“Finding You” from Regal Entertainment, Inc. is going to be the very first local romantic-drama that centers around a major plot detail of a rare medical condition called hyperthymesia which Jerome Ponce’s onscreen character Nel is afflicted with.

This very unique and unorthodox important plot detail will directly affect the interaction, dialogue, and character dynamics of the main onscreen characters in this soon-to-be-released movie.


It certainly throws a proverbial wrench into the formula of what a local romantic-drama should be or could be.

Now, it got me thinking what would Barbie Imperial, Jane Oineza and Jerome Ponce do if they had hyperthymesia in real life?


Below are Barbie Imperial’s, Jane Oineza’s and Jerome Ponce’s thoughts and answers to my question.

Barbie Imperial: “Ako naman po, siguro kung may hyperthymesia ako, tatanggapin ko na lang po. Tatanggapin ko na lang na yan ang binigay ni God sa akin. And hindi ko din siya hahanapan ng cure.

“Kasi kagaya nang sinabi ni Jane… kasi parang maalala ko ang lahat, the memories wala ako makakalimutan. Pero kung masasakit na memories naman, siguro for me yun na lang tatanggapin ko din.

“Para sa akin kasi ang pain naman ay everyday, parang everyday yun na pinagdadaanan mo. Like for me, meron ako mga pain na naranasan before na kung hindi ko pinag daanan mga yun hindi ako magiging kung ano ako ngayon.”

Jane Oineza: “I won’t pretend na alam ko kung may cure, kasi mahirap na din. Kasi siyempre lahat nang bagay ay naalala mo. Lahat ng memories ay buo. Kahit mga maliliit na bagay ay naalala mo.

“Pero, siguro, hindi ko siya hahanapan ng cure. Iisipin ko na lang siya in a positive way na ang dami mo din naalala na memories, ang dami mo din naalala na masasaya na bonding, as in lahat na alaala mo na lahat sila ay magiging unforgettable.

“So, yun, titingnan ko na lang siya in a positive way.


Jerome Ponce: “Sa akin siguro, aaralin ko lahat ng language ng buong mundo. Tutal maalala mo naman lahat. So parang na ikutan ko na din ang buong mundo. Maging useful ako sa mundo. So yun na lang iniisip ko. Titingnan ko na lang sa brighter side at hindi sa bad side. I would read books all time, hour by hour, day by day. Yun lang. Enjoy mo na lang ang life. So that is life at hindi mo naman mababago ang buhay na binigay sayo.”
