Julie shares that she is both excited and challenged to be acting again: “it’s really good to be back doing a series, talagang exciting and challenging. i’m excited kasi ang ganda ng story ng Heartful Café, may new set of actors na makakawork ako, and of course the production team na bago rin.
it’s also challenging because of our current situation na new normal. We have limitations and we have to follow safety protocols.”
Apart from the romance and comedy elements of the series, David believes that viewers can also learn a thing or two about business management: “Not only ’yung mga tao matutuwa dahil romantic-comedy siya, light siya; i think matutunan din nila maging passionate when it comes to business, maging goal-driven, maging hardworking kasi ’yung mga characters sa show ay talagang very focused sa ginagawa nila.”
