Erich Gonzales is ABS-CBN's "Katorse"

Posted by JED on , under , , | comments (1)

Star Circle grand questor and Star Magic talent Erich Gonzales will star in the TV remake of the sexy film 'Katorse'.

Show in the early 80's, Katorse became the launching vehicle of Ms. Dina Bonnevie in full stardom. Katorse is known for the trademark "magic kamison"” wherein the usually young lead star of Lily Monteverde's Regal Films dons a sexy top which would look even sexier when the star goes for a swim and eventually possessed a wet look.

Katorse will also be the first starring role of Erich although we will not be expecting the TV adaptation to be as daring as the movie version.

Slated on a Sunday afternoon timeslot via ABS-CBN's Your Song Presents, Katorse will also star Xian Lim and PBB Teen edition grand winner Ejay Falcon.

The difference with WAKI OPM Music Awards from Myx Music Awards and other music award-giving bodies is that only 100% Pinoy creations were eligible to compete meaning revivals and tagalized versions and the likes were disqualified.

It’s also interesting to note that no GMA (kapuso) artist was even nominated in the WAKI OPM Awards.
