06 May Why We’re Excited for the ‘Pangako Sa’yo’ – Remake
JUAN SAYS: As a child, nights were spent watching Jericho Rosales and Kristine Hermosa cry for each other on screen. It was the teleserye that launched them as the IT power couple of the Philippines while the iconic roles of Eula Valdez and Jean Garcia will always be remembered. Looking back on old Pangako Sayo Clips will forever be nostalgic, so it was quite surprising when a remake was announced revealing today’s top stars Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernado as frontrunners alongside Angelica Panganiban and Jodi Sta. Maria.
The first trailer was enough to send us into overdrive (ang pogi kasi talaga ni Ian Veneracion forever!) and got us excited to see the iconic teleserye remade to fit today’s modern world. To be honest, the trailer made us forget about the first teleserye, it was as if we were discovering a new side to it that we didn’t see before. Most of us are also older from the last time the teleserye was shown so it’s possible to see it with a fresh set of eyes.
What we’re most excited about is the coming of age of the modern day Amor Powers as portrayed by Jodi Sta Maria. Watching the teleserye as a child also left me seeing Amor Powers as an evil spawn without realizing that she has a story too. Jodi makes her look human and I’m excited to discover the pain of a villain and how she manages to rise above it. We are excited to see the individual stories of each character and how it was woven to a big teleserye such as this.
