The friendship between Erik Santos and Yeng Constantino has grown deeper in time. Their performances on ASAP Natin ‘To stage and other musical collaborations are proof of this bond. But, there was a time when these two good friends had negative assumptions about one another; proving that sometimes, first impressions don’t always last.
Erik recalled the first time he saw Yeng on the Kapamilya reality show Pinoy Dream Academy. “Arteng-arte po ako sa kanya”, Erik said while looking back on those moments when Yeng had quite an on-screen romance with RJ Jimenez, her fellow dreamer inside the academy. “Masyadong pakipot”, Erik added referring to Yeng’s “maarte” moves in the show.
On Yeng’s part, she admittedly doubted Erik’s character due to his green jokes. But, later on, she saw how good of a man he is. “’Yun lang ‘yung type of humor pero ‘pag nakilala mo si Erik, malalalim ‘tong tao,” Yeng’s good words for Erik.
Proving their closeness are the playful remarks between them. Yeng revealed that Erik is fond of calling her sexy. “’Pag siya ‘yung nagsasabi, ramdam ko talagang totoo. Kasi mahilig siya mang-asar ‘pag ‘di ka maganda, so ‘pag positive [‘yung comment], baka totoo nga,” Yeng reacted to Erik’s ‘sexy’ remarks.
In the “Sagot Kita, Friend” game, they further proved how well they know each other by answering questions about the other person. Yeng shared that Erik is an extremely vain person and that he doesn’t doesn’t want to share his dressing room with Boyband PH. “Nararamdaman mo ‘yung age mo,” she explained. On the other hand, Erik shared that Yeng is not a big fan of the hit song Buwan because everyone else is already making their own versions. “Dapat nauna ko,” Yeng jokingly added.
