‘Destined to Be Yours’ to test AlDub popularity – TV series starring Alden Richards, Maine Mendoza to start airing next week


MANILA – Whether or not the pair of Alden Richard and Maine Mendoza, known as “AlDub”, is still popular will be known once their daily drama series “Destined to Be Yours” on GMA Channel 7 premieres next week.

How “Destined to Be Yours” will fare in the ratings will surely be something to watch out for.

“AlDub” was widely popular among Filipinos in a love story segment of the noontime show “Eat Bulaga” on Channel 7.

Richards has more experience than Mendoza when it comes to TV soap operas, popularly called as “teleseryes” in the Philippines, as he already did a few of them. The last time Richards did a soap opera was in 2014 – the historical drama “Ilustrado”.

Mendoza, who is used to being spontaneous in the love story segment on “Eat Bulaga”, has not done any daily TV series and has admitted she is still trying to get the hang of memorizing scripts.

Mendoza said she is not pressured when it comes to acting in “Destined to Be Yours” as she expects that there will always be people who will say something negative about her and her acting.

“Destined to Be Yours” will have Richards play Benjie, an architect seeking to acquire a piece of land owned by the family of Sinag (played by Mendoza), who is a radio jock and environmental activist. GAC/Expat Media
