Enchong Dee remains in fighting form


After more than a dozen year in showbiz marked by successes, Enchong Dee remains in fighting form, still in tip-top shape as an artist to reckon with.

A few years ago in a private conversation, he remembered his salad days as a showbiz newcomer with fondness. Like the first time he guested in a morning talk show with his brother AJ. 

“Enjoy pala sya,” Enchong recalled. “At first I was hesitant to join showbiz but little by little, I learned that showbiz is something I can make a career of. I’ve never looked at my job as a stepping stone to something bigger. Rather, I consider it as a blessing. I’ve reached my goal. Being happy with myself, with my family, and with my life.”

And what a career he has. “I’ve never looked at my job as a stepping stone to something bigger. Rather, I consider it as a blessing,” he said. “It helps me reach my goal which is to be happy. Being happy with myself, with my family, and with my life.”

Enchong has starred in numerous TV shows, movies and has had the privilege of endorsing a number of brands.

He is now even into vlogging. But what keeps Enchong busy now, besides the final taping days of his prime-time soap Huwag Kang Mangamba, is his stint as the opening salvo of MMK’s 30th anniversary this November.

Enchong brings life to the story of Edwin Pranada, a renowned cosmetic tattooist who gives free service to people suffering from alopecia. Through Enchong, we will discover the story of Edwin who grows up finding value in his mother’s praise for his siblings every time they bring food and money to their family. At first, he tries to earn by collecting garbage. But then Edwin gets tired of waiting and resorts to tricking people and selling drugs. He will then see the light and opt for a better life by being a cosmetic tattooist. This episode of MMK which is directed by Jerome Pobocan, airs on November 6.

 Meanwhile, as part of the 30th anniversary celebration and due to popular demand, MMK will reair the first team-up of Coco Martin and Jodi Sta. Maria the following Saturday. The much talked-about episode sees Coco play Ramon, who does underground boxing for a living. But for his wife Mila (Jodi) and his son, he decides to change his job. However, as Ramon tries to find another job, he commits a crime that makes his family hate him.  Watch how he will realize his mistakes and be a better father and husband to his family.

And then on November 20, Anne Curtis returns to the longest airing drama anthology playing Marrz. Throughout her childhood, Marrz knows that she is not like her sisters. Because her father disapproves of her gender, Marrz goes to Hong Kong to find the freedom and independence she dreams of and help her family. Despite all the judgment from people, Marrz will inspire people to embrace themselves for who they are on November 20.

Viewers can also revisit the 2018 Asian Academy Creative Awards Best Single Drama/Telemovie episode starring Angel Locsin and Dimples Romana, titled Kotse-Kotsehan. Watch Samina’s (Angel) point of view on how she found Idai’s (Dimples) son, who is suspected to have been kidnapped, and how she will prove her innocence to regain her freedom on November 27.
