Even before the first gap of its first ever episode airing on March 17, ABS-CBN's Dyesebel dominated the worldwide trending topics list of Twitter. This seems to be testament to the mounting anticipation for the remake of the Filipino classic mermaid story; the reaction greatly contrasting the cold reception to the opposing mermaid series of the competing network.
Dyesebel stars Anne Curtis, Sam Milby and Gerald Anderson. These main charcaters, however, are expected to have an appearance by the end of the week. This week is focused more on how Dyesebel was conceived between a human mother (Dawn Zulueta) and a merman (Albert Martinez). The powerhouse cast also includes Andi Eigenmann, Ai-Ai de las Alas, Eula Valdez, Zsa Zsa Padilla and Gabby Concepcion.
