In its final week, Yaya Melody convinces President Glenn (Gabby Concepcion) not to withdraw from his position as the President to which he agrees.

Will this be the end of Melody and President Glenn’s fairytale-like romance?

Gabby reveals what he will miss the most in the series, “I’ll miss all the fun. Hindi naman parating masaya sa set pero ito kakaiba dahil ngayon lang ako nakaranas na kahit sa set o sa labas, talagang masaya kami. Hindi ko malilimutan ‘yung samahan ng buong cast, staff, at production team.»
Sanya, in turn, describes how her first titular role changed her life, “Mas lumalim po ‘yung pagkakakilala ko lalo na sa mga kasambahay sa buhay natin. I realized that everyone, ven our helpers at home, encounter problems. Dito mas nakilala ko ‘yung sarili ko at natutunan ko na sa buhay natin hindi lang sarili natin ‘yung mahalaga, pati na rin ‘yung buhay ng ibang tao.”
The show’s director, LA Madridejos, reveals what he believes to be the secret behind Sanya and Gabby’s undeniable on-screen chemistry, “Basically kung ano ‘yung nangyari kina Yaya Melody and PGA, ganoon din ‘yung nangyari sa chemistry nina Sanya and Gabby.”
“They’re chemistry is something that’s natural. Iyon ‘yung masarap sa hinayaan mo mag-grow sila. Tapos unti-unti, kahit wala kang ibinibigay na instructions, meroon na silang inputs and nagagawa na at alam mo na na-invibe na nila ‘yung buong character.»
First Yaya – under the helm of Madridejos and associate director Rechie del Carmen – concludes tonight.
