Meteor Garden Remake: Kim Chiu and Xian Lim or Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla?

'Meteor Garden' Remake on ABS-CBN: Will it be Kim Chiu and Xian Lim as San Cai and Dao Ming Si? Or will it be Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla?

Since 2009, it has been long-rumored that ABS-CBN will do the Philippine version of "Meteor Garden", the hit Taiwanese drama which started the Asianovela craze in the Philippines 10 years ago.
Sarah Geronimo was first reported to be playing the Filipina San Cai, with lesser known names portraying the F4 members, but obviously, it didn't come to fruition and has since remained to be just a hearsay.

Fast forward to last quarter of 2012, there was a loud buzz that the Meteor Garden leads, San Cai and Dao Ming Si, reportedly will be portrayed by the KathNiel loveteam, composed of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, in the rumored ABS-CBN remake.

It continued to be the rumor this 2013, until Kim Chiu and Xian Lim play the well-loved Meteor Garden characters in the ABS-CBN Summer Station ID 2013 released just yesterday. Also in the said Summer Station ID, the other F4 members are portrayed by Sam Concepcion, Dominic Roque and Robi Domingo.

For the KimXi fans, that looks like a perfect casting already if ABS-CBN is indeed going to do a Meteor Garden remake.

But fans of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, who meanwhile portray the roles of Yna and Angelo from "Pangako Sa 'Yo" in the Summer Station ID, are not just gonna give up on their idols as the ones doing the alleged Pinoy version of Meteor Garden. Some insist that Daniel Padilla has got more "angas" and fits the role of Dao Ming Si better than Xian Lim or any other actor being considered for the role.

I myself am torn between these two (2) loveteams, and I won't mind whoever gets it.

Kathryn Bernardo or Kim Chiu for San Cai?

KimXi or KathNiel?

If you were to be asked, who should be San Cai and Dao Ming Su in the rumored ABS-CBN Remake of "Meteor Garden"?
