MANILA – ABS-CBN’s “Pangako Sa’Yo” remake trended in Twitter, both locally and internationally as fans around the world expressed praise and support for the teleserye before and after watching its pilot episode.
The teleserye began with the narration of Amor Powers (Jodi Sta. Maria) remembering her past in San Felipe. The daughter of a miner at Buena Mines, Amor had long been secretly in love with Eduardo Buenavista (Ian Veneracion), the son of the mining company owners. Eduardo, however, was already arranged to marry Claudia Zalameda (Angelica Panganiban) as posed by their influential parents.
The episode’s hashtag “PSYAngUnangPagIbig” trended in Twitter, both nationwide and worldwide, even before it was aired.
