As thriving celebrities and newly signed Star Magic artists during the Black Pen Day event, Kapamilya love teams Ashley del Mundo, Tan Rocal, Karina Bautista and Aljon Mendoza are excited for the next chapter in their journeys. Get to know all about this by watching their Hotspot interview!
Ashley and Tan were the first to have a chat with Beshie ng Bayan DJ Jhai Ho. It’s the first time for AshTan to be on the live show together, so it was a kilig moment for fans everywhere.
The stars each shared how grateful and blessed they are to be part of the Star Magic family. For Ashley, she could definitely feel that dreams do come true as she used to just imagine herself as one of the stars when she was a kid. Tan feels the same way, and truly did not expect that so many doors would open for him as he pursued his passion to become an artist.
Eventually, the Pinoy Big Brother-born love team AshTan would love to work together with other love teams. One in particular that both of them idolize and hope to collaborate with soon is the Kapamilya on and off screen couple LizQuen (Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil). Tan even shared that they are the one love team that never fails to make him feel kilig every time.
DJ Jhai and AshTan continue to talk about what they look forward to and how their current projects are doing. Ashley is performing amazingly on the top trending romantic series He’s Into Her while Tan is busy with other projects that are still in the works.
Although they are currently working on different things, they still remain very close and constantly catch up. After all, Ashley shared something they both understand, “To grow in the industry, we have to experience different things and explore.” So when they work on a project as a love team again, we know that they will be better honed artists.
Before DJ Jhai let them go, he dared them to do the “How Well Do You Know Each Other Challenge”. A bunch of questions were thrown around and we got to find out if they know each other’s favorite food, if Ashley knows Tan’s birthday, and if Tan knows Ashley’s favorite color.
Netizens weren’t left hanging because as soon as AshTan finished their lovely chat, DJ Jhai welcomed Karina and Aljon.
Karina and Aljon also wasted no time to share how happy they are to finally call themselves Star Magic artists. Ever since Karina was a kid, it has been her and her family’s dream for her to become one. Aljon is overwhelmed with the stream of blessings that have opened up for him being part of Star Hunt and the Rise Artists studio as well. It’s also a major milestone for him to finally achieve the “tatak Star Magic”.
They are, of course, still big dreamers even after their stint on PBB. As Karina put it, “Dati abot-tanaw lang, ngayon abot-kamay na” so it’s natural for them to work hard in getting a movie, lead roles, and explore various genres.
Out of curiosity, DJ Jhai wondered how their lives would be if they weren’t as famous as they are now. They challenged KarJon to imagine that they are strangers meeting for the first time. This random skit immediately turned into a delightful meet cute scene! Aljon pulled off some sweet moves and slipped in a couple of smooth pick-up lines that made Karina (and us) swoon.
Continuing the fun activity, DJ Jhai asked them to introduce each other to him as if he didn’t know them yet. Karina described Aljon with all his wonderful qualities as a person and Aljon introduced Karina as “babaeng nagpapasaya sa akin”.
Before finishing the interview, the group chatted some more about KarJon’s relationship and had a blast doing the “Alphabet Challenge” to test how fast KarJon can name items in the given categories.
