First there was the Filipino Adaptation of SBS' "MY GIRL" now another Korean Drama
was remake into a more "Filipinized" series... and that's My Name is Kim Sam Soon which
was literally translated into Filipino as "AKO SI KIM SAM SOON"

ok.. lets have a Commentary Reviews on these two series...

"AKO SI KIM SAM SOON" from the MBC original drama by Kim Sun Ah "My name is Kim Sam Soon"

story synopsis:

Samsoon Kim (Velasquez) is a baker who has a talent in making pastries and cakes.
On Christmas Eve, she caught her boyfriend, Harvey (Ramos), cheating on her and
breaks up with him. On that same night, she accidentally went into the men's
restroom to cry and meets Cyrus Ruiz (Fernandez), a somewhat callous fellow but
sometimes considerate guy. By sheer coincidence, Cyrus needs a baker for his
restaurant, Bon Appetit and Sam-Soon is unemployed. Sam-Soon is hired as the
restaurant's chief baker and the two fight like cat and dog. Nevertheless, they
start to have feelings for each other and Sam-Soon agrees to pose as Cyrus'
girlfriend so that his mother would leave him alone. Things got complicated
when Cyrus' ex-girlfriend Hanna Yoo (Samonte) came back from the States intending
to win him back.

Philippine Version of "My Girl" which has the same title with its Korean counterpart


Jasmine (Kim Chiu) is an impostor, proficient in Cebuano, Chinese, and Tagalog,
while Julian (Gerald Anderson) is the second generation heir of a big corporation.
Because of his grandfather’s illness, he is forced to ask Jasmine to act as his
long-lost cousin so that his grandfather’s last wish can be fulfilled.
Therefore, they are both bound in a lie so that no-one in the family knows the
truth. Julian’s intelligent ex-girlfriend, Anika who grew up in a rich family
dreaming to become a world-famous beauty queen, returns to Philippines after
winning a title and works hard at getting back with Julian, thus causing both
she and Jasmine to have cutthroat competitions for Julian’s affection.

My Girl is already being shown in the Philippines which has started last May 26 2008
(Mondays-Fridays @ 9:15 pm)

While Ako si Kim Sam Soon will premiere today (June 30, 2008) in the evening

so far My Girl is doing good it's a romantic-comedy with a light story... as ASKSS I still have no idea
