ONLY YOU Philippines remake

Only You main casts

Jillian - Angel Locsin

The lead female protagonist, Jillian is headstrong and independent who becomes a single mother after a one night stand with TJ.

After she graduates from high school, she goes to a cooking school Korea. She is self-confident, active and is positive towards life. You will laugh – she has the habit of knocking her head against the wall or the table when things go wrong. Like the long-suffering heroines as in other dramas, she ends up doing for others and not considering for herself.

She is a modern Chang Jin – trying out different ways to cook the best dishes.

This unwed mother is very trendy.

TJ - Sam Milby

The lead male protagonist, TJ is the father of Jillian's son after a one night stand. He finds it very difficult to articulate his feelings to Jillian.

He is the successor of a huge corporation, Da Ying which consists of 30 subsidiaries. He is the head of the management department. He has the looks and management skills. But his love life is a blank as he is very cold. He can’t forget Jillian after 6 years. So when she appears in front of him and working under him, he puts down all his alertness and wants to get closer to her.

Jonathan - Diether Ocampo

Jonathan is Jillian's best friend who always has had feelings for her.

He was born into a family which runs a cultivating business. Unlike Jillian who has to give up her studies, he completes it although he misses her so as to provide her a better life. He becomes the top chef in one of the restaurants in Da Tong. Originally, he wants to open a restaurant with her. He has thought that she will forget TJ after their one night stand but is shocked to know that Jillian falls in love with TJ.

He later spends 6 years, trying to win her over. Besides providing her family a home, he also looks out for jobs for her. And he treats Jillian's son like his son.

Angel Locsin and Sam Milby - ‘Only You’ Philippine Version

Angel Locsin and Sam Milby - ‘Only You’ Philippine Version
February 22, 2009 by cd

According to earlier reports, the title of the Angel-Sam series was “Buhay ng Buhay Ko” but the ABS-CBN management decided to give them the Koreanovela remake instead.

Angel Locsin will be playing the role of Jillian, Sam Milby as TJ, and completing the triangle is Diether Ocampo for the role of Jonathan. At the helm is “Love Me Again” director, Rory Quintos.

Angel, Sam and Diether will start taping the series in Korea next month. The original koreanovela was set in Venice, Italy but the Philippine version will take on a more Asian feel.

Here’s the PLOT of Only You from Wikipedia:

Jillian (Angel Locsin) is a very stubborn and proud girl who has a passion for cooking. Because she does not have an interest in studying, she runs away to Italy before she graduates from high school to enroll in cooking school. Her high school friend, who loves her dearly and shares her passion for cooking, comes along with her.

TJ (Sam Milby) is from a wealthy family who owns a large hotel and various restaurants. He travels to Korea in search of his mother that abandoned his family when he was young and there he runs into Jillian. Coincidentally, Jillian had also been seeking the mother, who happens to be a chef, to learn the secrets to making great pasta. Both chance upon the mother just as she was about to get remarried to a Korean. She comforts TJ, who is distraught over his mother’s remarriage, and they spend the night together. She ends up pregnant and has to give up her dream - but does not tell TJ.

Six years later, they have all returned to live in Philippines - Jillian working low paying cooking jobs, TJ taking over the operations of his family’s restaurant, and Jillian’s friend, Jonathan (Diether Ocampo), working as a chef for one of the restaurants owned by TJ and financially supporting Jillian’s family, including the child born out of wedlock, because they have fallen on hard times. TJ still has feelings for Jillian and they run into each other just as he is looking for a new chef for his restaurant–with her in mind.

Only You is set to premiere on ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida on May 2009.
