QUEZON CITY, Philippines – The Philippines’ original heartthrob, ultimate leading man, and award-winning actor Aga Muhlach has finally returned to his home, ABS-CBN, after signing a contract with the network as one of the superstar judges in the newest search for the biggest Pinoy boyband, “Pinoy Boyband Superstar.”
It will be Aga’s first-ever stint as a judge in a talent competition. In the program, he will join phenomenal box-office superstar Vice Ganda, international K-pop sensation Sandara Park, and pop rock superstar Yeng Constantino in evaluating aspiring band members.
“The show is about giving back and mentoring. When it was offered to me, we talked about it – me and my wife. I said, I think this is the right path. Ito ang unang pagbukas ng pinto sa tamang pagpasok,” said Aga.
“I have long wanted to return to ABS-CBN. I’m happy to be back,” he added.
Aga’s illustrious career as one of the most distinguished celebrities in the country began when he was just seven. But he rose to popularity after starring in the 1980s film “Bagets,” which ultimately made him a matinee idol.
He is also known as one of the most versatile actors in the industry who has ventured into both drama and comedy via box-office films such as “Basta’t Kasama Kita,” “Sana Maulit Muli,” “All My Life,” and sitcoms such as “Oki Doki Doc.”
Aga’s charm and appeal is undeniable among female audiences, making him a credible judge in “Pinoy Boyband Superstar.” In fact, the defining legacies of his career includes being one of the top leading men in showbiz who has teamed up with the most sough-after actresses in the industry.
Aside from these, Aga also dabbled in music via his first starring role in the teen flick “Campus Beat,” which produced its own official soundtrack.
Aside from being a top product endorser and popular role model, Aga has also collected acting accolades from different award-giving bodies such as Gawad Urian and FAMAS Award.
Aga signed his contract in an event attended by ABS-CBN president at CEO Carlo Katigbak, COO for broadcast Cory Vidanes, head of finance for broadcast and integrated news and current affairs Cat Lopez, and Aga’s manager, Ethel Ramos.
Aga will soon be seen in “Pinoy Boyband Superstar,” which will look for the most versatile and musically talented male talents to form the country’s first uniquely Pinoy boyband.
