KarJon Reunites in ABS-CBN’s Newest Halloween Offering ‘Hex Boyfriend’

Karina Bautista and Aljon Mendoza reunite and spread an eerie kind of kilig in the latest Made For YouTube offering of ABS-CBN this Halloween season, “Hex Boyfriend.”

Aljon said, “After last projects namin, I feel na mas equipped kami at mas mayroon kaming tools para mapaganda ung series. Kabisado na namin yung isa’t isa.”

“Nandun kasi yung friendship kaya hindi kami nahirapan. Naging smooth flowing din kasi pareho kaming excited at game kami to work together again in this project na parehas bago sa amin,” Karina added.

Karina also emphasized how “Hex Boyfriend” touches on Filipino culture and folklore of witches and faith healers.

“Ito yung mga kwentong naririnig ko sa mga kapitbahay, lolo, at lola ko. Grabe ito yung kwentong Pilipino. Dito lang sa Pilipinas uso yung kwento sa mangkukulam at albularyo. Dito mabibigyan kulay yung culture natin. Mahilig kasi tayong maniwala sa mga ganyan,” she shared.

In “Hex Boyfriend,” Karina plays Raya, a straightforward Gen Z goth who hails from a clan of witches and struggles to find acceptance in her community because of her family’s reputation. As she tries to live peacefully, she meets Chris (Aljon), who comes from a family of albularyos. Can love blossom between them, considering they are from opposing clans?

Find out in “Hex Boyfriend,” which starts streaming today on ABS-CBN’s YouTube channel.
