Jake Cuenca Determined to Pursue Jessy Mendiola; Ready to Compete with Other Suitors

Posted on January 22, 2014 | 4:00 PM

ABS-CBN’s local adaptation of hit Mexicanovela “Maria Mercedes” may be ending this Friday (Jan 24), but for leading man Jake Cuenca, the battle to win Jessy Mendiola’s heart is far from being over.  Jake said he would even go the next level now that he can woo the young actress more privately and off cam.

Jessy Mendiola and Jake Cuenca

“I’ll miss Jessy the most. But I think it will be better now that the show is over. At least there is no more pressure. I’ll still be the same with Jessy even now that the show is over. The only difference is that we will have more privacy than before,” said Jake.

Jessy, who is currently being tagged as the “it girl” of showbiz, recently revealed in “Buzz ng Bayan” last Sunday that she rarely sees or communicates with actor Sam Milby. Does this development encourage Jake even more to pursue the sought-after actress?

“I really don’t mind Jessy’s other suitors. Like what I’ve said, I’m moving at my own pace regardless if Sam is courting her or not or if Jessy and I will be together or not. I just want it to happen at the right time when Jessy and I are both ready,” he said.

“Maria Mercedes” recently held its last taping day where the production team shot the intense finale scenes avid viewers should watch out for this week. Find out what Misty (Nikki Gil) is capable of doing just to destroy the lives of (Jessy Mendiola) and Luis (Jake Cuenca). How will she save herself from going to jail after Malvina (Vivian Velez) surrendered the last piece of evidence to authorities that will prove she is guilty of killing Mercedes’ brother Guillermo (Marx Topacio)? Whose life will be sacrificed in the name of revenge?

Kim Chiu and Coco Martin Tandem in New ABS-CBN Teleserye

Posted on January 19, 2014 | 6:15 PM

Primetime royalties Coco Martin and Kim Chiu are said to be working together in an upcoming ABS-CBN teleserye. Reports said that Kim will be Coco's leading lady in his comeback teleserye, a period drama with a working title Ikaw Lamang.

Kim Chiu and Coco Martin Tandem in New ABS-CBN Teleserye

"Si Kim Chiu pala ang bagong leading lady ni Coco Martin sa bago niyang teleserye sa ABS-CBN at take note, hindi na kasama ang ka-loveteam ng aktres na si Xian Lim sa proyektong ito," entertainment columnist Reggee Bonoan wrote in his article in Bandera.

According to the published article, Coco Martin and Kim Chiu will be joined by Jake Cuenca and Julia Montes in the upcoming project. Childstar Xyriel Manabat is also in the cast.

In one of his interviews, Coco revealed that he will be working on his teleserye soon after he finished shooting for the movie Padre de Familia which also stars Montes and superstar Nora Aunor. The actor also said that this new project will be an action-drama.

"Baka mag-start na ako itong end of January. Magbabalik ako. Napakagandang ano sa akin, kasi after Juan dela Cruz, superhero siya, ngayon gumawa ako ng ganitong klaseng pelikula. Tapos ang gagawin kong next soap ay heavy drama na may action, kumbaga ready ako ngayon humarap sa soap operang gagawin ko," he said.

If indeed this is true, then ABS-CBN might be trying new pairing just like what they did with Kimerald (Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson). However, is ABS-CBN ready to let go of the popularity of the KimXi tandem this early?

Follow the bittersweet story of Mercedes as she faces life’s stuggles and experiences falling in love for the first time.

From a simple life in the province, Mercedes, together with her father and siblings, will move to Manila to move on from the pain caused by her mother. But things wouldn’t go as planned when her father suddenly died and Mercedes was left with no choice but to take on the responsibility of raising her younger brother and sister at her very young age.

As time passed, Mercedes learned her way living in the metro and was able to provide for siblings Rosario (Devon Seron) and Andres (Yogo Singh) by juggling different but decent jobs alongside her childhood friend Clavio (Jason Abalos).

But her world will take a different turn once her heart starts to beat for the handsome and rich businessman Luis Sancuevas (Jake Cuenca). How will Mercedes deal with her feelings for Luis? Who will go against their budding love? How will fate turn things around as Santiago (Ariel Rivera) enters Mercedes’ life?

Also included in the cast of “Maria Mercedes” are Vina Morales, Dominic Ochoa, Nikki Gil, Vivian Velez, Nadia Montenegro, Atoy Co, Erika Padilla, Marx Topacio, Alex Castro, and Isabelle De Leon.

“Maria Mercedes,” directed by Chito Rono, is one of ABS-CBN’s offerings in celebration of the 60th year of Philippine television. The original “Maria Mercedes” aired on ABS-CBN in 1996 and it is considered to be one of the most successful telenovelas in Phillipine TV history.
