“Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives you a fairytale.”
Speaking truth to this cliché quote she affixed as caption to one of her uploads on Instagram, dancer-actress Dawn Chang is obviously living in her own fairytale as she has finally found her happily ever after in her doting beau, Justin Cuyugan.
It was in January 2018 when she surprised us with her shocking revelation of dating the actor through posting a photo of them standing close to each other atop the prominent Twin Peaks Hills in San Francisco, California during their holiday vacation. This created a hullaballoo in the worldwide web as netizens talked about it for days and various media outlets featured it on their respective pages and channels.
A year later, they once again caused a stir to every showbiz enthusiast as they spilled more details about their romance in their guesting in the ABS-CBN morning show Umagang Kay Ganda this Thursday, February 7, wherein they also imparted to the viewers the recipe of Justin’s late father for the famous Filipino staple dish Bicol Express.

In this interview, they revealed that they first met on the set of the long-running primetime series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano wherein they portrayed two guest roles for its first book. Dawn confessed that she used to think of him as true-to-life gay, given how he flawlessly played his gay character, but proved her assumption wrong when he texted her out-of-the-blue after four months since the last time they saw each other.
Although Justin was married before and has three kids to his demised wife, the talented GirlTrend said that she never had any issue regarding those and fully embraced the responsibilities of being an instant homemaker to their family. Besides, she’s also thankful with the warm reception from his three adorable children who fondly calls her “Tita Dawn”.
The exact date when they became official might be a secret, but those who follow them on IG know how strong their love and bond are as seen on the photos and videos of them together. They share the penchant for travelling, cooking, and working out, and are often spotted doing those alongside each other.
Their romance might have received snide remarks from those who disapprove, but there are still those who believe that Dawn and Justin’s relationship is for keeps and could withstand the test of time. Just like what she wrote in one of her posts: “We are two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other.”
