After starring in the web series LUV Express last year, Kristel Fulgar fulfilled another one of her dreams as she produces the upcoming web drama Love From Home under OCTV. During the virtual fan meet for her show Aja! Aja! tayo na sa Jeju, Kristel said that she has always enjoyed watching Korean TV shows. 

“Fan talaga ako ng mga Korean shows especially Korean variety shows and K-dramas. Matagal ko na talagang plano and hindi ko akalain na kaya ko pa lang gawin para mag-produce ng isang web drama,” she said.

The 26-year-old actress shared her experience producing a Fil-Korean web drama for the first time.

“Yung mag-produce pa lang ng web drama parang ang hirap na kung iisipin pero nakagawa ako ng first web drama under OCTV and ito bago naman and mas nag-explore kami. Kumuha kami ng Korean actor and pinili ko na hindi na ako yung maging artista kasi gusto ko mag-concentrate sa directing and producing. Mahirap but since nagsisimula pa lang yung channel namin na OCTV, hindi rin ganun kalaki yung budget namin. Pero masasabi ko na proud ako dito and proud ako sa mga naging ka-team ko, team Philippines and team Korea, na na-push namn yung ganitong klaseng project and as a Filipino, nakaka-proud kasi 80% of this web drama, kahit na may collaboration with Korea, made in the Philippines. Kaya sana masuportahan din ng mga Kapamilya,” she explained.

After working on Love From Home, Kristel said her appreciation for Korean culture has gotten even stronger and she explained why she will always be a fan.

“I’m a K-drama fan. As in super addict ako. Pero naging parang exposed na rin ako sa K-pop. May mga friends ako na mahilig sa K-pop din. And masasabi ko na very creative sila. Kahit may mga taong hindi nakakaintindi ng lyrics nung kanta pero yung melody pa lang nakukuha na sila and ang galing nila gumawa ng music videos. Nakaka-impress talaga na pinagpapaguran. And yung hard work and effort nila sa paggawa ng project na yun yung feeling ang na-a-appreciate ng tao at vina-value,” she explained.
