Nagpasalamat si Teejay Marquez sa mga tumangkilik ng BL series nila ni Jerome Ponce na Ben X Jim na nagkaroon ng finale episode nitong Huwebes, November 26.
Ang Ben X Jim ay sa direksyon ni Easy Ferrer and produced ng Regal Entertainment at napapanood sa Regal Entertainment Youtube Channel at Regal Entertainment Facebook Page.
Ani Teejay, “Still in clouds right now because of your undying support up to our last episode of this season. Thank you everyone for being part of each characters journey in the series.
“From the fan arts, memes, appreciation posts, Twitter parties and comments in our posts you guys never missed to make us feel loved and appreciated.”
Nagpahiwatig din siya na hindi dapat malungkot ang tumututok sa Ben X Jim dahil magkakaroon ito ng season 2.
“When one door closes, Another opens. This is just the end of the 1st season and soon season 2 is about to unfold. We hope that you guys will still be there for us when that time comes,” lahad pa ng aktor.
Nagpasalamat din si Teejay sa director ng Ben X Jim na ayon sa kanya ay isang “legend.”
“Still can't believe how you guys supported us from the very beginning, It’s really overwhelming. Thank you guys for the millions of millions of views. You guys are the best.
“I just wanted to take this opportunity to give credits to the person behind the success of #BenxJim -- Direk Easy Ferrer. Thank you for trusting me to portray Ben and allowing me to explore more as an actor. I've learned a lot from you, you’re a LEGEND direk,” mensahe niya sa Ben X Jim director.
Naka more than 8 million (and still counting) views na ang Ben X Jim na nag-premiere noong October 15.
Tanong namin kay Direk Easy, sa palagay niya, bakit naging ganun ka-successful ang kanyang BL series?
“Sa tingin ko po dahil sa universality ng theme at relatability niya as characters and stories. Also maganda po kasi ang visuals, cinematic ang cinematography and PD, and actors magaling po. Storytelling wise maayos po ang flow,” tugon niya.
Samantala, ayon sa BLBoard Hot 2020, “Ben X Jim has even raised the bar high as the series broke its former record of having the most viewed premiere episode for any Philippine BL series after an hour of streaming on Youtube.
“The former record set by the series was at 73,836 views and was achieved just last week. The new record is now at a whopping 79,080 views. The series with the hashtag #BenXJim also peaked at the number one spot on Philippine Trending Topics an hour after its season finale premiere.”
Sa first quarter ng 2021 magsisimula ang season 2 ng Ben X Jim.
