Jairus Aquino and Allen Cecilio invite us for their upcoming Ipaglaban Mo episode titled “Utang,” which will air this Saturday, June 22. Based on its trailer, the story will mainly be about a student whose life will be put into danger because of owing money from someone, in order to pay for his own school fees and be able to take his class exams. With them in the episode are Isabel Rivas, Allen Dizon, Eric Nicolas and many more.
While Jairus has appeared several times on Ipaglaban Mo, this will be Allen’s debut on the said show. We all remember Allen as one of the most remarkable contenders in 2016’s Pinoy Boyband Superstar. He shares how his first stint on the crime drama anthology program was surprising and fun.
As for what they learned from the story, Allen tells us he realized that we must avoid owing money as much as we can from someone who we do not know well. On the other hand, Jairus shares that he saw how important it is for people to be knowledgeable of their rights.
Watch the rest of Jairus Aquino and Allen Cecilio’s interview in the video above to know how they prepared for their roles and what the challenges they faced while doing #IMUtang were.
