Dimples Romana is thrilled that their 2008 ABS-CBN series, Lobo, was noticed by viewers again, 11 years after it aired on television.

This is after Angel Locsin's paragliding scene went viral on social media, with netizens comparing it to a scene in the 2019 Netflix Korean drama Crash Landing On You (CLOY).

In the 2008 Pinoy series, Angel's character Lyka, who works as a fashion assistant, reluctantly poses for a photoshoot with a paraglider. Strong winds suddenly cut the paraglider loose, and Lyka ends up in a forest.

Her fall disrupts a military operation led by Piolo Pascual's character Noah. The army lieutenant catches Lyka in his arms and carries her away to safety as gunshots rain on them.

The viral scene was picked up by Instagram user @piolopascual_ph and, furthermore, edited with the theme song of CLOY for background music.

Dimples, who is also part of the scene, is cast as Lyka's best friend, who worried from the start about Lyka doing the paragliding shoot.

In an Instagram conversation with Dimples on April 13, PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked for her reaction to that Lobo scene becoming viral.

Dimples said she was thrilled that people still remember the teleserye after 11 long years.

She told PEP.ph, "Nakakatuwa kasi ang tagal na noon, pero relevant pa din siya ngayon.

"It's what you hope for when you do a project. That, in time, it will still be relevant and still give joy to those who’ll get to watch it."

What makes it more special is that Dimples is a fan of CLOY, which is top-billed by Korean actor Hyun Bin.

She exclaimed, "HYUN BIN IS MY OPPA. I love him!

"But seriously, ang ganda ng pagkakagawa nila, ang husay ng storytelling, and the actors were all so good. The setting was perfect."

DIMPLES ROMANA'S FRIENDSHIP WITH ANGEL LOCSIN

Of that paragliding scene, Dimples said they really had fun taping it in, by her recall, a Japanese garden in Laguna.

"It was shot I think in a Japanese garden in Laguna? Not too sure about this, pero I remember it to be super windy and cold kaya masaya kami lahat.

"It didn't feel like we were working at all. Magaan yung set at nakakatawa kasi talaga iyong eksena."

Dimples also said her friendship with Angel was just starting at the time.

Lobo was Angel's first teleserye in ABS-CBN following her controversial transfer from rival network GMA-7 in 2007. It also marked Angel's first time to work with Dimples in a project.

Dimples recalled, "Medyo [close] pa lang. We really enjoyed each other’s company kaya wala kaming ginawa kung hindi tumawa nang tumawa at mag-take ng mga pictures."

After Lobo, Angel and Dimples worked with each other in two projects in 2009: the movie Love Me Again and the Filipino adaptation of the Korean television drama series Only You.
