Even before the entire country sees the highly-anticipated local adaptation of hit Korean series ‘Descendants of the Sun (DOTS)’, GMA Network, through GMA Regional TV, is giving Kapusong Cebuanos an exceptional treat this weekend by bringing to Cebu no less than the Philippines’ Big Boss and Beauty—Kapuso Primetime King Dingdong Dantes and Ultimate Star Jennylyn Mercado, respectively, together with Rocco Nacino—as part of the celebration of the Sinulog Festival.

Completing the Kapuso line-up on Friday and sure to give their fans a kilig-filled afternoon are Kyline Alcantara and Yasser Marta of the TV adaptation of the 1989 award-wining blockbuster movie, ‘Bilangin ang Bituin sa Langit’.

Julie Anne, Barbie, Kate, Migo, Kyline, and Yasser are set to extend the celebration to another Kapuso Mall Show later that evening—this time around in The Terraces, Ayala Center Cebu at 6 p.m.

On Saturday (January 18), Cebu gets first glimpse of the powerhouse cast of the Philippines’ Descendants of the Sun (DOTS) with no less than Big Boss (Dingdong), Beauty (Jennylyn), and Wolf (Rocco) meeting their Kapuso fans.

Reporting for duty as well that day are DOTS cast members Lucho Ayala, Jon Lucas, Paul Salas, Prince Clemente, Andre Paras, Hailey Mendes, and Chariz Solomon.

The DOTS team gives Kapusong Cebuanos back-to-back events to look forward to: a Kapuso Mall Show at Gaisano Island Mall in Mactan at 4 p.m. and a Kapuso Fiesta at Robinsons Galleria Cebu at 6 p.m.

The following day (January 19), Dingdong, Jennylyn, Rocco, and the rest of the DOTS cast set the Sinulog Grand Parade ablaze as they board the Kapuso Float and tour the major streets of Cebu City.

Meanwhile, TV viewers will get a VIP seat view of the Sinulog Festival Grand Parade starting at 8:00 a.m. The “Pit Senyor: The Balitang Bisdak Special Live Coverage” will be hosted by the anchors of GMA Regional TV’s top-rating and award-winning local newscast in Central and Eastern Visayas, Bobby Nalzaro, Alan Domingo, and Cecile Quibod-Castro, together with Balitang Bisdak correspondents Lou Ann Mae Rondina, and Nikko Sereno.
