The globalization of pop culture has seen Filipino audiences going gaga over juvenile soap operas from Taiwan, action-packed animé from Japan, and sappy telenovelas from South America.

But a remarkable twist could just make the Philippines Asia’s favorite source of mass-produced television entertainment, with its fast-paced and technically-polished soap operas now leaving Latin imports biting the dust in the race to dominate the ratings.

The first to take advantage of this extraordinary development is ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corp., the country’s largest broadcast network, which has, in fact, begun exporting its top-rating soap operas to other countries in Southeast Asia and beyond as part of a corporate strategy to expand its market and find new sources of revenue.

“These shows are being marketed not only in Asia but Eastern Europe, South America and Africa as well,” says Cory Vidanes, ABS-CBN’s senior vice-president for television production.

Following the huge success of Mexican telenovelas and Taiwanese chinovelas in the Philippines, and with the increased globalization in Asia, she says the time is ripe for ABS-CBN to go regional and, eventually, global. A new company, ABS-CBN International Inc., has been created to handle the network’s expansion overseas.

“ABS-CBN International has been in various countries in the region as well as the world and there was an obvious demand for Filipino programs among the overseas Filipinos. The next natural step would be to cater not only to the Filipinos abroad but also to tap the potential viewers in each region,” Vidanes explains.

She adds that the network’s venture abroad taps the synergies created by ABS-CBN International, the only one with a focused international agenda in the Philippines, and ABS-CBN Broadcasting, which has the technical and talent capability to produce world-class shows for the international market.

$1m within 2 years

ABS-CBN’s soap operas, also known as teleseryes, not only dominate the ratings weeknights on primetime. Already, the earlier ones are also giving their Latin American counterparts a run for their money in the international market, each earning for the network at least $1 million in additional revenues in only one to two years.

The late-1990s soap “Mula Sa Puso,” which starred the late Rico Yan and Claudine Barretto, was aired by Radio Television (RTV) Malaysia and an Indonesian TV network last year.

Another popular telenovela, “Pangako Sa ‘Yo,” which featured Jericho Rosales and Kristine Hermosa, has been airing in RTV Malaysia for two months now, as well as in a pay TV channel.

Reena Garingan, ABS-CBN’s director for international sales and distribution, says these soaps have become so popular with Malaysian audiences that RTV Malaysia has already ordered the next Filipino telenovela that will replace “Pangako” when it ends its run in October.

“In fact, they’re planning an entire line of Filipino soaps in the next two years,” Garingan adds.

ABS-CBN has also made interesting inroads in Africa. “Pangako,” a story of two lovers torn apart by the young man’s cruel and ambitious mother, will also start airing in Kenya on Oct. 1. These telenovelas are either dubbed in the local
language or subtitled in English when aired in other countries.

Garingan says ABS-CBN is finalizing negotiations on two new soaps – “Bituin” starring Nora
Aunor and “Kaytagal Kitang Hinintay” featuring Lorna Tolentino – and the series “Maalaala Mo Kaya” with TV networks in Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia. “Kaytagal” still airs weeknights
on primetime.

Napakagandang balita! Proud ako sa mga nararating ng mga local soaps natin. I visited a malaysian forum and they're keep on comparing PANGAKO SA'YO and LA INTRUSA of Gabriela Spanic. Maraming nagsasabing mas maganda ang LA INTRUSA at marami ring nagsabi na mas the best ang PANGAKO SA'YO.

Basta, happy ako sa mga naachieved nila.

alam nyo, hindi ako ganon ka fanatic sa mga lokal telenovelas ang huli kong sinubaybayan ay mula sa puso pa nga. ayun hindi na maboboo ang cast...

anyway nagustuhan ko rin naman ang pangako sa iyo at bituin at kung mawawala ka...

hindi ko alam na sa pagsusulat din pala ng soap mauuwi ang aking career...

ang dating pinapanood ko lang ngayon ako na pala ang magsusulat.

Napakagandang balita! Proud ako sa mga nararating ng mga local soaps natin. I visited a malaysian forum and they're keep on comparing PANGAKO SA'YO and LA INTRUSA of Gabriela Spanic. Maraming nagsasabing mas maganda ang LA INTRUSA at marami ring nagsabi na mas the best ang PANGAKO SA'YO.

Basta, happy ako sa mga naachieved nila.

***Dear Actors/actresses of Pangako Sayo,

Sign Time: August 21 2003 at 08:29:58

***Yes, I am the General!! Now feel my wrath!! All you people shall kneel before me. With Claudia by my side, I shall take over Phillipine, and soon, the world!! MWAHAHAHAHAH!!!!

No one can stop me now, not even that ugly Amor or her equally so-called illegitimate daughter Maria Amor, or that stewpede Eduardo and his stewpede brother Diego, or that equally stewpede BANK, or even that pathetic and crybaby Angelo.

Hmm, speaking of Angelo, he must be one of the most useless, and pathetic hero (if he is considered THE HERO of this series) ever, not to mention, a crybaby. Man, he cries a lot. one day he quarrels with Ynamorata 'bout Felicity, and while Yna is still cool, Angelo was already all tears!! What!!?? She cries in front of a girl? And that girl is not even crying back? Pathetic!! He is a shame to every gentlemen on earth (Reminds me of one of the M'sia's X-Factor member who one day cries at a press conference after announcing that he broke up with his girlfriend. Now that's pathetic O_o). Back to Angelo: After quarrelling with Yna, Angelo drove off, with his tears of course, and after driving far, far away, he stopped. And what did he do? He CRIED (oh no, not again...), and this time, he's getting worse!! He shouted, screamed, as if he is a spoiled brat after being denied of his wishes by his parent. Now, that's what I call a "GENTLEMAN". Maybe because he's befriending the likes of people like Cookie and Cracker (Man, there are a lot of these 'Awww's clowning around, not to mention Yna's assisstant while she was doing her modelling stuff).

Now, fellow citizen, there's no use defying me. Resistance is futile. Come and join me in my conquest for a better world, a better future. A world without pathetic and useless people (like Cookie). Together with my second-in-command commanders, and you've already met one of them: Claudia. You've seen her pluck someone's eye out. If that's too vicious, then you ain't seein' nuthin yet, bub, cause she's capable in doing more than you can possibly imagine. You've seen Claudia's army, but you ain't know nuthin yet. There's more of her kind all over the world: men and women who shares the same dream like mine: Dream of a better world. No one can stop us; not even the AVENGERS, the X-MEN, the JUSTICE LEAGUE of AMERICA, or even the LEAGUE of EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN. Join me, or else, perish!!

Remember this: Anyone who opposes me will be destroyed!!go! go! go! amor power rangers

***Helloh!! My name's Amanda and I just looooooooove watching Pangako Sa Yo. I discovered it just two weeks ago (yes, I am slow) thanks to the monsoon rains always disrupting my satellite TV forcing me to watch national TV instead. I rush home from school every day just to watch it! Sadly, I have to miss Fridays episodes.
Anyways, I think it's a really good drama series. I think I enjoy it better than all the Hong Kong drama series I have watched!! What's better is there are 480 episodes and each lasts 1 hour!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Since I missed like so many episodes, I am wondering if I can get the VCD or something to catch up..... ahhh, I'm so motivated to learn Tagalog just as much as I have always wanted to learn Thai. Hope to visit the Philipines one day!! Gaaaaaaah!!
Kristine is really pretty and Jericho is handsome.. anyone got newsssss on them?? Thankss!
Amanda Rya.

***Walaupun I dah tahu apa penghabisan citer tu...tetap I tengok sirinya..Actually, sirinya banyak tapi TV kita dah potong2..so nampak cepat tamat citer tu..
Cuma endingnya memang bagus...

Anyway thumbs up to webmaster pangako sayo msia..
kalau dapat gambar Echo and Tin lagi bagus..

***You mean better than Winter Sonata (Korean drama, dubbed in Mandarin for Malaysia's viewing)? Winter Sonata is so popular that it even has its own Malay language version of its theme song. Can't wait to see if there are any Malay version of Pangako Sa 'Yo's theme song too....

***naku, dapat magingat pag sinasabing da best ang mga soaps natin (altho i undoubtedly agree) dahil iba-iba ang taste ng tao, especially sa ibang cultures. baka lang mag-backfire ang statement na yan mismo sa atin...mapahiya pa tayo. peace

to malaysian friends, sorry for sort-of invading your forum with my tagalog posts. peace also

***selamat sejahtera(hello)
I really love to watch that telenovela and never miss to enjoy watching every episodes.And I do remembered all of the name in that.Although they use Philiphine's language,but we have the subtitled in bahasa.
And I would like to have many friends from Philiphines.If Somebody read this message,please forwarded to my mail address, beachboy902000@yahoo.com
bye

***naiintindihan kong ecstatic tayo (ooooooh) dahil nagugustuhan ng mga malaysians ang mga pinoy soaps. pero sana hinay hinay lang sa posts...wag naman sana tayong masyadong magpakahalata. cool lang tayo...(sorry for speaking in tagalog)

***aku ader kwn... muke mamat tuh sebijik muke jericho rosales (angelo)... tp aku rase muke si mamat tuh more tu arabic look...

::he's doing it. she's doing it. are YOU doing it??::

***hi my name is dian, i am from singapore. i love the show . i try my best every monday to friday to get home as fast as possible from school as i don't want to miss any episod of your show.if i miss it, i make sure my mum repeat every single part of the show or i ask her to record it for me...
