Celebrating the overwhelming success of Halik, the teleserye’s cast, together with the people behind the show, held a thanksgiving party recently.
In a fun-filled night with the hashtag #HalikNgPasasalamat, main cast members Jericho Rosales, Yen Santos, Yam Concepcion and Sam Milby marked their incredible milestone of episodes having record-setting high ratings in the past few weeks.
This included the gripping, scandalous October 25 episode “Bistadong Halik” that brought the illicit affair of Ace (Sam) and Jade (Yam) out in the open, with Jade’s husband Lino (Jericho) excruciatingly witnessing the treachery first-hand. It notched an incredibly high 27.1% rating for its timeslot, based on Kantar Media figures.
And a few weeks after setting that all-time high record, another episode would then eclipse it.
In the “Salpukang Halik” episode aired on November 8, wherein all four main characters faced each other for the first time since the adulterous romance was uncovered. In what became one of the most talked about scenes in the series, Ace’s wife Jacky (Yen) doused a pitcher of cold water on a drunken Jade, in retaliation for the latter’s abysmal verbal tirade against her during the event. This garnered 29.2%, its highest turnout so far, based also on Kantar Media nationwide ratings.
Top bosses joined them in their festivities, namely the RSB Drama Unit head director Ruel S. Bayani, ABS-CBN TV Production head Laurenti Dyogi and ABS-CBN Chief Operating Officer for Broadcast Cory Vidanes.
Giving us a sample of what transpired, Yam posted a clip of her jamming session with co-leads Sam Milby and Jericho Rosales on her Instagram account. They performed the Sugarfree song “Makita Kang Muli,” the theme song of Jericho’s 2005 teleserye “Ang Panday,” with Yam on the drums, Sam on the guitar and Jericho on vocals.
Cheers to Halik for their astounding accomplishments! Watch the continuing impeccable drama weeknights after Ngayon at Kailanman on Primetime Bida.
