Dubbed as ABS-CBN Channel 2’s first ‘teleserye’ that changed the viewing habits of Philippine televiewers—Olive M. Lamasan’s ‘Pangako Sa ‘Yo’ will return on air for a remake starting tonight, May 25, replacing the timeslot of ‘Forevermore’. The 2000-2002 series back then had Kristine Hermosa and Jericho Rosales in the lead roles.
Its remake will feature the hottest teen tandem in both Philippine television and silver screen—Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla as Yna Macaspac and Angelo Buenavista, respectively. The two warring women which were popularized by Eula Valdez and Jean Garcia as Amor de Jesus-Powers and Madame Claudia Zalameda-Buenavista will be assumed by both Jodi Sta. Maria and Angelica Panganiban. Meanwhile, the former character of Tonton Gutierrez will be taken by Ian Veneracion as Gove. Eduardo Buenavista. Though a Filipino type of soap opera, the Shakespearean plot of Romeo and Juliet love story holds dear and captures the hearts of the drama-driven televiewers. The series promises intense and heart-tugging scenes involving the characters. ‘Pangako sa ‘Yo’ is developed by Malou N. Santos, Des M. de Guzman, and Henry King Quitain; written by Generiza Reyes, Ceres Helga Barrios, and Adam Cornelius Asin. Olivia M. Lamasan, Rory B. Quintos, and Dado C. Lumibao will be alternating as directors. Its first version gained high popularity in more than 20 countries, including China, Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia. Cambodian Television Network (CTN) even bought its format from ABS-CBN in 2012 and created a localized version of the said series. Watch the trailer here:
