Starting January 5 (Tokyo, Sydney, Riyadh, and Pacific time) with the episode entitled Piyesa, multi-awarded host Charo Santos-Concio tells the story of today’s fastest-rising star Angeline Quinto portrayed by KC Concepcion. While she never knew her real parents then and felt she was not pretty enough for the world of show business, Angeline set out to succeed with her powerful vocals and tongue-in-cheek kind of charm.
From the story of singer Angeline Quinto, MMK Classics moves to the dramatic turn of events in the lives of today’s biggest comedy actresses –Pokwang and Ai-ai delas Alas. While they bring smiles to the faces of Filipino audiences, comediennes Pokwang and Ai-ai show that it is certainly not easy to make people laugh when one is going through challenges in life.
On January 12, MMK Classics proves that comedy is no laughing matter in the episode called Sing-along bar. In the story named after the place where Ai-ai started, the blockbuster actress tries to make it big without the support of her biological mother but manages to rise to fame eventually with her brand of humor. Acclaimed actress Maricel Soriano who is a celebrated star herself, plays Ai-ai.
Meanwhile on January 19, Pokwang shows how she triumphs over tragedy in an episode called Teddy Bear where the versatile actress does her own portrayal. A lot of viewers can relate to Pokwang who once worked as an overseas Filipino in Japan. As fate would have it, one of her children dies while working overseas. Despondent at first, Pokwang set out to overcome this chapter in her life and become one of show business’ most versatile actresses who can dabble in both comedy and drama.
To cap the first month of the year, MMK Classics shares the intriguing story of phenomenal 80’s star Julie Pearl Postigo, more widely known as Julie Vega, on January 26. Portrayed fittingly by Angelica Panganiban who has an uncanny resemblance to the actress, the episode dramatizes how Julie started as a child actress and set out to become one of the endearing stars of her time.
MMK Classics can be viewed Saturdays at the following times: 11 a.m. Milan time; 12:45 p.m. Riyadh time; 7:30 p.m. Tokyo time and 9:30 p.m. Sydney time and Sundays, Pacific time at 3:20 p.m.
