It is also a part of ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida, new lineup of shows for 2009.ABS-CBN will cook another hit Pheonomenal Series Koreanovela Adaptation who 1st Broadcast the Goong in The Philippines


Main Cast
Janelle/Crown Princess - Portrayed by Maja Salvador, Janelle is a very creative and outgoing, normal high school girl. She attends the same school as Gian, the Crown Prince of Philippines. Her grandfather was best friends with the previous King. To honor his friend, the previous King dictated that Janelle is to become the Crown Princess, which means that she is to marry whoever is the Crown Prince at the time of the marriage (Gian) . Although she often seems immature and irritating, she is a kindhearted, innocent, honest person. Often called "Pig" by her younger brother, Janelle marries the prince to save her family from bankruptcy. Her initial reaction to Gian is one of irritation but she falls in love with him in the earlier part of the series, not knowing that he, in return, feels the same way, until the last few episodes. Although she regards Troy only as a friend and cousin-in-law, he falls in love with her.

Gian/Crown Prince - The crown prince, TBA, Gian, is seen as a smug, indifferent, insensitive young man. After getting rejected by his girlfriend when he proposes to her, he decides to go along with his elders' arranged marriage with Janelle. At first, he was irritated by her naivete and enthusiasm, but as he recognizes how genuinely sweet she is, he begins to open his heart to her, and falls in love. Throughout the series, it becomes obvious that inside, he is just a lonely, sensitive, warm and kind young man. He also owns a teddy bear, Alfred, the only thing that he can let his guard down for, which is used as a focal point throughout the series. As his cousin re-enters the picture after being forced out of the country many years earlier, the prince quickly butts head with him, as Troy is a contender not only for the throne, but for the crown princess Janelle's love. Janelle does not realize this until later on in the story.

Troy - TBA plays Troy, Gian's cousin. He returns from a long stay in England with his mother, the widow of the former crown prince. He is the opposite of Gian, he is warm, kindhearted, sweet, romantic, and charismatic -- an instant hit with the girls. Interested in Janelle, their friendship grows to love on his side, while she remains innocently unaware of it until much later. Although the position of the Crown Prince originally belonged to him, it was given to his cousin when Troy's father died in a car accident and his mother was found to have had an affair with his uncle, who she was originally in love with, but she decides to marry his brother, the crown prince, wanting her son to inherit the title of crown prince. Originally uninterested in the throne, Troy decides to follow his mother's wishes and compete with Gian for the throne after falling in love with Janelle. In the end, after realizing that Janelle and Gian truly love each other, and after discovering his mother's affair with the King, he passes up both the chance of being King and having Janelle as a wife.

Monique - Portrayed by Megan Young, Monique is a skilled ballerina. She is beautiful, intelligent, accomplished--basically, perfect in every way possible,but she is also poor. Prince Gian and her ballet instructor paid for her tuition fees at school. In the beginning, she is Gian's girlfriend, and he proposes to her. However, she rejects him, not only because she thinks he is joking, but also because she does not wish to give up her dreams of becoming a star ballerina. When she sees Janelle and Shin's wedding and how Janelle is loved by the people (similar to Diana, Princess of Wales), she regrets her hasty decision, and does everything she can to oust Janelle from her position. Hyo-rin finds ways to draw Shin back to her, including a "chance" meeting in Thailand, but simply ends up hurting herself, resulting in attempting suicide. Later, however, she decides that Gian does truly love Janelle, and she ultimately gives him up and decides to just concentrate on her ballet.

I have a feeling that if this is true that Geoff Eigenmann will be the lead guy. I think he'll be the guy because they are making him and Maja as a loveteam. I do think though that Jake Cuenca will fit the role better.

Love Maja and I think she'll do fine:)!

another hater. Do you think Korea has a royal family? Obviously you haven't seen the original drama.

Sorry, but I don't think this would be good.

To say the truth, I thought that Goong wasn't that good of a drama to me. It was one of my firsts, but as I've watched more dramas that have beautiful plots ((Byakuyako, well not beautiful, more like... hm... I cant find the word)), I've decided that Goong was just another romantic comedy flick. ((With of course, the beautiful YEH, and hottie Ji Hoon. ))

Therefore, I'm not really looking forward to this.
Remakes don't usually interest me, except for BBF.
