What KathNiel did to prepare for ‘Pangako Sa’ Yo’
The Teen King and Queen share the first things they did when they found out they will be this generation’s Yna and Angelo

The long wait is finally over: Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla will be back on Primetime Bida as the remake of Pangako Sa’Yo premieres on Monday, May 25. During their recent Kapamilya Chat, the pair couldn’t hide their excitement about starring in this iconic show, dubbed the teleserye that started all teleseryes. While they’ve shared time and again how much they studied the show and worked to nail their own take on the characters of Yna and Angelo, aren’t you curious to know what else they did to prepare for this big project?

“After we found out that we’re doing the show, mas pina-fit kami, ni-ready talaga kami for the roles,” recalled Kathryn, who’s currently into TRX, which she finds fun and really effective. Looks-wise, the Teen Queen said she didn’t have to undergo any transformation—not even cutting her hair. She’s got a lovely, tanned looked though, which she admitted was unplanned. Her healthy color came from their long taping days under the sun.

Daniel, who’s reprising Jericho Rosales’ character in the original series, on the other hand, revealed he’s not really keen on going to the gym. “Nag-ba-basketball ako, hindi ako nag-gy-gym, tamad ako eh,” he said of his noticeably more buff physique.

Kathryn also had to take cooking lessons for more Yna Macaspac real-ness—as we all know, Yna (played by Kristine Hermosa in the original series), was a simple lass who had great homemaking skills.

Pangako Sa’Yo will air weeknights after Nathaniel.
