Viewers of GMA Network’s top-rating series My Korean Jagiya will have more reasons to be hooked to their favourite primetime program as Korean actor Andy Ryu joins the cast.

Andy plays the role of Lee Gong Woo, a Korean actor who visits the Philippines to promote his movie and some endorsements. But during his stay in the country, he needs a translator. Gong Woo then meets Gia (Heart Evangelista) in a language school and becomes his temporary interpreter.

Andy Ryu, who appeared in the Korean series Cinderella and Queen Seondok, expressed his excitement to work with the whole cast of My Korean Jagiya since this is his first time to work outside Korea.

“Marami na siyang nagawang project sa Korea before, but since it’s his first time to do overseas work, he’s very excited na makapag-contribute naman sa magandang takbo ng show ngayon,” he said through the program’s Korean consultant and interpreter Sarang Lim.

He also added his enthusiasm in seeing his Filipino fans welcome him in the country, “He’s very happy to see his fans dito po sa Pilipinas. And as he said it before na sobrang excited siya na makasama ang mga cast at sumama sa bagong drama. He’ll do his best para maging maganda ang part niya sa My Korean Jagiya.”

Meanwhile, Cindy (Valeen Montenegro) continues to hinder the budding love story of Gia (Heart Evangelista) and Jun Ho (Alexander Lee) after pretending to be diagnosed with cancer. As Gia decided to leave the house of Jun Ho, Cindy thinks she has already won against her and that she wants to win Pao’s (Khaine Dela Cruz) trust to gradually get Jun Ho back. However with the help of Kennedy (Iya Villania), Gia finds out the truth about Cindy’s condition. How will she tell Jun Ho about this?

On the other hand, Gia’s Tita Josie (Ricky Davao) and Tita Aida (Janice de Belen) continue to fight over Dodong (Raymart Santiago). They even planned to follow each other’s whereabouts through bribing some of their relatives. But who among them will Dodong choose?
