Kim Chiu’s ‘Bawal Lumabas’ soon to become series
MANILA, Philippines — Expect Kim Chiu to star in an upcoming series, this time inspired by the “Bawal Lumabas” viral meme.
In an Instagram post on Monday, the Kapamilya actress could not hide her excitement about her upcoming project.
“5 months ago I was lost, down and hopeless but never did I regret anything,… anything that I said and stand for,” she said, adding that she lost her confidence and even questioned herself.
“But in the middle of everything that has happened, I didn’t lose my faith in HIM. Alam ko naman binibigyan tayo ng pagsubok ng Panginoon dahil alam niya ang kakayahan natin, para pagtibayin pa tayo lalo,” Chiu later said.
(I know that he will give me a test because he knows our capabilities to strengthen us further.)
And upon seeing the teaser for her upcoming series, Chiu said that she cried tears of joy.
“First time kong makita to kanina…. bumalik lahat,.. naiyak ako ng masaya. Grabe. Salamat po. wala ako masabi,” she said.
(I saw this for the first time a while ago. I remembered everything. I cried tears of joy. Thank you so much, I couldn’t say anything.)
Chiu’s “Bawal Lumabas” started off as an internet gaffe after she tried to compare the implementation of the National Telecommunications Commission’s cease-and-desist order against ABS-CBN to classroom rules.
Despite the criticism she received, she then turned this into something positive as “Bawal Lumabas” later became a hit song.
Not only that, Chiu started selling “Bawal Lumabas” merchandise. With the earnings she received, the actress was able to donate 1,500 food packages to families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as P300,000 for mass testing.
“Bawal Lumabas: The Series”, meanwhile, has no release date as of this writing.
