GMA airs a brand new episode of “Magpakailanman” featuring the life story of viral dancer, DJ, and choreographer DJ Loonyo.
DJ Loonyo, or Rhemuel Lunio, was born and raised in Cagayan De Oro. He started dancing jazz in high school, but eventually grew to love the urban dance style of hip-hop. He also trained under some of the country’s dance champions like Philippine Allstars and Rockstars.
DJ Loonyo formed his own dance group called Rock*Well. Their dance challenge videos became viral online and it wasn’t long before they gained popularity on social media.
But behind his entertaining moves and millions of views, who is DJ Loonyo?
“I felt very honored to have my story featured in their show because through this opportunity and blessing, I can be able to share more to the people and really connect with them. It is a true privilege for me to show them what I’ve been through, the struggles, the wins, the losses, the process, and the faith I had with me,” he shared.
Portraying DJ Loonyo is Jak Roberto. Joining him in the episode are Liezel Lopez, Lovely Rivero, and Jong Cuenco.
Jak said that he felt inspired with DJ Loonyo’s determination and driven attitude, “Bilib ako sa pagiging determinado niya sa lahat ng bagay, yung pagiging driven niya, at kung paano niya hinarap ang lahat ng pagsubok. Alam naman natin na ang pagiging dancer sa umpisa, hindi talaga ganun kalaki yung kita hanggang sa nakarating siya sa China, naging kilala siya sa pagsasayaw sa Facebook at TikTok at pag-choreograph ng mga sayaw. Dapat matutunan ng mga tao sa istorya niya na sana huwag tayo agad manghusga ng kapwa. Hindi kasi natin alam kung ano yung pinagdaraanan ng bawat isa sa atin.”
The episode “Dance King ng Quarantine: The DJ Loonyo Story,” under the direction of Zig Dulay, will air this Saturday in “Magpakailanman” on GMA-7.
