Beginning September 14, GMA Entertainment TV will offer a new game-changing and character-driven story in the series DESTINY ROSE.

A heart-warming tale of love and family, DESTINY ROSE will beautifully demonstrate that in one’s ability to love also lies great power to become the person one dreams to be.


Multi-talented actor KEN CHAN will delight Afternoon Prime viewers as he takes the challenge of portraying a transsexual woman who pursues her dreams into becoming an influential writer. Ken participated in a series of auditions and delivered a string of thrilling and convincing performances all throughout, making him the perfect choice for the role to become Joey Flores Vergara.

Joey is a woman trapped in a man’s body. All his life, he only dreamt and hoped to be the best for his parents. Despite the fact that everyone around him was against his personal desires and wishes, he remained to be the loving and obedient child.


A passionate student and a loving son to his family, Joey will go through different setbacks in life but will continue to be patient and understanding.

All these positive qualities will outweigh life’s challenges and Joey will become a stronger person in her new life as Destiny Rose.

As time passed, Joey faced more challenges in his journey to becoming a renowned writer and a full-fledged woman. Joey is now known as Destiny Rose.

Now that Destiny Rose has fulfilled her dreams, all she wants is to be with the love of her life and for her family to be complete once again. But what if her family, especially her estranged father, refuses to accept her? And what if the love of her life finds out that she only had sex reassignment surgery to become a woman? Will Destiny Rose still find happiness?

With all the challenges and triumphs of Destiny Rose, viewers would definitely love her.

Playing opposite Ken is Fabio Ide as Gabriele Antonioni, Joey’s Fil-Italian penpal. He will make Destiny Rose’s life more colorful as he becomes her one true love.
