Destined to be Yours ~Filipino Drama~

Destined to be Yours is a Philippine romantic-comedy and drama television series broadcast by GMA Network and created by GMA Entertainment TV. It premiered on February 27, 2017 replacing Alyas Robin Hood on the GMA Telebabad block and worldwide via GMA Pinoy TV. 

The series is directed by Irene Villamor and headlined by the AlDub love team of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza. It is their first prime time television series and follows the story of star-crossed lovers Sinag (Mendoza) and Benjie (Richards). The series ended its 13-week run on May 26, 2017 with a total of 63 episodes and is replaced by My Love from the Star.


Sinag Obispo (Maine Mendoza) is a DJ in a community radio station at her hometown of Pelangi (a fictional barangay in Quezon). The paradise-like town of Pelangi was formerly a well-developed municipality due to its flourishing mining industry but many people were forced to leave the town after mining firms closed down. Sinag stayed behind because she loves her hometown and she wants to preserve the traditions and culture of the place through the community radio station that she inherited from her grandfather.

Meanwhile, Benjie Rosales (Alden Richards) just graduated as an architect. His father, Gabriel, died in an accident when he was young and his mother, Amanda (Lotlot de Leon), solely raised him. Unknown to Benjie, his grandfather, Vicente Rosales (Tommy Abuel), is a real-estate tycoon and his mother suddenly encourages him to contact the Rosales kin after a change of heart. Upon meeting the Rosales household, the family did not fully welcome Benjie except for his grandmother, Helen (Boots Anson-Roa), who convinced Benjie to work at their real estate company.

As Benjie accepts the job, he was assigned to a project at Pelangi where he is destined to meet Sinag. Their life will eventually change and intertwine as they fall in love with each other.
