Storyline

A loving heart trapped beneath an ugly facade, ignored and unappreciated by those who fail to see beyond what is skin-deep. She is a woman whose only desire is to feel a little affection from the world that has deprived her of everything she has always longed for. In GMA Network's newest prime-time drama Bakekang, the unusual face of an unlikely heroine will emerge to present a riveting story of an ugly woman's rise from a sorry state of ridicule to the pedestal of triumph and coveted fame. Created by top-selling comics novelist and award-winning director Carlo J. Caparas, Bakekang is a comics classic serialized in Bondying Komiks which was made into a movie in 1978 with no less than Philippine show-business' superstar Nora Aunor portraying the title role. Written by igma.tv

Amazingly horrendous
27 December 2006 | by razedownSee all my reviews

A show purportedly about the revenge-of-the-ugly, and started on the premise that physical appearance is not hindrance to success. However, as it progress, it's getting too ridiculous, and it's becoming more of a series watched only because of fans' favorite actors are in it.

Yes, it's soap opera; expecting something like it's-gonna-so-open-my-mind is like shooting the moon. But really, this show lost its sense of reality. The script melts with too much cheese that it's starting to get ridiculous; and not only that, the characters are greatly performed with horrific acting and bimbo-ish character development. If you're embarrassed having your friends know you sing frustratingly in the bathroom, and haven't watched this series, consider yourself lucky. Why do they keep on making these sorts of shows anyway? On a brighter side, the other star is for Charming.
