The Two Sides of Yassi Pressman Showcased in 'Kurdapya' | Meet Also the Full Cast Members Presented During the Grand Press Conference!

Viva TV and Viva Artists Agency bring another exciting series on TV. This time, it's a weekly comedy series with a lead star playing a dual role! And this is a modern version of a classic film from an iconic Pablo S. Gomez's creation. The series is dubbed as a twintastic comedy since the story revolves around the twin sisters with two different lives!

And inline with the series, Viva Artists Agency and Boteju threw a grand press conference, Thursday afternoon of March 23, 2023 at the Boteju, Estancia Mall at Capitol Commons, Pasig City. The grand presscon is attended by the full cast members and director of the series.

Here is our full story about the event and our full live video coverage of the cast's interviews: 

From the success of longtime running TV series Ang Probinsiyano, Yassi Pressman is back in a new TV series for TV5. This time, a different side of Yassi will be seen. Well to be exact, TWO sides of Yassi will be seen.

Yassi takes on the titular role of Pablo S. Gomez’s beloved classic, Kurdapya. Yassi plays the role of estranged twins coming from different backgrounds: Kuring who is a provincial girl obsessed with vlogging and Daphne a seemingly perfect socialite but underappreciated daughter. By fate, the two will meet and a plan to switch with each other hatches, and thus goes the funny yet endearing story of the two.

The remake is helmed by Director Easy Ferrer, his first comedy series project with both TV5 and VIVA TV. He has also done projects in the past with Viva, particularly for the VivaMax action thriller series, Stalkers. The original movie was starred in by the biggest names in classic Pinoy showbiz, like Gloria Romero, Ramon Revilla Sr., Ric Rodrigo, Eddy Garcia, and the one and only Comedy King, Dolphy.

This generation’s version of Kurdapya will see both new and familiar faces from the VAA family of artists.

Fresh from his string of movies launched earlier this year including Spellbound (with Bela Padilla), Martyr or Murderer, and Baby Boy, Baby Girl (with Kylie Verzosa), Ultimate Leading Man Marco Gumabao is part of the cast as Kuring’s love interest, Carlos. On the flipside, comedic actor Nikko Natividad plays Tadeo, the nouveau rich but jologs manliligaw of Daphne. The two actors will definitely bring kilig to the twins’ respective love lives.

Since we’re seeing two sides of Yassi, trouble will also double for her in this series. Led by Ryza Cenon as the young and beautiful gold digger girlfriend of the twins’ father, and by Katya Santos who plays Kuring’s depraved aunt, together they will be the main antagonists in each of the twins’ lives. Together with them are Akihiro Blanco who plays Daphne’s cousin plotting against the family business, and Jela Cuenca as Katya’s daughter who is equally as menacing as her mother.

Fresh faces are also joining the cast, touted as the next generation of Viva’s stars, these young actors are set to debut their acting chops in the comedy series and add to the fun and complications of Kuring’s and Daphne’s lives.

The loveteam of Heart Ryan and Tomas Rodriguez will provide additional kilig to viewers. Coming from their debut film this year, Girlfriend Na Pwede Na, they now take on the role of Kuring’s probinsiyana BFF Trina and Daphne’s cousin Enzo who will eventually fall for Trina. Both Heart and Tomas started out with PPop groups under Viva. Heart is known as a Tiktok celebrity with over 4 million followers and is now expanding her acting capabilities while Tomas is an active member of PPop group, “Alamat,”

Meanwhile, here are our live coverage videos and interviews during the press con. Let's all watch these:

Other new gen young stars to join are the next teen heartthrobs to watch out for. Collectively know as R-Turn, Keagan de Jesus, Charles Law, and Kurt Delos Reyes will endear and entertain viewers as a trio of waiters and cooks that serve at Kuring and Daphne’s usual meeting place. Keagan has recently appeared in “Expensive Candy” while Charles will star in the upcoming VivaOne series, “The Rain in España”. Kurt meanwhile is a certified Tiktok star with over 1.5 million followers.

Completing the cast is a formidable collection of actors and actresses who will definitely bring in the comedy and a bit of drama to a truly exciting storyline.

Candy Pangilinan will play the mother of the twins, Pia, who has a shady past. Lander Vera Perez plays the role of Don Raul who plays the strict CEO father of the twins. They are joined by Juliana Parizcova Segovia who is Kuring’s beki fairy god-ninang and by Jobelyn Manuel who is Daphne’s assistant. Both will be the twins’ enablers in their schemes to switch with each other.

With such a strong cast plus Yassi’s tried and tested acting skills in lighthearted and heavy drama, even in comedy, Kurdapya promises to be a fun-filled family show for everyone to enjoy. Catch the twintastic comedy-serye of the year on TV5 every Saturday 6pm, with catchup episodes on Sari Sari channel every Sunday 8pm.
