"Amaya," "Marimar," "Encantadia," "Mulawin" and "My Husband's Lover" are some popular Pinoy soap operas on GMA, a TV station in the Philippines. Other popular shows by ABS-CBN, a rival TV station, include "Be Careful With My Heart," "Forevermore" and "Got To Believe."
"Amaya" is one of the first historical soap operas in the Philippines. Its TV network, GMA, built five sets for the show and asked 50 local artists to create a war ship called "Karakoa." The story of a young girl who was separated from her biological parents, "Marimar" tells how she is then raised by an elderly couple who bring her up as their own grandchild. "Encantadia" is a show about an enchanted world of the same name and focuses on its four kingdoms: Adamya, Sapiro, Hathoria and Lireo. "Mulawin," another fantasy tale, chronicles the journey of two rival races of winged humanoids, the Mulawin and the Ravena. The tale of the love triangle between a wife, her husband and his male lover is the subject of "My Husband's Lover."
"Be Careful With My Heart" is the first soap opera made by ABS-CBN that was shot and broadcast in high definition. "Forevermore" tells the story of a rebellious son of a hotel magnate and a simple daughter of a strawberry farmer who fail to get along at first but slowly fall in love with each other. A teen drama and romantic soap opera, "Got To Believe" is about a young girl and boy who meet in a carnival as children and separate after the boy is hit by a stray bullet and loses his memory.
