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 is Dyesebel in ABS-CBN Remake?

Posted on December 30, 2013 | 12:48 PM

Actress Kim Chiu is said to be the one chosen to play the role of the love-lorn mermaid Dyesebel on ABS-CBN. According to a report by Salve Asis on The Philippine Star, Kim Chiu bagged the most-coveted role of Dyesebel.

Kim Chiu as Dyesebel and Xian Lim as Fredo

"Si Kim Chiu pala ang final choice para maging Dyesebel ng ABS-CBN. Kasalukuyan na raw nagti-training si Kim at any moment ay magti-taping sila," Asis wrote on her column published Monday.

Early this year, ABS-CBN has finalized the deal on the network's acquisition of 13 titles or characters created by Mars Ravelo, including the superheroine Darna, the everyman-superhero character Captain Barbell and the love-lorn mermaid Dyesebel. This sparked the guessing game on the lucky (and deserving) actors who get to portray them.

The network started to air teasers for Dyesebel last month which heightened the anticipation of the fans. Early reports had Anne Curtis, KC Concepcion, Angel Locsin, Erich Gonzales, Sarah Geronimo, Maja Salvador and Kim Chiu in the list of actresses being considered for the role.

Although there's no official confirmation from the network yet, Kim Chiu's fans are now jumping for joy while others said that the role doesn't fit Kim and insisted their favorites for Dyesebel, including Anne Curtis and Jessy Mendiola. The latter was recently rumored to have bagged the role of Dyesebel and if we are to take hints from posts in social media, Jessy might have been the chosen one, trying new hair extensions that could possibly be for her mermaid role.

If Kim Chiu is indeed Dyesebel, it's a no brainer that Xian Lim will be her lover Fredo. The two are currently busy promoting their second movie together, Bride for Rent.

Whether it's Kim Chiu or Jessy Mendiola, great interest has now been generated for Dyesebel and the only thing we could do is wait for the official announcement very soon.

Dyesebel will start taping in January and the show is expected to air first quarter of 2014. This is another Dreamscape Entertainment production and will be directed by Don Cuaresma and Francis Xavier Pasion.

Pinay Maria Mercedes Jessy Mendiola explores the beautiful sights in Korea and goes as far as conquering her fear of heights just to find love in the Land of the Morning Calm this Sunday (Dec 1) as she guest hosts in the award-winning educational program “Matanglawin.”

After being appointed as an honorary ambassador for Korea tourism, Jessy attends to her responsibilities and goes around Korea to discover more about their culture and shares it with the Filipino people.

“I am very happy that the Korean Tourism Office invited me and chose me among many other actresses in the Philippines. That is why I want to give back by learning more about their culture, their people, and all other interesting stuff about their country,” Jessy explained.

Part of her itinerary is the Love Locks which is a famous spot for people who want to find their true love. But before Jessy locks in her dreams of finding “the one” using a padlock, she must first ride a cable car at the foot of Mt. Namsan and go more than 400 feet up.

“I used a pink padlock given to me by ‘Matanglawin.’ It has my name written on it in front and there’s a blank at the back where I’m supposed to write the name of my one true love. I’ll leave it blank for now and hopefully next time I’d come back here with him,” Jessy shared.

From filling her heart with hopes of finding love, Jessy fills her stomach next as she enjoys a sumptuous dinner at the rotating restaurant on top of the N-Seoul Tower.

Meanwhile, Jessy also learns more about Korea’s national costume— the Hanbok— and even wears one created by Lee So Jeung, one of the top hanbok makers in Korea.

What else will Jessy find in the beautiful country of South Korea? Will she reveal who’s the lucky guy close to unlocking her heart? Don’t miss Jessy’s two-part Korean adventure in “Matanglawin” this Sunday (Dec 1), 9:30 AM, on ABS-CBN.

The highly-anticipated local adaptation of the worldwide hit Mexican telenovela that captivated the hearts of many Filipino viewers is set to conquer Philippine television once more beginning Monday (Oct 7) when ABS-CBN premieres “Maria Mercedes” on Primetime Bida. 

What's with the J? Maria Mercedes Main cast: Jake Cuenca, Jessy Mendiola and Jason Abalos

Filling in the shoes of Mexican Superstar Thalia, who first played the role of Maria Mercedes, is one of Philippine TV’s prettiest faces today and ABS-CBN’s newest primetime princess, Jessy Mendiola. She will portray the iconic role of Mercedes opposite leading men Jake Cuenca as Luis and Jason Abalos as Clavio.


“The Pinay Maria Mercedes will surely make Filipinos laugh, cry, and fall in love all over again with her colorful story,” said Jessy. “Viewers will get to relate to the story even more as we highlight true Filipino values especially our unconditional love for our family.”

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. The soon-to-air remake is the only localized version endorsed by Thalia herself among other Thalia-serye adaptations previously aired on Philippine television.
