Kapuso Primetime King Dingdong Dantes is still in Japan with Kapamilya star Anne Curtis for the shooting of Sid and Aya of Viva Films and N2 Productions.
Delightfully, Dong has his syllabus of the master’s degree course he is currently taking in the University of the Philippines Open University.
In between takes, the husband of Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera squeezes in learning. The award-winning actor is currently enrolled under the course of Public Management and he carries his book Public Management 201: Theory and Practice of Public Administration.
In his social media accounts, the course guide and a cup of coffee are posted.
He says in the caption, “Squeezing in some readings while waiting for the camera to grind.
For me, coffee and hard copies are still effective than tablets – the same formula that has helped me survive being a working student from 1998-2014. ”
The actor graduated from Technology Management course at West Negros University in Bacolod City last March 23, 2014.
It was Dingdong’s first time to shoot a film outside the country.
The film was produced by Joyce Bernal Productions for Viva / N2 in the direction of Irene Villamor who also directed Meet Me in St. Gallen that is still playing in theaters.
This is the start of Direk Joyce’s first break in the shooting of teleserye and films. She first wants to concentrate on producing their films in her production and in the Spring Films with Piolo Pascual.
Dong’s caption reads, “Squeezing in some readings while waiting for the camera to grind. For me, coffee and hard copies are still more effective than tablets— the same formula that has helped me survive being a working student from 1998-2014, with literally a long break in between. Now, here I am again, trying to make the most out of this opportunity because I know that I’m always a work in progress.”
