The series starred Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia and it started in August 2018 and ended in January 2019.
The General’s Daughter is the series that replaced Ngayon at Kailanman’s slot on January 2019. It tells of the story of military nurse Rhian Bonifacio, who is also a spy for his father, and is trained to get revenge against one of the army’s generals. It stars Angel Locsin in its lead role.
From an article by ABS-CBN, both shows are now being shown in Myanmar via one of its channels, Sky Net International Drama Channel. Ngayon at Kailanman was already being shown starting June 24, while The General’s Daughter aired its first episode on August 4. Both shows are in a primetime schedule and has Burmese subtitles.
This follows other successful series that are shown in other countries, like Pangako Sa ‘Yo in the Dominican Republic and Halik in Tanzania.
