Melissa Ricks looked back on that time she got sandwiched between two of the most “kilig” love teams of the early 2000s as her Instagram #ThrowbackThursday entry, March 8.
That’s Sandara “Dara” Park and Hero Angeles doing an angry face on one side, with Joross Gamboa pretending to choke Roxanne Guinoo on the other.
All five were finalists from the first batch of the reality talent show “Star Circle Quest” which premiered in 2004.
More than a decade has passed, but the memories from that time in her life still feels “fresh” for Melissa.
“14 years ago I met these wacky people... Just like it was yesterday,” she wrote on the caption.
Melissa and Roxanne have taken a time off from showbiz to be full-time moms, while Joross remains to be active in showbiz.
His most recent portrayal, a werewolf warrior on “La Luna Sangre” and a husband who left his wife for another man in the blockbuster film “Ang Dalawang Mrs Reyes”. He is now also married with two kids.
Dara, of course, has moved on to become a global popstar as part of the K-pop girl group 2NE1, which unfortunately, disbanded in 2016.
Hero took a hiatus from the spotlight and got into the field of arts. But he recently returned to acting for a heartwarming episode of “Maalaala Mo Kaya” playing opposite Alex Gonzaga last December.
