In tonight’s Magpakailanman, Aljur Abrenica takes on his biggest acting challenge as he portrays the life of independent actor Kristoffer King, a one-time macho dancer who thought his life was going to turn around when he got a break in the showbiz industry.

But life had other plans for Kristoffer. After discovering that his son had a condition known as Hunter’s Syndrome, Kristoffer faced the facts that life was just about to get even harder for him. And as the showbiz break he was banking on continued to be elusive, and with a non-existent diploma to help him find work, Kristoffer had to be more creative in procuring money for his family.

Kristoffer didn’t want to hurt other people, but he didn’t mind hurting his pride. And so began his decent into the world of discreet male prostitution–all for the chance to save his son.

Bayarang Adonis: the Kristoffer King Story” also features top-caliber acting from Max Collins, Rina Reyes, Philip Lazaro, Joel Camacho, and Marc Justine Alvarez; under the direction of the esteemed Maryo J. delos Reyes, with a script by Paul Sta. Ana, and the research of Vienuel Ello.
