Kapuso talents Heart Evangelista and Iya Villania are in Seoul, South Korea filming key scenes for the series “My Korean Jagiya.”
Heart has been sharing photos of her Korean stay on Instagram, one of which was taken on Namsan Park.
The place is familiar to Filipinos as it is where “Boys Over Flowers’“ Goo Jun Pyo (Lee Min Ho) and Geum Jan Di (Ku Hye Sun) had their first date.
Heart also visited the Namsan Seoul Tower, the place where Sim Cheong (Jun Ji Hyun) and Heo Joon Jae (Lee Min Ho) were supposed to meet on the series “Legend Of The Blue Sea.”
Then the 32-year-old actress shared another photo of her cycling in the middle of Namiseom Island.
She captioned the picture: “Playing in between takes.”
Heart also showed followers a glimpse of their shooting location and them wearing the traditional Korean dress, Hanbook.
She said the location is where the 2003 Korean television series “Jewel In The Palace” was filmed.
“Ang galing, the first Filipinos to shoot here, sobrang accurate ng palace na ‘to its not the real palace pero ito ’yung pinaka set,” she related.
Heart also posted a series of videos of her together with Iya roaming Myeongdong.
Iya, on her part, shared on Instagram some Korean food she tried there like the traditional honey cream and croissant taiyaki.
“My Korean Jagiya,” directed by Mark A. Reyes, is the first GMA show to be filmed in Seoul.
It will reportedly feature several South Korean actors who remain unnamed as of this writing.
Apart from Heart and Iya, confirmed to be part of the cast are Edgar Allan Guzman, Jinri Park, Ricky Davao, Janice de Belen and Valeen Montenegro.
“Jagiya” is Korean term of endearment used by couples.
