Way before K-dramas became part of Filipino's daily routines, Mexican telenovelas dominated Filipino television and K-dramas were still called Koreanovelas back then.
Now, more and more adaptations are being done, be it on the big screen or television series, with the Philippine adaptation of BBC Studios' "Doctor Foster" being the latest. It will star none other than the powerhouse cast of Jodi Sta. Maria, Sue Ramirez, and Zanjoe Marudo, and while it's still in the works, let's all look back at the iconic adaptations done by ABS-CBN before:
