They say life is a myriad of experiences, of possibilities, and of ups and downs. Every chapter is a colorful narrative of one’s difficulties and triumphs—with each success deserving a celebration.
This November, as Tadhana marks its fourth year on air, the award-winning drama anthology hosted by Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera continues to celebrate the stories of every Filipino’s triumphs, sparking hope and inspiration to viewers here and abroad.
“Apat na taon na tayo mga Kapuso. Ako at ang lahat ng mga taong bumubuo sa Tadhana ay nag-uumapaw ang pasasalamat sa inyong walang-sawang pagsuporta sa aming programa mula umpisa hanggang ngayon,” said Marian.
She shares that viewers can only expect great things from the show. “Makakaasa kayo na mas lalo pa naming pagagandahin ang mga kuwentong ibabahagi namin sa inyo. Kaya naman sa ating ika-apat na taon, samahan ninyo ako at ating saksihan ang mga kuwentong magbibigay sa atin ng inspirasyon at pag-asa sa pagtahak natin sa ating tadhana,” she added.
For its month-long anniversary special, Tadhana has lined up heartwarming episodes featuring some of the country’s highly-acclaimed actors. For its opening salvo this November 13 and November 20, witness the complicated story of two parents and a daughter caught between them in “Sa Ngalan ng Ama.”
The formidable cast includes award-winning actor Gabby Concepcion, Thea Tolentino, Ariella Arida, Bubbles Paraiso, and esteemed actress Ms. Eula Valdez.
In the story, Gabby plays Christian, the biological father of Tracy portrayed by Thea. Choosing to be true to herself after coming out as a lesbian, Diane played by Ariella leaves Christian and raises Tracy without him. After many years, Christian tries to reclaim the daughter he never met. But this is not without a fight from Coco, portrayed in the episode by Eula. Coco is the lesbian guardian of Tracy who assumed responsibility of taking care of Tracy when Dianne died during childbirth.
Viewers should also catch the second episode of Tadhana’s 4th Anniversary Special, “Kabayaran” which is set to air on November 27 and December 4.

Years later, Joy manages to escape from John and with the help of her best friend, she devises a plan to exact revenge. Will she be able to succeed?

This November, GMA Network’s award-winning weekly magical anthology ‘Daig Kayo Ng Lola Ko‘ is giving all the feels via its brand-new episode ‘Oh My Oppa.’
The episode is headlined by Sanya Lopez as Grace, together with Gil Cuerva as Gong Yoon Bin, Derrick Monasterio as Toti, Ashley Ortega as Fifi, and Jon Lucas as Alex.
Grace works as a hotel manager. She’s a Korean drama fan so her benchmark for men has been the standard Korean “Oppa” – handsome, rich, and a gentleman. Because of this, Grace doesn’t pay attention to her friend and co-worker, Toti, who doesn’t fit the bill of her perfect man.
One day, Grace’s ex, Alex, arrives at the resort with his new girlfriend, a spoiled heiress named Fifi. Not wanting to look pathetic, Grace tells Alex that she has moved on too and is in fact in a relationship with an Oppa.
While shopping online, Grace chances upon an ad for a robot Oppa. Annoyed that Alex doesn’t believe that she has a Korean boyfriend, Grace decides to buy the robot and names it Gong Yoon Bin.
How will Grace’s life change now that she has a humanlike Korean robot boyfriend?
Don’t miss the exciting all-new episode of ‘Daig Kayo Ng Lola Ko’s Oh My Oppa’ – under the helm of esteemed director Rechie Del Carmen, Head Writer Agnes Gagelonia-Uligan, and Writer Renei Patricia Dimla – Sundays, November 7, 14, 21, and 28, 7:00PM, on GMA.
