Princess hours craze

On December 18, 2006, Princess Hours premiered on ABS-CBN in the Philippines. Ratings hit 18.9%[1], and the show lagged against A Rosy Life of GMA7, which was in the latter's final week of airing. However, as the story unfolded, the ratings increased to about 24% for the Mega Manila Area[citation needed]. For Nationwide Ratings it hit a 36.34% ratings.[citation needed]
The characters have undergone name changes to better fit the Philippine populace: Chae-kyeong became Janelle, Lee Shin became Gian, Lee Yool became Troy, and Min Hyo-rin became Monique. As with other Koreanovelas, the show was dubbed in native Tagalog. Princess Hours is currently shown Monday to Thursday at 10:30 PM (Philippine Time) in the Primetime Bida of ABS-CBN.
The theme song included on the official soundtrack, "Perhaps Love" (Hangul: 사랑인가요, sarangingayo (romanized), originally sung by J and HowL), was translated into Tagalog as "Pag-ibig Nga Kaya" and performed by Christian Bautista and Rachelle Ann Go. Another theme song, entitled "If We Fall In Love", was composed by RJ Jimenez and sung by Yeng Constantino with the composer.
