JENNYLYN MERCADO will be seen this Friday night in the finale of “Truly. Madly. Deadly” in GMA-7’s “I Can See You” drama anthology. 

By Monday, October 26, she will be seen anew in the continuation of her internationally-acclaimed series, “Descendants of the Sun Ph", whose telecast was disrupted by the pandemic. 

“Abangan nyo ang last episode ng ‘Truly. Madly. Deadly’ this Friday night dahil pasabog talaga ito,” says Jen.  

“Madugo ang climax at salamat sa mga nakagusto sa story, lalo na sa kissing namin ni Rhian Ramos na isang lesbian ang role dito. At sa Monday naman, abangan nyo ang pagbabalik ng ‘DOTS’ namin ni Dingdong Dantes na matagal nang kinasasabikan ng viewers who keep on asking us kung kailan ang balik nina Big Boss and Beauty.”

The return of ‘DOTS’ this Monday will start with a review of past episodes to refresh viewers with the events that happened before the pandemic intervened in our lives. 

This will go on for more than one week and the fresh new episodes taped on a lock in setup in Tanay will start on November 5. The show will also stream live on Netflix starting November 13. 

GMA issued an official statement about this: “DOTS is the first GMA program to be streamed on Netflix. The local adaptation of the well-loved South Korean drama of the same title will soon be available on the popular streaming site in the Philippines.

“The 65-episode series will be streamed on Netflix on eight consecutive Fridays beginning Nov. 13, 2020. 

Headlined by two of the biggest names on Philippine TV – Kapuso Primetime King Dingdong Dantes and Ultimate Star Jennylyn Mercado – the series revolves on the fickle love story of Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Special Forces Captain Lucas Manalo a.k.a. ‘Big Boss’ and cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Maxine Dela Cruz, or ‘Beauty’.

“With both of them having dangerous and demanding jobs, timing was never on their side. But the more they tried to distance themselves from one another, the more that fate found a way to bring Lucas and Maxine together – surviving and making it through one disaster after another.

“Last August, Descendants of the Sun Philippines brought honor to the country as the first local TV program to receive the Most Popular Foreign Drama of the Year award in the 15th Seoul International Drama Awards. 

Its lead actor, Dingdong Dantes, was also awarded the prestigious Asian Star Prize in the same annual global festival.

“Descendants of the Sun Philippines premiered on February 10, but production was temporarily suspended due to the restrictions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. Relive the story of Big Boss and Beauty in Descendants of the Sun Philippines streaming this Nov. 13 on Netflix Philippines.”
