Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Season 2 Big Winner, Ejay Falcon finally leads his very own teleserye on ABS-CBN via the upcoming action-romance-drama, "Dugong Buhay". "Dugong Buhay" is based on the 1983 film by Carlo J. Caparas which starred Senator Bong Revilla, Jr. during his early days in showbiz. According to Carlo J. Caparas in an interview, he thought Ejay Falcon is the right person to play the role of Gabriel de Lara because of his physique, charisma, and natural perm which the character asks. The Gabriel de Lara character will seek for revenge for his mother and brother, and I think the "perm" will make the character even more mysterious and will have that always-ready-for-action feel look. Something different for an action-drama hero!
"Dugong Buhay" is NOT a Pinoy adaptation or a peg of the hit Korean drama, "City Hunter" starring Lee Min-Ho, although some plots may have been similar to the hit drama, I think the ABS-CBN management see to it that the story will not be similar or even close to the story of said Korean drama. It is based on the komiks made into film and directed by Carlo J. Caparas thirty years ago.
So far, this is Ejay Falcon's biggest break ever. Newbie actor, Arjo Atayde may also consider this as his biggest break after winning the Most Promising Actor award last year on his MMK performance. "Dugong Buhay" is said to replace the afternoon drama, "Paraiso" on Kapamilya Gold block. But I do hope this will be shown on the Primetime Bida block. It's not everyday that you watch an action-drama-teleserye on television, you know? "Dugong Buhay" is set to be shown on April 8, 2013, but plans to put it on the primetime block must push through. I hope Ejay Falcon's fans will put this drama on the primetime block! Below is the full trailer of "Dugong Buhay".
