“Kung Ako’y Iiwan Mo,” ABS-CBN’s newest Kapamilya Gold teleserye and the country’s first ever ‘OFW-serye’ continues to pay tribute to the hardworking overseas Filipino workers (OFW) worldwide.
Topbilled by Jake Cuenca, Bangs Garcia, and Shaina Magdayao, “Kung Ako’y Iiwan Mo” sets the bar higher in afternoon TV as it is the first drama series made for the OFWs and about the Filipinos working abroad.
“It will truly capture the lives of millions of OFWs around world. We took scenes in the actual workplaces and homes of Pinoys in the Middle East, particularly in Doha, Qatar,” said Manny Palo, one of the directors of the drama series.
With its unique narrative, Jake, Bangs, and Shaina are proud to be part of the project.
“It was a good experience because it was like an immersion for us. Here, the viewers will witness what OFWs, their families, and loved ones have to go through just to earn a living,” Jake said.
As a son of former OFWs himself, Jake can relate to the story of their series. He shared, “I know how hard it is for OFWs to be away from their families. I experienced longing for them and getting worried about their safety.”
Meanwhile, Shaina was initially a little hesitant in accepting the role. “At first, I was hesitant because this is indeed a huge project. However, I realized how privileged I am to portray as an OFW. We all know how OFWs work hard just to give their families a comfortable life,” Shaina shared.
Like Shaina, Bangs also appreciate the social relevance of their show. “I believe that ‘Kung Ako’y Iiwan Mo’ can help OFWs in making other Filipinos, especially those who are left here in the country, realize the many sacrifices that they are making for their loved ones.”
