"La Promesa" Capitulo 2: How To Silently Show A Teleserye

A sign that it was barely publicized, it is only now that the Peruvians have started arriving to the blog searching for "La Promesa serie filipina". For the last two days, the Peruvians have been the biggest readers of this blog. It started when the Latin American distributor released a few press releases   and posted a few episodes (at least 3) on Youtube five days ago. The dearth of publicity around the showing of the teleserye on September 22 from the usual outlets that release publicity materials from the Panamericana station of Peru was puzzling.

It should be remembered that when the first teaser of the teleserye was first shown just after the end of showing of  Pinoy teleserye "Puentes de amor" a few months ago, the alleged "avid fans" of the perennially low-rating South Korean dramas protested and for strange reason, bashed Pinoy teleseryes. The Peruvian authorities probably are still not aware of the usual modus operandi of the alleged South Korean "fans" in other countries where they also have low-ratings, like the Philippines, where they hold manufactured noise to pretend a  fandom to exert pressure. My professor friend suspected the usual Panamericana outlets were subsequently stymied in publicizing "La Promesa" online because they apparently avoided the noisy pseudo-trolls. The initial copious publicity became scarce, especially that the teleserye's showing  had to be delayed because of the slow dubbing into Spanish. When it was time to show, I myself only became aware of its showing not from the usual publicity outlets used by the station but from a passing comment in a Peruvian forum.

There is another "La Promesa" series from Colombia, so that if one googles the title of the series, the one from Colombia is often returned. One has to emphasize it was the "serie filipina".

    2. Parang GMA ang Panamericana... kelangan nila ang suhol ng mga Koreano para magpatuloy kasi di sapat ang kita

  2. Yong mga replacement sa mga nasusunog na Samsung Note 7, nagsusunugan pa rin. Laos na talaga ang mga Koreano... pero trying hard pa rin sila. Worse, they still have the same face lol

  3. Pina-retire na nila si Ban Ki Moon kasi nao-obvious ang talagang itsura ng mga Koreano... Dapat daw ma-Plastic Surgery ang lahat ng public official nila para di sila pagtawanan kasi mahilig sila magkunwari na artistahin din kahit di naman talaga

  4. SAMSON OPTION ang tawag...temporary self-suicide for a bigger goal... Hilahin lahat ang Asian sa ibaba na kung saan permanente ang mga Koreans for the past decade... pero malamang sila pa rin ang matira dahil matagal na sila doon. Minsan, napalabas din ang Japanese, Chinese at Indian teleserye pero maski nasa ilalim lagi ang mga kdramas, natira pa rin sila kasi marami na silang inside deals para manatili roon.

    1. I guess as long as the Koreans don't admit to themselves Plastic Surgery can't help them anymore to be in the moviemaking business, they will always be sabotaging everybody else.

    2. Now it's obvious it has a dirty competitor so ABSCBN should up its game. It only has to sidestep the Koreans. It's obvious the Koreans can't afford other Asians in what it thought was its Latin American turf especially more beautiful Asians like the Indians, Japanese & Filipinos. Prior to the showing of Puentes de amor, the Peruvians thought Filipinos looked like the Northeast Asian Mongoloids.Now they know Pinoys looked more cosmopolitan. Still, they don't have much idea that Pinoys are good in filmmaking so few still think Pinoys are already world-class content producers & that though it lack a propaganda machine, its stars have fans in many areas of the world. There's nary a news in Peruvian press about the Emmy nominations of Teleseryes though they are found in Argentinean, Brazilian, Ecuadorian & Colombian press. There's practically no media about Pinoys now in Peru, surprisingly even those disappeared.

    3. Yeah, I noticed di na naulit yong telenovela na Indian, pati yong Intsik. Di naman nagkakalayo sa mga Koreano sa ratings pero nakakapit pa rin ang huli gayong kulelat lagi sila sa ratings.

  5. That constant baseless comment by the South Korean ambasador that Pinoys love the kdramas & kpop are meant to show that we are inferior to them, that we have low taste to pander to them. The truth is kdramas don't rate much & kpop is very peripheral, the Korean propaganda budget is bigger than the actual adherents. They need in their propaganda that Pinoys are "fans" because we are their biggest competitor to international attention among the non-Caucasian Asians. While they spend big to maintain a big propaganda machine to fake popularity, Pinoys get popular in many areas without any push.
