Yam Concepcion is set to make a TV comeback via the upcoming ABS-CBN teleserye Love Thy Woman.

Kim Chiu and Xian Lim top-bill this Kapamilya series about modern Filipino-Chinese families. In this show, Yam is cast as the wife of Xian's character. Their marriage is tested because of her half-sister, who is played by Kim.

Yam was last seen in the 2018 teleserye Halik where she played Jade, an adulterous wife.

"Dito naman medyo bida-kontrabida siya. Joke! Ayoko naman pangunahan. Kasi di pa naman natin alam kung ano mangyayari doon sa story," Yam was quoted as saying in an interview with PUSH.

Yam reveals that, to get into the world of high society, she binge-watched on the YouTube videos of Heart Evangelista, who belongs to the rival Kapuso station.

"Kasi, di ba, yung role ko dito mayaman, sosyal, bratty. Well, si Heart hindi naman bratty. Pero tinitingnan ko yung mga nuances niya, like how she talks, ganun."

Heart started her career in ABS-CBN in 2000 before transferring to GMA-7 in 2008.

ABS-CBN is set to air Love Thy Woman in early 2020.
