plum

The results of the recently held Star Awards for TV is being clouded with controversy again.

The Philippine Move Press Club, the organization responsible for the annual event, is once again being accused of favoring artists in exchange of hefty amount of money? Hmm...

This year's result is no different. According to some reports, Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real lead actor Dingdong Dantes and Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon lead actress Bea Alonzo were allegedly the real winners for Best Actor and Best Actress respectively but the results were changed due to lobbying of some influential people.

Hence, Coco Martin and Kim Chiu were declared winners.

But for Kim, she is only but thankful and grateful for the recognition given to her this year. Proof of this is her lengthy post on her Instagram account @chinitaprincess:

Kim Chiu thanks everyone for her Best Actress award


Angel Locsin, whose name was predicted by many to emerge the winner since the nominees list was released, on the other hand, sent Kim a bouquet of flowers as her way of congratulating the Ikaw Lamang actress. Kim posted it on her Instagram account

Angel Locsin congratulates Kim Chiu for winning Best Actress

"Thank you @therealangellocsin for this beautiful flowers! such a sweet surprise salamat!"

Tension on Vhong Navarro's almost encounter with Cedric Lee at Vice Ganda's event

Tension on Vhong Navarro's almost encounter with Cedric Lee at Vice Ganda's event

The group of It's Showtime host Vhong Navarro almost had an encounter with Cedric at the opening of Vice Ganda's new business in Bonifacio Global City.

According to a Facebook post of Mr. Tony Calvento, Vice Ganda invited Navarro in the inauguration night of The Valkerie Palace in BGC where he's a part owner. Apparently, the other owner happened to be a friend of Cedric Lee who arrived at the party despite not being invited.

There was nothing untoward incident that happened. Here's Mr. Calvento's full Facebook post.

"Vice Ganda invited Vhong Navarro in the inaguration night of The Valkerie Palace at the Bonifacio Global City.
Cedric Lee was not in the guest list so Vhong acceded to Vice Ganda's invitation. He was with two companions.
Apparently, Cedric's friend is one of the owners of the club which Vice is also an investor.
There were no untoward incident and it is not true that Cedric tried to sit on the Showtime table where Vice, Vhong, Billy and the rest were.
He did not even try to talk to Vice while Vhong was there.
To avoid any untoward incident, Vhong and the rest of the Showtime group decided to leave the place.
Cedric did not talk to Vhong nor whisper anything to his ears as gossips have it.
Vice escorted Vhong to his car and the rest of the group. Vhong was with some security men.
Vhong did not know anything more about what happened after they left.
This narration came straight from Vhong Navarro. Nothing added nor taken away.
Will try to gather more details."

In connection with Vhong's ongoing court battler against Lee, Calvento said that Vhong's legal team have asked the Court for Issuance of a Hold Departure Order against the group of Cedric Lee.

"Kung pagbabasehan ang sago ng Clerk of Court na kahilingan ni Atty Alma Mallonga na sola marring bigyan ng kopya ng HDO, ibig sabihin nito naglabas nga ang korte ng HDO at naipamahagi na ito sa mga kinauukulan.", Calvento said in his post

"Malamang sa Pinas magpapasko ang lahat ng mga akusado at hindi papayagan makaalis para makapunta sa ibang bansa", he added.

Angel Locsin says Iñigo Pascual is a better singer than his father Piolo?

Angel Locsin returns to It's Showtime

Angel Locsin returned to ABS-CBN's noontime show It's Showtime yesterday, November 11 after a few days of absence. The actress (now: /tv host) said she missed the show and the madlang pipol.

And as a welcome gesture, Angel danced the popular Beyonce move from her hit song Crazy In Love which the actress somehow made as her trademark in the show.

What made us smile was when Angel greeted Iñigo Pascual and shared that he was only a kid when she last saw him in the US.

Angel Locsin says Iñigo Pascual is a better singer than his father Piolo?

Angel and Iñigo had formed a bond together when the actress visited the US for Love Me Again's premiere. Love Me Again is the follow-up project of Angel and Piolo Pacual (Iñigo's father) after their successful airing of their ABS-CBN fantaserye Lobo.

"Iñigo, bata as in bagets ka pa noong huling nakita kita sa Amerika", Angel greeted Iñigo to which the latter replied with "Opo". Anne Curtis noticed how the 17-year old son of Piolo addressed Angel with "opo" and laughed at it.

Watch the video


"Opo talaga. Ganiyan po talaga... tiyahin. Wala tayong magagawa diyan eh.", Angel replied and bounced back, teased Iñigo that he's a better singer than his dad Piolo.

Watch Iñigo sing Buko with Sofia Andres

OMG! Sam Milby may not be invited to perform at ICON concert of Yeng Constantino, Gloc 9, and Rico Blanco but he made all the ladies (and ladies at heart) go scream for KILIG when his face was flashed during Yeng's rendition of her hit song Chinito.

It was so spontaneous that even Sam, who was seated in the audience, was caught surprised seeing his face flashed at big screen and it was that moment when he smiled and made the girls scream. OMG!

Carla Abellana denies snubbing Marian Rivera

Carla Abellana denied the snubbing incident with Marian Rivera during the latter's guest apperance in GMA7's family sticom a few weeks ago.

In the press conference held yesterday November 19 for Regal Films' official entry to the 2014 Metro Manila Film Festival, "Shake, Rattle, a& Roll XV", Carla denied there was such incident that happened on the set of Ismol Family. The buzz came out after Marian Rivera guested on the show for one episode.

“Nagbatian kami. As soon she arrived, nagbeso ganyan, winelcome namin sa Ismol Family.", Carla explained. “Wala lang kaming eksena together. Pagdating niya sa set, nagbatian kaming lahat.”, she added.

But when asked if she was invited by Dingdong Dantes' fiancee to any of her bridal showers, the actress said that there will be no problem if ever she gets invited.

But what her next statement puzzled us.

“Naka-apat o limang bridal shower na ba? Pero wala pa akong napunta­hang bridal shower, kundi ‘yung sa ka­patid ko pa lang,”

Looks like she's waiting for an invitation. Is she? Just asking...

Trending Photo: Bea Alonzo, put in a bad light after giving in to a fan's photo opp request

Kapamilya actress Bea Alonzo is currently put under fire after a photo of her with a fan was posted on Instagram. The photo which put the actress in a bad light was posted by the daughter of a fan (face blurred) who asked for a photo during a chance encounter with the actress earlier this week.

According to the Instagram user, her parents are fans of Alonzo since she started her showbiz career but got disappointed to the character that the actress showed to them before and after the photo-taking session. Further, her dad said that that would be the last time they would ever approach the actress for a photo opp.


The screenshot of the post was first uploaded in showbiz blogsite FashionPulis and from there, the actress earned tirades and criticisms from netizens.

Few commenters defended Zanjoe Marudo's girlfriend like she could have been tired or sleepless during that time but others insisted with their not so good comments about the actress. OUCH!

According to some websites, a study in Smell and Taste Center in Chicago found that the smell of pizza can actually raise the sex drive in men.

Neurologist Alan Hirsch measured the effects of aromas on penile blood flow and found that American men responded best to doughnuts, pizza, popcorn and strawberries. Men, he concluded, are turned on by smells that evoke the security and pleasure of childhood.

Although the ingredients of pizza like cheese and mushroom and the minerals that it contains play vital role to increase one's sex drive, it's the smell of food rather than its constituent parts that gets men in the mood.

So that's the reason why Bianca is the only one eating a slice of pizza while JC shows a smirk on his face.
