After almost two years, finally through Acer Philippines, a leading technology and innovations company have succeeded in pairing JM De Guzman and Jennylyn Mercado via its exciting Christmas treat—the #MalayangPasko Holiday Promo with a short flick online of the same title and was launched on Friday, December 8.
It can be remembered that De Guzman and Mercado were supposedly set to star in a love-drama movie, an official entry to Metro Manila Film Festival 2015; but the former had to back out due to personal issues he needed to deal with and the latter had Jericho Rosales as her leading man as Ethan Isaac.
Rosales won the Best Actor so as Mercado as Best Actress in the said festival that year.
In the recent video of Acer’s Christmas Promo—it featured the good chemistry of JM and Jennylyn as former lovers who went on separate ways. It can be recalled that the former had a quite similar struggle in the matters of the heart with another Kapamilya actress and via the character he effectively channeled certain emotions that evidently showed in the scenes with the Kapuso artist. The only difference is that—its conclusion didn’t end up in the usual route—both characters that De Guzman and Mercado portrayed did choose to be ‘friends’ and liberate themselves from the ‘what ifs’ and have seen the very essence of ‘what is’.
This December, Jennylyn is paired for the second time with Derek Ramsay via ‘All of You’, another entry to the MMFF 2017; and has a similar sounding title that of JM’s TV series in 2015—‘All of Me’. De Guzman is expected to do a film with TBA Studios after he announced that he is ‘clean’ or already substance-free via his Instagram account.
