"Boystown is not a prison," pointed out director Lino Cayetano. He will be helming the upcoming Your Song Presents Boystown starring Enchong Dee, Robi Domingo, AJ Perez, Chris Gutierrez, Aaron Villaflor, Dino Imperial and Sam Concepcion. Collectively known as ASAP's Gigger Boys, these young men immersed themselves in the real Boystown in Marikina to have a "feel" of the place.
"At first medyo hindi pa clear yung idea ko kung ano talaga yung Boystown, kaya itong workshop-immersion namin ay malaking tulong para mas maintindihan ko at namin kung ano talaga ang sinasabi nilang Boystown," said Enchong .
Robi voiced out: "Akala ko nga noong una, juvenile delinquents ang mga nakatira sa Boystown, pero hindi pala."
The boys brought items as giveaways to the real boys of Boystown as they also interacted with the kids who were residing in the said area.
"Malaking bagay na ma-immerse muna sila sa lugar. Makakatulong kasi yun sa pag-portray nila sa character nila sa series," observed Direk Lino.
Catch the Giggger Boys in a different light in Your Song Presents Boystown, which will air soon on ABS-CBN.
