Watchmen Daily Journal - - FUN. ENTERTAINMENT. EMOTIONS. LIFESTYLE - (James Pa­trick Anar­con,

View­ers are talk­ing about the changes im­ple­mented in ABSCBN's drama an­thol­ogy show "Maalaala Mo Kaya" (MMK).

In De­cem­ber 2018, "MMK" launched a teaser of its new look, in­clud­ing a new logo and new set-up for the spiels of its host, Charo San­tosCon­cio.

As seen in the teaser, Charo can now hold spiels in an ex­te­rior lo­ca­tion.

Ne­ti­zens no­ticed that in­stead of her usual sit­ting po­si­tion, Charo is now seen stand­ing up as she in­vited ev­ery­one to share their story through MMK.

On Jan­uary 5, Face­book user Mark Jhay Sandiego posted a screen­shot of Charo stand­ing up, and wrote in the cap­tion, "Ayieeee sawakas tu­mayo ka din HAHAHA #MMK"

As of this writ­ing, the post has reg­is­tered 11K re­ac­tions and 12K shares.

An­other Face­book page called Di Umano also no­ticed that Charo stood up in the teaser.

The page wrote in its cap­tion, "Mat­a­pos ang na­paka­ha­bang pana­hon, sa wakas ay nakatayo na si Ma'am Charo San­tos sa MMK!"

In the past, Charo used to sit down on a chair or a couch while read­ing the life sto­ries of let­ter senders.

The set of "MMK" has also evolved dur­ing its 28-year run on tele­vi­sion.

There were a few times in the past when Charo was seen stand­ing in her open­ing spiels for "MMK."

She opened the show while stand­ing up for the 1997 episode, "Agiw," star­ring Jeri­cho Ros­ales, Jackie Lou Blanco, and Glo­ria Romero.

The new logo of "MMK" was first seen last Satur­day, Jan­uary 5, when it aired the re­plays of McCoy de Leon and Ger­ald An­der­son's episodes.

"MMK," which is go­ing on its 28th year, is now un­der RSB Drama Unit, ABSCBN's en­ter­tain­ment de­part­ment helmed by busi­ness unit head, Ruel San­tos Bayani.

Coin­ci­den­tally, Bayani used to be a writer, head­writer, cre­ative man­ager, and di­rec­tor of "MMK" episodes in the past.

The first RSBpro­duced episode of "MMK" will be top-billed by Bar­bie Im­pe­rial and Paulo An­ge­les. It will air this Satur­day, Jan­uary 12.

Charo San­tos-Con­cio be­came vi­ral on­line re­cently when ne­ti­zens shared screen­shots of her stand­ing up for her "MMK" spiels. For a long time, view­ers were used to see­ing her sit­ting down while host­ing "MMK."
