After experiencing "technical difficulties," ABS-CBN finally aired the episode of Be Careful With My Heart featuring a kiss between lead stars Richard Yap and Jodi Sta. Maria.
Last June 27, the daytime teleserye was cut short, disappointing viewers who were expecting to see the first kiss on the lips of Sir Chief (Richard) and Maya (Jodi).
An advisory was flashed onscreen: "Due to technical difficulties, today's episode of 'Be Careful With My Heart' will be shown tomorrow [June 28]."
The said episode featured a date between the widower and his former nanny. Sir Chief and Maya, who are now in a relationship, had a slow dance during their date. Sir Chief drops off his flight attendant girlfriend at her home but before he leaves, he gives her a kiss on the lips.
For this year's Metro Manila Film Festival, the movie version of Be Careful With My Heart will be one of the competing entries.
Director Jeffrey Jeturian revealed details about the said MMFF entry in a Journal article published by movie scribe Mario Bautista on June 28.
“We’ll end Book One with the wedding of Maya and Sir Chief. Then we’ll start Book Two with their life as husband and wife. At tatakbo 'yung hanggang just before the movie opens in theatres on Christmas Day.
"The movie version is not a recap of what happened on TV. Alam na ng mga tao yun, e. What we’ll show is what happens to Jodi Sta. Maria, Richard Yap, and the rest of the characters after the story on TV has ended. Bale continuation 'yun ng TV show,” Direk Jeffrey was quoted as saying in the article.
