Father's Day, A Date and KC Concepcion

Frankly, I have never been a fan of the Filipina actress KC Concepcion. I always see her just someone who got the privilege to enter showbiz just because she is the daughter of Sharon Cuneta. If KC Concepcion has a mother who had lesser fame, then maybe she will never be famous.

To those who don’t know, KC Concepcion is one of the famous young actresses here in the Philippines. She is one of the ace stars of ABS-CBN network, the owner of The Filipino Channel (TFC). KC Concepcion starred in many romance movies and is also well sought product endorser.

KC Concepcion

During Father’s Day, me and my beloved decided to watch the movie “I’ll be There,” which is starred by KC Concepcion, Gabby Concepcion (her real father), and Jericho Rosales. At first, I am hesitant to watch this movie because it’s a drama movie. But still, I gave it a go.
.

I have nothing against the movie. Actually, I liked it. This movie of KC Concepcion is different from all the Filipino drama movies I saw. There is less heavy drama and less histrionics. The movie just focused on the central theme, which is the relationship between a father and daughter. The love story between KC Concepcion and Jericho was not glossed over but used to enhance the major story. 

In the movie, KC Concepcion returned home from abroad to claim her share of the inheritance. The tension is high because Gabby abandoned his family abroad and KC Concepcion did not saw him for fifteen years. The story circulated on fixing the relationship between the two. The drama between KC Concepcion and Gabby Concepcion is also somewhat real because in real life Gabby left KC Concepcion.

I could say that the movie is good. KC Concepcion’s acting is OK. Jericho’s character is nice. However, my major problem is the comedienne Cacai Bautista. Her character was placed as comic relief in the movie. However, her character is over-acting and makes the scenes unrealistic and corny. The director should have toned down her performance and planned better scenes to lighten up the movie’s mood. Another problem is Gabby’s acting because he can’t show his emotions well because of botox. He sacrificed his facial expression to make himself look young.

Those are just my little disagreements. However, all in all, this movie of KC Concepcion is good.

  1. I know Jericho Rosales. There was a very nice drama series shown on Malaysian tv in which he starred with the other fellow - Diethler Ocampo. I've seen some nice Filipino movies...but can;t remember the names.

    1. Now I believe that Jericho is popular even outside the Philippines. He had a show with the Malaysian actress Carmen Soo.

    1. We are in the same page here my friend. I am not an a fan of Filipino movies . Actually, I despise Philippine showbiz due to its shallowness.

      But I have to admit, things are changing. The Philippine movie is transforming but at a very slow rate. And that is good.

  6. I agree with you that if KC is not from a "Megastar" maybe she wont be given a priveleged. However, I also saw her in most of her shows, She's not so good in actingi bet, i haven't seen the movie but based on the trailers i cannot really see thier emotions it look so pale uncooked, i dont know. I havent seen the movie but this is my empression.

    I think KC is more good on hosting and she needs to have a lot of experience to bloom.

    1. Well, I think that KC's problem is that she needs more workshops and practice to hone her acting skills. However, in the movie, her acting is good. The reason for this, I believe, is that she based her emotions in her experiences when Gabby Concepcion left her and her mother.

      Actually, we have to many of artistas that are worthless in acting. If showbiz is a professional and serious business, I believe that we should remove all worthless artistas.
