Universal Records recently announced a new mini-series called Pag-ibig Na Kaya, in support of the release of Julie Anne San Jose and Rayver Cruz’s remake of the mid-2000s love song of the same name.
While the JulieVer couple is set to top-bill this project, they will also be joined by two Korean talents: one is the previously announced actor Kim Won-shik, who appeared in the dramas True Beauty and Alchemy of Souls, and the other one is an idol known for his singing.
Everyone, meet JAYDEN.
Yoon Jay-den (윤제이든) is a South Korean-German singer under PARKYOON Entertainment.
He started as a pre-debut member of the group DS BOYS, now known as LUMINOUS, until he became a soloist in 2021 with his debut single “26.” This was followed by “SEE U AGAIN” and his latest release “Don’t Leave Me.” The latter came out just last September and already has almost 100,000 streams on Spotify.
In Pag-ibig Na Kaya, JAYDEN will portray himself.
He shared, “I’m very honored because I’ve never had a film or series before. It’s really my first time acting and again, I’m very honored.”
The Korean singer added “It was my first time meeting Rayver and Julie Anne and they were super nice. I’ve never had a project like this before and I’ve had so much fun shooting the scenes.”
On the language barrier, he shared, “I can’t speak Filipino so they wrote my script in English. It was easy for me to memorize it. For me the storyline is good. It’s my first time acting so I was nervous at first but everyone was so nice and the actors are nice. I had so much fun. I hope the Filipino fans like it. I hope they can find something very refreshing and special in this mini-series.”
Pag-ibig Na Kaya, the mini-series, is written by JP Lopez and directed by Niq Ablao. It will come out this February.
JAYDEN is also set to be announced as part of the Universal Records artist roster this year.
