"One True Love" shown on October 14 at My TV Africa (all Subsaharan African countries except South Africa)

I'm on travel and the internet connection sucked. I usually allot 10 minutes sneak time to post my articles via my smartphone but my attempts the past days were really a struggle, be it via Wi-Fi or LTE. Sorry for the missed posts.

Anyway, we have here an encouraging news from GMA, the second TV broadcast station of the Philippines. It sold a teleserye starring Alden Richards & it's going to be aired on My TV Africa on October 14. I criticized GMA before for undermining the world-class Pinoy capacity to produce teleseryes by continuing to ply low-rating Korean dramas, acting like the Peruvian Panamericana TV of the Philippines (Panamericana showed kdramas for 10 years though they were perennially at the bottom of the Peruvian ratings lorded over by telenovelas from Mexico, Peru, Turkey, Colombia & the Philipines, but it was a low-rating station generally which needed other sources of income, while GMA should have had more self-respect because it was supposed to be in a higher class- its shows could still rate rather highly). But we'll continue to encourage so it can outgrow its inferiority complex (and help some Pinoys outgrow their liit ng tingin sa sarili) and join in strengthening the Pinoy brand- because teleseryes have only one brand- Pinoy.

  1. Bakit ba kasi pinapaboran ang mga Koreano e $3 million lang investment sa Pilipinas this year while $800 million ang Japan at $500 ang Singapore? Bangkrupt pa ang Hanjin nila. Pag ma-open uli ang trade sa China, sigurado billion agad yan pero nagtitiyaga tayo sa mga pekeng mukha ng mga Koreano e katuso-tuso nila?

  2. Kuha mo... LIIT NG TINGIN SA SARILI. Dahil sa liit ng tingin sa sarili, mahilig sa wa class at low taste

  3. Mahilig lang manuhol ang mga Koreano... direkta ang panunuhol nila sa mga announcer at mayhawak ng mga programa para sa publicity at propaganda nila.
