“Love Before Sunrise” is the latest primetime drama series on Viu Philippines and GMA Network! The show tells the tale of two lovers who by fate cross paths and, as they eventually separate, their realization that they had found the right love at the wrong time.
Picture this: Atom (Dennis Trillo) and Stella (Bea Alonzo) cross paths during a random bus ride, and just like that—sparks fly, leading to a whirlwind romance. At first, life is all sunshine for these two lovebirds. But hold on, drama lurks right around the corner when Czarina (Andrea Torres), Atom’s scheming boss, throws a curveball into their perfect love story by, well, getting pregnant with Atom’s baby.
Fast forward, and Stella, heartbroken and done with Atom’s antics, calls it quits. Atom, being the responsible man he is, reluctantly ties the knot with Czarina. Years pass, and life takes a few wild turns. Stella ends up with a controlling doctor named Roald (Sid Lucero), but tragedy strikes when Roald meets a nasty car accident and Stella loses their unborn child in the process. Now, she’s the family breadwinner.
On the other side of the story, Atom is drowning in Czarina’s lavish lifestyle. Eventually, fate brings Atom and Stella face to face again. Mixed emotions linger on screen: regret and longing for what could have been, and the realization that maybe, just maybe, they shouldn’t have let each other go. But they’re both stuck in unhappy marriages. Brace yourself for a rollercoaster of forbidden and enticing love as Atom and Stella can’t help rekindling their feelings.
As we near the much-anticipated finale, revisit ten pivotal moments that brought the show’s cosmic connections to life.
