At the heart of GMA-7's latest afternoon offering is the against-all-odds romance between the sheltered Geneva De Villa (Bianca King) who comes from a well-off clan, and the kind-hearted, winsome Kiko Sebastian (Rafael Rosell), who comes from a middle-class family. Maghihintay Pa Rin narrates the story of their fated love and the odds that the two try to beat, including social status and their conflicting families.
Thematically speaking, the soap discusses the plight of the OFW in the character of Kiko. The leading man will painstakingly decide to work abroad to bring food to the table and to earn money for his ailing mother. The distance between Kiko and Geneva will come into play and ultimately test their love each other.
Maghihintay Pa Rin, directed by Don Michael Perez, also stars Dion Ignacio, Ayen Muji-Laurel, Tanya Gomez, JC Tiuseco, Diva Montelaba, Julie Lee, Lou Sison, Daniella Amable, and Sachi Manahan. It premieres on June 10, Monday, on GMA-7's Afternoon Prime.
