After starting off the year coming out with consecutive action thriller projects Siklo and Hugas, Vivamax director Roman Perez Jr. said he is not trying to have his new film outshine his previous one when it comes to sexy scenes and action stunts.

For Hugas, the veteran director talked about how proud he is of lead stars AJ Raval and Sean de Guzman.

“Yung Hugas kasi makikita natin si AJ at Sean de Guzman hindi lang yung pagiging sexy kasi naikot na natin yung pagiging character nila at pagiging artista nila. Makikita natin dito yung range ni AJ Raval sa drama at sa action scenes. Ganun din si Sean. Yung action range ni Sean hihigitan na niya kasi talagang plinano namin ito. Aabangan niyo dito kung paano nilang dalawan na-develop yung isa’t isa at kung paano na-develop bilang artist.


“Sabi ko nga, pang-festival itong Hugas. Ang galing ni AJ sa drama, intonation, timing. Kung kakalimutan natin yung sexy, yun ang lamang nitong Hugas. Kakalimutan itong sexy part ng Hugas, tatayo yung buong story ng walang sexy. Pero natutulungan nitong kuwento nito na higitan pa yung Siklo. Kasi iba rin yung twist nito. Mas ma-sha-shock ka sa twist nito,” he explained.

With the rising popularity of leading men Sean de Guzman and Vince Rillon on Vivamax’s streaming service, direk Roman shared how he differentiates the two new actors.

“Pangarap ko nga na magsama yung dalawang yan kasi very raw si Vince. Kung comparison very raw si Vince. Found actor si Vince kasi galing yan kay Dante Mendoza. Kung paano siya mag-dialogue, kung paano siya umiyak. Very raw. Si Sean medyo finesse siya. Learned kasi siya. Iba na si AJ at si Sean ngayon. Aral na. Pero hindi naman masasabi na hindi aral si Vince kasi iba din yung process niya. Found talaga siya. Dante Mendoza workshop talaga. Alam na niyang pumasok sa character niya na inaaral talaga din niya na unconventional. Surprisingly unconventional. Nakikisama sa mga nag-mo-motor, ganyan. Iba yung workshop niya. Si Sean kasi learned niya talaga. Pati sa pagsayaw, magaling magsayaw yan eh. Isang hindi nag-aral at isang nag-aral, ganun yung labanan nung dalawa eh. Surprisingly parehas magaling. Pero proven na na all time high ang Taya at Mahjong Nights ni Sean de Guzman. At inaamin namin ito ni Vince na tinitingala niya si Sean. Siyempre nauna si Sean. Siya ang unang unang f**kboy ng Vivamax. Walang makakakuha ng titulo na yun,” he admitted.
