After two years in hiatus, former radio disc jockey and TV host Grace Lee is returning to show business.
“I thought maybe 10 years of my life in the industry was enough,” she said.
“But I prayed about it and then God opened another door for me through Viva Entertainment.”
As content producer of her company Zenith Media Contents, she is excited to have tie-ups with different Korean production teams. She’s already in talks with certain K-pop groups and Korean actors to bring them here for mini concerts and fan meetings. There are also exploratory talks on doing a Filipino-

Her other dream leading men are Jericho Rosales and Empoy.
“I want to do heavy drama that would have audiences crying as they leave the cinemas. You wanna know why? ’Cause I’ve been single for three years now so at least even through films I could release all my sentiments,” she said, laughing.

“But, yes, I believe I am a better person now because of what happened. Things still turned out for the best.
“Those were fun memories. It’s a chapter in my life I would remember fondly.”
