Tonight on the 3rd slot of GMA Telebabad, the much-awaited local version of Coffee Prince
will premiere. The original version of the hit Koreanovela
was aired in Korea back in 2007, and the Philippines a year after. Since then, talks of a Philippine remake circulated throughout various fansites and message boards. Finally, it all came together and with the loveteam of Aljur Abrenica and Kris Bernal playing the lead roles of Arthur and Andie, respectively. Lending major support to the two are Benjamin Alves as Errol and Max Collins as Arlene – two important characters in the series.
