The life of a young adult wouldn’t feel as thrilling without a dash of romance. But at the end of the day, more than the kilig life may bring, family and friendship and dignity are more important. This would have to be one of the best lessons we can learn from the Kapamilya series Bagong Umaga.
The coming-of-age drama introduced a refreshing ensemble of six young stars. Heaven Peralejo takes on her breakthrough role with Tony Labrusca, Barbie Imperial, Yves Flores, Michelle Vito, and Kiko Estrada. Such an exciting mix of sweet, feisty, and fun! And here’s how they bond as a real-life barkada off-cam!
Joking around and poking fun of each other
The good vibes begin even before the cameras start grinding! We love how the gang find hilarity and adventure even in the ordinary like playing with the props (Tony enjoys taking on the wheelchair), munching down in-between takes (who do you think is the “tirador ng food props?”), just goofing around, exchanging endless ‘asaran,’ and showing off their silly dance moves.
In past interviews, Bagong Umaga stars called Yves as the life of the set and we can see exactly why. You have to check out his sexy booty sway! He also plays some ‘bromance’ with Tony. Are we seeing another BL tandem in-the-making?
Getting along with the seniors and production team
They say that youthful energy is contagious, so it’s not surprising to see the senior artists and production staff keeping up with the enthusiasm. The show’s director, Carlo Po Artillaga, bring in some millennial vibes as well.
Doing something productive
When you have a fitness buff like Tony in the barkada, free days are meant for workouts. It was actually Heaven’s idea to gather the group for an afternoon exercise with Tony as the trainer. The bunch was taking things seriously until Yves joined them and turned the activity into a silly dance showdown!
These energetic young stars may love to goof around but when it’s time for work, they impress everyone with their sterling performances. They know how to listen and are always eager to learn. And those qualities, apart from their talent, will surely usher them to bigger success.
Lastly, they keep the rapport sweet by sharing lots and lots of smiles – also a good way to brighten up every “bagong umaga” on the set.
Show this bunch some love by watching their new series Bagong Umaga on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z Channel 11.
