GMA Network finally welcomes widescreen format
Following the rousing success of “Maria Clara at Ibarra” comes “Mga Lihim ni Urduja.” The new show is another GMA groundbreaking drama set in pre-colonial and modern worlds. The now trending show debuted in widescreen format on February 27, 2023.
The series is a reunion project of the well-loved “Encantadia” Sang’gres — Kylie Padilla as Gem, Gabbi Garcia as Crystal, and Sanya Lopez as Hara Urduja.
Hara Urduja is a mystical warrior queen. She rules an army of strong, skillful, and extraordinary women in the Kingdom of Tawalisi located in the pre-colonial Philippines.
Praises for ‘Mga Lihim ni Urduja’
“Mga Lihim ni Urduja” follows the story of Gem, a career-driven rookie cop and Crystal, a budding entrepreneur and jewelry designer. Together, they were assigned to work in a special law enforcement operation to recover priceless heritage pieces of jewelry. The said jewels are believed to have been used as magical amulets of the legendary Hara Urduja.
Just two episodes in and the netizens already sang praises for the new GMA fantasy show.
My favorite part about #MgaLihimNiUrduja is probably the use of virtual set. It looks SO GOOD. No green screen spills, & the actors can immerse more w/o having to imagine what the set looks like.— ako si Katya | #MCISepanx ?? (@It_IsMyKate) February 28, 2023

Ang creative ng casting? Hindi ba maraming nagsasabi na magkamukha sila Gabbi and Michelle, tapos sila Kylie and Arra na may history sa Encantadia. Ngayon, katapat nila ang isa’t-isa as enemies.#MgaLihimNiUrduja pic.twitter.com/inp5C4hqUk— 🙁 (@peter_viper) February 27, 2023
