I don't know but why are they changing the names of the characters in a koreanovela, japanovela or taiwanovela? Why?

I guess para maging relevant sa mga viewers? Like for example, Kim Tan saka Ryan. sa mga nakakanood kasi ng advance sanay tayo sa Kim Tan. pero mas recognizable ng mga tao yung pangalang Ryan. :)

Narealize ko lang kasi nung niremake yung mga dramas like Witch's Romance, Fated to Love You saka Nodame Cantabile. Niremake lang yung plot, pero yung mga names kanya-kanya na.

Nasanay kasi tayo sa mga telenovelas from Mexico na nireretain lang din yung mga pangalan.

Although I must say ok lang din na iretain yung mga names for Korean dramas, especially kung catchy gaya ng Jan-Di (na pangalan ng aso namin, until now  ;D )
