As a guitar played the accompaniment of the song, which Cuneta recorded in 1978 when she was 12 years old, Pangilinan started singing — but using his own lyrics.
Here’s an excerpt: “Ang gusto ko lang ay mapangiti siya kapag narinig na iyang Saranghae [I love you in Korean] iniibig ko siya higit nang dalwang dekada at kahit magdagdag ng taon, hindi maluluma ng panahon.”
Pangilinan and Cuneta’s children also helped out in the birthday surprise, with singer Frankie as the musical director, Miel as the videographer, and Mimig as the “moral support provider.”
