Showbiz royalties Julia Barretto and Iñigo Pascual will be paired up for the first time in the upcoming romantic drama episode of ABS-CBN’s “Maalaala Mo Kaya” this Saturday (November 29). They will play the roles of close friends Karen and Christian.
With her father’s strict upbringing, Karen promises herself that she will never disobey her parents and will never be in love. But her world turns around when she meets and befriends Christian—her first love. But since she is afraid to confess her real feelings for Christian, Karen finds contentment in writing her emotions and messages of love in her diary.
Will Christian discover Karen’s well-kept secret? What will Karen do once she discovers that her first love is already committed to someone else?
Also part of Julia and Iñigo’s first TV team-up are Epi Quizon, Arlene Muhlach, Claire Ruiz, Ina Estrada, Celine Lim, Chienna Filomena, and Trina Legaspi. It is under the direction of Raz de la Torre and written by Benjamin Benson Logronio and Arah Jell Badayos.
“MMK” is led by business unit head Malou Santos and creative manager Mel Mendoza-del Rosario.
Capturing the hearts of Filipino viewers all over the world for the past 23 years, “Maalaala Mo Kaya” has legions of fans from different generations who cried, laughed, fell in love, and got inspired through the real-life narratives of the show’s letter-senders.
