Aside from being one of the most popular teen love teams in showbiz this year, Andrea Brillantes and Seth Fedelin proved that they are also conscious about social issues during the recent mediacon for their first iQiyi Filipino series Saying Goodbye. The teen love team were asked to give their recap of the year that was and share what some of their hopes are for the coming year.

“Ang 2021 para sa akin was super overwhelming. Very stressful. Lahat naman tayo may kanya-kanyang pinagdaanan ng 2021 and it wasn’t a great year for a lot of people. Pero yung iba naman, it was yung best year for them. Iba iba naman talaga tayo. Pero personally for me ang daming nangyari, especially dahil ito yung year na nagkaroon ako ng COVID. Lalo na ngayon magtatapos na yung 2021 nangyari naman yung sa Siargao at yung mga nabiktima ng typhoon Odette.


“Pero masaya ako na nandito pa rin tayo lahat lumalaban at grateful pa din ako sa lahat ng blessings na natanggap ko ngayong taon at sobra akong nagpapasalamat kay Lord na binibigyan pa rin niya ako ng lakas. Kung i-di-describe ko ang 2021 ang masasabi ko I hate you but I love you? (laughs),” Andrea shared.

Despite the hardships of 2021, Seth said he would rather focus on its positive aspects.

“Ang 2021 ko kasi, although hindi naman naging perpekto ang taon na ‘to, pero mas naka-focus ako sa mga magagandang nangyari. Kahit hindi perpekto at meron pa rin pandemic, at least meron pa rin akong natatanggap galing sa itaas. Siguro masasabi ko na solid itong 2021 kasi ayoko mag-focus dun sa mga panget na nangyari sa akin. Mas pinapahalagahan ko yung mga natatanggap kong blessings, yung mga magagandang dumadating sa buhay ko.

“And then sa 2022 naman, ang gusto ko sana maging taon ko rin ang 2022. Sana maging maayos para sa ating lahat and yung COVID na yan, siguro andiyan na yan. Siguro mas magiging responsable lang ang mga tao, natuto na tayong lahat. Siguro ang 2020 at 2021 kinalabit lang tayo ni God. So 2022 magiging okay ang lahat at naniniwala ako dun na magiging maayos,” he said.

During the event, the teen stars were united in their message for next year’s national elections.

“Sa 2022 I hope mas maging better na ang lahat for all of us. At hindi naman ini-expect na mawala itong COVID kasi ayoko ng umasa. Pero sana pasimula na talaga ang 2022 ng pagbabalik ng dating normal, hindi yung new normal. Sana ang 2022 ang simula ng pagbabalik nung dati, kasi ang dami ko ng nami-miss eh. Miss na miss ko na yung fans ko, yung premiere night, tapos yung Christmas Special ginagawa sa Araneta Coliseum. Ang dami kong nami-miss. Kaya sana bumalik na yung mga dating events, yung ABS-CBN Ball, sportsfest, miss ko na. 2022 ayusin mo ‘to. Let’s manifest it. Sana sa 2022 magkaroon ng pagbabago at maging matalino ang mga Pilipino sa pagboto next year. Sana maging matalino tayong lahat at iboto natin ang taong tingin natin matutulungan tayong lahat ngayong pandemic,” Andrea explained.

Seth stressed his appeal for people not to accept bribes from candidates in exchange for their votes.

“Guys, huwag tayo tatanggap ng 500. Mapapalitan ng bilyon yan. Huwag natin sayangin yung limang daan na yun. Payamanin natin yung sarili nating morale. Huwag na natin payamanin yung kung sino man diyaan,” he added.
