GMA-7 offers an intriguing but no less heartrending addition to its unbeatable afternoon drama block with "Kasalanan Bang Ibigin Ka?" The program will air beginning June 4, Monday, after Hiram na Puso on GMA Afternoon Prime.
Starring Geoff Eigenmann, Jennica Garcia and Jackie Rice, Kasalanan Bang Ibigin Ka? follows a compelling storyline that explores how bonds between family members are put to the test in the face of love. It also features Michael de Mesa, Angelika dela Cruz, Bobby Andrews, and Sharmaine Arnaiz together with Bubbles Paraiso, Diego Castro, and Pancho Magno.
"Kasalanan Bang Ibigin Ka? is deliciously daring and sinfully addicting," described its director Mr. Mark Reyes. "It's very exciting to see real life father and son Michael de Mesa and Geoff Eigenmann face off as rivals in an edgy love triangle with Jackie Rice, as we guarantee everyone an unpredictable show."
While this new Kapuso afternoon drama delves on mature topics, it also looks at a person's capacity to bear with life's challenges, and sacrifice for the sake of his or her loved ones.
In the series, sisters Erica (Jackie Rice) and Bianca (Jennica Garcia) have always lived a happy and comfortable life with their parents that painted for them an ideal image of "true love".
Keeping this so-called image in mind, the simple and unassuming Erica meets the endearingly handsome yet arrogant Jake (Geoff Eigenmann) and falls in love with him. But her idea of a perfect love story was ruined after Jake mysteriously disappeared and was never heard from again.
As Erica tries to move on with her family by her side, life takes a dark turn when they meet an accident that left both Erica and Bianca's parents dead.
Things only become worse after the girls realize that their parents have been hiding their family's real financial situation for some time. Both must now make a living on their own in order for them to survive.
Tension begins to grow between the two sisters but even more when Bianca finds out that she might be in danger of losing her sight as a result of the accident.
With no one else to turn to, Erica approaches her boss Jaime (Michael de Mesa), a divorced businessman who has always paid special attention to her, and asks him to take care of the expenses for Bianca's operation making way for the sisters' reconciliation.
Soon after, Jaime professes his feelings for Erica, and eventually asks for her hand in marriage. Erica, being reminded of the many good things Jaime has done for her and her sister, agrees.
As the day of their wedding approaches, Erica's life turns upside down when Jaime's children from his first wife Beatrice (Sharmaine Arnaiz) return - Jaime's scheming daughter Leslie (Angelika dela Cruz) and son, Joaquin (Geoff Eigenmann), who turns out to be Erica's former boyfriend Jake.
Still having feelings for her first love, how will Erica reveal the truth to Jaime whom she and Bianca are beholden so much of their lives to? What will come out of this unexpected rivalry between Jaime and his son Jake? What lengths will Leslie take to ruin Erica's reputation in the eyes of her father as well as her brother? Can anything or anyone still come between Erica and Bianca?
