Top rating Korean Drama “My Love From The Star” captured the heart of the Filipino viewers. They like it so much that a TV network in the Philippines, GMA-7, decided to make a Filipino adaptation of the said TV series.
The question now is, who will play the lead roles Cheon Song-yi (originally played by Jun Ji Hyun) and Do Min-joon (originally played by Kim Soo Hyun). In the Philippine TV, the names of the lead characters were changed into Matteo Do and Steffi Cheon.
Rumor has it that Alden Richards will play the role of Matteo Do. The name of a Korean guy who rose to fame after winning Eat Bulaga’s My Foreignoy segment, Richard Hwan, also surfaced to get the coveted role since he has striking similarity to Kim Soo Hyun, but it looks like Alden Richards is still the best choice for this role.
For the role of Steffi Cheon, several names have been mentioned. If there’s Alden Richards, of course, there’s Yaya Dub or better known as Maine Mendoza. AlDUb Fans even petitioned to pair Alden with Maine in this TV series. Marian Rivera is also one of the names mentioned for this role. However, GMA 7 is still offering this to Jennylyn Mercardo as she is the primary choice for this role. The actress is still yet to confirm this but AlDub fans may not like this idea.
Let’s just wait for further news with regards to the development of the casting. I am sure fans are so excited to see a Filipino version of this well loved K-drama.
