Alden Richards Takes on an Extraordinary Mission in Kapuso Fantaseries “Victor Magtanggol”, Premieres July 30 on GMA Telebabad

Expect no less than the best from GMA Network with the launch of the highly-anticipated and ground-breaking telefantasya, Victor Magtanggol.

Inspired by the Norse Mythology, the drama series features the country's most respected and talented artists headlined by Kapuso prime actor Alden Richards who is all set to take on an extraordinary mission of protecting good from evil as Victor Magtanggol.

Making the series even grander are the actors in the mythological world: John Estrada as Loki, the god of deception who wants to get hold of the Mjolnir to use its power to create monstrous offsprings; Andrea Torres as Sif, the last wife of Thor and the golden-haired goddess of love and family who trains Victor how to control his powers and use the Mjolnir; Pancho Magno as Modi, Thor's son and the god of battle who will eventually be one of Victor's greatest rivals; Miguel Faustman as Magni/Magnus, the other son of Thor who kept the Mjolnir and with the special participation of Conan Stevens as Thor, the god of thunder and owner of the powerful hammer, Mjolnir.

Joining the powerhouse ensemble are the important characters in Victor's life: The Magtanggol Family of Victor with Al Tantay as Tomas Magtanggol, a loving father to Victor and his siblings; Chynna Ortaleza as Lynette Magtanggol-Domingo, the strict yet caring older sister of Victor; Dion Ignacio as Perci Domingo, the devoted and funny husband of Lynette; Lindsay De Vera as Anne Magtanggol, the kikay cosplayer and younger sister of Victor; Reese Tuazon as Honeylyn, Anne's best friend; Yuan Francisco as Meloy Domingo, the sole child of Lynette and Perci and the first one to know the secret identity of his uncle Victor; and playing a very important role is Ms. Coney Reyes as Vivienne, the mother of Victor who got separated from him after a long time.

Playing equally vital roles are the members of the Regalado Family: Eric Quizon as Hector Regalado, the ambitious and hungry for power politician; Freddie Webb as Renato Regalado, the father of Hector; Maritoni Fernandez as Alice Regalado, the second wife of Hector; Kristoffer Martin as Lance Espiritu, the brooding and enigmatic stepson of Hector; and Janine Gutierrez as Gwen Regalado, Hector's daughter who becomes a field reporter covering news about Hammerman. Eventually, she falls in love with him.

Victor works as an OFW to look for his mother Vivienne (Coney Reyes). He becomes friends with Magnus (Miguel Faustman), the curator of the museum where he works for. Magnus' life will be jeopardized because of Loki (John Estrada). Victor will find out that Magnus is not a mortal being and he is the god Magni and one of Thor's sons. Before Magnus dies, he will give Victor a magical compass that will lead Victor to a mysterious mountain. Victor will find an iron gauntlet that will allow him to use the Mjolnir, the powerful hammer of Thor (Conan Stevens).

Victor comes home to the Philippines and becomes Hammerman, the courageous superhero of his town. In his adventures, he battles monsters and form alliances with Norse gods in order to protect the people he loves from the schemes of Loki.

The creative team of the TV series is composed of headwriter Denoy Punio with writers Glaiza Ramirez, Ken De Leon, brainstormers Marlon Miguel, Erwin Bravo and concept creator Jules Katanyag.

Leading the team are creative director Roy Iglesias, creative consultants Suzette Doctolero, and Dode Cruz.

This original series, created by the GMA Drama group, is headed by the SVP for Entertainment Group Lilybeth G. Rasonable, VP for Drama Redgie A. Magno, AVP for Drama Cheryl Ching-Sy, Program Manager Nini Matilac and Executive Producer Mona Mayuga.

Singing the theme song "Superhero Mo" is popular rap group Ex Battalion featuring Alden Richards.

Kapuso Boy Band “One Up” to Stage First Major Concert on August 24 at SM Sky Dome

One Up, the boy band GMA Artist Center launched two years ago, is set to stage their first concert this August 24 at SM North EDSA Sky Dome.

The group is composed of 10 talented young men namely Nikki Co, Kevin Sagra, Jay Arcilla, Prince Clemente, Joemarie Nielsen, Arjan Jimenez, Ralf King, Dave Bornea, Yasser Marta and Brent Valdez.

"We sing and dance together. But this year, we want to put a twist on these. We want that, every year, we would be able to add something new. For this time, we want to showcase our individuality especially in the fields we excel in," says Valdez, discovered after failing to make the finals of the boy-band reality show, To The Top.

The band promises to showcase exciting numbers that will highlight the members' individual talents apart from performances as a group.

"I like rock songs, so for the concert I arranged some numbers that I think fits my personality and that I haven't shown before. As a group, we are more on pop, but for the concert we're going to show our own styles. For me, personally, it's rock like Bon Jovi," shared Yasser, a finalist of Eat…Bulaga's "Spogify" segment. After that stint, he then went on to make appearances in the late-night show Walang Tulugan of the late Master Showman, German Moreno.

He added, "The concert isn't like any show we do out of town. It will run for two hours. That's why we work out for endurance so that our energy from start to end will be the same."

Their recently released single, "Smile," will also be the boy band's key song to serenade the audience as they deliver their messages of love and gratitude to their fans.

"If you saw earlier, there were parts where we performed as a group. Then, we were six for the dance and singing. You can see that in our concert. That's the taste of what we will be doing. There will be numbers that will be three-by-threes for the dance and then duets and the full band. There's going to be beatbox, a capella, drummers and also keyboard," noted one member.

"We go to the gym to be fit and for our talent, we have to train our voices for the concert. You have to be focused all the time," says Thai-Filipino Joemarie Nielsen. He was a finalist of Starstruck who reached 13th place overall in the competition.

Joining them onstage are fellow Kapuso stars Migo Adecer, Karlo Duterte, Sofia Pablo, Will Ashley and Andrea Torres. The concert is produced by Gion Prestige Productions, under the direction of Marvin Caldito with choreography by Mark Benzon Pelota.

Tickets, priced at P1,600, are now available for purchase at SMTickets.com.
