After playing a sex therapist in The Kangks Show, Angelica Panganiban takes on another memorable role as Yanna, a financial advisor-turned-author whose world crumbles when she comes home to her husband, Y (played by RK Bagatsing), who then leaves her for his one great love. Yanna immediately gets drunk and livestreams her heartbreak on social media making her story go viral overnight. From then on, she becomes known as “The Goodbye Girl.”

“Magsisimula yung story magmula ng mag-goodbye ang lahat sa kanya. Ang trabaho niya, ang love life niya, ang buhay niya talaga. So ginawa niya sigurong therapy na rin na improve yung sarili niya, maka-move on siya and baguhin at ayusin yung mga maling choices na nagawa niya sa buhay niya. In a way hindi niya napapansin na nakakatulong na rin pala siya sa mga ibang babaeng nasaktan at gusto rin mag-move on or gusto ng magising sa katotohoonan sa ginagawa niyang proseso na mag-post ng vlog bago nga siya gumawa ng libro. So naging inspirasyon siya at naging inspirasyon din ang mga babae na sinusulat niya,” Angelica shared during The Goodbye Girl mediacon last January 31.

Angelica shared her experience working with onscreen husband RK Bagatsing for the very first time.

“Nabigla ako kasi parang first time ko siyang nakasama and kahit paulit ulit akong magkuwento noon, tinyaga niya tapos pinansin pa rin niya ako the morning after nung kuwentuhan namin nung gabi. So parang naisip ko mabait na tao itong si RK, pinagtiyagaan niya ako (laughs) At ganado pa rin siyang kausapin ako sa breakfast,” she recalled.

In The Goodbye Girl, Angelica’s other leading man JC De Vera plays the role of  a publisher named Jeff who appears out of the blue to offer her a book deal.

“Si JC matagal na like magkasama kami sa Banana Sundae for the longest time and sa mga pelikula. Ang dami naming projects together. Nag-Mrs. Reyes kami, nag-Kangks Show kami right before namin gawin ‘tong Goodbye Girl. So marami rami na kaming pinagsamahan ni JC... Pa-improve lang ng pa-improve yung personality niya lalo na family man di ba? Mas exciting na kausapin kasi lumalawak na yung mga pananaw at aspeto niya sa buhay. Di lang puro inuman at ‘San tayo bukas? Ano gagawin natin?’ Ngayon parang may direksiyon talaga yung taong kausap mo so mas lumalaim,” she said.
