The upcoming Kapuso historical drama “Pulang Araw,” starring Alden Richards, Barbie Forteza, David Licauco, Dennis Trillo, and Sanya Lopez, is scheduled to be released in July.

According to press statements from GMA and Netflix Philippines, “Pulang Araw” will be released on a streaming platform on July 26 while local airing on the Kapuso network is set for July 29.


The drama revolves around four childhood friends Eduardo (Alden Richards), Teresita (Sanya Lopez), Adelina (Barbie Forteza), and Hiroshi (David Licauco) navigating the Japanese occupation of the Philippines.


“As war ravages their homeland and Japanese forces occupy the country, their dreams, friendships, and loyalties are tested, leading them on a journey of self-discovery and resilience,” GMA’s statement read.

Meanwhile, Trillo will star as the Japanese soldier Col. Yuta Saito. Aside from being the villain, details of his character are yet to be revealed, as of this writing.

The Kapuso network also shared a teaser for the series showing the cast braving the horrors of war as they appeared to take hiding in a jungle.

“Mabuhay ang kalayaan! Sa paggunita sa 126th anniversary ng Araw ng Kalayaan, ating alalahanin ang lahat ng Pilipinong buong tapang na nakipaglaban para sa ating kalayaan. Ang kuwento ng bawat pamilyang Pilipino, ito ang #PulangAraw,” its post read.

(Happy Independence Day! As we celebrate the 126th anniversary of our Independence Day, let us remember the Filipinos who fought for our freedom. Here is the story of every Filipino family, this is Pulang Araw.)

Also joining the leads are Angelu De Leon, Epy Quizon, Rochelle Pangilinan, and Aidan Veneracion.
