After Paraiso, ABS-CBN sets the bar higher with the newest Kapamilya Gold action-drama series, "Dugong Buhay" created by national artist Director Carlo J. Caparas. Present during the grand press conference held at 9501 Restaurant, ELJ Bldg. ABS-CBN compound were the veteran stars, Ana Capri, Ronnie Quizon, Christian Vasquez, Lito Pimentel, along with the new stars Yam Concepcion, Jed Montero, Yen Santos, Ahron Villena, Arjo Atayde featuring Ejay Falcon as Victor. Directors Toto Natividad and Mickey Del Rosario shared to us how they have been privileged to work with the cast of Dugong Buhay paying tribute to workers mistreated by their landlords. Starring Nonie Buencamino, Sunshine Cruz, Pen Medina, Ketchup Eusebio with the special participation of Carlo Aquino and Valerie Concepcion, Dugong Buhay is a story of the lifetime search for vengeance of a hacienda worker named Simon against the cruelty of the De Lara family. The plot thickens as Simon will use his own son Victor (played by Ejay Falcon) to destroy the people who maltreated his family. The trailer was already exciting enough to make us all anticipate for its premiere on April 8, 2013 replacing Paraiso. Ejay Falcon was so humbled seeing his poster during the presscon and the rest of the cast shared their gratitude to the staff for the opportunity to be in the Caparas' masterpiece on television.
I was so excited to meet Ms. Ana Capri because I've been a fan of her movies and I truly believe she is one of the best actresses of this generation. Ms. Sunshine Cruz who will play Isabel De Lara was also thankful to ABS-CBN for the trust and since she had long considered Direk Carlo J. Caparas as her first mentor in showbiz, she became more excited to be back on TV.
Direk Mickey Del Rosario also shared with me his experience and excitement working with veteran directors Carlo J. Caparas and Toto Natividad making Dugong Buhay relevant to the present time. The novel once renowned to be a social awakening will come to life with suspense and thrilling action-drama scenes at Dugong Buhay slated to air on April 8, 2013. Will we unleash our own Simon or will we understand the many Simon in society in Dugong Buhay? Let's all watch Dugong Buhay starting April 8, 2013 at ABS-CBN Kapamilya Gold.
