Angel Locsin sure can slap.
This was made clear during a 2014 confrontation scene between her character, Monica, and Maja Salvador's Nicole -- a demonstration of just how intense local dramas can go.
It's a scene that remains to be one of the most memorable teleserye moments in recent years, thanks to lines such as the one Monica shouted: "Akin lang ang asawa ko!"
And it's now available in Thai, after one of the country's biggest TV companies bought the rights to air "The Legal Wife."
Anne Jakkraphong Jakrajutatip, the CEO of JKN Global Media, said that they decided to air the top-rated drama, about the importance of forgiveness and reconciliations, because of its content that "resonates with Thai family and culture."
A Thai-dubbed trailer is available on the website of JKN Global Media, and it teased the unforgettable fight between Monica and Nicole.
"Bridges of Love," another drama starring Salvador was also picked up "because of its intense storyline and the interesting dynamics of the lead roles in the series," said Jakrajutatip.
Jakrajutatip trusts the stars of the two shows to "conquer the hearts of Thai viewers" in the same way they captured those of Filipino fans.
This is the first time that "The Legal Wife" will be dubbed in another language. "Bridges of Love" was already aired in Latin America through Peruvian TV station, PanAmericana.
