MANILA, Philippines – ABS-CBN opens 2016 with a light romantic comedy that sheds light on interracial relationships beginning this Monday (Jan 18) in “Be My Lady.”
Follow the love story of certified ‘dalagang Pilipina’ Pinang and modern Brazilian-Japanese guy Phil, played by real life couple Daniel Matsunaga and Erich Gonzales, as they find their way to each other’s hearts despite differences in language, beliefs and culture.
Pinang grew up to a simple family with big dreams. To make ends meet, her mother Marcy (Janice De Belen) works in Singapore and tries her luck there in hopes of earning money to reclaim the piece of land her husband Emil (Al Tantay) used to own and uses for farming. But things will not go her way as an unfortunate incident paves way for her to get deported.
Phil, meanwhile, grew up in a very western and liberated environment. He is independent and lives a very comfortable life with his mother Chelsea (Priscilla Mereilles) in Singapore. A wedding of a dear friend suddenly brings him to the Philippines, which also gives him the long awaited chance of finding his childhood nanny who he want to make amends with.
As he searches for a person very dear to him in his past, Phil also finds the woman who will make his heart skip a beat like no other. How will the aggressive Brazilian-Japanaese hunk grab ther eyes of the conservative and very reserved Pinay?
