Gil Cuerva asked to name which industry has a bigger illegal drug problem: showbiz or modeling.

Gumaganap si Gil Cuerva bilang PDEA (Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency) agent sa GMA-7 primetime series na Beautiful Justice.

Ano ang naitutulong ng kanilang serye upang masugpo ang illegal drugs sa bansa?

“I think, at least, we aim to educate the viewers on the war against drugs and about serious drug issues and how PDEA actually tackles these issues.

“Kaya nga malaking blessing na we have someone like Kuya Vic [Victor Neri] on set and sometimes yung PDEA agents who come to the set to provide their knowledge and guidance, di ba?

“So that it’s true to life.”

Sa Beautiful Justice, ang karakter ni Victor ay isang PDEA agent.

In real life, si Victor ay trained bomb disposal technician ng Philippine Coast Guard at naging parte ng fugitive search unit ng Bureau of Immigration.

Ani Gil, “So, yung mga nakikita ng mga viewers sa TV, it’s true to life, it’s actually what happens.

“Tulad ng sinabi ni Kuya Vic, sometimes, yung mga nakikita natin sa news, it’s actually a small percentage pero sila yung worth watching about.

“Kasi, sila yung mga pinaka-intense or, for lack of a better word, intense na balita.

“So what the viewers might not know are the other percentages or the other kinds of cases that actually happen na hindi naha-highlight sa news.

“So I guess, that’s also one of the objectives of the show, to inform the viewers sa ibang mga kaso ng drugs and how PDEA actually tries to solve these issues.”

Na-interview namin si Gil sa taping ng Beautiful Justice noong September 20 sa Felicidad Mansion Events Place sa Roosevelt Avenue, Quezon City.

Bago nag-artista ay modelo si Gil at parehong may mga nagdo-droga sa showbusiness at modeling industry.

“Well, to be frank po, I think both the modeling industry and this industry, showbiz industry, you know, parang napaka-exposed talaga sa drugs.

“Or I dunno, maybe connections or whatever reason pero you see it naman talaga, e. I mean I’m not...matanda na ako, I mean I’m 24, siyempre aware ako sa nangyayari so you know, at nakikita ko rin naman.

“So you know, ayun,” pakli ni Gil.

Saan mas talamak ang sitwasyon ng droga: sa showbiz o sa modeling?

“I think it’s a tie! Different lang yung context, different lang yung scenario.

“Yeah, it depends talaga sa context, it’s an apples-and-oranges comparison, but either way, they’re both fruits.

“So what I’m trying to say is, it happens—different problems, it happens in both worlds.”
