Kapamilya Cristine Reyes at the Seoul International Drama Awards 2009

A blog visitor asked yesterday if it was true that Philippine actress Cristine Reyes had won the “Best Actress” award at the “2009 Seoul International Drama Awards”. I replied that I didn’t find her name in the list I saw. However, when I visited the SDA Exhibit at Gwanghwamun Plaza with my family this afternoon, I learned that she indeed had won the “Best Actress” award in a Drama Series for “Eva Fonda”. The ABS-CBN produced teleserye also won a “Special Citation”.

Cristine Reyes also attended the awards night that was held on September 11 at the Olympic Park in eastern Seoul. She was also escorted by popular musical actor and talent Um Ki Joon. Here are some pictures on the web.

Cristine Reyes enjoyed her trip to Seoul as evidenced from the photos she posted on her Facebook account. She raved about the street food!
UPDATE: Based on what she wrote on her Facebook photos, she didn’t win Best Actress. And like what I wrote in another post, I didn’t see her name in the list of winners.


  1. so tama pla ang nbsa ko sa all kpop dati..hehehe..who designed her gown?buti nlng she’s white and pretty kung hindi..pero congratulations parin.yehey!

  2. I actually read about her nomination almost two weeks ago. although i haven’t seen the drama i just had this feeling that cristine could successfully bring home the bacon. ironically, i saw her acting in passing only but i could tell that she’s a good actress. congratulations to her. the pinoys have been doing so well this year. i hope there will be more before the year ends

  3. i was able to watched the live broadcast of seoul international awards while waiting for the music bank — (since 2NE1 will be performing pretty boy) ; naka shock yung gown nya..

  4. she’s pretty there ah, nice naman un gown but why brown color. anyway @izzie oh! u’ve seen the broadcast of the awards, pwede q ba pa xa panoorin uli, just wanna watch lng, help nmn how. thank you in advance, please reply or someone outhere.

  5. did she really won? from what i’ve seen last nyt, must be replay, a girl named Maria won the best actress award

  6. love her gown. hehe
    ms. bechay, id like to watch the asia music festival on the 9th. in your past blog, you said you wouldn’t be back. is it that jampacked?
    .-= giselle´s last blog ..interview =-.

  7. Wow at least nanominate sya. Nga pala Ms. Betchay, ang taba naman ni Cristine Reyes. D ba nanalo sya sexiest woman ng FHM, bakit ganun katawan nya? sana nagdiet muna. anyway, pretty talaga sya. Mas maganda pang di hamak kay KIM TAE HEE! 😉

    1. ASA mas maganda si Cristine Reyes kesa kay Kim Tae Hee kasi si Kim Tae Hee ang daming kamukha sa Korea. Mas lamang di hamak ang Filipina beauty kesa sa Korean beauty kasi sa Korea magpapaplastic surgery lang magkakamukha pa at ang base si Kim Tae Hee so no, Cristine Reyes is more beautiful.

      1. Hindi ko type si KTH… yun lang… may ad poster siya for a product before and I thought medyo off yung mukha niya

  8. maganda ung gown nya kya lang nagmukha cyang mataba. sana nagsuot cya ng mas sexy na gown para kinabog nya yung ibang mga artistang babae dun sa event,hehe. Congratulations sa Eva Fonda!

  9. @eva fifi
    you’re right. well, most of the pinoy actors are better looking than korean actors. mas cute lang silang tignan because naging trademark na nila ang magpacute by distorting their face and pouting their lips. their flawless skin make them look pretty too but if you look closely pinoy actors have more beautiful facial features.

  10. I stumbled across your blog today while wasting time, and i just wanted to say thanks for making such comprehensive posts about living in Korea. I’m a Filipina, grew up in Australia, and am currently studying Korean as a major at university. I have always wondered about what it was like to be Filipina living in Korea, so this blog is extremely insightful. Thanks again and keep up the good work 🙂

  11. Yep, as per boy abunda & christine reyes, she didn’t win the best actress award but the Eva fonda drama series did win a special award..Congrats!
    Truelalu, Pinoy artist are better looking than Koreans (if you look closely , ika nga ni Dolphin)pero totoo nman tlga. I hope there will be more PInoy artist who will blossom in international showbiz industry.
