The series marks Gina’s return to TV acting after focusing on directing TV shows for the longest time. Her last acting stint was in Luna Blanca aired in 2012.
This is also Assunta de Rossi’s return to the Kapuso network after starring in several ABS-CBN teleseryes since she transferred in 2003.
It can be remembered that Assunta’s transfer from GMA-7 to ABS-CBN became controversial because the Kapuso Network was already grooming her to be a major leading lady when she topbilled the afternoon series Hawak Ko Ang Langit.
However, she decided to transfer to ABS-CBN to do the shows Buttercup and Vietnam Rose.
Assunta's last TV appearance was in the recently-concluded teleserye You’re My Home.
Buboy Villar and Starstruck 6 Avengers Liezel Lopez and James Teng will also be part of this drama series to be directed by Mark Dela Cruz.
On James's Instagram post (@iamjamesteng), he gave a hint about this new fantasy-themed series.
Juancho also posted a picture of him with his leading lady Louise in his Instagram account (@juanchotrivino).
A netizen commented that the title of the Juancho and Louise telefantasya is Ang Boyfriend Kong Duwende.
Maricar de Mesa also posted a character sketch on her Instagram account (@msmaricardemesa).
This will be the first time that Louise and Juancho will be working together as love team partners.
Louise was first paired with Derrick Monasterio in the Sunday youth-oriented show Tween Hearts.
When she got her big break in the afternoon series Alakdana, she was paired with Paulo Avelino and Alden Richards.
Louise’s tandem with Alden spawned three more shows: My Beloved, One True Love, and Mundo Mo’y Akin.
In 2014, their tandem broke apart and Louise topbilled the telefantasya Kambal Sirena alongside Aljur Abrenica.
Last year, she got a supporting role in My Faithful Husband wherein she played Jennylyn Mercado’s younger sister.
Recently, Louise launched her own blogsite loudelosreyes.com.
On the other hand, Juancho started in the youth-oriented series Teen Gen in 2012 where he was cast as Bobby Andrews’s son.
He was launched as a kontrabida in the 2013 remake of Villa Quintana as the cousin of Janine Gutierrez.
He also got an important role in the youth-oriented show InstaDAD and was paired with Ash Ortega.
His last TV series was GMA’s top-rating series Little Nanay wherein he played Kris Bernal’s protective brother.
Just recently, he was launched as a TV host and given his own segment in the Kapuso morning show Unang Hirit.
The afternoon drama series Magkaibang Mundo is scheduled to air soon on GMA’s Afternoon Prime block.
