Ken Chan's Transformation Into A Full Woman Makes The Ratings Of 'Destiny Rose' Zoom Higher

KEN CHAN is overwhelmed by the good feedback he’s getting after his transformation from man to transwoman in “Destiny Rose”. “Nakakatuwa kasi nag-trending talaga kami after lumabas na ako bilang isang babae,” he says.

He’s in a love affair with Fabio Ide in the story. Would he now consider having a relationship with someone of the same gender in the future? “Definitely no. Maraming ganoon ang iniisip, na closeta talaga ako, but I know myself. I’m secure with my gender. After each scene na babae ako, nakakabitaw ako agad sa character ko. Alam ng girlfriend ko yan, who’s very supportive sa pagiging transwoman ko. Alam naman niyang it’s all for ‘Destiny Rose’ lang. Siya pa nga yung nagtuturo sa’kin kung paano ang tamang paglalagay ng eye-liner. She’s so amused at natatawa siya but she remains very supportive.”

This week in “Destiny Rose”, Ken as Destiny Rose now lives in the home of her benefactor, Michael de Mesa as Armani and this angers Armani’s sister a lot, Irma Adlawan as Bethilda, who has no inkling that Destiny is the same gay Joey she used to maltreat. Jeric Gonzales as Vince didn’t recognize Ken as a woman but he says their friendship will remain the same.

Fabio as Gabriele gets to read the books written by Destiny and he notices that some of the lines in it are the same as those that were written to her by Jasmine before. He reminds these lines to Katrina Halili as Jasmine (who pretends to be Ken) but she doesn’t remember any of them. So Fabio tells her that he is postponing their wedding. He attends Destiny’s book signing affair to meet the author in person but Destiny can’t bear to face him and hides in the restroom. While shopping later, Destiny meets Katrina, who doesn’t recognize her as Joey. Meantime, Joey’s mom and sister, Manilyn Reynes and Sheena Halili, both grieve when they heard the news that Joey has died when a boat sank in the sea.
