THE stars of GMA Network's top-rating primetime drama series, One True Love, entertained their Dabawenyo fans Saturday afternoon at The Atrium of Gaisano Mall of Davao.
Led by today's most promising loveteam, Alden Richards and Louise delos Reyes, the Kapuso mall show provided once in a lifetime experience for the fans who personally interacted with their favorite stars.
The Atrium that Saturday afternoon was jam-packed with thousands of fans who cheered for their idols, including veteran actor Raymond Bagatsing, Benjie Paras and Lucho Ayala.
The fans swoon and cheered as Alden and Louise rendered a song number, a proof that indeed the two Kapuso stars have endeared thousands of viewers in this part of the country with their effective and portrayal as Elize and Tisoy in One True Love.
In an interview with Davao-based entertainment writers at Let's Crab Eat on Torres Street, Alden and Louise said the drama series will be extended by five more weeks and a lot of twists in the story will be unveiled.
"More drums of tears," Louise said when asked what viewers can expect from the show in the coming weeks.
"We are now on our 11th week, and Carlos (played by Raymond Bagatsing) will discover that Elize (played by Louise) is not her daughter. He will found out that Tisoy is his real son. Pero siya lang muna ang nakakaalam," Alden, who played the role of Tisoy, said.
Raymond, on the other hand, said he's proud of his co-stars in the show, particularly its lead stars.
"Alden and Louse have their own style...their own way of attacking their roles in the series. They're young, yet very professional," he said.
Due to its phenomenal ratings success over its rival program since it premiered last June 11, GMA Network has announced the five-week extension of the drama series.
Based on household data in National Urban Philippines covering the period July 30 to August 8 (based on overnight data), the program registered 36.1 household audience share points versus ABS-CBN's Kahit Puso'y Masugatan's 27.4 household audience share points.
For the same period in Total Urban Luzon, which makes up 77 percent of total television households nationwide, it led on its timeslot with 40 points compared to competition’s 24.2 points.
In viewer-rich Mega Manila, which comprises 59.5 percent of national urban TV households, it edged out competition with 40.2 share points against competition’s 23.4 points. The series was likewise included in the list of top 30 programs in Urban Luzon and Mega Manila according to July data of Nielsen TV Audience Measurement.
Originally set to run for only 10 weeks, the program will now air up to September this year with more plot twists to be revealed in the succeeding episodes.
Directed by Andoy Ranay, One True Love propelled Alden and Louise to stardom. The two Kapuso stars are now household names and more and more Filipinos are mesmerized to their loveteam.
Viewers are also hooked to the brilliant performances of Jean Garcia, Raymond Bagatsing, and Agot Isidro as they excellently portray their roles in the series together with the other cast members including Caridad Sanchez, Benjie Paras, Tiya Pusit, Wynwyn Marquez, Lucho Ayala, Rita Iringan, Frencheska Farr, and Bembol Roco.
Meanwhile, the story promises to be more compelling especially when Elize's condition worsens and Carlos decides to bring her to the United States to seek medical treatment. To add to his woes, Carlos discovers that Elize is not his real daughter based on the DNA test results. He confronts Ellen and accuses her of infidelity. How will Ellen deal with Carlos' allegations and shocking revelation about Elize’s identity? What will happen to Leila (Agot) if her secret is finally revealed?
Tisoy tells Elize his plans to enroll in secondary school. She is very happy with his achievements and gives him a gift before they part ways. Carlos, on the other hand, learns from Tilda (Caridad) that Tisoy is also dyslexic like him.
