There’s no shame on watching adult entertainment for pleasure. As taboo as people today might treat it, enjoying porn is normal. But who would’ve thought that our country will earn a badge at being so good at it?
Yes, the Philippines ranked first on Pornhub’s official tally of viewers in 2017. Apparently, Filipinos love their content so much that they spend the longest time among other countries.
According to numbers recorded by the site, Pinoys spent an average of 13 minutes and 28 seconds watching their videos. Meanwhile, the global average is only 9 minutes and 59 seconds.
Next in the list to us come South Africa, the United States, Canada and Argentina.
You know what’s funny and ironic?
Despite the countless reports from Filipino internet users that Pornhub is difficult to access nowadays, we still placed at the number one spot in the site’s report.
Most-searched personalities were also discovered through the tally. The charm of Japanese star Maria Ozawa still gets to viewers even now that she’s no longer doing porn.
Overall, Pornhub rakes over 28.5 billion visits just from last year, which concludes to 81 million daily engagements worldwide.
An article published by the Daily Mail criticized the National Health Service (NHS) for continuing to hire nurses from the Philippines despite of the scandalous case of Victorino Chua who was found guilty of murdering two elderly patients.
A group of Filipinos and nurses felt unnerved by the negative stereotype being put forward by the Daily Mail. Jamima Fagta, a project officer of Kunlungan Alliance, said that when the case of Victorino Chua was highlighted, she expected that there would be a lot of attention on Filipinos.
After the incident, an Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) spokesman said that registration will be more stringent than before. Nurses are now required to complete a study program, register for a Face to Face identification, and undergo a series of practical tests.
The Philippine Association of Nurses in London said that the Filipino nurses are a big part of the NHS.
Meanwhile, the Embassy of the Philippines in London, UK, released a statement highlighting the excellence and qualification of filipino nurses and that the Victorino Chua murder case is only an isolated incident.
Torch Apps, an independent development team based in Manila, put up a site named Butthurt, which reveals Filipino (over)sensitivities.
Butthurt tracks down how many times Filipinos have been offended. The website records different events that hit the Pinoy’s ego and backs it up with related news.
See the hot news that trended online causing Filipinos to be “butthurt.”
The team behind the site advocates transparency, accountability, and citizen engagement. Aside from Butthurt, existing sites run under the team include Politiko (which compares views of people among the political candidates) and Rollcall (an app made to check congress attendance).
Another community page has once said, “If you don’t want to be offended, you better not use internet for life.”
Here we open doors for any comments and open minded netizens, we believe, accept others’ opinions and they know to give ‘respect’ to everyone.

What a great nostalgic feeling I’m having right now! I can still remember the days when I rush home just to tune in to this pretty addicting TV show which became part of my refined childhood memories. And now it is being shown again nationwide. I am to a certain extent convinced that this will once again give its audience, most of which belong to the teenage category, a bamboozling and remarkable feeling of infatuation, excitement and curiosity. Yes, I am talking about Taiwan’s “Meteor Garden”.
While the “Meteor Garden Fever” still exists up to this day which is something that I can’t argue about since I can see posts and comments about how eager people are looking forward to this show, let us not forget that Meteor Garden once had its rival shows produced by other countries like Korea and Japan namely, Boys Over Flowers/ Boys Before Flowers and Hana Yori Dango in that order. You can also find China’s version of the show but I am only going to mention the top three versions that I know. All of these were deemed as an adaptation of a Japanese shoujo manga called Hana Yori Dango (Boys Over Flowers) printed and demonstrated by Yoko Kamio. His work of art set the record for the bestselling shoujo Manga in Japan of all time which really deserved to be portrayed in front of the big screen.
Basically, these three adaptations follow the original Manga’s plot of flow of the story in which it revolved around Eitoku Academy, a school where the country’s most influential and powerful people’s children were being sent. Only a selected few or should I say the cream of the crop were allowed to be in that academy. It just so happened that the central character, Tsukushi Makino – a diligent and charming girl who came from a poor family. Unfortunately, she came across with the academy’s elite group called F4 ( short for “Flower Four”) I just found its meaning as kind of inappropriate though since I’m expecting something like “Fearless Four” , “Furious Four” or “Freakish Four” LOL.
She was bullied, discriminated and insulted by the F4, by the way aside from its members being overly rich and prominent individuals, their handsome and elegant looks are something which can’t be denied and they were the apple of the eyes of all the girls inside the academy. Then add a bunch of drama and love story twists, and we’re going to have a wonderful TV series which will definitely captivate its audience of all ages. However, some of the details were modified according to each show’s production and management’s choices.
Now let’s take a look at each show’s main characters and decide which among them are the most suitable ones to portray the famous Manga, Hana Yori Dango’s characters. ( Although the manga was made in Japan, we should still not be biased and not immediately lean towards Japan’s own adaptation though ) Peace!
Jerry Yan – Dao Ming Si
Matsumoto Jun – Domoyouji
Lee Min Ho – Gu Jun Pyo
Barbie Xu – Shan Cai
Inoue Mao – Makino Tsukushi
Goo Hye Sun – Jan Di
Vic Zhou – Hua Ze Lei
Oguri Shun – Hanazawa Rui
Kim Hyun Joong – Yun Ji Hoo
I will not be going over the details of these actors’ performance and how well they portrayed the characters that were assigned to them since you probably already knew if they did well and if they went above or below your standards considering the fact that most of you guys have unquestionably watch these three series before if you are a self anointed avid fan.
The best thing that I can do is to give you a short clip which contains all of these characters and it’s up for you to decide who to pick among them.
My question is, if you will be given a chance to make a “Dream Team” or a fantasy cast of characters to portray the Hana Yori Dango manga wherein you are only allowed to choose between the actors above, who would you choose? Mine will be ( Lee Min Ho, Inoue Mao, Vic Zhou, Kim Bum and Vanness Wu )
Pinoy Adaptation of Hana Yori Dango
All I can say is “Why not?” Since there have been many adaptations being made by other countries which became major TV hits, why don’t we make our own version of it? Who knows, we might even break the popularity that these three TV shows have attained before. But first, we have to figure out who will be the possible actors which will star in our very own Filipino version. There have been a lot of attempts to finally make a Pinoy version of the series. It was even said to have already been finalized way back 2011 and it was supposed to be called “Brat Boys Beyond” (awful name…ugh!) starring Sarah Geronimo and other quite unknown starlets. Good thing it didn’t push through and ABS-CBN managed to get away with having the guts to face embarrassment because I am pretty sure that I will surely flop.
Now another hot topic resurfaces as this cute and amazing Pinoy version of the viral craze will be composed of Coco martin,Matteo guidicelli,Daniel padilla,Enchong dee and Sarah Geronimo. Do you think this will work out? If not, then who do you think suits each characters more? Feel free to suggest. =)
I love Hana Yori Dango, http://ilovehanadan.tumblr.com/
