"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.”

The Costume that Made Darna Iconic

12:13:00 AM

 

The newest Darna flies this August 15. But before it takes massive attention from its fans, let us try to check some details of the characters and figure out what is interestingly new in this latest Darna series.

Darna is an iconic heroine character among Filipinos. I think there's no Filipino who doesn't know Darna, probably except those who live in the mountain or chose to live a monk-like life or a sage or the ones who do not have any access to any media materials. Pinoy kids love this character, a good representation of woman empowerment.

From the conception of the character since its first appearance on screen in the 1950s, Darna has undergone many changes. This has made the icon, the idol of every kid in every generation.

Let us check what costume made the Darna character iconic.

Rosa Del Rosario - 1950 - "Darna"
 

Rosa del Rosario the first Darna wore a costume similar to the comic character, a head gear covering the head like a helmet with the Darna emblem. It then became its trademark but was changed during the portrayal of Nanette Medved and Anjanette Abayari, wearing only the symbol on the head.

Anjanette Abayari - 1994 - "Darna !Ang Pagbabalik"

Nanette Medved - 1991 - "Darna"


The two-piece costume with the iconic star on it. Almost all the actresses who played Darna wore this costume and interestingly there are only three (3) actresses who wore the one piece version, Sharon Cuneta, Regine Velasquez, and the now Iza Calzado. 

Sharon Cuneta -  1986 - appeared in "Captain Barbell"

Regine Velasquez - 2009 - TV Series "Book 2 of Darna"


Let's talk about the emblem. From all the Darna versions and based on the creation of Mars Ravelo, there are two (2) significant objects present, the stone, and the wings. Rio Locsin, Lorna Tolentino, and Anjanette Abayari's costumes are somewhat different.

Lorna Tolentino - 1977 - "Darna"

Rio Locsin - 1977 - "Darna"

   
Now, the Jane de Leon Darna version shows a different emblem. The gem or stone is the same but the wings are not the usual feathery type. Probably a more digitalized and modernized look to match the current generation.

 Probably the weirdest of all the actors who played the Darna role was Dolphy. Yes, he did get his chance of becoming Darna in Darna kuno!

Dolphy - 1979 - "Darna Kunoh?"

I think no matter what is the version in every generation, the character only speaks of one thing... woman empowerment.  Women are fragile but they are not weak. That's why Darna became an icon not only because of her costume but because of the strength and strong will behind that image. 

Jane De Leon - present - Darna


So, what do you think of the new version of Darna? 

Darna flies on August 15!

Is It a Happy Ending for DonBelle in “HE’S INTO HER” SEASON 2?

12:15:00 AM

 

The DonBelle (Donny and Belle) love team became a hit because of their love team tandem in His Into Her, with the characters of Max and Deib. Now, as the series ends, will Max and Deib have an end game, or is it game over?  

The fairytale-like romance of the two lovebirds may really be over as their personal problems cause them to slowly drift apart in the much-awaited ‘kilig’-filled finale episode of the phenomenal, record-breaking series, “He’s Into Her” season 2, on iWantTFC.

“He’s Into Her” captured the hearts of viewers as the most streamed original series on iWantTFC and the most watched weekend program on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s Kapamilya Online Live.

The award-winning show, which has also been consistent in trending topics on social media, is now gearing up for the highly anticipated “HIH: All-Access” finale concert on August 27 at Araneta Coliseum, wherein VVIP and VIP tickets sold out in less than an hour.

In the latest turn of events in the series, ever since Max and Deib decided to cool-off, their relationship has faced great uncertainty. They have decided not to get back together just yet, even though it has been confirmed that Boyet (Janus del Prado), Max’s uncle, was not the one who shot Dale (Turs Daza), Deib’s older brother.

Although their families have finally made peace and have given their blessing for their relationship, Max and Deib’s problems will only intensify due to the shocking death of Dale. Deib will have a difficult time coping with the loss of his brother, and will suddenly grow distant from everyone around him, including Max.

Max, on the other hand, will struggle to help Deib recover despite all her efforts. Because of this, Deib will also have second thoughts about attending their school’s senior ball - giving Randall (Jeremiah Lisbo), Max’s first love and ex-boyfriend, a chance to be her date to the event.






 


The ‘bearkada’ will also have to resolve their own issues leading up to their graduation, which is supposed to be the ‘best time of their lives.’ Lee and Naih (Joao Constancia and Criza Taa) will try to fix their misunderstandings amidst their breakup, while Michiko (Kaori Oinuma), who declared her love to Dale before his death, may finally get her long-awaited closure from her ex-lover Tob.

Will Max and Deib be able to rekindle their romance? Will the bearkada’s tight-knit friendship be able to overcome their issues?

Find out what will happen to Max and Deib’s love story in the finale episode of “He’s Into Her” season 2 on August 3 (Wednesday), 8 PM, which streams for free on the iWantTFC app (iOs and Android) and website (iwanttfc.com).

Kyle and Chie, who spread 'kilig' as former housemates of "PBB Kumunity" celebrity edition, will be playing each other's love interest in the series. Dave (Kyle) is the charming leader of a group of happy-go-lucky teenage boys known as the “Baler Boys” - Billy, Jeremy, Jason, and Pete (Lance, Sean, Brent, and Raven).

The five boys are working hard as waiters and pool boys at a luxury resort in order to fulfill their dreams to live a comfortable life and move to Manila.

Despite their easy-going attitude, they are also dealing with their own inner struggles. Dave is trying to convince his mother to allow him to go to Manila for college; Billy is having problems with his goal-oriented girlfriend Yasmine (Angelica); Jason is secretly in love with rich girl Erika (Kira); while Pete has suppressed feelings for his best friend.

The boys’ lives will change when they get entangled in the affairs of Nicole (Chie), an alluring, mysterious, and hot chick who will seemingly help them navigate through their teenage crises.

As Nicole gets closer to the boys, especially to Dave who seems to have fallen in love with her, they will soon find out that Nicole actually has a scheming hidden agenda.

 


The boys will find themselves going on a crazy adventure as a series of revelations, betrayals, and mishaps begin to unravel - that will ultimately test their maturity, and most importantly, their friendship.

Will Dave and his friends be able to resolve their issues? What deep secret is Nicole hiding?

NIGHTMARISH TALES OF MISFORTUNE IN iWANTTFC’S HORROR ANTHOLOGY SERIES “HORRORSCOPE”

1:13:00 AM

 


Scary and thrilling, no matter what the story is as long as there's a jump-off-seat factor this kind of series will definitely be watched by many. So iWantTFC welcomes the New Year with its first original 2021 offering titled “Horrorscope,” an anthology series about how one’s astrological sign can bring misfortune and terror, which begins streaming worldwide on January 13. 

Starring Charlie Dizon, Elisse Joson, Patrick Quiroz, Fino Herrera, Iyah Mina, and Paolo Gumabao, “Horroscope’s” Zodiac-based chapters are a follow-up to Jake Cuenca’s “Scorpio” episode in “Sitsit,” which is also available on iWantTFC.

In the “Virgo” episode of “Horrorscope,” MMFF 2020 Best Actress Charlie Dizon takes on her first horror role as Ronalyn, an idealistic rookie police officer who is forced by her superiors to join a group of corrupt “ninja cops” in exchange for a promotion.

To be accepted, Ronalyn needs to extract information from and then execute a suspected drug runner held captive by the group, who turns out to be her ex-boyfriend and first love Dado (Fino Herrera). Before her bosses find out about their real connection, Ronalyn then must choose between doing what’s right and saving her own life.

In the “Leo” episode, Iyah Mina plays the controlling fashion designer Leona, who is mourning the passing of her younger boyfriend Jonas (Paolo Gumabao). Her only wish is to be with him again, so she hires a necromancer to bring Jonas back from the dead.

As both of them become overpowered by Clarissa, the priest decides to kill her as a last resort. But Ponce is paralyzed by fear and his conscience, unable to decide whether to help the priest with his morbid solution or save Clarissa and her unborn child.

“Horrorscope” is created, produced, and directed by Ato Bautista, who also helmed the “Scorpio” episode in iWantTFC’s “Sitsit” movie series.

Kokoy De Santos experiences the highs and lows of young love while coming to terms with his sexuality in the new original romantic comedy series in “Oh, Mando,” which also stars Barbie Imperial and Alex Diaz and starts streaming on Thursday (November 5) on iWant TFC.

The series is a coming out and coming-of-age tale about Mando (Kokoy), a hopeless romantic and charming college boy who has long suppressed his attraction to boys.


Despite his confusion over his sexuality, Mando is charmed by the beautiful and liberated Krisha (Barbie) when they meet in a school play. They eventually enter into a relationship, while Mando continues to hide his secret from his girlfriend.

As Mando starts developing real feelings for Krisha, he experiences love at first sight when he meets a handsome, out and proud gay basketball jock named Barry (Alex).


This begins Mando's path to self-discovery, as he becomes torn between doing the right thing for his current relationship with Krisha and following his heart's desire by choosing Barry.

“Oh, Mando” is directed by Eduardo Roy Jr., the director of award-winning movies “Pamilya Ordinaryo,” “Lola Igna,” “Bahay Bata,” “Quick Change,” and “F#*@BOIS.”

GMA Network Raises the Bar With It's Star-studded Drama Anthology ‘I Can See You’

11:08:00 PM

 

What comes to your mind when you read the phrase " I Can See You"? Probably, you'll freak out or something else. Or how about getting the sense that you are being watched? Or that you are not alone?  Well, you'll for sure get scared. 


But if you have ever felt like being spied upon whether by someone or something, more often than not, your instincts are correct. Researchers believe that humans are sensitive to gaze as it signals intimacy as well as danger; two of the things we need to pay attention to for our own well-being. 


Beginning September 28 (which it already started), GMA Network raises the bar with an exceptional and one-of-a-kind program featuring the biggest and brightest Kapuso stars in the drama anthology ‘I Can See You’ on the Telebabad block.

This unique drama anthology which highlights four mini-series – Love On The Balcony, High Rise Lovers, The Promise, and Truly. Madly. Deadly. – dwells on its common visual storytelling mnemonic device which is the use of a camera as a witness to the tales of love and mystery from everyday people; hence the title – I Can See You. 


  
The ground-breaking program gifts viewers with compelling, contemporary, and unique stories produced by four different teams in a remarkable four-week viewing experience.

In observance of anti-COVID-19 protocols alongside the Network’s precautionary measures, the cast and crew of the show underwent RT-PCR tests, lock-in tapings and strictly practiced government-mandated safety and health protocols on the set. 


Kick-starting the drama anthology is “Love On The Balcony” top-billed by Asia's Multimedia Star Alden Richards, Kapuso hunk Pancho Magno, and Kapuso leading Lady Jasmine Curtis-Smith. It tells the timely story of a wedding videographer, Gio (Alden), who crosses paths with a frontline nurse, Lea (Jasmine). Uninspired and creatively drained, Gio is encouraged by his business partner and friend Val (Pancho) to search for a potential fling during quarantine. After their unfortunate encounter, romance eventually blossoms between Gio and Lea amidst the pandemic. Is this the beginning of a beautiful chapter in their love story or is it just destiny’s way of putting people in our lives for a purpose?

Completing the cast are Denise Barbacena and Shyr Valdez. Love On The Balcony is directed by LA Madridejos which airs beginning September 28. 

  

Heating up primetime TV viewing on October 5 is the second installment of the series “High Rise Lovers” which stars Kapuso Premier Drama Actress Lovi Poe, actress-beauty queen Winwyn Marquez and multitalented Kapuso actor Tom Rodriguez. It follows the story of married couple Samantha (Lovi) and Luis (Tom) whose relationship dwindles as their opposing goals in life get the best of them. After moving into a new condominium unit, Samantha continues to strive for a big promotion at work while Luis, an unemployed contractor, is forced to accept a renovation job for another occupant – the mysterious and sultry Ysabel (Winwyn). Will Luis yield to the temptation of a new lover who comforts his bruised ego or will Samantha realize that her marriage is still worth saving?

Also starring in the episode are Teresa Loyzaga and Kenneth “Tetay” Ocampo. High Rise Lovers is under the helm of Monti Parungao. 

  

Bannered by talented Kapuso stars Andrea Torres, Yasmien Kurdi, Benjamin Alves and Paolo Contis, “The Promise” gives viewers more reasons to believe in the power of love this October 12. The story begins with a rich widowed man named Frank (Paolo) who loses his passion for life and became a recluse after losing his wife Clarisse (Yasmien) from an accident. When Jude (Benjamin), his cousin and right-hand man in the company, visits him in the lake house where he stays at, Frank takes an interest in the latter’s girlfriend Ivy (Andrea), an aspiring artist who is willing to do anything to take her family out of poverty.

Also playing an exciting role in this series is Maey Bautista. The Promise is directed by Zig Dulay.

Finally, set to bring mystery and romance is the last installment “Truly. Madly. Deadly.” headlined by Kapuso Drama King Dennis Trillo, versatile Kapuso actress Rhian Ramos, and Ultimate Star Jennylyn Mercado premiering on October 19. Coleen (Jennylyn) is a professional woman who, after being ridiculed online for a scandal with a married man, moves out of the city and works in a remote resort where she meets the mysterious resident IT guy named Drew (Dennis). Life seems to be going well for the recovering Coleen until her best friend turned enemy Abby (Rhian) shows up and her past begins to haunt her once again. 

  
Joining the talented cast of this episode is Jhoana Marie Tan and with the special participation of Ruby Rodriguez. Truly. Madly. Deadly is directed by Jorron Lee Monroy.

Don’t miss out on GMA Network’s newest and much-awaited offering this year ‘I Can See You’ beginning September 28, right after Encantadia, on the Telebabad block.
