A decade after ABS-CBN started its film restoration project called Sagip Pelikula, more than 80 classic Filipino films have already been digitally restored and remastered from the archives of ABS-CBN. This month, their latest release is Star Cinema’s romantic drama Kay Tagal KangHinintay starring the ‘90s love team of the late actor Rico Yan and Judy Ann Santos.
Juday shared the news on her Instagram account last September 13.
She wrote, “ABS-CBN Sagip Pelikula presents the digitally restored & remastered KAY TAGAL KANG HININTAY (1998), directed by Rory B. Quintos, from the story of Mari Mariano, and the screenplay by Olivia M. Lamasan and Mari Mariano.

The two cross paths and find attraction with each other while on their respective vacations in Vigan, Ilocos Sur but go their separate ways. Once back in the city, fate gives them another chance to give love another try.
