Kim Chiu and RK Bagatsing Fight Over Custody of the Their Child on "Ipaglaban Mo" Anniversary Episode Shot in Korea


Kapamilya stars Kim Chiu and RK Bagatsing headed to South Korea to shoot the special anniversary episode of the hit legal drama “Ipaglaban Mo,” which airs this Saturday (June 16), featuring the case of ex-lovers fighting over their child’s custody.

Hazel (Kim) and Alvin (RK) are overseas Filipino workers in South Korea. They are a picture of happiness and love, with Alvin even promising to marry Hazel after they have saved enough money.

Things turn sour, however, when Hazel finds out that Alvin has been cheating on her.

After Alvin gets deported back to the Philippines because of a lapsed working visa, Hazel learns she is pregnant with his child. With no one else to turn to, she asks Alvin to take care of their child, with a promise to return for the kid.

Time passes by and Hazel, who is now married to Korean national Ji-hoo (Kyumin Moon), is ready to take her child back under her care. Unfortunately, Alvin refuses and resorts to legal measures to fight for the child’s custody.

Will Hazel ever get her child back? Whose side will the court take?

 

“Ipaglaban Mo” has been educating viewers about their rights for four years now since it started airing on ABS-CBN. The show even went out of its way of offering free legal advice to people every week via ABS-CBN’s Tulong Center.

Aside from the fourth year on air of its relaunch on ABS-CBN, “Ipaglaban Mo” also celebrates its 30th year as the longest-running legal drama on Philippine television.

Don’t miss the “Korea” episode of “Ipaglaban Mo,” directed by Raymund Ocampo, this Saturday (June 16) after “It’s Showtime” on ABS-CBN.

All three families attended the big reveal, visibly delighted by their portraits.




In his Instagram post after the event, Dingdong Dantes wrote, “Many thanks to Bryn Imagire... [S]he made us her own interpretation of a Dantes Incredibles family portrait! What an honor and privilege!



 
For his part, Doug Kramer shared, “What an honor it was to be one of the 3 families that Ms Bryn Imagire sketched through the #Incredibles2 theme here in the Philippines!

About INCREDIBLES 2

In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.

Written and directed by Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles,” “Tomorrowland”) and Nicole Grindle (“Sanjay’s Super Team” short, “Toy Story 3” associate producer), Disney•Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” busts into theaters on June 14, 2018.

GMA-7 Airs the First Lakorn on Philippine TV Entitles “You’re My Destiny”


As part of its 15th anniversary celebration, GMA The Heart of Asia introduces 'Lakorn' on Philippine TV, the Thailand counterpart to Filipino teleseryes. With the Network's continued search for different contents from all around the world, they are bringing a new culture that the Filipinos will truly love.

GMA First Vice President for Program Management Joey R. Abacan is driven to deliver content that does not limit the viewers' entertainment. "This is why we are called the Heart of Asia. We believe that the viewing preference of our audience is not only limited to the local setting, so we want to bring them the world. Now, ang gusto nga namin, 'di lang tayo makilala as the Heart of Asia but hopefully, as the Heart of the World."
The GMA executive also believes in the power of 'You're My Destiny' as a perfect vehicle to introduce Lakorn. "It has the elements of drama, love, laughter and entertainment that is the trademark of what our viewers love to watch," Abacan explains.

As the first Lakorn on Philippine TV, 'You're My Destiny' will feature the intertwined lives of Paolo (Wisetkaew Sukrit), an heir to a big consumer company; Martina (Esther Supreeleela), a law firm clerk who is usually taken advantage of at work; Cathy (Wecks Lanlalin), Paolo's ballerina girlfriend; and Rafa (Tre Porapat Srikajorn), an orphan who worked hard to become famous and find his long lost sister.

Martina and Paolo find themselves in a compromising situation after a blurry night, and months later they find out that she is pregnant. With the pressure of producing an heir, will Paolo turn his back on Cathy and answer to his responsibility as a father? Meanwhile Martina also meets Rafa, and they become each other's confidante. Will this newfound friendship help their personal struggles?

Witness the representation of Thai culture in 'You're My Destiny,' beginning June 4, after Inday Will Always Love You on GMA Telebabad.
