"Ang Babae sa Likod ng Face Mask" is Puregold Channel's First Romantic Comedy Digital Series

9:09:00 PM


Comedy despite the quarantine and lockdowns, is probably the genuine attitude of Pinoys, knowing when it is time to laugh after the hardships and tragedies. 

The kilig-tawa story of Malta, played by Herlene Budol, and her sweet but quirky romance with the incredibly handsome Sieg, portrayed by Joseph Marco, sent romcom fans in frenzy throughout the series. Many could relate to the twists and turns a woman’s heart goes through in learning to love herself and be open to the love of another.

“Ang Babae” increasingly appealed to young and young-at-heart viewers and morphed into a massive online sensation. After all, it was a feel-good series with cliffhanger moments, racking up more views and leaving heady fans wanting more after each exciting episode.

On top of their effusive support gleaned from each episode’s comments, fans also drove “Ang Babae” content to hit status on TikTok. As seen in all the videos labeled under the #angbabaesalikodngfacemask hashtag, followers expressed their own creativity and enthusiasm on TikTok.

Fan edits of lead characters Malta and Sieg, as well as clips of their favorite scenes garnered over 11 million views on TikTok, spreading the kilig and laughter to more enthusiastic fans and potential viewers who eventually latched on to the show.

The TikTok trend backs up the numbers as it shows the amazing dedication “Ang Babae” fans display. They might as well brace for a second season, considering the finale’s last scene: just when Sieg proposed marriage to Malta, her childhood ‘crush’ pops up in her life.

Vincent Co, President of Puregold Price Club, Inc., is justifiably proud of the company’s unique retailtainment initiative. “We are very happy with the success of ‘Ang Babae sa Likod ng Face Mask,’ ” says Co.

“We could not have done this without the wonderful cast as led by Herlene Budol and Joseph Marco; the entire production crew; and the followers that viewed ‘Ang Babae’ week after week and spread the word about this mini series,” he affirms. “We hope to bring more panalo stories and entertainment to all our viewers and customers in the future.”

SO IT'S YOU, A Sweet RomCom Movie

8:00:00 AM

What does celebrity love teams should have? Well in Kwento Ni Toto's thought or should I say in almost everyone's thought, CHEMISTRY is what love teams should have and the love team of Carla Abellana and Tom Rodriguez gives that sweet tingling feeling whenever they are together. A romantic aura that's binding them together. The sweetness, the sparks in theirs eyes, and the cute laughs that they have makes them a great couple. Just like what writer-director Jun Lana describes them in their first big screen pairing in Regal Entertainment's romantic-comedy film entitled “So It's You.” He said that “Bagay sila!”

BaKit Hindi Ka Crush Ng Crush Mo, Another RomCom Hits

12:03:00 AM

Have you ever asked this question to yourself “Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo?” (Why Your Crush Didn't Have a Crush On You?) Perhaps yes and perhaps not but for many hopeless romantic this is just one of the many. I too, were once asking this question, of course the book wasn't printed that time so it's one of the question that I search for the answer, hahaha.

Now, it's great that straight to the point a book like this from “the Internet Action Star”, Ramon Bautista, was published and read by many teenagers of this generation. A guide book to answer most of the questions in life of youngsters and perhaps even the not so-old bachelor and bachelorette who's still searching for the right one.

Matteo, Xian and Maja sa Isang "Matinik" na Love Story!

7:49:00 PM

Last Saturday, it was one of the earliest blogger's conference I have ever attended.  It was the My Cactus Heart Blogger's Conference.  Thank God that it is Saturday, no work.  The only hassle is that it's not easy waking up and prepare early morning.

Of course the usual thing, bloggers get to ask questions about the movie and their off cam life most especially about the relationship that Maja and Matteo have right now.  Most of us, bloggers, laugh and giggles as they show and tell some of their experiences with their relationship.

With regards to the movie, My Cactus Heart and according to Enrico Santos, director of the movie, the chemistry of the stars were really great and did make the outcome of the movie a great romantic comedy.  The mixture of Maja's versatility, Xian's serious personality, and Matteo's innocent look make the movie something to watch out.

To give viewers, readers, and fans a tease, here's a portion of the blogger's conference that transpired in Max's Restaurant in Scout Tuazon, Quezon City.

Love is such a "thorny" issue! Nakakasakit, nakakasugat, nakakatinik.  Now if the one you love believes in that, can there still be a happy ending?

'Yan and kwento ng pinakabagong pelikula mula sa Star Cinema, ang "My Cactus Heart"!  It is top billed by the country's most exciting stars, Matteo Guidicelli, Xian Lim and Maja Salavador!  Tungkol ito sa isang babae  (Maja as Sandy) na mula sa magulong pamilya.  She doesn't believe in happily ever after.  Tanggap n'ya at naniniwqala s'ya na love only hurts kaya she is known to be a chronic mambabasted!  But what if someone comes along and will make her question what she believes in?  Ano ang gagawin n'ya?  Can that someone change her jaded heart?

"This is Maja at her best!" 'yan ang sabi ng mg anakapanoon na ng rushes ng "My Cactus Heart".  Not surprising at all since we all know that Maja is one of the most talented actresses we have around.  Maja is so versatile!  She can do drama, comedy, horror, romance.  Her teleseryes last 2011 were all top-raters ("Impostor", "Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin"), and she has another big teleserye for this year, "Lumayo Ka Man Sa Akin".  Kung talent ang pag-uusapan, hindi madedehado si Maja d'yan!  As for Matteo, "My Cactus Heart" is his first starring role.  We have all seen him in his past teleseryes too and he has indeed proven that he is more than just a pretty face.  As Karlo, we can now all see why Matteo could just be the next important male lead star!  Introducing naman sa pelikula si Xian Lim, one of the most promising new male stars of today.  Xian's brooding stance made us all notice that he's got the "it" and he deserves a second look!  He plays the role of Bene, one of the two men who will try to win over Sandy's heart.  Now, Karlo or Bene?  Sino sa kanila ang makakapagpabago kay Sandy?  Who can make her believe that there is "happily ever after"?

Exciting love story, fresh casting combination!  'Yan ang "My Cactus Heart" na ipinagmamalaking handog ng Star Cinema.  Directed by Enrico Santos, the movie opens nationwide in over 100 theaters on January 25.  Eto na "ang pinaka-matinik na love story" ngayong 2012!
