There’s something for Filipino K-Drama fans to smile about! And that includes the K-Drama Smile Honey which is currently airing on TV5, unknown to many.
With ABS-CBN and GMA networks dominating Philippine TV ratings, I checked out TV5 to see if there were some K-Dramas being aired that Filipino K-Drama fans were missing out on just because they mostly tune in to the two leading TV channels. Sure enough, I found Smile Honey and other K-Dramas on their “Gusto Ko Noon” program schedule.

Monday to Saturday 1:45pm

This is the crazy story of an unstoppable family led by the gangster Simon (Lee Yoon Ho), who is known in school for his high kick, and his brother Rico (Kim Hye Sung), who enjoys spending time on scale models and web blogs. The two brothers are polar opposites in character but attend the same class in school despite being one year apart in age.
Of these four, I highly recommend Smile Honey. It’s a light, funny, and really entertaining drama with a pair of leads that have really good chemistry. Local K-Drama fans who enjoy romantic comedies will surely love this one.
