After months of anticipation, GMA Network has announced that Alexander Lee is Heart Evangelista’s leading man in My Korean Jagiya.
Alexander is a professional actor in Korea and former member of the boy band U-Kiss. He bagged the coveted role of Jun Ho in My Korean Jagiya which is the first and original Kapuso series partly shot in Seoul, South Korea. Aside from him, several Korean actors will also play important roles in the primetime soap.
The former K-Pop sensation said he is very excited on his latest project with GMA 7, “I’m really glad to finally work with GMA again after so many years. I remember the last time was when U-Kiss performed in Walang Tulugan with the Master Showman and Party Pilipinas. I had really good memories with GMA because they were very kind, friendly and caring.”
Alexander said he did not think twice about accepting the role because he is thrilled to return to the country and to finally work with Heart.
“First, when I heard the word “GMA”, I was already confident that it would be a good project. Afterwards, knowing that Heart Evangelista would be in it, it won my heart completely! Of course, it was a tough decision to give up all my current work here in Korea for this project, but I’m definitely sure it will be worth it. After seeing the project proposal, I was really excited because it is very meaningful. I personally really love the cultural exchange between the Philippines and Korea. It would be a never-before-seen project so I decided to join,” said Alexander.
The production team of My Korean Jagiya recently went to Seoul to tape important scenes for the drama series.
Heart, meanwhile, revealed that working with Alexander is a breeze, “He is so easy to work with and as time goes by, we are more comfortable with each other. He is really a good actor. And I’m so excited for everybody to get to know him and see the show.”
Completing the all-star cast of My Korean Jagiya are Janice de Belen, Ricky Davao, Iya Villania, Edgar Allan Guzman, Valeen Montenegro, Frances Makil, Jinri Park, Myke Salomon.
Under the helm of award-winning director Mark Reyes, catch Alexander and Heart in My Korean Jagiya soon on GMA’s flagship international channel, GMA Pinoy TV. (30)
