Afternoon television’s most desirable series, Moon of Desire captivated viewers with its compelling story about love, lies, and finding true beauty when it aired in March of 2014 in ABS-CBN’s Kapamilya Gold.
Two of Philippine television’s most desirable actors JC De Vera and Meg Imperial team up for the first time alongside Ellen Adarna, Dominic Roque, and Miko Raval.
DJ Ayla (Meg Imperial) soothes the pain of those who are heart-broken through the love advice that she gives in her popular radio program, Moon of Desire. But behind this sexy and seductive voice is a mystery that hounds her listeners-- a secret that Ayla wants to keep for as long as she lives. Also stars JD De Vera and Ellen Adarna
Ayla has suﬀered from discrimination and maltreatment all her life because she is aﬄicted with a medical condition called hypertrichosis, or having excessive growth of hair all over her body. Now a popular radio DJ of the program Moon of Desire, Ayla hides her insecurities behind the radio booth and ﬁnds acceptance from her listeners who seek her advice on love. Seemingly conﬁdent on the outside, Ayla is still hurting over a broken promise made by the one and only person who has shown her kindness and love- her childhood friend Jeﬀ (JC de Vera).
She once again crosses paths with Jeﬀ, now a successful dermatologist. Jeﬀ will instantly be smitten by the now seductive Ayla without knowing that she is the same odd-looking girl he has loved his whole life. Unknown to Ayla, Jeﬀ has devoted his time studying medicine to ﬁnd a cure for her condition. Ayla and Jeﬀ are not the only ones who desire each other as people around them want them just as bad. There's Vince (Dominic Roque), a photographer who falls in love with Ayla despite her looks; Tamara (Ellen Adarna), the rich heiress of the company Jeﬀ is working for and who is head-over-heels for him; and Eron (Miko Raval), the radio station's sound engineer who is passionately and secretly in love with DJ Ayla.
