Marimar, the Mexican soap that started the ‘90s telenovela craze and launched Thalia into the consciousness of Filipinos, is making a highly anticipated comeback on streaming. Jungo Pinoy, the entertainment app specifically created and curated for Filipinos by Los Angeles-based media company Jungo TV, brings back the original Tagalog-dubbed Marimar that has not been seen in the country in over 20 years.
Before the Korean wave or Hallyu hit Philippine shores, telenovelas were all the rave, with people tuning in religiously to find out how Marimar rises from her less fortunate situation, gets the guy and gets even (take that Angelica!) with the help of her adorable sidekick, the talking dog and all-around good boy Fulgoso. Marimar also paved the way for the slew of Mexican soaps starring Thalia and other stars that got Filipino audiences hooked.
It’s the first time that the original Tagalog-dubbed version will be available on-demand on a streaming platform and on local screens again after so many years thanks to Jungo Pinoy, the app that boasts the biggest Tagalog-dubbed content library and where Marimar is exclusively on-demand.
Gear up for April 21 and relive the gripping drama that is Marimar. Jungo Pinoy is treating everyone to binge watch the first 10 episodes of the super popular soap for free.
The leading streaming app will also be launching more exclusive Tagalog-dubbed series through its content partnership with Latin America media giant TelevisaUnivision, which the Jungokada can look forward to.
Download the Jungo Pinoy app on Google Play Store and Apple App Store and catch Marimar staring 21 April exclusively on-demand on Jungo Pinoy.
