Can chance encounters lead to lasting romances? Two hit “Koreanovelas,” “Encounter” and “Gangnam Beauty,” show viewers the answer on ABS-CBN’s Kapamilya Primetime Bida and Kapamilya Gold time slots, respectively.
In “Encounter,” recent Manila visitor Park Bo Gum and Song Hye Kyo play Marco Kim and Pauline Cha in the slow-burn romance drama that had the international audience lauding their performances.
As Pauline, Hye Kyo is a hotel CEO. She goes to Cuba to expand her business; there, she meets Marco, played by Bo Gum. The two believe that their encounter was just a chance meeting, but will be surprised when they go back to Korea.
Meanwhile, “Gangnam Beauty” tackles the troubles of Im Soo Hyang as Mikka Kang. Mikka desires a normal life but is often bullied in school, forcing her to accept an offer to undergo plastic surgery.
But Kenzo Do (Cha Eun Woo), a schoolmate whom Mikka met at a bus stop, had secretly grown fond of her, seeing past Mikka’s physical traits to the personality within.
