Aljur Abrenica and Kris Bernal, from ‘The Last Prince’ to ‘Coffee Prince’
September 20, 2012 by GMA-7
Aljur Abrenica and Kris Bernal are set to reunite on primetime TV via the Pinoy adaptation of the hit Koreanovela, “Coffee Prince.”
“Coffee Prince” was one of the Kapuso Network’s highest-rating Koreanovelas in 2008 which spawned a huge following and fascination among Filipinos.
After more than 4 years, GMA-7 is making a local version of the series starring one of the network’s most sought-after love teams, the pairing of Aljur Abrenica and Kris Bernal, also known as “AlKris,” the moniker given to them by their fans.
Both actors are ecstatic on their reunion project on the small screen after having the chance to appear in various programs which catapulted their loveteam into the forefront including Dyesebel, Luna Mystika, All My Life and Sine Novela presents Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin?. Their last team-up was in the 2010 fantaserye The Last Prince.
Kris feels very excited to get another opportunity to work with Aljur for this primetime soap. “Siguradong namiss ng viewers yung Alkris tandem sa GMA. Excited kaming dalawa for Coffee Prince dahil first romantic-comedy TV project namin ito in GMA.” She is also thrilled to play her character who pretends to be a guy. “Dapat abangan nila kung gaano kaguwapo si Kris Bernal ‘pag naging lalaki.”
Aljur, on the other hand, couldn’t be any happier to reignite his onscreen chemistry with Kris, “Yung pinagsamahan namin walang kapantay at kung ikukumpara sa iba, malaking bagay ‘yung Kris Bernal sa buhay ni Aljur. Ganu’n kalalim ang relasyon namin.”
Playing support to Aljur and Kris are Tessie Tomas, Leo Martinez, Ronnie Henares, Ces Quesada, Boy2 Quizon, Steven Silva, Fabio Ide, Sef Cadayona, Kim Komatsu, and Ms. Celia Rodriguez.
Introducing in this series are Max Collins and Benjamin Alves in their very first primetime project.
Directed by Ricky Davao, “Coffee Prince” airs soon on GMA-7.
