In line with its 60th anniversary celebration, GMA-7 offers a local adaptation of the popular Korean series, Endless Love.
Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes are reunited after appearing in their previous teleserye Ang Babaeng Hinugot sa Aking Tadyang (2009) and their 2010 movie You To Me Are Everything.
Marian is cast as Jenny, a role originally played by Korean actress Song Hye Kyo. Meanwhile, Dingdong plays Johnny, a character first portrayed by Korean actor Song Seung Heun. Dennis Trillo and Nadine Samonte are cast as Andrew and Shirley, two people who hinder the love story of Jenny and Johnny.
Mac Alejandre directs this Kapuso series, which will air starting June 28 right after Pilyang Kerubin.
This primetime series will introduce viewers to three young stars who successfully auditioned for their roles in Endless Love. These are Kathryn Bernardo (the young Jenny), Kristoffer Martin (the young Johnny) and Joyce Ching (the young Shirley).
SYNOPSIS. Endless Love revolves around Johnny and Jenny. Both of them grew up as siblings under the care of their parents Robert (Tirso Cruz III) and Katherine (Sandy Andolong). Johnny loves his sister very much and is very protective of her.
Their lives are discrupted when they find out that there was a case of baby switching in the hospital on the day that Jenny was born. They discover that the true daughter is Shirley, the poor, mean and resentful classmate of Jenny.
The lives of Jenny and Shirley are dramatically reversed in an instant. Jenny wants to stay but Shirley keeps pressuring her to leave. The weak-willed Jenny decides to run away and stay with her hostile biological mother Suzy (Janice de Belen) and her good-for-nothing brother Jojo (Gabby Eigenmann). Meanwhile, Johnny and his family opt to live abroad.
Years later, Jenny (Marian) grows up to be a simple, beautiful and kind-hearted young lady. She works as a chambermaid in a hotel resort. She meets a conceited and naughty hotel owner named Andrew (Dennis Trillo) who gets smitten by Jenny's charm and beauty.
Andrew does everything to get Jenny's attention. He soon realizes that Jenny is slowly changing him for the better. The guy proudly tells his best friend that he has found the woman he truly loves.
It turns out that Johnny (Dingdong) is the best friend of Andrew. Johnny returns from abroad to look for his beloved sister and after many years of separation, the "siblings" reunite. Will Johnny and Jenny admit that the affection that they feel for each other is deeper than just familial love?
Although Johnny is already engaged to his fiancée Yumi (Bela Padilla), he is bent on fighting for the love of his life. Andrew, on the other hand, is being pursued by Jenny's archrival Shirley (Nadine).
What will happen to the intertwined lives of Johnny, Jenny and Andrew? Who will win the heart of Jenny? And what is the secret that Jenny has been keeping from the people who love her?
Watch Kapuso stars Dingdong Dantes, Marian Rivera, Dennis Trillo, and Nadine Samonte star in a love story that may either lead to a long-lasting happiness or eternal heartbreak in Endless Love beginning this Monday, June 28, on GMA Telebabad.
