Sugo (International title: The Chosen One / lit. Emissary) is a Philippine television drama action series broadcast by GMA Network. Directed by Dominic Zapata and Lore Reyes, it stars Richard Gutierrez in the title role. It premiered on July 4, 2005 on the network's Telebabad line up. The series concluded on February 10, 2006 with a total of 160 episodes.


Sugo dwells on the topic of good versus evil. The good side is represented by the karag-ayan tribe and the darker side is binhi-lan. The battle between these forces starts during the Spanish era when Apo Abukay, a chieftain who wants to gain powers and use it dominate the world, exchanges his soul with the anito (spirit god) but is killed by Conde Vergonze. After his death, his cursed soul remains. Many years later, during the 1980s, Karag-ayan Amelia and the Binhi-lan Rodolfo fall in love with each other. Amelia gives birth to twin boys. The two are raised separately, not knowing that the other exists. Miguel (the son of light) is kind, good-hearted and lives a modest life; the other, Amante (the seed of darkness) is raised with hate and rage but with riches and power.

Miguel and Amante belong to opposing tribes, and have opposing tasks to fulfill. It is Amante's task to protect the alay, a female offering whose blood will be used to reincarnate Apo Abucay's body, now a mummy hidden in the depths of a mountain, to reign darkness on earth. Miguel must slay the alay in order to stop Apo Abukay's possible return.

The twin's paths cross when they both fall in love with the same girl, Isabel. Neither knows that she is the girl whose blood will be the cause of Apo Abukay's return. This begins the conflict between their characters.
