Those who can’t get enough of multi-talented actress-host Yassi Pressman are in for a double treat this month as Kurdapya, TV5’s “twintastic komediserye ng taon”, presents not one but two Yassi Pressmans in the challenging roles of polar opposites Kuring and Daphne.
Premiering on March 18, the highly-anticipated series follows the journey of two long-lost twins who reunite in a strange accident after living vastly different lives. Kuring grew up in the province with her cruel extended family, while Daphne was raised in the city under the guidance of her strict father who is the CEO of a publishing conglomerate. Both of them feel unhappy with their current realities so their unexpected reunion turns into a twist that will ultimately change their lives.
Exploring the themes on family, love, and self-discovery, Kurdapya also stars Marco Gumabao as Carlos, Kuring’s childhood friend and the apple of her eye; Nikko Natividad as the nouveau rich and “jojologin” Tadeo, who was handpicked by Daphne’s father to be her suitor; Ryza Cenon as the gold-digging girlfriend of Daphne’s father; Katya Santos as Kuring’s strict and ambitious aunt; Candy Pangilinan as the funny ex-con mom of Kuring and Daphne; and Lander Vera-Perez as the twins’ father.
As the story unfolds, viewers will witness the funny misadventures of Kuring and Daphne as they try to escape their current realities by switching identities, navigate through life’s challenges, and come face-to-face with their past. How will the twins learn to overcome their adversities and forge a better future for themselves?
