GMA Kapuso brings for the first time on its noble advocacy to help spread HIV awareness a heartwarming teleserye "Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka". Starring Yasmien Kurdi, Mike Tan, Jackie Rice and Martin Del Rosario, "Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka" narrates the plight of a woman with HIV and her struggles. We joined fellow bloggers watching the first week episodes with the cast and director Milo Alto Paz yesterday. The fast pace of the story lets you feel the pain of Thea Balagtas (Yasmien).
We all hated Lawrence (Martin) and loved Marco (Mike) . Gina Alajar as Adelaida Angeles was one character difficult to miss with lines and scenes sure to strike anger among Kapuso viewers. Joining Ms Gina Alajar are Shamaine Buencamino as Thea's mom Magda, Charee Pineda as Thea's older sister Anna Balagtas, Ina Feleo as Marco's older sister Sofia Angeles, Mike "Pekto" Nacua as Thea's cousin Tantoy Cruz, Catherine Rem as Olga Cruz (Thea's cousin), Caprice Cayetano as Angela and Seth Dela Cruz as Maurice (fraternal twins of Marco and Thea). Directed by Neal Del Rosario, Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka was from the creative team of Creative Director Roy Iglesias;Concept Creator Zita Garganera; Headwriter Suzette Doctolero; Creative Head for Afternoon Prime Block Dode Cruz and Creative Consultant Kit Langit. What's most significant other than the story and the performance is the reality that how we all claim awareness, how we treat people inflicted with a particular disease, says a lot about the type of society we have today-ruthless and damaging. What will happen to Thea? Let us all tune in starting Monday at GMA afternoons right after The StepDaughters.
