An enchanting story of finding true love that would last forever, unconfined by time, circumstance and life itself, is what new primetime tandem Janine Gutierrez and Aljur Abrenica will try to project on screen in Once Again, premiering tonight on GMA 7.
Once Again is a story of two people star-crossed lovers, Reign (Gutierrez) a rich girl and Edgar (Abrenica), a meek baker. With their disparity in social classes comes the objection of Reign’s family that resulted to her being in an arranged marriage with an elite bachelor in town. The result is the tragic demise of the lovers. But as fate would have it, their love for each other reincarnated 20 years later in the form of Des and Aldrin.
Gutierrez and Abrenica have previously worked together in the former GMA 7 primetime show Dangwa but never got to bond together, making this new show feel like the first time they worked together.
“Pakiramdam ko po first time ko pong makakatrabaho si Aljur dito sa Once Again, mas nakilala ko siya dito,” Gutierrez said during their show’s press conference.
For his part, Abrenica said, “Before kasi sa Dangwa hindi kami masyadong naguusap pero with this project may mga pagkakataon na hindi na kami natutulog, naguusap na lang kami. I think also because we have a lot of similarities in life like values sa family at mapagmahal na ate’t kuya.”
