Aljur and Kris are recently dubbed as the soap opera king and queen after their successful daytime drama “Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin?” hit an all-time high of 32.1 percent in Mega Manila tv ratings last April 30, a figure higher than what most of ABS-CBN’s primetime programs garnered on the same date.
And for the first time, GMA found a love team that they can pit into the highly successful “KIMERALD”, a monicker for Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson, of ABS-CBN.
The future is indeed shining brightly for the two Starstruck alums as they are both doing well in various celebrity lists (In Starmometer alone, Aljur ranks no. 1 Sexiest Man in the Philippines for 2009), a number of endorsements in the offing, a launching movie with working title “Nandito Ako” topbilled by them and a primetime series is being prepared by their mother studio with the both of them in the lead!
Even the articles about Aljur and Kris here in Starmometer received more than 10,000 hits and hundreds of comments. The article “Aljur Abrenica and Kris Bernal Hit the Silverscreen with ‘Nandito Ako'” got 11,108 unique page views and 223 comments; The article “Aljur Abrenica & Kris Bernal Topbills ‘Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin?’” received a whopping 18,952 unique page views and 168 comments.
And as they say, when a star is gaining popularity, negative publicities are not far behind. This is so true with Aljur Abrenica as he is being accused for “act of lasciviousness” by a teenage girl.
Aljur’s better half, Kris Bernal, is quick to support her partner. Kris said on the Chika Minute segment of 24 Oras last Thursday that she truly believes Aljur is innocent.
“Siyempre ako para sa kanya nandito lang ako…basta magkwento, magsabi lang siya alam ko ‘yon ang totoo,” she said.
