HEART EVANGELISTA participated in the Global Town Hall session of the event “Light at the End of 2020: What Worries Me, What Gives Me Hope” last Friday. 

This was organized by respected political and economic experts from various countries like Australia, France, India, Indonesia, Russia, UK and USA, among others. The theme was Rebuilding from the Covid 19 World and Heart considers it an honor to be part of the said event.

Heart is known for her Big Heart PH project that is why she’s known as the Queen of Creative Collaborations. She continues to give free tablets or i-pads to poor students in various communities that they can use for their online classes in this time of the pandemic. 

She is now giving another batch of tablets to underpriviledged kids.

“I’m just thankful that I’m given opportunities to give back to those most in need during times like these,” she says. “For this recent 2nd batch that was launched last Nov. 9, I tied up with Cherry Mobile to give away another 500 Cherry tablets with free data to more students in need of a device. 

"Just make sure to stay updated with and follow Big Heart PH to find out how you can avail your own Cherry tablet along with free data!” 

Her Big Heart PH project is included in the “Isang Puso Ngayong Pasko”, the 2020 Christmas Station ID of GMA Network that you can watch on the YouTube channel of GMA. Meantime, her hit romcom series, “My Korean Jagiya”, will have a rewind on GMA Telebabad starting this Monday night. 

It follows the story of Heart as Gia, a teacher and hopeless romantic who is often teased that she will be an old maid. 

She is also a self-confessed K-drama fan determined to meet her long-time crush, Korean superstar Kim Jun Ho, played by Korean actor Alexander Lee, who has mysteriously stepped out of the limelight and gone missing at the height of his career.

An unfortunate incident brings the two of them together and they eventually become friends. But for Gia, Jun Ho will always mean something more. Are some dreams just too good to be true?  

Heart shared that she’s excited for viewers to catch the rerun of My Korean Jagiya, 

“We really need to watch something that will make us feel happy, pampalipas-oras because a lot of people are at home. And at the same time, I’m happy because what we worked hard for and what we enjoyed doing before, we can watch and experience again. It’s so exciting!”

Alexander affirmed her sentiments and added that the series could bring a smile to people’s faces.

 “I believe that this is the perfect time to watch My Korean Jagiya again!” he says. “It will definitely give them enjoyment, happiness, and definitely some kilig too! Hope everyone could stay safe at home and enjoy MKJ again!”

Also starring in the series are Janice De Belen, Ricky Davao, Iya Villania-Arellano, Edgar Allan Guzman, and Valeen Montenegro; with the special participation of Korean stars David Kim, Michelle Oh, and Jerry Lee.

 “My Korean Jagiya” was partly shot in some of South Korea’s most scenic spots that are often used in famous K-dramas including Nami Island, Namsan Park, Love Padlocks at N Seoul Tower, and Daejanggeum Park.
