Reuniting with former Rak of Aegis co-star Kim Molina in an upcoming episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya, Pepe Herrera said he was happy to be part of the story of a couple whose love has proven to be unconditional

Dito makikita niyo I guess the more sensitive and the more vulnerable Kim and Pepe. Ang natutunan ko sa episode namin ni Kim na 14 Years of Love ay love is unconditional. Walang conditions. Always loving, always kind, always forgiving, always open, always embracing, always accepting,” he shared during the MMK virtual presscon.

During their three-day lock-in shoot, the former FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano actor admitted he enjoyed their time on the set despite the ongoing pandemic.

Naging therapeutic din yung episode namin. It was a very good release kasi kami ni Kim ang kinaganda sa amin magkaibigan kasi kami ni Kim way back sa theater dahil sa Rak of Aegis. So this was a good reconnection for us tapos yung pag reconnect namin yung pagkuwentuhan namin about life in general nakatulong sa amin para maging mas vulnerable,” he recalled.

Pepe also shared what he has learned from the life story he and Kim will portray onscreen in MMK. “Laughter is the best medicine. Laughter is the best weapon kasi pag napapatawa mo yung isang tao, napakalaking bagay na yun. Ang laking pagliwanag nabibigay mo sa isang tao, nililigawan mo man o isang kaibigan,” he said.
