MANILA, Philippines -- Robin Padilla is every bit the action star in his latest TV project, as seen in a recently released trailer for the upcoming primetime drama "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw."
Released online on Thursday via ABS-CBN's official YouTube page, the trailer features the full song from which the TV series borrows its title. The new rendition is performed by Kapamilya singer Angeline Quitno.
In "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw," Bogs (Padilla), a police officer, meets ramp model Ruth (Anne Curtis), whose self-kidnapping scheme lands her in jail momentarily.
Bogs and Ruth soon develop feelings for each other, until she decides to leave for New York to pursue her dreams. Their time apart has Bogs falling for Ruth's sister, Roxanne (Kris Aquino), who eventually marries the law enforcer.
Tension brews between the siblings, until Roxanne faces a devastating truth about her health.
Meanwhile, Bogs, who seeks to avenge the death of his father, finds the trail leading to Roxanne and Ruth's dad (Tirso Cruz III).
Directed by Malu Sevilla and Joyce Bernal, "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw" will premiere on ABS-CBN on January 21.
The soap also features actors Ian Veneracion, Smokey Manaloto, Emilio Garcia and Lito Pimentel, as well as child star Xyriel Manabat.
