Will two people’s love and commitment endure the struggles that drove them apart in order to love each other again?
Find out how far a person will go in the name of love and sacrifice in ABS-CBN’s newest primetime drama series “The Story of Us,” which features the awaited and highly anticipated comeback of Kim Chiu and Xian Lim – one of today’s biggest love teams on television.
According to Xian, who expressed how he misses working with Kim, “These are more mature roles for me and Kim. It revolves around their love story and how they will keep their love despite having different priorities in their lives.”
Kim added, “It’s not a normal story that starts out with us not getting along like cats and dogs. We already love each other from the start.”
This year also marks Kim’s tenth anniversary in showbiz, even made more special by her return to television.
“I’m so excited because I took a break from TV for a year, so this feels new to me again. It’s also my first time to shoot a teleserye outside of the Philippines,” she said.
Since Kim and Xian’s tandem was introduced in “My Binondo Girl,” they have become one of the most sought-after love teams “Ina, Kapatid, Anak” and movies “Bakit Hindi Ka Crush Ng Crush Mo?” “Past Tense,” and “Bride for Rent,” one of the highest-grossing Filipino films of all time. KimXi also starred in “Must Date the Playboy,” the first-ever film made by ABS-CBNmobile’s StarFlix exclusively for mobile devices.
“Thanks to everyone who continue to support us and those who stuck with us. I give all of myself and my soul to all of my projects, especially here in ‘The Story of Us,’” said Xian.
In “The Story of Us,” Tin (Kim) and Macoy (Xian) are childhood best friends-turned-lovers who grow up together in El Nido, Palawan and will dream of a better life for them and their family.
But circumstances will drive them apart when Tin goes to the United States to meet her estranged mother.
Away from each other, they are forced to make it on their own, driving them further apart until their relationship crumbles.
They meet each other five years later in New York, only to discover each other’s differences that crushed everything they had built together.
With all the changes that happened to them as individuals, will they still be able to find a second chance at love? Will their love for each other survive despite life changing them?
Also included in the cast of “The Story of Us,” helmed by acclaimed director Richard Somes, are some of the most respected actors in the country – Aiko Melendez, Gardo Versoza, Susan Africa, and Zsa Zsa Padilla. Joining them are Bryan Santos, Mara Lopez, Alyanna Angeles as the young batang Tin, and Zaijian Jaranilla as the young Macoy.
