With Valentine’s just around the corner, it’s no surprise to see people preparing their big gestures to show their devotion to their partners. It’s such a beautiful sight to see because despite the challenges of connecting with your loved ones this pandemic, everyone is going above and beyond to ensure that their relationships stay strong. It’s a testament that true love is powerful and can get you through thick and thin.
Although fictional and imaginative, teleseryes also show us this reality of love up close — that even in the most difficult circumstances, love can conquer it all. Watch this Kapamilya Snaps video to look back on the teleserye couples that remained true to each other’s hearts whatever life threw at them.
From thinking they were half-siblings to being held at gunpoint during their wedding, Yna (Kristine Hermosa) and Angelo (Jericho Rosales) from the 2000 classic Pangako Sa ’Yo were still able to get their happy ending. They even sorted through years of family and political conflict to prove their love despite their initial statuses in life, with Angelo as a son of the governor and Yna working as a housemaid of their household.
Ana (Sue Ramirez) and Paco (Arjo Atayde) from Hanggang Saan kind of had a Romeo and Juliet type of love story in the beginning. While the two were madly in love, their families’ grave issues with each other put an end to their budding relationship. Although their love for each other had to be buried, it definitely grew as they worked together in resolving the crimes and mysteries revolving around their families. And as fate had it, they were still given that second chance at love after everything they had been through.
In The General’s Daughter, Rhian (Angel Locsin) and Franco (Paulo Avelino) would argue countless times during their dangerous missions, but their chemistry was something that everyone was sure to spot. Despite their near-death experiences fighting their enemies — and, at times, each other — they survived the struggles and realized their affection for each other. By the end of the series, they finally got to live a more peaceful life without the action or drama and could just enjoy the comfort of each other.
The task to save the world from the king of evil vampires is one of the greatest hurdles Malia (Kathryn Bernardo) and Tristan’s (Daniel Padilla) love had to face in La Luna Sangre. As the relationship of the two were built on their common mission and trust, nothing could break the young tandem’s love and faith for each other, not even when Tristan became a vampire — the very being their group was trying to defeat. Instead, they used the situation to their advantage and overcame the war together.
Ups and downs were common for married couple Patty (Angelica Panganiban) and Marlon (Zanjoe Marudo) from Playhouse, but it came to a point that they decided to call it off and got an annulment. Life, however, had a different plan for them. They were put in a situation where both of them had to take care of their godchild Robin (JJ Quilantang) and this instance not only brought them closer together, it also made them realize that they were truly meant to be with each other.
Affairs are commonly the last straw that puts an end to a relationship, but for Pamilya Ko’s Luz (Sylvia Sanchez) and Fernan (Joey Marquez) they managed to work through it and save their relationship. Fernan had to significantly make up for his mistake but with patience and the mutual understanding between the two to fix it as husband and wife, they were able to keep their family together and rebuild their love as they renewed their vows.
Chichay (Kathryn Bernardo) and Joaquin’s (Daniel Padilla) connection in Got To Believe didn’t start off quite as charming. The two, in fact, hated each other yet it was that playful banter that brought them closer together. Their friendship turned into romantic feelings, but before it could turn into an official relationship, Joaquin suffered a major memory loss and dated Alex (Liza Soberano). Though his mind forgot about Chichay, his heart did not. The two found their way back to each other and eventually got to see through the wonderful relationship they began.
Bagani’s fantasy world of Sansinukob witnesses the powerful love of Ganda (Liza Soberano) and Lakas (Enrique Gil). The both of them deeply cared about protecting their people so they had to fight several opponents to save Sansinukob. Ganda eventually sacrificed her life, but, fortunately, she did not die in the process and was only later revealed to be trapped in an unknown world. With Lakas and Ganda’s determination, Ganda was able to escape and be with Lakas once more.
These teleserye love stories continue to inspire us to fight for the people we care about because we know they are the ones that truly matter. Don’t let anything get in the way of true love, whether it may be distance, misunderstandings, or an invisible virus in our midst.
