After their successful reunion in the afternoon TV drama Sinenovela Presents: Paano Ba Ang Mangarap?, a follow-up project for erstwhile lovers Mark Herras and Jennylyn Mercado is definitely in order.
This September, GMA-7 teams them up anew in the upcoming primetime soap titled Ikaw Sana,to replace All My Life, which airs weeknights before 24 Oras.
With their chemistry still in high gear, Mark and Jennylyn are very vocal in saying that they're more than ready to reignite their onscreen tandem in this newest original masterpiece.
Pauleen Luna—who was also once linked with Mark Herras—joins them as Mark's other love interest in the story. Incidentally, Ikaw Sana also serves as a reunion for the three lead stars with director Joel C. Lamangan, who was their director in the 2005 Metro Manila Film Fest best picture, Blue Moon.
Aside from Sinenovela Presents: Paano Ba Ang Mangarap Mark and Jennylyn were also part of the cast of I Luv NY, La Vendetta, Encantadia, Dear Friend, among others. Needless to say, both have gone a long way since they were proclaimed winners of GMA-7's artista search way back in 2004.
Separately though, they have made names for themselves in their respective fields of interest other than acting—Mark as an excellent dancer, while Jennylyn, on the other hand, as an emerging concert diva.Ikaw Sana is an original production by GMA-7.
