DINGDONG DANTES is being convinced by some quarters to run for public office in next year’s elections but he seems lukewarm in deciding to throw his hat into the political ring. 

Because of the pandemic, Dingdong prefers to just take it easy after “Descendants of the Sun”. There are offers to do a new soap, but he’s not that eager to do lock in taping as of now. 

Because of his kids, Zia and Ziggy, he prefers to stay at home bonding with them most of the time. This is also the very reason why his wife Marian Rivera backed out from “First Yaya” which helped boost Sanya Lopez career to stardom. 

As of now, fans of GMA’s first couple would just have to be content in watching them in the replay of their hit primetime soap, “Endless Love”, starting this Monday on GMA Telebabad. 

“This 2010 series is one of the most memorable shows we’ve done together,” says Dingdong. 

“It’s an adaptation of the Koreanovela, ‘Autumn in My Heart’, and when we did it 10 years ago, nag-click talaga nang husto sa viewers so we're glad na ipalalabas uli ito.”

"Endless Love” follows the story of Johnny (Dingdong) and Jenny (Marian) who grew up as siblings under the care of their parents Robert (Tirso Cruz III) and Katherine (Sandy Andolong). Johnny loves his sister very much and is very protective of her. 

Their lives turn upside down when they find out that the true daughter of Katherine is Shirley (Nadine Samonte), the poor and resentful classmate of Jenny. 

Jenny decides to run away upon learning this, while Johnny and his family opt to live abroad. 

Years later, Jenny grows up to be the lovely and kind-hearted young lady who crosses paths with the conceited hotel owner named Andrew (Dennis Trillo), who falls for Jenny's charms and tells his balikbayan best friend Johnny that he has found the woman of his dreams. 

And this is how Jenny and Johnny are reunited. But by then, Johnny is already engaged to Yumi (Bela Padilla).

Will Johnny and Jenny now admit that their affection for each other is deeper than just familial love? And what is the big secret that Jenny has been keeping from the people who love her? 

Also in the cast are Kathryn Bernardo as the young Jenny, Kristoffer Martin as the young Johnny, Joyce Ching as the young Shirley, plus Janice de Belen, Gabby Eigenmann, and Kuh Ledesma. Don’t miss the rewind of “Endless Love” on GMA Telebabad starting this Monday at 8:50 PM.
