The talented actor, JM De Guzman, is continuously making his comeback as one of the most significant highlights in the entertainment scene this 2018. His TV comeback via the drama series, Araw Gabi, is consistently on top of the ratings game in the afternoon slot, and is also the consistent number one based on views in ABS-CBN's online portal, iWant TV. This just proves how Filipino fans miss and love this acting gem.
Prior to JM's second hiatus in showbiz, JM has also starred in one of the most memorable Pinoy movies of all time opposite Angelica Panganiban in That Thing Called Tadhana. We can't deny the impact that Tadhana made, which actually started the famous 'hugot' trend in the recent Pinoy romance films. In fact, it was so successful that the fictional book written and illustrated by Mace and Anthony (Angelica and JM's characters in the movie, respectively) was launched as a real book and has become a bestseller! The film even promoted Sagada, Mountain Province as one of the most visited non-beach tourist spots in the country and has become a famous go-to place for the romantics, especially the brokenhearted ones. Awwww.
Aside from Tadhana, JM has also made a remarkable performance in Tandem, a movie with Nico Antonio about tandem robbers on motorbike. JM won Best Actor trophies for both movies, That Thing Called Tadhana and Tandem.
In the recent years, with the help of the brave independent film producers, the Filipino moviegoers have become open to unusual love stories with surprising, unpredictable, and sometimes open endings. This year, JM returns to the big screen with a movie with yet another intriguing plot. Paired with equally-reliable Kapuso actress, Rhian Ramos, JM is about to prove his blockbuster charm once more in his latest movie, Kung Paano Siya Nawala.
Like JM, Rhian is also one of the boldest actresses when it comes to portraying roles. She is open to exploring different genres and has also starred in interesting films such as Saving Sally and Silong, which both gave her Best Actress nominations from different award-giving bodies.
Written and directed by Joel Ruiz, JM and Rhian will test their onscreen chemistry in an unorthodox love story in Kung Paano Siya Nawala. This is the first time JM and Rhian work together, not just as actors, but as co-executive producers of the film as well.
In the movie, Rhian's character, Shana meets Lio (played by JM), a man with face blindness or someone who could not recognize and remember faces. The condition poses a challenge as the two try to build a relationship.From the same team that brought to us epic films Heneral Luna and its most-anticipated sequel, Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral, this is another quality Filipino film every movie lover should not miss. Kung Paano Siya Nawala is scheduled to hit the cinemas this year.
