In the story, perfect couple Anna (Kylie) and Ed (Mark) both strive hard to achieve their dreams — to finish their studies and to live a happy and complete family life. Unfortunately, fate doesn’t favor them as a life-changing tragedy happens turning Ed into a disembodied spirit. Anna will be the main suspect for what happened to Ed. She will be imprisoned and will pay for a crime that she didn’t do. And when she continues her life outside jail, it will be miserable as no one trusts her anymore. Meanwhile, Ed’s soul wanders to the living world hoping he could help Anna find the truth. In Anna’s quest for justice, she develops a special relationship with Miguel (Benjamin), the brother of Connie (Pauleen) who was secretly in love with Ed. Could Anna easily forget her promise of love for Ed? Or will true love remain to be unforgettable?

Fall in love all over again with the all-time favorite Koreanovela COFFEE PRINCE as GMA Network brings to primetime TV the Pinoy remake of the well-loved drama series. It will replace One True Love beginning October 8 on the Telebabad block.
Coffee Prince became one of network’s highest-rating Koreanovelas in 2008 and captivated the hearts of Filipino viewers for its engaging storyline, witty dialogues and endearing characters.
And to reprise the immensely popular characters of Arthur and Andy in the Pinoy adaptation is the hottest and sought-after loveteam of Aljur Abrenica and Kris Bernal. The two Kapuso artists are both primed to star in this romantic-comedy series with their excellent onscreen chemistry and natural acting skills.
Making Coffee Prince even grander are two of the network’s fresh-faced and fast-rising stars who will add spice to Aljur and Kris’ love story. Introducing in this soap are Max Collins as Arlene; Benjamin Alves as Errol in their very first primetime project.
Adding star power to the program are the scene-stealing actors and actresses who are the cute baristas at the Coffee Prince shop including Boy2 Quizon as Ervin; Steven Silva as Bamboo; Fabio Ide as Leo; Sef Cadayona as Baldo; Kim Komatsu as Mylene.
Playing equally vital roles are some of today’s biggest names in drama: Tessie Tomas as Beth; Leo Martinez as Ernie; Ces Quesada as Lorna; Ronnie Henares as Oliver; and Ms Celia Rodriguez as Mamita.
Coffee Prince tells the story of Andy, a hardworking young woman who supports her mother and sister after the death of their father. To sustain their daily needs, she earns a living as a tricycle driver.
Arthur, on the other hand, is a happy-go-lucky and wealthy bachelor whose family owns the biggest coffee factory in the country. His grandmother constantly pressures him to settle down but Arthur is not yet ready to tie the knot.
In order to avoid the dates arranged by his grandmother, Arthur hires Andy to pretend to be his gay lover. He doesn’t know that Andy is just pretending to be a guy to keep her job in Arthur’s coffee shop. Desperate to payoff her family’s debt, Andy is left with no choice but to agree with Arthur’s plan and to continue with her charade.
Things get complicated when Andy starts to fall in love with Arthur. He is likewise unable to control his feelings for Andy and he starts questioning his sexuality.
How will Arthur deal with his romantic feelings for Andy? If Arthur finds out about Andy’s real identity and lies, will the truth sabotage their romance and relationship? Will the love story of Arthur and Andy have a happy ending despite the complications and interventions of Errol and Arlene in their lives?
Coffee Prince is under the helm of acclaimed actor at TV director Ricky Davao with Des Garbes-Severino as Headwriter. Prince of Soul Jay-R gives a new interpretation for the program’s theme song, Because of You.
Coffee Prince finds its way back into the hearts of Filipino viewers beginning Monday, October 8 right after Luna Blanca on GMA.

Body Talk with Benjamin Alves!

He’s every inch (every sound, and every angle) a dead-ringer for Piolo Pascual (they even laugh the same way). It’s not surprising because Benjamin Alves and Piolo happen to be relatives. Benjamin’s father is Piolo’s cousin.

“But I’d rather cultivate my own identity than capitalize on my being related to Tito Piolo,” insisted Benjamin, who is under contract with the Kapuso network. Rightly so, since besides good looks, Benjamin has impressive credentials: A summa cum laude AB English (major in Literature) graduate from the University of Guam in that island US territory where he was raised (but he was born in the Philippines). He writes stories and poems. “I would love to do a screenplay,” he said, “and try to direct it myself, with a cast of my choice.”

That’s the long-range plan of Benjamin who gets his big break as the lover of Lovi Poe in Regal Films’Guni-Guni, a suspense-thriller about a girl (Lovi) possessed by the restless spirit of her long-dead twin, which marks the directorial debut of Tara Illenberger, opening nationwide on Aug. 22 as the outfit’s double-celebration special offering (Regal Matriarch Mother Lily Monteverde’s birthday and Regal’s 51st anniversary).

An Arian (March 31, 1989), Benjamin is 5’10” tall; weighs 160 lbs.; and wears small/medium shirt and briefs, and size-10.5 shoes.

“I don’t really follow a specific diet but I do watch what I eat, especially if there is an upcoming pictorial or show that requires me to be topless, like the Bench Universe show this September.”

What’s usually for breakfast, lunch and dinner?

“I usually wake up early, like 7 a.m., and take a banana and oatmeal. After going to the gym, I’d take a heavy lunch of a sandwich or burger. Dinner is where I usually try to eat protein. Of course, healthy snacks in between, just to keep the metabolism going.”

What food do you always crave for, what food do you avoid?

“I have a notorious sweet tooth. My dad, when we lived here, worked at Magnolia so we always had ice cream. Unfortunately, these are the types of food that I avoid come pictorial time.”

Any snacks between meals?

“Always, almonds and fruits or fruit shakes.”

How much water do you take per day (soda, coffee, tea or energy drinks)?

“A lot! Usually water, I rarely take energy drinks but I am a big coffee and tea person.”

What vitamins do you take?

“A daily multi-vitamins.”

What workout do you do?

“I run…I love to run outdoors. I play basketball every week with my friends who are also from GMA. When I’m at the gym, I usually just do cardio exercise and light weight lifting. I really don’t want to get too defined. I would rather get my definition naturally from being outdoors.”

What part of your body needs improvement?

“My chest. I want a more defined chest, hehehe!”

What part of your body is most vulnerable?

“If we’re talking about weakness, I think my back is the first to go. I really have to make sure that I stretch my back before any physical activity. My ankles, too — that’s due to years of basketball.”

What part of your body is your favorite?

“My abs! Hahahaha! I am gifted with abs.”

What part of a girl’s body do you notice first?

“Legs. I have a weakness for legs. Hehehehe!”

What else in a girl turns you on?

“If she has a voice, if she’s down-to-earth and family-oriented.”

And what’s in a girl that turns you off?

“Girls who think too highly of themselves. The line between confidence and over-confidence is very thin.”

How’s your love life?

“Non-existent, but I’m happy.”

Do you have a night life?

“I usually give myself a night every week to see friends and just relax, be myself.”

How much sleep do you get per night??

“I’m not too big on sleeping. I usually get about four to six hours per night and I’m good.”

Favorite sleepwear??

“Seriously, Bench underwear.”

Do you snore??

“I have to sleep next to a girl to find out! Hahahaha!”

Do you talk in your sleep?

“Again, we need to ask her. Hahahaha!”

Do you sleepwalk?

“Yes…every morning when I have to go to work.Hahahaha!”

“I have two since I’ve been here, but I need more!”

Last thing that you do before you go to sleep?

“Text somebody ‘Good night!,’ read The Bible and then pray.”

First thing that you do as soon as you wake up?

“Pray, read The Bible and eat!”

How do you unwind, cope with stress? Massage or meditation? What sport do you play?

“Thankfully, I can read and watch movies and I’m able to de-stress with it. If they are available, I usually try to get a massage during tapings and shootings. Again, I play basketball.

“I’m an avid runner. Also, I’m getting into boxing; it’s really interesting.”

Favorite city?

“Makati. I love Makati.”

Favorite hideaway?

“My room, minus the cell phone.”

How long does it take you to fix yourself??

“It depends where I’m going. On regular days, I could be out the door in 30 minutes.”

Are you vain like most good-looking men??

“Hahahaha! I don’t think so.”

Name three men that you think have nice bodies.

“Brad Pitt (in Fight Club), Justin Timberlake and Paul Walker.”

And three women that you think have nice bodies.

Jessica Biel, Natalie Portman and Jessica Alba.”

Using only body language, how would you make a girl know that you admire her?

“Wink. Hahahaha! I’m kidding. Ummm, probably smirk. I’m a minimalist, the smirk works, guys!Hahahaha!”
