Korea's Favorites Han So-hee, Park Hee-soon, Ahn Bo-hyun, Kim Sang-ho, Lee Hak-ju and Jang Yull in Star in Netflix's Action Series "Undecover"

Netflix, the world’s leading streaming entertainment service, confirmed casting for its new action noir series "Undercover" (working title). The outstanding team of actors includes Han So-hee, Park Hee-soon, Ahn Bo-hyun, Kim Sang-ho, Lee Hak-ju and Jang Yull. 

Undercover (working title) tells the story of Ji-u, who joins a drug cartel and becomes a mole in the police force to seek the truth behind her father’s death. She encounters harsh truths in the course of carrying out her revenge. 

Han So-hee, best known for her recent performance in the hit series The World of the Married, takes on the powerful role of Yun Ji-u, who enters a criminal organization to avenge her father who died under suspicious circumstances. She becomes the organization’s undercover agent in the police force and begins delving into the secret behind her father’s death. 

Park Hee-soon (The Witch: Part 1. The Supervision, 1987) portrays Choi Mu-jin, who is the kingpin of Dongcheon, the country’s top drug cartel. He is an indecipherable character who takes Yun Ji-u under his wings and turns her into an undercover agent. 

Ahn Bo-hyun, who made an impression as the not-so-hateable villain in Itaewon Class, will play police detective Jeon Pil-do of the narcotics unit, who is Ji-u’s competent, gutsy and scrupulous partner in investigation. 

Kim Sang-ho, best known to Netflix viewers for his performance in the popular Korean original series Kingdom, will play Cha Gi-ho, the chief of the narcotics unit. He becomes obsessed with bringing down the Dongcheon cartel before his retirement, mightily clashing with Choi Mu-jin in the process. 

Lee Hak-ju (Sweet Munchies, The World of the Married, Watching) will play Choi Mu-jin’s underling Jung Tae-ju, whose unconditional loyalty and obedience earns him the rare trust of his boss. 

Jang Yull will portray Do Gang-jae, a cartel member ousted for causing trouble. He later wields his vengeful knife against Yun Ji-u, adding another layer of conflict to the story. 

Promising thrilling action and explosive characters, Undercover (working title), written by Kim Va-da (Life Risking Romance, The Huntresses), will be produced by STUDIO SANTA CLAUS ENTERTAINMENT Co., Ltd (f.k.a Fleet Co., Ltd) and directed by Kim Jin-min, who amazed audiences with the Netflix original series Extracurricular in the first half of 2020. 

Undercover (working title) will be released worldwide, only on Netflix.

Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Winners to be Announced on GMA-7 on October 25

Miss Universe Philippines National Director and Miss Universe 2011 3rd runner-up Shamcey Supsup-Lee announced that the much-anticipated coronation night of the first-ever Miss Universe Philippines will be aired over GMA 7 on October 25. 

We’re happy to officially announce that Miss Universe Philippines 2020 will be aired this October 25 on GMA!” she said in an interview on 24 Oras. 

Shamcey also said that it will be a "mix of online and actual pageant." The pageant released the Ring Light series - an eight-episode series that brings viewers beyond the preparations for the pageant by featuring the passion, hard work, and the advocacies that each candidate stands for, to spread hope and inspiration to Filipinos especially during these trying times. They used the word ring light in the title since the candidates were given their own ring light and production team to shoot the needed footages for each episode. 
"People would always say that maybe pageants are not essential at this time. We are here to rally initiatives and spread kindness. We are not just glitz and glamour, we are harbingers of hope. But of course marami pa ding mga fun activities like makeup, runway. And eventually, on the finale, you will be able to watch the coronation night of the first ever Miss Universe Philippines." she added.

The Ring Light series is also a fundraising activity of the organization. Portions of the proceeds from the subscription fee will either be donated to a specific organization that the pageant has sponsored or a candidate's chosen beneficiary. 

Fans can check their chosen candidates' Instagram page for the referral code to use in buying their subscription. All episodes will be streamed on Empire.ph.

Who will be the Philippines’ next representative in the Miss Universe competition and maybe follow in the footsteps of former Miss Universe winners Gloria Diaz, Margie Moran, Pia Wurtzbach, and Catriona Gray? 

Catch the coronation night on GMA-7 on October 25.

First Look: "The Comeback Trail," an Action-Packed Comedy Starring Robert de Niro, Morgan Freeman, and Tommy Lee Jones

TBA Studios has released the official trailer for the action-packed comedy “The Comeback Trail”. 

Watch the trailer on the following links: 

In “The Comeback Trail”, two movie producers (Robert De Niro and Zach Braff) who owe money to the mob (Morgan Freeman) set up their aging movie star Duke Montana (Tommy Lee Jones) for an insurance scam to try to save themselves. The plan is simple: “accidentally” kill Montana during a stunt and then collect the insurance money. 

The big hitch in the plan, however, is that Montana can’t seem to die. In the trailer alone, the washed-up action star hilariously and impressively makes it out alive after each death-defying stunt. 

Hollywood screen legends and Oscar winners—Robert De Niro, Tommy Lee Jones, and Morgan Freeman lead the star-studded cast for “The Comeback Trail”. Other cast members include Zach Braff (TV’s Scrubs), Emile Hirsch (Once Upon A Time in Hollywood), Eddie Griffin (Undercover Brother), and Kate Katzman (This Is The Year). 

George Gallo directs from a script he wrote with Josh Posner in a remake of Harry Hurwitz’s 1982 film of the same name. 

Coming soon to Philippine cinemas, “The Comeback Trail” is produced by Storyboard Media and distributed by Cloudburst Entertainment in the US and TBA Studios in the Philippines.

Kyla and Kiko “KIKX” Salazar Set Off '90s R&B Nostalgia in New Song "TLC"

Queen of R&B Kyla and songwriter-producer Kiko “KIKX” Salazar are set on pulling listeners to a soothing ‘90s R&B music throwback with their upcoming Star Music single “TLC,” dropping on music platforms this Friday (October 9). 

The track, which professes affection for a special someone and voices anticipation for a more intimate relationship, carries a heavy R&B vibe so KIKX said it was only fitting that the Philippines’ Queen of R&B brought it to life. 

Nothing excites me more than working with someone I’ve looked up to since the beginning of my songwriting journey,” he shared, recalling how in 2008 he would pretend to write songs for Kyla. 

A few years later, to my surprise, she recorded a few of those songs, and another year after, won my first Awit Awards with her,” he added. “So celebrating my 10 years of music would not be complete without our R&B queen and now my dear friend, Kyla.” 

Composer KIKX also refers to “TLC” as “the ultimate tribute to the ‘90s era” as it bears the influence of American artist Babyface, whom he credits as a great inspiration to him as a musician. 

It is also one of the songs under KIKX’s “After Dark ‘The Final Hour’” EP to celebrate his 10th year anniversary in the music industry. Sam Mangubat’s “Hindi Na Nga” and Lance Busa’s “Sa Aking Mundo” are also part of the project. 

Meanwhile, Kyla just recently collaborated with her fellow female Southeast Asian artists for the inspirational single “HEAL” for the benefit of ABS-CBN’s Pantawid ng Pag-ibig. 

Watch out for the release of “TLC” on digital streaming platforms this Friday (October 9)!

About "The Prom" 

Dee Dee Allen (three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep) and Barry Glickman (Tony Award winner James Corden) are New York City stage stars with a crisis on their hands: their expensive new Broadway show is a major flop that has suddenly flatlined their careers. Meanwhile, in small-town Indiana, high school student Emma Nolan (newcomer Jo Ellen Pellman) is experiencing a very different kind of heartbreak: despite the support of the high school principal (Keegan-Michael Key), the head of the PTA (Kerry Washington) has banned her from attending the prom with her girlfriend, Alyssa (Ariana DeBose). When Dee Dee and Barry decide that Emma's predicament is the perfect cause to help resurrect their public images, they hit the road with Angie (Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman) and Trent (Andrew Rannells), another pair of cynical actors looking for a professional lift. But when their self-absorbed celebrity activism unexpectedly backfires, the foursome find their own lives upended as they rally to give Emma a night where she can truly celebrate who she is. 

Directed by Ryan Murphy and also starring Tracey Ullman, Kevin Chamberlin, Mary Kay Place, Logan Riley, Nico Greetham, Sofia Deler, and Nathaniel J. Potvin, The Prom is the spectacular, big-hearted film adaptation of Chad Beguelin, Bob Martin and Matthew Sklar’s award-winning, Tony-nominated Broadway musical. Screenplay by Bob Martin and Chad Beguelin; the film is produced by Ryan Murphy, Dori Berinstein, Bill Damaschke, Alexis Martin Woodall and Adam Anders. 

The Prom premieres December 11 on Netflix.

Seo Ye-ji and Son Ye-jin Top Metro.Style “Most Beautiful Korean Actresses” Poll

Lifestyle website Metro.Style launched a “Most Beautiful Korean Actresses” poll, which gathered over 2.8 million votes from fans and proclaimed “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” star Seo Ye-ji as the winner, followed by “Crash Landing on You's” Son Ye-jin. 

Bringing the #KFeverOnMetro campaign to the next level, Metro.Style initiated the poll to give tribute to these female Korean stars, who have kept many Filipinos company through binge-watching their K-dramas during the pandemic. 

The campaign was launched last August, and fans were asked to nominate the Korean actresses they find to be deserving to be called “most beautiful.” The nominees were Kim Ji-won (“Fight for My Way” and “Arthdal Chronicles”), Lee Ji-eun or IU (“Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo” and “Hotel del Luna”), Kim Hyun-joo (“What’s With This Family” and “I Have a Lover”), Park Min-young (“Healer” and “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim”), Song Ji-hyo (“Princess Hours” and “Emergency Couple”), Song Hye-kyo (“Full House” and “Descendants of the Sun”), Ku Hye-sun (“Boys Over Flowers” and “Angel Eyes”), Son Ye-jin (“Something in the Rain” and “Crash Landing on You”), Kim Go-eun (“Guardian: The Lonely and Great God” and “The King: Eternal Monarch”), and Seo Ye-ji (“Lawless Lawyer” and “It’s Okay to Not be Okay”) 

The next phase of the campaign invited fans to vote for the Top 10 nominees from September 11 to September 29 via an online poll system. After more than two weeks of voting, Seo Ye-ii emerged as the winner with 43.44% of the total number of votes, which is equivalent to 1,249,630 votes. Closely following her was Son Ye-jin with 36.52% or 1,050,440 votes. 

Completing the final ranking are Kim Go-eun with 7.87% (226,528), Song Ji-hyo with 4.80% (137,962), Kim Hyun-joo with 3.66% (105,304), Song Hye-kyo with 1.06% (30,400), Ku Hye-sun with 0.92% (26,492), Park Min-young with 0.60% (17,356), Kim Ji-won with 0.59% (17,030), and Lee Ji-eun (IU) with 0.54% (15,596). 

Metro.Style also paid tribute to the top three finishers Seo Ye-ji, Son Ye-jin, and Kim Go-eun, as well as announced five special awards: Most Ageless for Song Hye-kyo, Best Hair for Lee Ji-eun (IU), Best Skin for Kim Go-eun, Scene Stealer for Seo Ye-ji, and Most Radiant, presented by Smart, for Son Ye-jin. 

The lifestyle website has been riding the Korean wave since this phenomenon experienced a new surge in popularity in recent months. It has become a go-to source for K-drama and K-pop content, and even scored exclusive features with K-pop girl group Momoland and “Crash Landing on You” superstar Hyun Bin.

Jamie Rivera is igniting the Filipino Christmas cheer amid difficult times through a reimagined version of her song “Disyembre Na Naman” now aptly titled “Ber Months Na Naman,” set to be released this Friday (October 9). 

It’s the ‘Ber’ season again, time to prepare for the much-awaited celebration of the year, Christmas,” the Inspirational Diva teased. 

The cheerful song, which details many of the beloved Filipino Christmas traditions like hanging a lantern, gift-giving, Noche Buena feast, and night mass, is a perfect kick starter for the onset of the Yuletide season which starts during the ‘Ber’ months in the Philippines. 

Although the celebration will be arguably different this 2020 compared to the previous years, Jamie hopes that the song still sets Filipinos’ sights on what is really important during the Christmas season. 

Let us be reminded that the gift of love will always be the same and even in the new normal, the joy of giving will stay and will remain,” she explained. 

“Ber Months Na Naman” was written and produced by Jamie, while its music was composed and arranged by Denis Quila.

Trailer: “BLACKPINK Light Up The Sky” Documentary, Premieres October 14 on Netflix

Since their debut in August 2016, BLACKPINK has become the highest-charting female K-pop group of all time with their innovative music, eye-popping music videos and internet-breaking fashion concepts. BLACKPINK: LIGHT UP THE SKY serves up the never-before-seen moments that BLACKPINK's global fandom - known as "BLINKs" - have been craving for years. 

Directed by Caroline Suh (Netflix's "Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat"), the documentary goes deep with each of BLACKPINK's four members: Jisoo, the whip-smart unnie ("big sister") of the group with a quirky sense of humor; Jennie, the rapper whose fierce onstage persona contrasts with her soft-spoken nature; Rosé, the dulcet-voiced Australian coming into her own as a singer-songwriter; and Lisa, the dancing queen whose spark plug personality never fails to make her bandmates laugh. 

As BLACKPINK continues reaching new heights in their career - from headlining sold-out world tours to becoming the first female Korean group to perform at Coachella - each member reflects on the ups and downs of fame and the long, often challenging journey that brought them to worldwide success. BLACKPINK: LIGHT UP THE SKY reveals the relatable, unfiltered sides of the foursome, who continue to be a leading force in expanding K-pop's popularity, proving that music knows no borders or language barriers. 

"Blackpink: Light Up the Sky" premieres October 14 on Netflix.

Trending: “Prutas Pilipinas,” a Filipino Folk Song that Reminds to Eat Fruits and Stay Healthy

If you love classics "Bahay Kubo" and "Da Coconut Nut", then you are likely to enjoy a new song that has been recently creating buzz, called "Prutas Pilipinas." Music by National Artist Ryan Cayabyab, lyrics by Noel Ferrer and performed by The Company, the song was created in collaboration with local juice brand, Locally, and aims to educate and celebrate one of the best things we as Filipinos can be proud of – our fruits. 

In line with Locally's mission of honoring our Filipino farmers and their crops, this collaboration with top Filipino music artists entitled "Prutas Pilipinas" is a contemporary Filipino folk song featuring rhymes and riddles about homegrown fruits, both known and unknown.

We are extremely proud of this unique collaboration between icons. Ryan Cayabyab is a national artist, Noel Ferrer is a well-known and respected lyricist with a deep knowledge of Filipino culture, The Company, is an amazing group of talented Filipino singers, and Maribel Garcia is a passionate advocate of the arts being the head of BGC’s art program as well as Mind Museum,” says Gretchen King, Locally Category Manager. “Filipinos are of course known to love music, so we wanted to reach out to them through this medium.”

Nature, music, and science come together in our song “Prutas Pilipinas”. What better way to celebrate life than to sing a song about our fruits that give us life!” says Ryan Cayabyab

A way to spread more knowledge about something we all eat every day, “Prutas Pilipinas” not only names popular fruits, like mangoes, melons, and grapes but also more unique ones like chico, mangosteen, and dragonfruit. The song also mentions how nutritious and good these local fruits are, Locally’s way of championing what is proudly our own.

I thought that it would be a good opportunity to start from basic fruits and expand it to a collective push for a healthy nation - para sa masigla, magaling at masayang Pilipinas. The genius of our National Artist Mr. Cayabyab, as shown in the excellent music, and the exceptional vocal quality and harmony of The Company made the song truly fun, dynamic, and meaningful,” shares Noel Ferrer.

We feel that it is our mission to not only introduce these Philippine fruits through our juices but also to imbibe the knowledge and culture in every Filipino, especially today’s youth,” King continues.

“Prutas Pilipinas is that rare moment in OPM where we get to tick all of the right boxes. This contemporary folk song is entertaining, educational and edifying.

Transcending merely sensory enjoyment, this song becomes a pro-active participant in nation-building,” says The Company founding member, Moy Ortiz.

The song has three versions – the first is the main song which has already been released and is quickly growing in popularity on Spotify. Set to be released soon, the second version integrates a little bit of “bugtungan” at the song’s beginning, while the third version is short and easy to memorize, made to be shared in schools nationwide through DepEd.
This song is just the beginning,” says King. “We have exciting plans in collaboration with DepEd to integrate learning about Filipino fruits in the curriculum. We strongly believe that loving local and supporting our own is a culture that can be taught and encouraged at a young age. Our country produces some of the best and most amazing fruits in the world, and it’s time for all of us to know about and be proud of them,” concludes King.

“Prutas Pilipinas” is available for streaming on Spotify at this link: https://rb.gy/yp1nc5, and soon, on YouTube. Locally juices are available in all leading convenience stores and supermarkets. For more information, you may visit @Locally_PH on Instagram and Facebook.
