Tayong Dalawa, one of the country’s most watched teleseryes today, is airing its final week starting Monday, September 21, 2009. The nine-month old series will be replaced by the most anticipated team-up of KC Concepcion and Piolo Pascual with Zanjoe Marudo in the Philippine remake of one of Korea’s most successful series, Lovers in Paris.
Lovers in Paris is a story of Vivian, Carlo and Martin caught in a love triangle which blossomed in the world’s most romantic city. Of course the three actors had to go to Paris to shoot some scenes for the show and that makes Lovers in Paris the seventh Philippine series with scenes shot overseas. (Correct me if I’m wrong) I’m assuming you all have a bad memory so I came up with this list just in case you would want to know what the other six are.
