Kapamilya stars Kim Chiu and RK Bagatsing headed to South Korea to shoot the special anniversary episode of the hit legal drama “Ipaglaban Mo,” which airs this Saturday (June 16), featuring the case of ex-lovers fighting over their child’s custody.
Hazel (Kim) and Alvin (RK) are overseas Filipino workers in South Korea. They are a picture of happiness and love, with Alvin even promising to marry Hazel after they have saved enough money.
Things turn sour, however, when Hazel finds out that Alvin has been cheating on her.
After Alvin gets deported back to the Philippines because of a lapsed working visa, Hazel learns she is pregnant with his child. With no one else to turn to, she asks Alvin to take care of their child, with a promise to return for the kid.
Time passes by and Hazel, who is now married to Korean national Ji-hoo (Kyumin Moon), is ready to take her child back under her care. Unfortunately, Alvin refuses and resorts to legal measures to fight for the child’s custody.
Will Hazel ever get her child back? Whose side will the court take?
“Ipaglaban Mo” has been educating viewers about their rights for four years now since it started airing on ABS-CBN. The show even went out of its way of offering free legal advice to people every week via ABS-CBN’s Tulong Center.
Aside from the fourth year on air of its relaunch on ABS-CBN, “Ipaglaban Mo” also celebrates its 30th year as the longest-running legal drama on Philippine television.
Don’t miss the “Korea” episode of “Ipaglaban Mo,” directed by Raymund Ocampo, this Saturday (June 16) after “It’s Showtime” on ABS-CBN.
