After a successful run of Reel Love presents Tween Hearts, GMA Network brings in another youth-oriented romantic-drama series that will surely capture the hearts of viewers of all ages. TOGETHER FOREVER premieres on June 17 and is top billed by today’s hottest young love team on Philippine TV – Elmo Magalona and Julie Anne San Jose. Together Forever also stars Janine Gutierrez, Lexi Fernandez, Enzo Pineda, Sef Cadayona, Steven Silva, Benedict Campos, Renz Valerio, Patricia Ysmael and Ms. Jackie Lou Blanco.
Elmo Magalona plays the role of Ely Trinidad. Even though he comes from a well to do family, Ely remains humble and down to earth. He is a music geek and has a talent in writing poems which he will eventually use in his raps. Meanwhile, Julie Anne San Jose plays Toyang, Ely’s best friend. Although she is “one of the boys”, she will eventually develop feelings for Ely. Toyang is raised by a single dad that’s why she would do everything to make her dad happy. She strives to excel in school because she wants her dad to be proud of her. Jasmine will be played by Janine Gutierrez, the eldest Trinidad child, with a charming and effortless beauty.
The Trinidad children, Jasmine (Janine), Ely (Elmo) and Raz (Renz) are rich, sheltered, well-provided for and most of all, loved by their parents. All their wants and needs are always given by their parents – from material things to guidance in life. They live in a perfect world, until one accident takes away their parents and changes everything for them.
Ely, being the eldest son, steps up and takes it upon himself to look after and protect his Ate Jasmine and his younger brother Raz. Toyang, being the best friend of Ely, is always there for him for moral support and when he needs cheering up. This eventually leads to Toyang’s realization about her true feelings towards Ely. Still, the two will remain close friends but one secret will destroy their friendship. Will the two have a chance to rebuild their friendship and rekindle their love for each other?
Meanwhile, Jasmine, the eldest of the siblings, starts to have problems when it comes to self-esteem and believing in herself. Raz, on the other hand, the youngest has an illness that’s why his parents were very overprotective. But in spite of his situation, Raz has a very positive outlook in life.
Now that their parents are gone, the Trinidad siblings are left to find their own ways into this world, to look after each other, and to manage the family business. Life must go on that’s why together with their adjustments, they will also face the struggles of growing up and the confusing times brought by adolescent life. Is the bond and their love for each other strong enough to overcome the struggles and challenges that come their way?
Under the direction of Roderick Lindayag, Together Foreverpremieres on June 17 and will air every Sunday after Party Pilipinasonly on GMA.
