Winter Sonata the anime at Animax featuruing Alodia

Alodia’s Warm Winter Symphony:
Animax launches Winter Sonata-- the animated series

Winter just got warmer as Animax launches Winter Sonata- the anime.

Making its debut in South East Asia, Animax recently launched the anime version of Winter Sonata, the drama that triggered the Korean wave not just in the Philippines but in other countries as well. 

The leading animation channel celebrated the arrival of this much-awaited series by holding a piano recital featuring Animax’s very own Ani-mate, Alodia Gosengfiao, playing the show’s iconic theme, “From Beginning ‘Til End”. 

Ms. Maria Ong, Marketing Manager of Animax Asia, graced the event who flew all the way from Singapore expressed her delight and excitement over the showing of the animation.

The much-anticipated animated adaptation of Winter Sonata brings back 23 of the original cast members, headed by Bae Yong Jun as Kang Joon-sang and Choi Ji Woo as Jung Yu-jin, to play the same characters they did on the original series.  I still remember the days when I first watched the original series, it did capture a part of me (a self confessed K-drama fan), this was one series I really did like

And in trying not to offend loyal fans of the Korean series, the anime version draws much of its visuals from the original drama. True enough, a lot of the scenes in the anime are very reminiscent of scenes from the original version. Fans can also look forward to the conclusion of the anime series that will feature a new live-action drama epilogue not aired during the original drama series.

Winter Sonata : A winter love story is based on the 2002 original Korean drama that captured the hearts of millions worldwide, the anime version of this epic romance tells the tragic love story of Jung Yu-Jin and Kang Joon-sang. Both met and became friends while in high school. Drawn together by a series of events both happy and sad, it didn’t take long for the two to fall in love with each other.

For those who have not watched the original drama series, taking a view at this anime might entice you to watch the original one, and for those loyal fans, this offers another opportunity to reminisce and to give another view of the series itself.  Watch it to find out why the world has fallen all over this K-series.

Winter Sonata is on during weekdays at 7:00 PM only on Animax.
