Bianca King, Dion Ignacio to star in new afternoon soap on GMA-7
Kapuso actress Bianca King and hunk actor Dion Ignacio will team up in a new afternoon soap tentatively titled, "Hindi Kita Iiwan." The program is set to replace the currently airing "Bukod Kang Pinagpala" and will premiere on June 10 (Monday).
In the story, Bianca portrays the role of a hotel manager (Her family actually owns the hotel), while Dion is a lowly bellboy. The two fall in love with each other despite the disapproval of Bianca's affluent family.
Being the breadwinner of his family, Dion's character seeks for greener pastures abroad, leaving behind his girlfriend Bianca. While abroad, Dion will experience tough times and worse, he will be implicated in a crime that will land him in jail. His sentence will be commuted (shortened) and eventually, he will be set free and will return to the Philippines.
Unfortunately, when he returned to the Philippines, the love of his life (Bianca) is already happily married to a rich young businessman. How will he survive this ordeal? Find that out soon in "Hindi Kita Iiwan."
This afternoon series is Bianca King latest since "Luna Blanca," and is Dion's second soap where he plays the lead role.
According to sources inside the Kapuso Network, the production heads are yet to finalize which kapuso actor will play the role of Bianca's husband, the character that will complete the love triangle.
There are also talks of shooting scenes outside of the country, most probably Cambodia. Cambodia's largest broadcasting network is said to be in talks with GMA Network for a possible partnership specifically for this series
