Charo Santos-Concio became viral online recently when netizens shared screenshots of her standing up for her MMK spiels. For a long time, viewers were used to seeing her sitting down while hosting Maalaala Mo Kaya.



Viewers are talking about the changes implemented in ABS-CBN's drama anthology show Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK).

In December 2018, MMK launched a teaser of its new look, including a new logo and new set-up for the spiels of its host, Charo Santos-Concio.

As seen in the teaser, Charo can now hold spiels in an exterior location.

Netizens noticed that instead of her usual sitting position, Charo is now seen standing up as she invited everyone to share their story through MMK.

On January 5, Facebook user Mark Jhay Sandiego posted a screenshot of Charo standing up, and wrote in the caption, "Ayieeee sawakas tumayo ka din HAHAHA #MMK"

As of this writing, the post has registered 11K reactions and 12K shares.

Another Facebook page called Di Umano also noticed that Charo stood up in the teaser.

The page wrote in its caption, "Matapos ang napakahabang panahon, sa wakas ay nakatayo na si Ma'am Charo Santos sa MMK!"

In the past, Charo used to sit down on a chair or a couch while reading the life stories of letter senders.

The set of MMK has also evolved during its 28-year run on television.
