Joel Lamangan dares to tackle the struggles of Japan-bound male dancers in his newest indie film titled I ♥ Dreamguyz (I Love Dreamguyz).
Watch the characters of Marco Morales, Mhyco Aquino, Miggy Valdez, Sherwin Ordoñez, and Jay-L Dizon play the part of hip hop dancers in their latest film that will premiere on November 2, 2009. It will be shown at Robinsons Galleria, Robinsons Ermita, Cinerama Isetann Recto, Gotesco Grand Central, Remar, Roben and Ultra Vista Cebu.
Written by Eric Ramos, I Love Dreamguyz is the third project of DMV Entertainment, the same company behind Walang Kawala amd Heavenly Touch.
One of the Dreamguyz is Jay-L Dizon, who was part of the Top 16 of StarStruck Season 3. He is also a mainstay in TV5’s comedy show Ogags. Viewers can look forward to his dramatic scene with his mother (portrayed by film/stage actress Mailes Kanapi).
"Doon niya kami mas lalong pinahanga," says Direk Manny Valera. "Pati mga kasama namin sa staff, namumugto ang mga mata pagkatapos i-shoot ang mga eksenang iyon ni Jay-L. After that, we were all in agreement na may mararating ang batang ito."
SYNOPSIS. Five young men land contracts as entertainers in Japan and form a new hip-hop dance group called Dreamguyz. Guided by their gay manager Didi (Jao Mapa), they spend the next few months before their trip bonding as friends sharing a common dream of finding greener pasture in the Land of the Rising Sun.
Michael worked as a dancer in Japan when he was still a minor, using a fictitious name and a forged passport. He makes sure his recruiter doesn’t find out he’s not a first-timer in Japan like the rest of the guys. Benjo seeks to escape a cruel stepfather and find his missing older brother, a musician turned illegal alien in Japan. Alvin is Didi’s lover, who openly expresses his affections for his benefactor while hoping to make his own money in Japan.
The two members who share choreographic duties, Jake and Rico, quickly develop a secret romance. Problem is, Jake lives with his devoted girlfriend Jenny (Niña Jose), who supports him financially. On top of his dilemma, Jake is soon discovered to have a heart ailment, jeopardizing his chances of joining the group’s trip to Japan.
As a former Japayuki himself, Didi knows a stint in Japan hardly guarantees financial windfall for the group. So he enlists the members in a networking company that has been giving him ample dividends. Unfortunately, the company collapses without warning. It ruins Didi and threatens to dissolve not just his relationship with Alvin but the group itself. Violence erupts on the eve of their trip, which could shatter the dreams of the Dreamguyz.
