GMA-7 will air the Tagalized version of the hit Korean series, Cinderella Man, starting October 10, 2011 on the network's afternoon block, Dramarama sa Hapon.
Cinderella Man stars the Korean hunk Kwon Sang Woo who is currently seen as the prosecutor in Big Thing, another Koreanovela in the Kapuso network's primetime block. Kwon Sang Woo is also popular for his role as Cholo in the hit Stairway To Heaven which was also shown on GMA-7.
Kwon Sang Woo plays two characters in Cinderella Man – one is that of a wealthy but sick Rodney, and the other is that of a budding businessman and "full-time racketeer" Brian.
In the story, Rodney will ask Brian to pretend as Rodney due to a serious illness. Rodney is an heir to a fashion empire and Brian considers himself even just to pretend as Rodney because it has been his longtime dream to have a name in the fashion industry. Brian will eventually find true love in the person of Seo You-jin played by Im Yoona.
Personally, I hope they put this one on primetime (because I can't watch that much TV during the day). But then, of course, it would be impossible to put two Kwon Sang Woo TV series in one block at the same time.
I guess this is where the recorder would come in handy.
Watch the two character teasers (of Brian and Rodney) after the jump.
