Grand thanksgiving concert set on July 25
MANILA - "Be Careful With My Heart," the long-running series starring Jodi Sta. Maria and Richard Yap, is marking its 500th episode this week with a new milestone in the lead characters' family life.
In the Monday episode of "kilig-serye," Richard (Yap) and Maya (Sta. Maria) returned to Basilica de San Martin de Tours in Taal, Batangas, where they exchanged wedding vows, for the christening of their children Sky and Sunshine.
Similar to the wedding of Richard and Maya last year, the episode was dedicated to the event, unfolding in detail with friends and family of the couple in attendance.
The baptism continued on Tueday, which marked the daytime TV phenomenon's 500th episode.
Now on its 23rd month on air, "Be Careful With My Heart" remains the No. 1 daytime show in the country, according to Kantar Media. It averaged a national audience share of 17.8% for the month of April, ranking among the 15 most watched programs in the Philippines.
The popularity of the series has also spawned a line of merchandise, a gold-selling official soundtrack album, and a wedding magazine special, among others.
To celebrate its success, "Be Careful With My Heart" will hold a grand concert at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City on July 25.
The show, dubbed "I Heart You 2!", will feature performances from the cast members as well as from a number of surprise guests.
"Isa siyang pasasalamat show at mala-family reunion rin para sa amin at sa lahat ng viewers na sinuportahan ang programa at minahal sina Maya at Ser Chief mula nang magsimula kami noong July 2012," Sta. Maria said.
Yap added: "Katulad ng show namin, walang ibang gusto ang concert namin kundi mapangiti at mapagaan ang loob ng audience. Handa na kaming ibigay ang best namin para maging masaya tayong lahat."
