Kirara, Ano Ang Kulay ng Pag-ibig? (lit. Kirara, What Is The Colour of Love?) is a Philippine drama series created and produced by TAPE, Inc. for GMA Network. The series premiered August 16, 1999 and concluded November 2, 2001. It starred Erika Ann Luna and Patricia Javier in the title role, with Joonee Gamboa, Amy Austria, Sandy Andolong, Tirzo Cruz III, Daniel Fernando and Raymond Bagatsing and directed by Gina Alajar, Jose Roell Icamen, and Jeffrey Jeturian.
The series aired from Monday to Friday as pre-programming of another TAPE-produced show, Eat Bulaga!, and is considered as the very first drama series in the morning slot.
The series also won Best Daytime Drama Series in 2000 and 2001 PMPC Star Awards for TV.
The show follows the life and love of Kirara, an Amerasian girl who was separated from her birth mother when Mount Pinatubo erupted. She was raised in an Aeta community by a couple who rescued her from the tragedy. Although she is proud of her colour and race, Kirara is always being teased and humiliated by other people who failed to see beyond skin deep. But with her pure heart and positive outlook in life, she managed to make her dream a reality.
