Bakekang is GMA-7’s latest telenovela. It is the story of Bakekang, described as “a loving heart trapped beneath an ugly facade, ignored and unappreciated by those who fail to see beyond what is skin-deep.”
Bakekang’s only desire, iGMA.tv says, “is to feel a little affection from the world that has deprived her of everything she has always longed for.” The latest Carlo Caparas character to jump from komiks to television, Bakekang will rise from a sorry state of ridicule to the pedestal of triumph and coveted fame.”
Just a thought–a very shallow one, though–when Bakekang finally become successful, will she do something that this day’s modern celebrities do? Plastic surgery procedures or a cosmetic makeover, perhaps? Hmm, maybe not.
