He might have fallen short in his bid to become the Big Winner of Pinoy Big Brother Otso after being hailed as the 5th Big Placer, but pure-blooded Japanese yet proud pusong-Pinoy Fumiya Sankai has continuously earned the admiration of Filipinos even beyond the reality program.
And less than a year after his remarkable stint on PBB Otso as among the consistent favorite housemates, the jolly Konnichi-Wonder Vlogger has never failed to amuse and delight us with his media appearances, such as in his first-ever teleserye project, Make It With You.
Portraying Yuta Himura, an overseas worker who is close friends with protagonists Billy Dimagiba and Gabo Villarica, played by Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil respectively, Fumiya is seemingly not having a hard time in doing his role. He simply brandishes who he is in real life -- funny, naive, and genuine -- as what we can see in the clips included in this Kapamilya Toplist!
BEHIND-THE-SCENES with Make It With You’s Team Croatia
Those who have been tuned in to the primetime romantic drama were probably astonished upon hearing him utter "Yuta-e-nako" or "yuta-e-na", which is obviously his favorite expression. While that sounded like a curse word, he disclosed in one of his conversations with Gabo that it actually has no specific definition. However, their another friend Helen (Katya Santos) already forbade him to say it when they arrived here in the Philippines.
Apart from that, Yuta also never failed to amuse us with his animated expressions, notable quirks, and droll banters with the other characters.
It might be his comedic chops that's been given more emphasis in this stint, but we should not miss his promising acting skills and his capability to keep pace with his co-actors, too!
Yuta actually has already a lot of funny moments in Make It With You, but we don't want to spoil you with a lengthy article so you better click on the video and see those for yourselves!
