Mara Clara (2010)
This remake of the '90s classic has catapulted Kathryn Bernardo (Mara) and Julia Montes (Clara) into stardom. It can be considered as their coming-of-age acting project. Originally played by Judy Ann Santos and Gladys Reyes, respectively, Mara and Clara are exact opposites of each other, but it turns out that they are switched at birth.
My Husband's Lover
A groundbreaking teleserye, this fearless drama explores the themes of homosexuality. Tom Rodriguez and Carla Abellana play a married couple rocked by infidelity when Tom's character starts an affair with Dennis Trillo's. My Husband's Lover has caused an uproar because of its controversial plot and, more importantly, has gotten people talking about LGBT issues.
Sana'y Wala Nang Wakas
This roundup isn't complete without a teleserye topbilled by Kristine Hermosa and Jericho Rosales. In this drama, they play estranged lovers whose families share a painful past. Both fall in love with other people, but destiny brings them back together.
The Rich Man's Daughter
Like My Husband's Lover, this teleserye tackles homosexuality as well. An heiress (Rhian Ramos), who's engaged to her longtime boyfriend, falls in love with her wedding coordinator (Glaiza de Castro). The "rich man," her father, offers P100 million to the man who can make her go straight.
Literally a teleserye with style, this drama gives an inside look at the Philippine fashion industry, where the characters of Gretchen Barretto and Bea Alonzo are major players and fierce rivals. In a twist of fate, they turn out to be closely related.
Villa Quintana (2013)
This teleserye is inspired by Romeo and Juliet and tells the tragic tale of young lovers from different social classes. Elmo Magalona plays Keempee de Leon's role, while Janine Gutierrez plays that of Donna Cruz in this remake of the '90s hit.
Throw in a Coco Martin and Julia Montes pairing with an onscreen reunion of Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta, and you get a timeless primetime hit that can make you believe in undying love that spans generations.
