Evangelista posted snapshots of their reunion on her Instagram account. She writes in the caption, “Growing up together was fun … seeing where life has taken all of us is pretty cool.”

A Nostalgic Star Magic Night

The reunion brought nostalgia to a lot of fans, reliving the early 2000s of television where these actors headlined successful projects in ABS-CBN. All of them have also become part of ABS-CBN’s noontime show, “ASAP.”

At press time, only Diether Ocampo and Kyle Echarri are talents of Star Magic, while Piolo Pascual remains as a contract star of ABS-CBN.

Among them, Heart Evangelista was the first to leave ABS-CBN and Star Magic, and still remains as a talent of GMA Network and Sparkle. Bea Alonzo, who is now managed by Shirley Kuan, is a contract artist of GMA Network. Maja Salvador now owns her own talent management company, Crown Artist Management, while working for all TV networks. John Lloyd Cruz is now managed by Salvador and headlines the Kapuso sitcom “Happy ToGetHer.”

Mr. M and Alberto are also now with Sparkle, GMA Network’s talent management arm.

It was also a reunion of sorts for Rosales, Ocampo, and Pascual, who are part of The Hunks with Carlos Agassi and Bernard Palanca. The group was popular for their build and for doing sexy numbers in “ASAP” that they would even do successful shows abroad.

In 2003, Evangelista and Alonzo headlined a twin-bill movie, “My First Romance,” with their respective love-team partners, John Prats and John Lloyd Cruz.
