Singer-songwriter Yeng Constantino is fond of superheroes. In fact, she has penned a song about superheroines which became a chart-topping hit years ago. So, it was no surprising that Yeng played along well with the current Darna trend as the Pinoy cinema lenses search for the next woman worthy of giving life to the said character. She posted an edited photo of herself wearing the iconic Darna costume which garnered hearts and positive comments in social media.
When asked to do her own Darna audition in TWBA, the Pinoy Dream Academy alumna gamely said yes to the challenge. And to even make herself stand out from the sea of other female aspirants, Yeng did the Darna transformation in her own “Dalagang Pilipina” version.
While Yeng was doing the challenge, her good friend, Erik Santos cheered on for her. The friendship between Yeng and Erik has grown deeper in time and the ASAP stage and all their other musical collaborations have become a witness to it. 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 once perceived Yeng as “maarte” after watching an episode of Pinoy Dream Academy where Yeng showed her “pakipot” side amid her on-screen romance with RJ Jimenez. Yeng, on the other hand, doubted Erik’s character due to his green jokes.
But, later on, Yeng saw how good of a man Erik is. “’Yun lang ‘yung type of humor pero ‘pag nakilala mo si Erik, malalalim ‘tong tao”, Yeng’s good words her friend.
