Asia’s Box Office Superstar Kathryn Bernardo won a prestigious Outstanding Asian Star award in the Seoul International Drama Awards (SDA) 2023.
In her acceptance speech, she honored healthworkers and expressed her appreciation for ABS-CBN’s hit series “2 Good 2 Be True.”
“I fell in love with this project because of its unique storyline. It’s always been more than just sharing a love story to our audience, but also spreading awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and educating people about those who struggle with it, and how we can offer them the best support they need. This project made me appreciate our nurses and our healthcare workers so it was really more than just another TV show for me ,” the Kapamilya star said.
She played the character of Ali, a nurse who takes care of an elderly billionaire (Lolo Sir/Hugo Agcaoili played by Ronaldo Valdez) suffering from Alzheimer’s. During its successful run, the show was commended for educating viewers on how to properly do health procedures like CPR and the FAST method that can help save lives.
The “A Very Good Girl” star also shared her award with the entire “2 Good 2 Be True” team and thanked her loyal fans in the Philippines.
Kathryn also said she hopes that there will be “more world-class content produced not just for Filipinos, but for the whole world to see” as well.
“I am so proud and humbled to be on this stage representing Filipino talent and being a Filipino. This means so much to me. Thank you so much and from the bottom of my heart, maraming-maraming salamat po,” she added.
On the other hand, fans will get to see Kathryn again on the big screen in ABS-CBN Film Productions’ “A Very Good Girl” that is set to premiere in cinemas nationwide starting September 27.
