TV Review: My Binondo Girl

Posted on : 14-10-2011 | By : admin | In : Reviews, TV

So what does our TAG member Gerly think of it? Read on to find out! Remember to comment below or post on our Facebook or Twitter page after. Do you recommend the show?

PRODUCER: Arnel Nacario

DIRECTOR : Malu Sevilla
Francis Xavier Pasion


The teleserye is a story of a girl who gives up her dreams to be the “son” her father has long been looking for; to the extent of giving up her identity in order to be accepted and loved by the father.

Jade is born of a pure Chinese father (Chen as portrayed by Richard Yap) and a Filipina mother (Zeny as portrayed by AiAi de las Alas). In the Chinese culture, it is unlucky to have a girl as firstborn so that the family wanted to give up Jade for adoption. This led AiAi to escape and bring home her daughter to the Philippines. At that time she was already pregnant with their second child, Yuan.

Jade first met her father when she was still very young but the memory of her father wanting to see and longing for his firstborn son, Yuan, was etched in her mind until she grew up.

And the next time they meet, Jade is decided to come up to her father as his long awaited son, Yuan.


The princess of ABS CBN’s primetime show is back with a very challenging role. Kim Chiu plays a dual role in this teleserye, as Jade and her deceased brother, Yuan.

The cast is a combination of some of the hottest young stars –Kim Chiu, Jolo Revilla, Matteo Guidicelli and Xian Lim, as well as experienced and multi awarded artists – AiAi de las Alas, GinaPareño and Cherry Pie Picache so that a big audience following is expected.

A word of caution in terms of their being role models – the situation of a broken family, the husband taking on a second wife, the make-believe role of the lead star, make it doubtful if we can consider them as role models.

Parental guidance is recommended.
