In a rare occasion, former contestants of GMA-7's reality show StarStruck Kids were seen together again after 14 years.
Eight of the finalists were present during the reunion: Bea Binene, Sandy Talag, Paul Salas, Sam Bumatay, Gabriel Roxas, Shamel Leask, JM Reyes, and Miguel Tanfelix.
Photos of the event were posted by Paul, Sam, and Sandy on their respective Instagram accounts.
ABS-CBN actress Barbie Imperial, who is rumored to be Paul's girlfriend, was also spotted at the event.
In a short conversation with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) through Facebook Messenger, Bea shared some stories about the reunion that happened last Saturday, June 2.
How did they plan the reunion?
"Si Miguel ang nagstart ata. Haha. Una sa Instagram lang bilang di pa namin alam mga numbers then nagdecide na sa Viber na. Ayun. Tapos sila sila nagusap kung saan, kelan and ano.
"Then ang mga pinagusapan namin is like yung mga pinakanatatandaan namin na memory ng StarStruck Kids, then kung ano na course nila Shamel kasi sila yung di talaga namin nakikita palagi."
PEP.ph also asked Bea if she was able to speak to Paul, who just recently returned to GMA-7 after several years of being with ABS-CBN.
She answered, "Feeling ko dahil alam ko na magkikita at magkikita kami ni Paul bilang GMA na din siya kaya di din kami masyado nakapagkwentuhan. Haha."
This marks the first time that Miguel Tanfelix and Sam Bumatay were seen together again after more than 10 years.
It may be recalled that Sam played the original Lawiswis in the telefantasya Mulawin, wherein Miguel portrayed the role of Pagaspas.
Miguel reprised the role in the 2017 sequel Mulawin vs. Ravena, while Lawiswis was played by his love team partner Bianca Umali.
StarStruck Kids was the only kiddie edition held for GMA-7's reality-based artista search that was aired in 2004.
The other contestants who were unable to join the reunion were Ella Guevara, Kurt Perez, Madi Yu, Renz Juan, Serge Septimo, and Uno Guerta.
Sam Bumatay and Kurt Perez were hailed as Female and Male Ultimate Survivors, while Ella Guevara and Miguel Tanfelix were named as the First Princess and Prince of the batch.
Currently, only Bea, Sandy, Paul, and Miguel remain active in show business.
Miguel is part of the Kapuso prime-time series Kambal Karibal, while Bea is set to top-bill the upcoming drama series Kapag Nahati Ang Puso (formerly titled Karibal Ko Ang Aking Ina).
