Throughout its successful run since 2018, Kadenang Ginto has been making our afternoon viewing habit extra scorching with its intense dramatic and confrontation scenes compellingly carried out by its talented cast.
However, it’s not only those gripping scenes between the protagonists and antagonists that made many viewers truly hooked with the said soap opera for it’s definitely because of the kilig vibes provided by the young loveteams in the show, too!
As Kadenang Ginto approaches its final two weeks, let’s reminisce the 10 on-screen scenes shared by one of its lovely young tandems Francine Diaz and Kyle Echarri, who play Cassie Mondragon and Kristoff Tejada, respectively, in this Kapamilya Toplist video.
Many of us have probably identified with their love story as they started out as childhood friends. Unfortunately, they had to part ways for a very long time after Tope’s family decided to move abroad. They went back to the Philippines after a few years and that’s when they were able to rekindle their friendship and sparks instantly flew between them.
As their bond got even tighter as time passed by, despite Marga’s (Andrea Brillantes) interference, both of them developed special feelings towards one another that eventually ensued to a young, beautiful romance. Unlike other couples their age, Cassie and Kristoff didn’t hide their relationship from their parents. Instead, they immediately opened it up to them and asked for their ‘blessing’ as they vowed not to let whatever they had veer them away from their priorities and ruin their lives, which they really did.
Both of them strived to show their parents that they weren’t a bad influence to one another and they’re better off together, but failed as Romina (Beauty Gonzalez) and Bernard (Arnold Reyes) asked them to break up after they got involved in troubles that almost put their lives in danger. They tried to negotiate by apologizing and telling them that those would not happen again, but were unsuccessful.
Cassie and Tope heeded to their command with heavy hearts, yet wasn’t able to fulfill their promise to evade one another particularly at school. Even though both of them still harbor special feelings toward each other, they agreed to be just friends for now until everything in their lives, especially Cassie’s, will be fine. Tope turned out to be Cassie’s best friend, who always sticks by her side through the ups and downs and comforts and uplifts her whenever she feels dejected or troubled.
We are definitely one with the avid shippers of Team CassToff in wishing that the couple are going to get back together by the end of the series. Is it going to happen? Well, that’s for us to find out so you better not miss an episode of Kadenang Ginto, weekdays on Kapamilya Gold.
