MANILA, Philippines -- After making her big-screen debut in "Born to Love You," pop singer Angeline Quinto stars in her first-ever “Maalaala Mo Kaya” (MMK) episode this Saturday, August 11.

In the episode marking World Indigenous Day, Quinto plays Carina, a native of the Bagobo tribe who falls in love with a good-looking Ilonggo named Ariel (portrayed by Jason Abalos).

However, Ariel’s family is against their love affair. Moreover, the cultural differences between Carina and Ariel complicate issues in their relationship.

Aside from Quinto and Abalos, the "MMK" episode will also feature Alex Castro, Arie Reyes, Tanya Gomez, Bing Davao, Eva Darren, Tom Olivar, Isabel Lopez, Girlie Alcantara and Izzy CaniIlo.

It will also be the acting debut of "Pinoy Big Brother Teen Editon 4" ex-housemates Alec Dungo and Roy Requejo.

Meanwhile, Quinto's first movie, "Born to Love You," which also stars Coco Martin, is now available on original DVDs and VCDs at video stores and record bars nationwide.

“Maalaala Mo Kaya” airs Saturdays after “Wansapanataym" on ABS-CBN.
