Headlined by Heart Evangelista, the series follows the story of Gia, a grade school tutor and a hopeless romantic who is often teased that she is next in their family to become an old maid. She is also a self-confessed K-drama fan girl determined to meet her long-time crush, Korean superstar Kim Jun Ho.

But Kim Jun Ho--portrayed by Korean actor and former member of K-pop group U-KISS, Alexander Lee--has mysteriously fallen off the radar and stepped out of the limelight at the height of his career.

An unfortunate incident brings the two of them together and they eventually become friends. But for Gia, Jun Ho will always mean something more. Are some dreams just too good to be true?

“We really need to watch something that will make us feel happy, pampalipas-oras because a lot of people are at home. And at the same time, I’m happy because what we worked hard for and what we enjoyed doing before, we can watch and experience again. It’s so exciting,” Heart says of the rerun of My Korean Jagiya,

Alexander affirmed her sentiments and added that the series could bring a smile to people’s faces, “I believe that this is the perfect time to watch My Korean Jagiya again!” he said. “Watching it again could definitely put a smile on people’s faces and perhaps give them some comfort, happiness, and definitely some kilig too. Hope everyone could stay safe at home and enjoy MKJ again.”

Also starring in the series are Janice De Belen, Ricky Davao, Iya Villania-Arellano, Edgar Allan Guzman, and Valeen Montenegro; with the special participation of Korean stars David Kim, Michelle Oh, and Jerry Lee.

Joining them as well are Frances Makil Ignacio, Myke Solomon, Jinri Park, Divine Aucina, and Khane Dela Cruz.

Award-winning director Mark Reyes helms this ground-breaking series.

“My Korean Jagiya” was partly shot in some of South Korea’s most scenic spots that are often used in famous K-dramas including Nami Island, Namsan Park, Love Padlocks at N Seoul Tower, and Daejanggeum Park.

Catch My Korean Jagiya tonight after Descendants of the Sun: The Philippine Adaptation on GMA Telebabad.
