Rodjun Cruz Talks About Reasons Why He Remain a Loyal Kapuso Star

Multitalented actor, performer, businessman, and a loving husband and dad Rodjun Cruz is filled with gratitude as he renewed his contract with GMA Artist Center on Thursday, November 4.

Being part of the GMAAC family for 8 years, Rodjun shares the reason why he stays loyal to his home network, "I'm very thankful and grateful to GMA for the opportunity and for always putting their trust in me. Nandito pa rin ako kasi mas lalo ko na-showcase yung talents ko and mas madami akong natutunan sa kanila. Kasi sila yung nagbibigay sa akin ng iba't-ibang roles na dito ko lang din ginawa sa GMA. Mas lumalakas yung loob ko, mas nahahasa ako as an actor, at the same time, nakakapag-perform ako kasi love ko rin talaga ang mag-perform."

As he celebrates the renewal of his contract, Rodjun looks back at all his proud Kapuso moments.

"Nung nagstart ako sa Kapuso Network, first time ko magtrending ng ganoon sa My Husband's Lover. Noong nag-guest ako doon, grabe ang daming nag-message [sakin]. Pinag-usapan talaga siya. 'Yun yung una dahil first time ko talaga ma-experience 'yun sa buhay ko kahit saan magpunta pinag-uusapan talaga. Tapos, dream ko rin kasi magkaroon ng action na palabas so first time ko rin naranasan 'yun na may power pa, noong ginawa ko yung role as Paopao sa Encantadia. And siyempre, yung Legally Blind. Nakaka-proud din yung moments na magkasama kami ni Rayver sa isang stage at nagpe-perform."

Aside from his guestings in the weekend variety show All-Out Sundays, Rodjun is gearing up for his lead role in the upcoming GMA series "Little Princess" with Jo Berry and Juancho Trivino. He considers this project a birthday gift from God.

"Hindi ma-contain yung happiness ko. Very grateful ako kasi pinag-pray ko yan kay Lord. Sabi ko, 'Lord, sana po bigyan Niyo pa po ako ng pagkakataon, bigyan Niyo po ako ng show na magagawa ko po yung gusto ko, na mapapakita ko po yung talento ko at makaka-inspire ako ng madaming tao.' So noong tinawag nila sa akin 'yung [Little Princess], sabi ko 'Wow, grabe ka Lord, answered prayer na naman to! Naniniwala din kasi ako na birthday gift sa akin 'to ni Lord kasi nag-birthday ako noong October," he said.

Aside from being a devoted husband to wife Dianne Medina and their 1-year-old son Rodolfo Joaquin Diego III, Rodjun still finds time to took his fitness advocacy to the next level and launched his very own sports apparel - Cruzfit.

Joshua Paolo Jensen Who Claims to Be Richard Yap's Illegitimate Son, Surfaced!

A certain Joshua Paolo Jensen, 24 from Bacoor, Cavite surfaced and claimed he is the "illegitimate son" of 54 year-old Kapuso actor and Cebu Congressional canditate Richard Yap from his mother Cherymae Valdez of Quezon City.

Last October 28, Jensen filed a petition for "compulsory recognition of natural child" o "acknowledgment of paternity and affiliation" in Cebu Regional Trial Court.

Joshua: "Matagal ko na siyang hinahanap. Nag-contact ako through Facebook, social accounts, sa wife niya, sa anak niya. "Wala po. Blinock lang nila ako."

Richard: "I've been in show business for ten years and I still have a child. As you can see that person is not from Cebu, He doesn't know how to speak Bisaya. Why is he filing in Cebu? Who is behind that? I have never seen him, met him, talk to him ever since. Just wondering where he took me to be his father."

ABS-CBN Evolves into a Global Content Company to Reach More Viewers Worldwide

ABS-CBN is reaching more audiences worldwide as it evolves into a global content creator for different digital platforms like iWantTFC, KTX, YouTube, Kumu, WeTV iFlix, Netflix, and Spotify.

We recognize the need to innovate and create memorable experiences to keep our Kapamilyas coming back for more,” said ABS-CBN head of digital Jamie Lopez at the IMMAP Digicon Pop recently.

Olivia Lamasan, ABS-CBN Film Productions Inc. managing director, revealed that ABS-CBN had to find ways to reconnect with its audiences even without a broadcast franchise, and this included forging partnerships and collaborating with various groups.

Without theatrical, without our own broadcast platform, we have evolved into being primarily a content company, providing content even to outside platforms, productions, and partners,” she said.

Asian streaming platform iQiyi has announced that ABS-CBN will produce two original series namely “Hello Heart” starring Gerald Anderson and Gigi De Lana, and “Saying Goodbye” that will be headlined by Seth Fedelin and Andrea Brillantes.

ABS-CBN also continues to strengthen its ties with Pinoy livestreaming and community platform Kumu, wherein it has channels like FYE, MYX Global, and SeenZone, while more than 100 of its Kapamilya artists have their own livestreaming channels as well. “Pinoy Big Brother” has also started its second season in partnership with Kumu, called “PBB Kumunity Season 10,” wherein its online auditions, 24/7 livestreaming, and online shows are all done on Kumu.

Even if cinemas were closed for more than a year due to the pandemic, ABS-CBN Films also produced a string of hit content like “The House Arrest of Us,” “Hello Stranger,” and “He’s Into Her,” the National Winner for Best Original Programme by a Streamer/OTT at the Asian Academy Creative Awards. Later this year, movie fans can also look forward to the latest co-production with Kumu, "Love at First Stream," a movie that will be helmed by Cathy Garcia-Molina.

Primetime Bida teleseryes are also now available for streaming before they air on TV on WeTV iFlix aside from iWantTFC, where users can stream ABS-CBN’s wide library of content for free. Filipinos also continue to watch ABS-CBN content via Kapamilya Online Live, which gets millions of views daily on the ABS-CBN Entertainment Facebook page that has 31.5 million followers, and via ABS-CBN Entertainment’s YouTube channel that now has 36.6 million subscribers, making it the most subscribed channel in Southeast Asia.

There’s also “Kapamilya YOUniverse” where ABS-CBN’s YouTube channels come together to showcase exciting content made for the platform.

Even ABS-CBN News continues to gain a stronger digital presence. On Facebook, it has recorded 22.7 million followers, while on YouTube it already has 13 million subscribers. It also produces video stories under its NXT brand, as well as podcasts on Spotify like “ABS-CBN News Flash,” “After The Fact,” and “Post-Game.” Recently, ABS-CBN News has also joined TikTok.

As a digital news organization, we continue to be a work in progress but we are grateful and gratified by how we have been accepted by the audience on digital platforms,Lynda Jumilla, ABS-CBN News Digital head, said.

Lauren Dyogi, ABS-CBN entertainment production head, also explained how a 68-year-old company like ABS-CBN was able to pivot in the middle of the pandemic and a shutdown.

With both crises, we were really forced to react immediately because we didn’t want to go off-air. We wanted to be available and accessible to a lot of our audience so we just needed to employ available platforms and technology so we can still provide our entertainment programs,” he said.

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ “Dune,” from visionary filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, crosses the $300 million mark at the global box office today, with Monday’s numbers in North America topping more than $71 million and more than $228 million from overseas, and counting.

A succession of impressive #1 openings, coupled with strong word of mouth, had anticipation for the film increasing exponentially as the film rolled out around the globe. The epic action adventure, based on the seminal Frank Herbert novel, kicked off the fall season to great fanfare at the Venice and Toronto film festivals before beginning its theatrical play mid-September.

Jeff Goldstein, President, Warner Bros. Pictures Domestic Distribution, said, “We are so thrilled that this one-of-a-kind cinematic experience has movie lovers, as well as lifelong fans of the book like Denis Villeneuve himself, eager to see ‘Dune’ as he envisioned it: on the biggest possible screen. These terrific numbers, coupled with A- CinemaScore and a Certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, show the film delivers and that audiences are going back for multiple viewings.”

Andrew Cripps, President, Warner Bros. Pictures International Distribution, stated, “From our first international opening in September, we could see that ‘Dune’ was both a critical and crowd pleaser. The numbers have continued to bear that out as each market has opened and we look forward to a healthy theatrical play, with Australia and New Zealand yet to come as we head into the holidays.

About “Dune”

Oscar nominee Denis Villeneuve (“Arrival,” “Blade Runner 2049”) directs Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ “Dune,” the big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal bestseller of the same name.

A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, “Dune” tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence - a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.

The film stars Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Oscar nominee Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, David Dastmalchian, Chang Chen, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, with Oscar nominee Charlotte Rampling, with Jason Momoa, and Oscar winner Javier Bardem.

LG Styler: The New and Complete Way to Keep Clothes Fresh, Clean, and Damage-Free

Coming into the second year of the pandemic, cleanliness and safety is still the number one priority for families. Even as vaccinations are slowly rolled out, nothing beats preparedness in keeping sickness at bay. Worldwide innovators, such as LG, have been hard at work to provide tools to help in the new normal. Its newest product, the LG Styler, is designed to keep clothes fresh and clean without needing to launder it excessively.

In a recent online event, LG introduced the Styler to the local market. Hosted by LG Brand Ambassador Stephanie Zubiri, the event showcased the different uses the LG Styler has for individuals from all walks of life. LG envisions the Styler as the future of wardrobe management, especially with the Philippines’ unpredictable weather. Normal clothes are easy to wash, but some, such as outerwear like jackets, or dresses with fragile fabric, are a different story. This is where the LG Styler comes in.

With the Styler, all you need to do is put your clothes inside and it’s good as new in minutes - no fuss and definitely, no damage. You can also do this to shake off wrinkles and odors. You can take care of suits, dresses, sweaters and more with the touch of a button, so you and your clothes will always look at your best. Shake off odors, leaving your clothes fresh and clean. You don’t have to worry about special fabrics. The LG Styler prevents shrinkage and damage courtesy of its Heat-Pump Technology. Gently dry clothes that require special care without worrying about shrinkage or damage. No more dampness or accidental damage - only fresh, clean clothes as they were meant to be.

During the event, event host Stephanie, who’s a mom and a journalist, shared how she loves using Styler to sanitize her kid’s stuffed animal toys. She interviewed Victor Basa and Dra. Vicki Belo who both shared their unique perspective on how the Styler helps them at home and at work. Victor, actor and fashion blogger, appreciates great clothing and the transformative power they possess. “I have these prized menswear pieces that really make you feel good wearing, a custom suit, Italian bespoke trousers, heirloom barong, and they all deserve the proper care and longevity. The LG Styler is definitely a game changer. I often have to bring out my seldom used clothes like my barong out of the closet for my hosting gigs and so I don't need to get out for dry cleaning! It’s like having your own valet or gentleman’s gentleman at home, specifically responsible for my clothes. It also looks great in my interior because of the reflective mirror finish and sleek design.”

While Dra. Vicki Belo, founder and medical director of Belo Medical Group, the pioneer and number one medical aesthetic clinic in the country, was elated with her new home dream machine and all it’s amazing features. “I’m obsessed! Thanks to LG Philippines for bringing it here. I saw it in Milan around 3 years ago. The first thing I loved about it is the ease of use! I’m not that techie so this one I can easily operate after unboxing. I also like the fact that you can practically use it every day. We wear PPEs as doctors in Belo clinics so as soon as I remove it, pasok agad in the Styler. It feels as if I have a whole new wardrobe in my walk-in closet because I have a lot of delicate items that I wouldn’t wear as often, like the couture dresses, so now I can freshen them all up. Also, lahat na we wanna put inside the LG Styler, and not just the clothing, even the stuffed toys of Scarlett.” The one-of-a-kind appliance can effectively prolong the life of not only clothes but a whole variety of household items.

At the core of Styler is the patented LG TrueSteam™ technology, which eliminates over 99.9 percent of the germs and bacteria found in clothing and toys and is approved as asthma and allergy friendly® by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). Clothes placed on the moving hangers shake out wrinkles and unpleasant odors while the Gentle Dry cycle removes moisture quickly and thoroughly. Heat Pump Drying reduces energy consumption by recycling heat from the hot, moist air inside Styler, and Pants Crease Care creates a crisp crease-line without an iron.

In addition, style icon and fashion+travel blogger Laureen Uy with 1M followers on Instagram posted about how amazing is her new LG Styler. Representing a new way to care for her designer clothes and other accessories, the Styler boasts many practical uses and thoughtful features including a mirror-like finish that fits her snazzy space and chic personality.

Aside from being functional, it’s sleek, stylish, and blends well with any interior. Whether you’re living by yourself or with a family, the LG Styler is a key piece in anyone’s wardrobe. With it, you can refresh clothes in the comfort of your home. From unpleasant smells, harmful pollutants, dripping wet, wrinkles, seasonal clothes and even difficult to clean items - effortlessly remove them quickly and effectively at your home.

LG also remains committed in providing smart solutions for its appliances. The Styler can be controlled using your smartphone. ThinQ™ app lets you operate or monitor precious garments from anywhere, anytime. You can use Cycle Download to add newly developed care cycles.

Knowing the need to efficiently eliminate harmful bacteria and viruses in the community, LG recently donated Styler and Wearable Air Purifiers and more than 2000 hygiene kits to the local government of Pasig City through Mayor Vico Sotto. LG has always been a long and ardent supporter of the LGU where the LGEPH headquarters is located. Over the past months, during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, LG also donated washing machines, refrigerators and digital signage displays to help out city frontliners and its constituents.

Seungjae Kim, LG Philippines’ Managing Director, shares his piece on how the LG Styler can benefit Filipino families and the community. “The LG Styler provides a fast and easy way of disinfecting your clothes, which is crucial in the time of COVID. It helps keep you and your family safe. It is also a perfect addition to any household, whether you’re living alone or with a family. We also believe that the CSR initiatives we have done, including the recent Styler donation will make a difference in helping out Pasig City’s civil servants.”
