How far would you go to be with the one you truly love? Does love know how to surrender? Can love defy fate and time? Is there an end to love? On June 28, the answers to these questions will be unveiled as the most-awaited local adaptation of the first successful Korean series on Philippine TV begins.
In line with its 60th anniversary celebration, GMA Network offers Endless Love, which features the highly anticipated primetime TV reunion of the most sought-after love team in the country – Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera.
The phenomenal loveteam of Dingdong and Marian first became popular in Marimar. They followed up this big hit with another successful series, Dyesebel. The two were last seen together on primetime in Ang Babaeng Hinugot Sa Aking Tadyang. This year, Dingdong and Marian are back together as they are set to breathe life to the well-loved lead characters of Johnny and Jenny in Endless Love.
The Kapuso Network’s latest offering also features award-winning actor Dennis Trillo who plays the equally important role of Andrew. Kapuso homegrown artist Nadine Samonte, meanwhile, will portray the antagonist character of Shirley.
Other cast members include a grand ensemble of the industry’s well-respected artists led by Tirso Cruz III, Sandy Andolong, Janice de Belen together with Bernard Palanca, Marco Alcaraz, Gabby Eigenmann, Ces Quesada, Jana Dominguez, Mosang, Bela Padilla and Ms. Kuh Ledesma in a very special role.
Endless Love also introduces three young stars who went through a series of auditions before bagging significant roles in the series. The three showbiz neophytes are Joyce Ching as the young Shirley, Kristoffer Martin as the young Johnny and Kathryn Bernardo as the young Jenny.
Mac Alejandre directs the series, which tells a compelling love story filled with twists and hapless situations that will make the viewers’ tears fall every night.
Lead characters Johnny (Dingdong) and Jenny (Marian) are siblings from a well-off family. They are sheltered and are genuinely loved by their parents Robert (Tirso Cruz III) and Katherine (Sandy Andolong). Johnny loves his sister and is very protective of Jenny, who loves her brother as much.
The perfect and happy lives of Johnny and Jenny turn topsy-turvy when an accident leads their family to discover an incident from the past. The family learns there was a case of baby switching in the hospital the day Jenny was born. They discover that Robert and Katherine’s real daughter is Shirley, the poor, mean and resentful classmate of Jenny.
The lives of Jenny and Shirley are dramatically reversed in an instant. Jenny wants to stay but Shirley keeps pushing her to leave the family she loves so much. Hurting, the weak-willed Jenny decides to run away. Even when Johnny and his family invite Jenny to live with them abroad, Jenny opts to stay with her hostile biological mother Suzy (Janice de Belen) and good-for-nothing brother Jojo (Gabby Eigenmann).
Jenny grows up to be a simple, beautiful and kind-hearted young lady. She works in a hotel resort as a housekeeping staff where she meets Andrew (Dennis Trillo), the conceited and naughty son of the hotel owner gets smitten by Jenny’s charm and beauty.
Andrew does everything to get Jenny’s attention. He soon realizes that Jenny is slowly changing him. The former inconsiderate wealthy guy proudly shares to his bestfriend that he has found the woman he truly loves.
Conflict arises when Johnny returns from abroad to search for his beloved sister Jenny. Soon, the two long lost siblings reunite. Will Johnny and Jenny finally admit that the love they feel for each other is more than just familial love?
But what will these ill-fated lovers do when reality unfurls – that Johnny is the bestfriend of Andrew, who is head over heels in love with Jenny. And although he will fight for the love of his life, Johnny is engaged to his girlfriend Yumi (Bela Padilla). Andrew, on the other hand, is being pursued by Jenny’s archrival, Shirley.
What will happen to the intertwined loves and lives of Johnny, Jenny and Andrew? Who will be the best man to win the heart of Jenny? And what is this secret that Jenny has been keeping from the people who love her?
Kapuso gems Dingdong Dantes, Marian Rivera and Dennis Trillo star in a chronicle of unwavering love that may either lead to a long-lasting happiness or an eternal heartbreak in Endless Love beginning June 28 on GMA Telebabad.
