It's definitely one of the most beloved shows to ever air on Philippine television -- so much that it's a wonder why it has yet to receive a local remake treatment.
But this Thursday, whether Filipino fans wanted to or not, they got to see what their favorite "Meteor Garden" lead characters would look like if they were played by local actors.
It's all for fun, of course, courtesy of Alex Gonzaga and Luis Manzano, who dressed up as Shan Cai and Dao Ming Si, respectively, for an apparent parody project of the Taiwanese
version that they'll be releasing "very, very soon."
It remains unclear whether if it is for Gonzaga's popular YouTube vlog, where she recently parodied Netflix's "Bird Box."
As seen on Instagram, the goofy pair, famous for their banter online, were going for the look in one of the series' most memorable scenes -- where Shan Cai ran after Dao Ming Si as he was aboard the bus.
"Very, very soon, makikilala niyo na si Dao Ming Lu and San-CaiThy," wrote Manzano, playing around with their character's names.
