The primetime series is based on the similar titled Korean hit TV series and has been showing on TV5 for more than two weeks now. But in tonight's episode at 9:30pm, the young Tag Ku grows up to be reprised by heartthrob Mark Neumann in much anticipation of his fans and followers of the tv series.

Baker King Press Conference

In a press conference yesterday at the iconic landmark and 76-year old Kamuning Bakery in Quezon City, Mark showcased his baking skills live in front of the media-filled bakery. He demonstrated how to prepare and bake pandesal with 'love'. He took up some lessons months ago in baking in preparation for his lead role in Baker King.

When asked about his favorite breads, he shared that Pandesal, Pan de Coco, and Spanish Bread are  his top three favorties.

Kilig Prince or Baker King?

Budding from his Wattpad series, Baker King is Mark Neumann's biggest break to date as he jumps from 'kilig' roles to something more serious.

In fact, some of the scenes that viewers will witness tonight and in the next episodes would involve action scenes that took hours to tape in pursuit of making the execution flawless to deliver quality soap for Baker King followers.

He also took physical trainings in order to prepare for his fight scenes.

When Showbiz Manila interviewed Mark Neumann yesterday asking how he would handle criticisms and comparisons to the original Korean Baker King TV series, he answered that he is not that worried since this Filipino version would have its own approach and Pinoy touch that would appeal to the Filipino viewers.
