Controversies[edit]

Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala was supposed to be extended due to high ratings. Unfortunately, due to the request of Koreanovela fans, the series' extension is later stopped by the fans of That Winter, The Wind Blows and My Husband's Lover, followed by Judy Ann's decision to finish her show immediately to give way for Got to Believe.[10][11][12]
