1 On August 21, Anne Curtis launched her newest passion project: Dream Machine.
Anne talks about the "most outrageous" dream she's ever had, which was to become a singer. She used to "dream-shame" herself by thinking, "Stick to acting ka na lang because hindi ka naman talaga magaling kumanta. You don't have the voice for it." She knows it's not easy to be vocal about your dreams because people might say, "Ang taas naman ng pangarap mo."
But we all know Anne made her ultimate dream come true, and Dream Machine is her way of giving back; it's her way of encouraging others to dream big.

Thank you for your love, your sincerity, your sense of humor, and overall you-ness. You stay recharging me. I love you [with] all my heart and appreciate you more than you know! Mahal Kita."
3 Heart Evangelista's new show, My Korean Jagiya, has finally premiered! ICYDK, her leading man, Alexander Lee, is a former member of the K-pop boy band U-Kiss. How exactly did he land the role?
GMA SVP for entertainment Lilybeth Rasonable shared, "We have a relationship with Korea for a long time now because we have partnerships in terms of mga trainings so may mga kakilala na kami doon na coordinators, mga people who are connected to television and film. So we went through them and then we shortlisted. Actually, Director Mark Reyes and our program manager and our executive producer, they went there and they auditioned. Hanggang sa napili namin si Alexander." [PEP]
