  what’s not to like!?!

I. TRIVIA

  • i heard that brasca, angel’s wolf alternate, was bought for a cold US$25,000. 

img_0157.jpg

  • i read that this project was first offered to robin padilla opposite bea alonzo (and some article said it was kristine hermosa), but robin moved to gma-7.  and then john lloyd was supposed to do it opposite anne curtis. but since maging sino ka man book 2 was pushing through and angel moved to abs-cbn, piolo and angel got the project.
  • ultimately though, i  think this fits piolo better than the other two. not that i am doubting robin’s acting abilities after having won best actor in la visa loca, but in my opinion, john lloyd and piolo are much better actors.
  • as for john lloyd, no doubt he can take on the role. but c’mon! he’s not buff enough to be believable as a soldier! it’s a pity that he got stuck with mskm book 2, which reduced him to continously “dream”! eli has been having nightmares about joaquin for so many weeks now and there is still no resolution.
  • as for the girls bea alonzo, kristine hermosa, anne curtis, i also have doubts they can take on an “action” role. but i will not be surprised if anne curtis rises above my expectations, which she did in mskm book 1. though we’ll never know now! maybe in  new “action” projects.

 

  • the idea came from Mark Bunda. But kudos to ricky lee for developing the story (who by the way is my aunt’s classmate in elementary and high school in daet camarines norte. i was told that ever since he was young, he really liked to read and write, and that back in high school, he already started earning money by writing for liwayway).

 

  • the original title is in spanish: la loba blanca (the white wolf), then changed to taong lobo, then lobo. i think the main lead is the loba anyway, lyka. but for all intents and purposes, they changed it to lobo because piolo pascual should be more “bida” (lead) as he has been loyal to abs-cbn all his career, as opposed to angel, who just transferred.
  • much like in mulawin, i think alwina (lawin scrambled, with an “a” added since she is a girl) is more bida than aguiluz. but because richard gutierrez is the bigger star, you know, they also made richard a “sugo”!
  • though i would have to agree with the decision to go with  lobo. it’s much more commercial, marketing-wise.

II. Comments

  • it’s a fresh sight to see piolo put on more pounds. he was crazy thin in walang kapalit! this time he’s physique is more or less the same as when he first starred in sa sandaling kailangan mo ako! he is so sexy especially when he took off his shirt after anton hit his motorcycle!

  • portraying noah seems more challenging than all the roles he had before. i see his acting has improved a lot! i used to think that john lloyd was a better actor than he is. but after watching him play noah and john lloyd’s eli character in mskm book2 going nowhere, i could only reconsider.
  • nakakakilig panoorin ang hindi niya pangdedeadma niya kay lyka noong simula, kahit obvious naman sa kanya na may gusto si lyka sa kanya!

  • it’s also refreshing to see angel take on a different role. alwina, narda, and gabriela are all so serious! lyka is fun, carefree and flirty (a trait rarely seen in a lead role)! tawang-tawa ako pag hinahabol-habol at kinikilig siya kay noah!
  • i think her acting in transforming to brasca would be very good! we’ve seen half of it during the party ey!!!

  •  i also think it was good that the story started from the grandparents (lorenzo, diether ocampo), and not from the parents (nessa, agot isidro). it adds more history and depth to the story.
  • lobo’s casting is excellent! everybody can act! (as compared to mskm book 2, which has a lot of big stars that the writers tend to focus less on the story and give more air time to all big stars that it is already losing its brilliance! sabi nga ng tatay ko, eh puro guwapo at maganda nalang ang nandiyan, wala ng pangit!)  i mean, even the doctor who treated lyka when the light hit her can act. even manolo’s man who ticks on the luna group can act as well! so does the photographer. this is very rare because for bit characters, usually, the actors are so stiff!

img_0033.jpgimg_0093.jpgimg_0220.jpg

  • pilar pilapil is marvelous! the role lady elle fits her to a tee!
  • irma adlawan, ryan eignenmann, dimples romana, gio alvarez, the one who plays nuryal, the members of the waya council, and the whole cast…galing!
  • i think the only miscast is shaina magdayao! kahit anong gawin…bata pa talga siya. she is not like bea alonzo who looks mature! (i think bea was only 15 when she took on the role of kathrina in kay tagal kang hinintay, which made her a household name.)

 

  •  the story’s pacing is just right. it keeps you anticipating without being boring!
  • the first few scenes of lyka chasing noah is really funny! and when noah starts to notice lyka…kakakilig.

lobo2

  • i am also looking forward to the pagtutunggali of the waya and the luna clan. this remains to be unseen!

 

  • this is actually beside the point but it’s a nice trivia. piolo starred opposite regine velasquez in a maalaala mo kaya episode also entitled…lobo (balloon). lobo in filipino can mean wolf or balloon.
