LOOK: ‘Kimerald’ reunites in upcoming soap opera

The stellar love team of Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson, colloquially known as “Kimerald,” is bouncing back through the upcoming ABS-CBN primetime series “Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin.”

In a series of Instagram posts on Monday, Dreamscape revealed the delightful reunion of the former “Pinoy Big Brother” sweethearts, who were last together in the 2012 rom-com flick, “24/7 in Love.”

The series, which will be directed by Dan Villegas, is about three spirited triathletes from different socio-economic backgrounds tangled in a “love triangle” and a race for success in their sport. The production company has yet to announce the target release of the series, ABS-CBN reported.

Kimerald’s teleserye will also feature Bing Loyzaga, Helen Gamboa-Sotto, Coleen Garcia, Ayen Munji-Laurel, and Jake Cuenca.
