Luis Manzano hosts locally adapted Korean game show


Weekend family bonding will be more fun and exciting as ABS-CBN finally premieres the local adaptation of South Korea’s hit mystery music game show I Can See Your Voice today.

With the country’s most sought after and award-winning host Luis Manzano, I Can See Your Voice is the first Korean game format localized by the Kapamilya network in partnership with Korea’s CJ E&M.

“What sets us apart is our (brand of) humor that only we Filipinos have. This show is very casual and relaxed. We just want to create an atmosphere wherein you can laugh. There’s no much tension in this show,” says Luis.

Despite the fact that Luis is now a seasoned host, he admitted that he still felt the pressure, especially when the representative of the Korean franchise visited the country.

“He said, ‘In Korea, we have three hosts. Here, we have only you.’ Apparently, in Korea, there’s one host, one comedian, and a singer. Well at least I have done two out of three,” he adds in jest.

I Can See Your Voice features six secret “songers” and a guest star who must guess who among the contestants is a “SEE-nger” (one who can sing) and who among them is a “SEE-ntunado” (one who is tone deaf). To help the guest star make the cut, a group of “SING-vestigators” (Angeline Quinto, Alex Gonzaga, Kean Cipriano, Wacky Kiray and Andrew E) will comment on the performances and give their opinions every round.

For the first round called “Stop, LOOKs and Listen,” the guest star must eliminate one secret “songer” based on how he or she looks. To help the guest star decide, a video profile showing the lives of the secret “songers” plus a very quick preview of their actual singing voice will also be played. 

At the end of the round, the eliminated secret “songer” must step on the “Stage of Truth” and sing live to reveal if he or she is a “SEE-nger” or a “SEE-ntunado.” The eliminated secret “songer” will receive a consolation prize of P5,000.

The game gets tougher in the second round called “The Voice is SYNCHING,” where the five remaining secret “songers” must lipsynch a song. If the secret “songer” is a “SEE-nger,” he/she will lipsynch to his/her own voice and if he/she is a “SEE-ntunado,” he/she will sing along to someone else’s voice. Two contestants must bid goodbye at the end of the round and will receive P10,000 each.

In the final round called “I Like to PROVE it, PROVE it”, the last three secret “songers” will have their last chance to convince the guest star to pick them as the winner. Each one will present a piece of evidence, such as a photograph or a medal, to prove that they can really sing.

The guest star again picks two contestant to eliminate, who will go home with P15,000 each. The last secret “songer” standing will be named winner and gets P25,000 cash, and sing a duet with the guest star. If the winner is a “SEE-nger,” he or she will automatically get to compete in It’s Showtime’s “Tawag ng Tanghalan.”

This week, Gary Valenciano and Lea Salonga try their luck at guessing who the SEE-nger is.  

I Can See Your Voice is a big hit in Korea and has been distributed in many countries worldwide and premieres today and tomorrow on ABS-CBN.
