Magkaagaw is Polo's comeback teleserye in GMA-7 after he transferred to ABS-CBN in 2015.

Polo started his career with VIVA Artists Agency in 1996, via the youth-oriented series TGIS. He was first paired with Chantal Umali, and later, with Sunshine Dizon.

While working on TGIS and another show, Anna Karenina, love blossomed between Polo and Sunshine. They became a couple for four years.

In 2001, Polo and Sunshine parted ways in their projects when Sunshine started doing lead kontrabida roles in teleseryes.

Polo, on the other hand, was given supporting roles in TV shows such as Ang Iibigin Ay Ikaw and its sequel, Ang Iibigin Ay Ikaw Pa Rin, in 2002.

In 2005, Polo worked again with Sunshine in Now and Forever: Agos and Encantadia.

Polo and Sunshine's characters were involved in Agos, but Polo played third wheel to Dingdong Dantes and Karylle in Encantadia.

In 2008, Polo was promoted to leading man status when he was tapped to play the lead role in Maging Akin Ka Lamang, together with Nadine Samonte. Polo and Nadine replaced Patrick Garcia and Jennylyn Mercado in the project, after Jennylyn got pregnant.

Polo also played major roles in teleseryes like Sinner or Saint (2011), Hiram na Puso (2012), Unforgettable (2013), and Kambal Sirena (2014).

In 2015, after 19 years, Polo did a project with ABS-CBN for the first time, via FPJ's Ang Probinsyano.

He also became a part of Doble Kara, Wansapanataym, and La Luna Sangre.

In a 2016 interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) while doing Doble Kara, Polo aired his disappointment because he said GMA-7 failed to give him a follow-up project after Kambal Sirena in 2014.

Polo said he started to doubt himself at the time. He said back then, "For myself, yes, for myself.

"Parang, 'Bakit hindi ako nabibigyan ng TV show sa GMA? Hindi naman ako naging pasaway, I think I can act.'

"Character, bigyan mo ako ng kontrabida, kaya ko; bigyan mo ako ng bida role, kaya ko naman.

"Nagtataka ako sa sarili ko. Actually, more of sa sarili ko, kung bakit."

Polo was able to make a Kapuso comeback this 2019, when he first appeared in an episode of the drama anthology show Tadhana.
