WHAT CAN KRIS Bernal say about former partner Aljur Abrenica’s tip to Rocco Nacino and Steven Silva that they should study their script for “Koreana” well before taping as Kris is a take one actress. “Siempre natuwa naman ako when I heard he said that,” she says. “I felt na he cares pa rin naman pala for me kahit hindi na kami ang magkapareha. In fairness to him, he texts me talaga to keep in touch. In ‘Ilumina’, he has two leading ladies, Rhian Ramos and Jackie Rice. Ngayon, heto sa ‘Koreana’ at dalawa rin ang leding men ko, sina Rocco at Steve, so amanos na lang kami. At least pareho kaming dala-dalawa ang naging kapareha after mahiwalay kami sa isa’t isa. Ang ganda ngang welcome sa pagbabalik ko sa soap, dalawang lalaki agad.”

In “Koreana”, Kris plays the daughter of Angelu de Leon, a Pinay, who falls in love with a Korean, Marco Morales, much against the wishes of Marco’s dad, Eddie Garcia. Marco’s sister, Eula Valdes, drives Angelu away and the baby, who becomes Kris Bernal, is raised by Lotlot de Leon. Also in the cast are Sab Magalona, Sylvia Sanchez, Joyce Ching, Dinky Doo, Grace Lee and Luigi Revilla, the son of Sen. Bong Revilla with a woman named Lovely who’s now also part of GMA Artist Center. “Koreana” starts airing on Monday in GMA’s Dramarama sa Hapon.
