Both are more comfortable working with each while doing the romantic–comedy ‘Elise’ as they already have experienced doing an indie film entitled ‘Lila’ that was directed by Gino Santos in 2016.

According to Janine, Enchong Dee is one of her closest friends in showbiz and it happened that he is also a close friend of Rayver Cruz, Janine’s rumored boyfriend, a former Kapamilya actor who is now a Kapuso talent.

Janine was askedt if she would be willing to work again with his ex-boyfriend Elmo Magalona who is now on the Kapamilya network. She answered, “not for now.”

“Huwag na lang muna.  Marami pa namang iba riyan na hindi ko pa nakakatrabaho,” she answered.

She graduated in Ateneo de Manila taking up European Studies in the year 2011 as her parent’s requirement before she embarks on a showbiz career. And by the following year, she decided to be in showbiz and have more focus in that direction.

“Yun talaga ang gusto ng parents ko na tapusin muna ang pag-aaral bago mag-showbiz na sinunod ko naman.”

Janine has an upcoming TV series on the Kapuso network, a fantasy-drama entitle ‘Dragon Lady’ with Tom Rodriguez, Joyce Ching, and Edgar Allan Guzman to be directed by Paul Sta. Ana.

Enchong Dee defends Right to Voice out Opinions regarding State Issues

Enchong Dee defends Right to Voice out Opinions regarding State Issues

  • Enchong Dee defended himself, saying that he has the right to air his opinion regarding important issues of his homeland.
  • He also praised his Elise leading lady, Janine Gutierrez.

Kapamilya star and Star Magic artist Enchong Dee admitted that he’s vocal about issues especially those that are timely and important.

This resulted to the hate messages especially from supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte, whom statements he often criticized. He has also been labeled as a “dilawan”, which is a term coined for those who are against the current administration.

Others have then said that he’s just fishing for attention.

But in the press conference of his upcoming movie with Janine Gutierrez, titled Elise, he said that he doesn’t take the comments too seriously.

“This is a democracy. May karapatan tayong sabihin kung ano ang gusto nating sabihin. Pilipino naman ako bago ako artista. Hindi naman porke’t artista kami, wala na kaming karapatang magpahayag ng aming damdamin.

“Hindi naman pakikisawsaw sa isyu iyong makialam ka dahil karapatan at tungkulin mo iyon bilang mamamayan lalo na kung may gusto kang ipaglaban.”

https://www.instagram.com/p/Bs0DjrIHkI4/

On the other hand, he admitted that he really looks up to his leading lady as she makes work easy.

“She’s a na­tural actress. Napakagaan niyang katrabaho at wala kaming ilangan. Iyong level ng comfort namin kumpara noong una ka­ming magsama sa Lila, kakaiba.”

The Valentine movie by Regal Entertainment will be in cinemas starting February 6.

Enchong Dee to join Politics?

Enchong Dee to join Politics?

  • Enchong Dee reacted to rumors of him joining politics.
  • He answered that it was just a Star Magic inside joke and didn’t expect that it will be talked about.

Rumors have been going around that Kapamilya star Enchong Dee is seeking a government post in his hometown, Naga City.

In the press conference of his upcoming movie, Elise, on Wednesday, January 16, Dee clarified it once and for all. He said that the so-called political plan is just a joke inside their Star Magic family.

“I was in Sweden nung nagtatanong kung sino sa mga artista ng ABS ang tatakbo for this coming election. It was all just a joke within our Star Magic family, not knowing na after ko pala mag-joke, sinabi na ng Star Magic sa news natin na tatakbo ako.”

He said that people even tell him that the plan was such a waste as it didn’t really proceed.

“No, no, no. Every now and then, I would encounter people from ABS na sinasabi sa akin, sayang na hindi natuloy. I am sorry, it was a joke.”

https://www.instagram.com/p/BonoIfuANwk/

Dee added that he envisioned his life to remain peaceful and just serve the public in his own way.

“No, gusto ko tahimik ang buhay ko. Pakiramdam ko mas marami akong matutulungan kung wala ako sa pulitika talaga, and at least sarili kong pera ang ginagamit ko.”

“Kaya mali iyon bintang ni Gretchen Barretto.” Lolit Solis speaks up and defends Kris Aquino regarding bullying accusations

  • Lolit Solis defended Kris Aquino in a recent Instagram post saying that the latter doesn’t have mean bones in her body.
  • She added that Gretchen Barretto should know better as they were close friends for a while.

Amid the mess between Kris Aquino and the Falcis brothers, Lolit Solis spoke up and stated her side.

In her recent post, she said that Kris is impulsive and shocking sometimes but she does stand by her belief that the Queen of All Media doesn’t have a mean bone.

“Totoo na maarte siya, tackless, at kung minsan nakakasakit ng feelings dahil nga sinasabi what she thinks and feel na hindi niya alam nakaka-offend kung minsan pero para naman wala siya malisya pag sinabi at ginawa iyon.”

Hah hah ano ba iyan gabi na na-i post iyon mga naganap sa kasalan Alfred at Yasmine pero ang daming reaction. At naloka ako sa isang fan ni Kris Aquino ha. Talagang inalipusta pagka-tao ko. Hah hah. Di raw ako bagay sa isang disenteng okasyon at mga disenteng tao. Bongga alipusta to the bones. Grabe naman sineryoso iyon kagagahan ko at patunay ha na dami pa rin solid fans ni Tetay. Kaya nga ba takot ako magsama kami baka kuyugin ako mga solid Tetay. hah hah. Pero type ko offer niya ha, give niya ako everyday ng allowance bongga! Rich talaga Tetay kahit wah TV show. Bagay talaga sila ni Jomar Ang kaya lang baka nga wah siya type ni Papa Ramon Ang kasi 24 lang Jomar, 40 plus na Kris. Pero uso naman ngayon iyon noh, mas gurang babae sa men ‘di bah. So malay natin baka talagang meant for each other sila bongga. Hayan mama Joy Belmonte ha sabi ni Kris ‘di siya tatakbo sa 2019. Baka ayaw niya Mayor gusto niya Presidente.

She added that they always had the “love-hate” relationship but also has a soft spot for each other.

“Kahit pa nga sometimes nasasaktan namin ang feeling, nandun pa rin ang respeto.”

Solis then continued defending Aquino against the bullying and power-tripping accusations.

“One thing I can say, hindi si Kris ang tipo na magbibintang ng basta-basta, to put one down, kaya pag sinabi niya sure ako lalo at sensitive na issue na tutoo iyon bintang niya. Ang nangyari nga lang, sa sobrang ingay ng issue nagkaroon ng ibang perception, nagkaroon ng kampihan at pilian kung sino paniniwalaan. One thing, hindi at never na ginawa ni Kris ang power tripping.”

She then stated that Gretchen Barretto‘s statements in one of her posts is false and that “she should know” since she both she and Kris were once a close as friends.

“Kaya mali iyon bintang ni Gretchen Barretto. She should know, naging close sila for a while ni Kris at alam niya na never nito ginamit ang power to get something. Ay naku, buti na lang kaya na ni Kris ngayon to fight on her own kasi mukhang habang tumatanda siya nagkakapatung-patong ang problema niya.”

Hay Salve lalo ako nahihilo pag may mga ganap kay Kris Aquino. Kasi sa tagal namin nagkasama noon ni Kris, alam ko na kung minsan impulsive siya at bigla kung gumawa ng desisyon but I will always stand by my belief na wala siyang mean bones. Totoo na maarte siya, tackless, at kung minsan nakakasakit ng feelings dahil nga sinasabi what she thinks and feel na hindi niya alam nakaka-offend kung minsan pero para naman wala siya malisya pag sinabi at ginawa iyon. Kami ni Kris live, love and hate ang relationship pero I will say na may soft spot kami sa isa't isa. Or kahit pa nga sometimes nasasaktan namin ang feeling, nandun pa rin ang respeto. One thing I can say, hindi si Kris ang tipo na magbibintang ng basta-basta, to put one down, kaya pag sinabi niya sure ako lalo at sensitive na issue na tutoo iyon bintang niya. Ang nangyari nga lang, sa sobrang ingay ng issue nagkaroon ng ibang perception, nagkaroon ng kampihan at pilian kung sino paniniwalaan. One thing, hindi at never na ginawa ni Kris ang power tripping. Saksi ako ng kung paano niya sundin ang maghintay, at hindi ipilit na 'hoy, si Kris Aquino ako, ako unahin nyo' at to bully, hah hah, mas madalas nga siya ang binu-bully hah hah. Kaya mali iyon bintang ni Gretchen Barretto. She should know, naging close sila for a while ni Kris at alam niya na never nito ginamit ang power to get something. Ay naku, buti na lang kaya na ni Kris ngayon to fight on her own kasi mukhang habang tumatanda siya nagkakapatung-patong ang problema niya. At iyon sakit niya, sana maayos na. Totoo naman iyon feeling niya as a mother, paano at sino titingin sa mga anak niya kahit pa nga may maiiwan siya. Bata pa si Bimby at special si Joshua. Naku Kris, fight lang, kung iyon nga problema sa puso kaya mo, kaya mo rin ito. Mukha ka lang fragile pero fighter ang loob mo. Head on, fight. #lolitkulit #instatalk #71naako @krisaquino

A post shared by LolitSolisOfficial (@akosilolitsolis) on

On Saturday, January 5, Gretchen posted a screenshot of Nicko Falcis saying that he received death threats from Aquino. In the caption she wrote the she “feel” for Falscis.

“I salute him for his courage to speak the truth , fight for his family name & reputation inspite of the threat to his life No to bullies!!!! STOP POWER TRIPPING”

Celebrities react to “blasphemous statement” made by Pres. Rodrigo Duterte

Celebrities react to “blasphemous statement” made by Pres. Rodrigo Duterte

  • President Rodrigo Duterte makes a bold statement once again regarding the belief of the Christian church
  • Celebrities and politicians reacted to the president’s “who is this stupid God?” statement

President Rodrigo Duterte as sparked controversy once again when he called God “stupid” in a speech last June 22 in the opening of  2018 National ICT Summit in Davao City.

“So God was lonely, so he created paradise and that’s planet Earth. And God said, ‘I will create man,’ so there was Adam. God found that Adam was lonely, so he took one of his ribs and created woman. But God doubted his creation so he tested it. He called a snake and told it to give an apple to Eve.  Eve ate it and gave it to Adam. And so malice was born.

Who is this stupid God?  You created something perfect and then you think of an event that would destroy the quality of your work. How can you rationalize that God? How can you believe him? So now we’re all born with an original sin. Even in the womb, we already have sin. What kind of religion is that?”

Celebrities and politicians react to the president’s bold statement:

Actor Enchong Dee:“Full on Blasphemy… tsk tsk… I wonder how his followers will defend him this time”

Actress Rita Avila: “This is a reflection of you, Mr. President.
You only respect yourself.
You look at us like garbage cans where you freely throw your trach.
Wag naman ganun.
Tao kami.
Sa ngayon ang pakiramdam mo ay tao mo lang kami. Lang.
Kung ganya ang trato mo sa amin ay lalo lang liliit ang dignidad ng Pilipinas.
Katiting na nga lang ang meron tayo eh. (To all Duterte fans, I held much hope in him. But sorry, this is too much. You can only help spreading more trash by bashing and hating but I wish you spread GOOD WORDS instead to help clean all if us up. Clean the energies surrounging us and ur precious selves too. Te need to rise from too much hatred and trash. Sa ganito po tayo dapat mag hawak kamay.)
NOTE: I encourage those who will make COMMENTS to use positive and kind words instead. We should not help in adding up to the dirty energies around us. LET US HELP CLEAN UP.”

Friends and colleagues of Rita Avila commented on her Instagram post, expressing their agreement to her statement.

Actress Pinky Amador: “I have seen your support for him in the past, amiga @msritaavila, and who doesn’t want Safery, Security, Peace, and Change for the better? But it’s also the WAY and manner you do it sometimes matters even more than the end result. I am happy you have seen beyond the personality/magnetism and focused on the issues/accountability. It’s the duty of EVERY citizen to call out their leaders who SHOULD actually be serving the nation and not their personal interests or the allies. Lumang tugtugin na yung “what have you done for the country” since we all contribute to our Society.”

Actress Carmi MartinGrabe na bibig nitong si duterte. Ang walangya! Salbahe!

Physician and medical anthropologist Gideon Lasco: “Christians and non-Christians alike should condemn the insensitivity and rudeness of this man, who thinks of himself as a deity.”

Director Mae Cruz-Alviar: “This is TOO MUCH. This is EXTREMELY OFFENSIVE.”

Politicians also called out the president for his statement.

Opposition Senator Antonio Trillanes IV posted on his Twitter account that the president’s behavior is “the height of arrogance of power” and it should be clear that “Duterte is one evil man”.


Statement re Duterte’s blasphemy: I join the Filipino nation in expressing outrage against Duterte’s verbal attack against Christianity and God Himself. It is the height of arrogance of power not only to disrespect and spit on an individual’s faith but also to act as though he is a god. Worse, Duterte’s statements betrays the nature of his evil mind and is very much consistent with the deceitfulness, heartlessness and ruthlessness of his policies. It should be clear not to everyone that Duterte is one evil man.

Senator Panfilo Lacson also expressed his disagreement with the president’s sentiments.

“Between him and my God to whom I pray every single day and with whom I’ve found solace and comfort in all my difficult times, I don’t even have to think of my choice. May my God forgive him and make him atone for all his sins,”

The Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque then defends statement saying that it is the personal belief of the president and that Duterte has his own spirituality and people should not give it any meaning.

“Iyan po ay personal na paninindigan ng pangulo… Tingin ko ang ating pangulo ay merong personal na spirituwalidad pero nasa kanya na iyan at hindi na kinakailangang bigyan ng interpretasyon”

Carrot Man With Handsome Igorots

One of the highlights of this year’s festival was when a group of hunky and handsome Igorots made everyone drool. They paraded with their native bahag, exposing their chiseled body and even their bums.

The internet sensation, the Carrot Man himself, Jeyrick Sigmaton participated in her hometown’s grand festival. He posed with the handsome Igorots. They erased the stigma and the stereotyping for the Igorots, and proved that they are drool-worthy also just like anyone else can be.

Meteor Garden, Hana Yori Dango, Boys Over Flowers and Their Pinoy Counterparts?

Meteor Garden, Hana Yori Dango, Boys Over Flowers and Their Pinoy Counterparts?

What a great nostalgic feeling I’m having right now! I can still remember the days when I rush home just to tune in to this pretty addicting TV show which became part of my refined childhood memories. And now it is being shown again nationwide. I am to a certain extent convinced that this will once again give its audience, most of which belong to the teenage category, a bamboozling and remarkable feeling of infatuation, excitement and curiosity. Yes, I am talking about Taiwan’s “Meteor Garden”.

meteor garden

While the “Meteor Garden Fever” still exists up to this day which is something that I can’t argue about since I can see posts and comments about how eager people are looking forward to this show, let us not forget that Meteor Garden once had its rival shows produced by other countries like Korea and Japan namely, Boys Over Flowers/ Boys Before Flowers and Hana Yori Dango in that order. You can also find China’s version of the show but I am only going to mention the top three versions that I know. All of these were deemed as an adaptation of a Japanese shoujo manga called Hana Yori Dango (Boys Over Flowers) printed and demonstrated by Yoko Kamio. His work of art set the record for the bestselling shoujo Manga in Japan of all time which really deserved to be portrayed in front of the big screen.

HYD_vol13

Basically, these three adaptations follow the original Manga’s plot of flow of the story in which it revolved around Eitoku Academy, a school where the country’s most influential and powerful people’s children were being sent. Only a selected few or should I say the cream of the crop were allowed to be in that academy. It just so happened that the central character, Tsukushi Makino – a diligent and charming girl who came from a poor family. Unfortunately,  she came across with the academy’s elite group called F4 ( short for “Flower Four”) I just found its meaning as kind of inappropriate though since I’m expecting something like “Fearless Four” , “Furious Four” or “Freakish Four” LOL.

She was bullied, discriminated and insulted by the F4, by the way aside from its members being overly rich and prominent individuals, their handsome and elegant looks are something which can’t be denied and they were the apple of the eyes of all the girls inside the academy. Then add a bunch of drama and love story twists, and we’re going to have a wonderful TV series which will definitely captivate its audience of all ages. However, some of the details were modified according to each show’s production and management’s choices.

Now let’s take a look at each show’s main characters and decide which among them are the most suitable ones to portray the famous Manga, Hana Yori Dango’s characters.           ( Although the manga was made in Japan, we should still not be biased and not immediately lean towards Japan’s own adaptation though ) Peace!

I will not be going over the details of these actors’ performance and how well they portrayed the characters that were assigned to them since you probably already knew if they did well and if they went above or below your standards considering the fact that most of you guys have unquestionably watch these three series before if you are a self anointed avid fan.

The best thing that I can do is to give you a short clip which contains all of these characters and it’s up for you to decide who to pick among them.

My question is, if you will be given a chance to make a “Dream Team” or a fantasy cast of characters to portray the Hana Yori Dango manga wherein you are only allowed to choose between the actors above, who would you choose? Mine will be ( Lee Min Ho, Inoue Mao, Vic Zhou, Kim Bum and Vanness Wu )

Pinoy Adaptation of Hana Yori Dango 

All I can say is “Why not?” Since there have been many adaptations being made by other countries which became major TV hits, why don’t we make our own version of it? Who knows, we might even break the popularity that these three TV shows have attained before. But first, we have to figure out who will be the possible actors which will star in our very own Filipino version. There have been a lot of attempts to finally make a Pinoy version of the series. It was even said to have already been finalized way back 2011 and it was supposed to be called “Brat Boys Beyond” (awful name…ugh!) starring Sarah Geronimo and other quite unknown starlets. Good thing it didn’t push through and ABS-CBN managed to get away with having the guts to face embarrassment because I am pretty sure that I will surely flop.

Now another hot topic resurfaces as this cute and amazing Pinoy version of the viral craze will be composed of Coco martin,Matteo guidicelli,Daniel padilla,Enchong dee and Sarah Geronimo. Do you think this will work out? If not, then who do you think suits each characters more? Feel free to suggest. =)
