I just heard from Kring Elenzano of funnysexy.ph that her friend, Cherish Maningat-Bae will be the lead actress in the Korean musical Arirang Fantasy.
This musical focuses on the story of a Filipina who falls for a Korean man but becomes disillusioned when her life doesn’t end up with perfect happiness and kisses like in Korean Drama land! When her husband dies, not only is she left to care for their farm and their daughter, she also has to be responsible for her mother-in-law. Sounds like a plot for a serious Korean Drama, right?!
So if ever you’re in Korea anytime from now until July 30, do watch this play. Admission is FREE because it’s supported by the Korean Racing Authority. I think this play will be a very good instrument in fostering better relations between Korea and the Philippines.
Kring actually has a full interview with Cherish that you can check out HERE wherein she talks about being a Filipina theater actress in Korea, discrimination, and her future plans.
Thanks to funnysexy for the photo and the news!
