Love blooms in Dangwa on Monday

Janine Gutierrez

Love, they say, blooms in the most unexpected places. The hashtag #DangwaGirl went viral recently as university belt students posted about a mysterious girl giving roses away on the streets of Manila. The lovely flower girl was revealed on GMA’s 24 Oras newscast as Janine Gutierrez – who found a unique way to promote her TV series. Janine spent a day giving out red roses to strangers she met along the way, similar to her role in the Network’s upcoming series entitled Dangwa. The recipients – particularly the young men – were thrilled and quickly posted their encounters on social media.

In the Dangwa series, the lives of various characters are changed by a chance meeting with Rosa (to be played by Janine), an enchantingly beautiful flower vendor in Manila’s most popular flower market.

Each character who buys a flower from Rosa will discover that love unexpectedly blooms in his or her own life. A new love story will be introduced to viewers every Monday and end on a Friday – except for the story of Rosa herself, which will slowly unfold as the season progresses.

Rosa’s heart-warming smile and mischievous ways capture the hearts of flower delivery boy Baste (played by Mark Herras) and furniture designer Lorenzo (played by Aljur Abrenica), but there is more to the girl than they ever expected.

Dangwa’s pilot week, which starred Kapuso teens Barbie Forteza and Ruru Madrid, was penned by Jerome Zamora and directed by Adolf Alix, Jr. and Rember Gelera. This is followed by equally engrossing love stories portrayed by Carla Abellana and Rafael Rosell, Rhian Ramos and Geoff Eigenmann, Bianca Umali and Miguel Tanfelix, and Pauleen Luna and Gerald Napoles.

Dangwa also boasts appealing theme music entitled Pag-ibig written and arranged by Simon Tan and performed by OPM rock band Spongecola.

Discover the mystery behind Rosa and fall in love every week with the stories to be featured on Dangwa, which airs only on GMA Pinoy TV.
