In the past five episodes of The Journey to Star Circle, we talked about the humble beginnings of the Star Magic from being a start-up Talent Center into a premier talent agency, as well as the perils and perks of its most celebrated artists.
However, in the sixth episode tagged “Magic Connections”, we’re going to take a break from following the new batch of aspirants on their journey towards becoming full-fledged Kapamilya stars as we take a look back on the incredible connections established among the talents of the ever-growing family of Star Magic.
Through the years, innumerable groups and loveteams were formed. Some were able to make it big and conquer the test of time and continue to exist up to the present, while there were some who met their unfortunate disbandment that totally appalled and made us sad. Although we’re not certain about the true reason/s behind the breakup of their clique, there’s one thing that we are sure of – they were able to fulfill their mission of delivering extra entertainment, thrill, and joy to the audiences.
In our pursuit of knowing the real deal on being in a boy/girl band, we asked The Hunks members Piolo Pascual and Jericho Rosales, Gigger Boys members Enchong Dee and Robi Domingo, ASAP Coverboys member Zanjoe Marudo, and UD4 member Maja Salvador about their memorable experiences and the hard-hitting challenges they had while still in their now-defunct groups.
Apart from that, Enchong, whose perennial on-screen partner is Erich Gonzales, also relayed how it feels to be in an on-screen pair when the topic diverted into the world of loveteams. Julia Barretto, Angelica Panganiban, Daniel Padilla, and Kathryn Bernardo imparted as well their insights and experiences on being paired with their co-actors and fellow Star Magic talent.
Putting a kick of kilig in this episode was when KathNiel recalled how their formidable tandem began eight years ago and how it prospered into something romantic for around five years now.
Lastly, if there’s one tip that sought-after host Robi wants to relay to the up-and-coming talents, it would be, “I really, and firmly, believe that to last in this kind of industry, talent should be there, but most importantly pakikisama. Maraming may talent at maraming may angas pero iba ‘yong may talent ka at marunong kang makihalubilo, lalong-lalo na sa mga kasama mo.”
