Pinoy fans turn nostalgic as iWantTFC celebrates "Meteor Garden's" 18th anniversary

“Meteor Garden,” Thai BL series, Chinese and Korean dramas streaming in PH for free

Eighteen years after its first episode aired on Philippine TV, “Meteor Garden” fever is still very much alive as Pinoy fans reminisced their experiences watching the show and flooded the comments section of iWantTFC’s social media post that celebrated the show’s anniversary.

Currently, iWantTFC offers free streaming in the Philippines of the Tagalized version of the original “Meteor Garden,” as well as Jerry Yan’s newest Asianovela “Count Your Lucky Stars.”

User Carolyn Castiotos said, “I was 9 years old when I started to collect some of F4's pictures and posters! Until now they’re still up on the wall of our bedroom.”

Redelene Santos also shared, “I was addicted to Vic Zhou. I was pregnant when Meteor Garden came out. I really followed the series. Now, my child is going on 18 this July and is addicted to K-Pop.”

Antoneth Dy, meanwhile, shared her own anecdote, “I was 16. I remember how I cried to my mom and begged to buy me posters. To FIMHS batch 2004, y’all still remember how we begged our CAT teacher to finish the class early because dismissal was scheduled as the same time as the show started on TV. Those days are gold.”

As the home of Asianovelas, iWantTFC continues to offer an extensive library of Chinese, Thai, and Korean titles that Pinoys can access for free, such as the hit 2018 legal drama “Suits” and “Story of Yanxi Palace,” which is based off an original Chinese novel.

K-drama lovers will also find stories about life and romance, and intriguing sci-fi plots in “Gangnam Beauty,” “I Have a Lover,” “Codename: Terrius,” “Go Back Couple,” and “I am not a Robot.” Viewers can also watch award-winning Korean series “Love in Sadness” and “Mother.”
