Tonight’s hashtag! They really didn’t want to go with my “Revelation” idea. Lol. It had to be Discovery. But I’m liking the pace now. We’re moving on to the explosive arc of the story. Hang on to those coffee cups, we can’t always have rainbows and butterflies. The story itself and the amazing actors are worth being glued to our screens. #Repost @micodelrosario ???

CEO Anne also added that the shows will give Thai viewers a new taste of entertainment.
“I trust Jericho, Angel, Maja, Paulo, and JC for their acting and if they can conquer the hearts of Filipino audience, then it wouldn’t be hard for them to also conquer the hearts of Thai viewers,” Anne said.
The two Kapamilya series became hits nationwide as it spurred discussions on marriage and infidelity. Some of their scenes also went viral online as fans created their own parodies and memes of the series.
JKN Global produced Thai soundtracks of both series for Thai audience to easily connect with the dramas, Anne said.
