Coco Martin, Kim Chiu, Jake Cuenca, and Julia Montes Topbill New TV Series "Ikaw Lamang"

Dreamscape and ABS-CBN offers another exciting team-up as the combined Coco Martin, Kim Chiu, Jake Cuenca, and Julia Montes in an epic-serye entitled "Ikaw Lamang" This is not the first time that Coco worked with his co-stars. He worked with Jake and Kim in "Tayong Dalawa." Meanwhile, he'll be reunited with his loveteam in "Walang Hanggan" Julia Montes.

Rhodora was kidnapped when she was young that put her on trauma. The experience has led to the emergence of Roxanne who is a confident and smart woman but also scheming and manipulative.

I t's Showtime may be worthy of the award Most Gender-Sensitive TV Program already as it launched it's newest portion that caters another sector of the LGBT community, i.e., of Gays and Bisexuals through "I AM POGAY."

The placards "Confirmed" will be raised to those they agree to win, or "Confused" for otherwise. I admire the show for being the platform for the LGBT community to showcase their talents and capabilities. Beyond the comic relief that sometimes it
