Funny personalities Luis Manzano and Alex Gonzaga were a hit as they channeled characters Dao Ming Si and Shan Cai, respectively, in a spoof they did of Taiwanese classic Meteor Garden for an endorsement project recently.
“Very, very soon, makikilala niyo na si Dao Ming Lu and San-CaiThy,” captioned the ‘World of Dance Philippines’ host to a series of photos he shared on Instagram this Thursday.
Based on the pictures, it was apparent that the two have recreated a particular scene from the show – when Shan Cai was chasing after the bus containing the amnesiac Dao Ming Si while hugging a grocery bag full of oranges. To date, the said scene remains as one of the most iconic performances in the history of Asian romantic drama.
After its release in Taiwan in 2001, ABS-CBN acquired the rights to Meteor Garden as the first Filipino channel to air the show in 2003, followed by a re-run in 2014. Its Chinese remake, titled after its original version, also became part of the giant network’s afternoon block Kapamilya Gold in 2018.
