Astounding and truly exciting! ABS-CBN's newest and most exciting Primetime Bida Teleserye,"Dahil Sa Pagibig" celebrity screening made me cry and laugh while I reminisce my own infatuation back in high school. Raised in catholic school,it would always be an ordinary yet unforgettable experience admiring seminarians. Starring Piolo Pascual, Cristine Reyes, Cristopher De Leon, Maricar Reyes and Jericho Rosales, "Dahil Sa Pag-big" is a story of unending twists and circumstances anyone will empathize.
Also starring Ronaldo Valdez, Sandy Andolong, Tetchie Agbayani, Rafael Rosell, Denise Laurel, Freddie Webb, Rey PJ Abellana, Carla Martinez, Joonee Gamboa, Bing Davao, Melissa Mendez, Malou Crisologo, Jeffrey Santos and Edward Mendez with the Special Participation of Joel Torre; introducing young teen stars Ella Cruz and Francis Maguindayao,it is a story tackling politics, relevant issues such as mining, family conflicts and more importantly, adoption and trauma. I was witness during the announcement shoot when they used to call it "Nang Dahil Sa Pag-ibig" to "Dahil Sa Pag-ibig" and I was speechless after watching the first week episode of this teleserye directed by Darnel Villaflor and Avel Sunpongco.
I can't help but cry the whole time because every struggle Piolo (playing Alfred Valderama) had to go through was just so unimaginable for a mother. Piolo Pascual was as convincing as his character being so meek and so religious while Cristine Reyes (playing Jasmin Valderama) also seemed effortless playing the princess turned damsel-in-distress. It was interesting how ABS-CBN have come up with a teleserye that truly fits the personality of their characters. What I truly want to find out in the next episodes are the particular circumstances the community, their family and the story will be affected with Leo Valderama's (Cristopher De Leon) mining industry. I can't wait to watch what will happen next and I am sure you will too. I recommend watching "Dahil Sa Pagibig" to all teens who also may have or may have not yet had infatuation with seminarians and to all moms who have appreciation of their children's efforts. Those who are also into politics may have interest in the issue of mining being featured in this teleserye. I will also never want to miss the little boy playing Piolo (not Francis Maguindayao) because he looks really angelic and effortless as his character.
