In a recent interview, based on the article in PEP, the Kapuso actor was asked about his decision to go for Good Boy. He revealed that it is because the supporting character is far from the character that he did in his previous project.

Yung character ni Nam Do San (male lead) but Davidson siya rito sa Start-Up Philippines has the same character journey as my character noong past soap ko, e,” Alden Richards.

He also said that it was the decision of the team to give him the said role. The Kapuso actor explained that his character in The World Between Us was a successful but it is very similar to the character of the male lead in Start-Up PH, which will be portrayed by Jeric Gonzales.

Pero yung journey niya kasi, kumbaga kung yung role ni Nam Do San yung kukunin ko, parang same lang. Similar. Very similar,” Alden said.

He also assured the viewers that although the story is similar to the K-drama, elements that on Pinoys have will be featured. “May twist siya and yung palaman niya is very Filipino,” the actor said adding that the audience will definitely see this when they air.

Meanwhile, Alden Richards is set to do a series of shows in the U.S. this coming September. He will bring his ForwARd charity concert in the States that will help more send more students to school. For many years, this has been Alden’s charitable endeavor and he intended to help more people through his AR Foundation.
