It was in 2009 when we first saw Bugoy Cariño as a very cute and talented little kid on Star Circle Kid Quest Season 3: Search for the Kiddie Idol. He was just 6 years old back then, but he was the most talented on their batch, especially when it comes to dancing. With this, Bugoy was hailed as the grand champion for that season on the said talent search.
After his winning moment, Bugoy’s career in the industry started. He has been an endorser of many local brands in our country, and he continuously appeared on several films and television shows. He was cast on the kiddie gag show Goin’ Bulilit in 2009 to 2016, took on numerous roles in MMK and became one of the ‘kilig ambassadors’ on It’s Showtime’s second batch of Hashtags in 2017.
And the person who supported him all the way was his idol and girlfriend, UAAP star athlete EJ Laure of the UST Golden Tigresses volleyball team. But EJ also had her own setbacks, having been sidelined with a shoulder injury that kept her from playing last year. And with Bugoy by her side, she hopes to return in Season 81.
It is indeed admirable how they have kept their relationship sweet and blissful through the challenges they faced.
Just look at how much the ‘kiddie idol’ we knew has grown into a handsome young man together with the ‘idol’ of his life in these photos!
