Spotlight for ‘SethDrea’ grows bigger


Seth Fedelin and Andrea Brillantes, aka SethDrea, are so cute as a love team that you’d want to spread some candy sprinkles on them and put them in your pocket. 

But beyond their cute antics are two determined young ones who work hard for their dreams. The two are actually in a commitment beyond their relationship and included in their vows to each other is a promise that they would help each other and achieve their goals together.  They don’t see realizing their dreams with anyone but each other. And this goes beyond their screen partnership. Andrea once declared she doesn’t like Seth dating other women.

And it seems to be paying off.  Fresh from the success of their prime-time soap Huwag Kang Mangamba, the two will now be seen in Saying Goodbye, a YA (Young Adult) series.  Andrea plays Elise and Seth essays Ricky. They fatefully cross paths at an old record store fighting over the same album of their beloved artist. Their first meeting turns into an enduring friendship that will take them to an adventure as they try to fulfill the bucket list of Ricky’s, who has been dealing with heart disease since childhood. The series also features the newly formed loveteam of Andi Abaya and Kobi Brown from Pinoy Big Brother.

Saying Goodbye also marks the debut of the multi-content partnership between Global streaming service iQiyi (, leading provider of beloved pan-Asian content worldwide, and ABS-CBN. The network is set to produce four Filipino original romantic series for its international subscribers worldwide. 

The partnership fortifies the commitments of both companies in bringing high-quality, relatable and inspiring Philippine content with universal themes while championing Filipino talents and stories onto the global stage. Coupled with ABS-CBN’s creative capability in content production and with its seasoned pool of talents, the exclusive partnership enhances iQiyi’s extensive and growing library of Asian content from Japan, South Korea, Greater China, Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia available across 191 territories.   

“We are thrilled to partner with iQiyi for its first Filipino local original series as we continue to tell meaningful stories and champion Filipino talent. Through their technology and our expertise in content creation and production, we strive to bring excellent Filipino content to local and international audiences and subscribers of iQiyi,” says ABS-CBN chief operating officer of broadcast Cory Vidanes.

Another show to watch out for is Hello, Heart, which premieres on December 15 at 8 pm. Starring YouTube’s phenomenal star Gigi de Lana alongside Gerald Anderson, one of the busiest leading men around these parts, the romantic comedy follows Heart, a beautiful, perky and hardworking woman but is very unlucky in life. Her life starts to turn around upon meeting Saul, an emotionless, business-as-usual guy who hires her to pretend to be his wife to please his grandmother with dementia. Gigi performs the series’ official theme song, Roselle Nava’s “Bakit Nga Ba Mahal Kita,” which she covered in a video that went viral online.
