MANILA – The eldest son of celebrity couple Anthony and Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan is now part of the top music channel in the Philippines.

Donny Pangilinan is one of the two new faces of MYX, who is expected take over the music channel's shows this month.

Pangilinan, who turned 18 last February, has obtained a huge following on social media with over 35,000 followers on Twitter and more than 68,000 on Instagram even before appearing on TV.

Joining Pangilinan on MYX is Sunny Kim, who is 100% pure Korean but 100% Pinoy at heart.

She first came to the Philippines when she was six years old before her family finally decided to stay in the country for good.

Kim is currently taking up broadcast communication at the University of the Philippines in Diliman. She first came to MYX as a translator for a Korean awards show back in 2014 before applying for an internship program under the music channel.

Kim later auditioned for the Vlogger Search and ultimately won the competition with her fun and quirky personality.
