Kadenang Ginto features the story of Romina (Beauty Gonzalez), a simple secretary turned wife to successful business tycoon Robert (Albert Martinez), who married her after bearing the child of her rapist. Unknown to Romina, it was Daniela (Dimples Romana), the rebellious daughter of Robert, who planned the crime. Daniela also successfully seduced Romina’s fiancé, Carlos (Adrian Alandy) so he ended up leaving Romina and marries Daniela instead. With their lives intertwined, their daughters, Cassandra (Francine Diaz) and Margaret (Andrea Brillantes), are pitted against each other as the rightful heir to Robert’s empire.
Aired from October 2018 to February 2020, viewers enjoyed scenes of iconic clashes between the rival mother and daughter tandems with intense scenes between the bida and the kontrabida. Just like when Daniela threw red wine on Romina while she was drunk at her father’s party calling her a gold digger, to which the latter retaliated and stood her ground that eventually led to a catfight. We also saw the heartbreaking scene of Romina announcing her wedding cancellation in front of everybody who attended their wedding.
The gripping storyline about love and greed showcases Kapamilya teen stars Andrea Brillantes and Francine Diaz bringing to life a family rivalry like no other. In Kadenang Ginto, Andrea and Francine will play two girls with opposite personalities pitted in a complicated rivalry.
Wit and charm envelop the character of Dimples Romana as Daniela, the main antagonist that brings great agony to the character of Beauty Gonzales, Romina. Because of jealousy and greed, Daniela is blinded and selfishly takes everything she perceives as rightfully hers. Playing the neglected daughter and jilted lover never looked this convincing as viewers sharpened their own talons against the evil Daniela.
Kadenang Ginto has consistently topped its time slot in terms of nationwide TV ratings and produced memes online. Its massive success has even gone international as it is currently airing in Myanmar and has also earned an Indonesian adaptation. The series also spawned the hit teen quartet The Gold Squad, composed by stars Andrea, Francine, Seth Fedelin, and Kyle Echarri.
