02/19/2020
by MNL48 Philippines

Tension-sion-sion-sion-sion, tension max!

The long wait is finally over as the Philippine idol group MNL48 finally dropped their newest, fun and high-energetic fifth single High Tension music video today, February 19th, 2020 on their official YouTube channel.


‘High Tension’ – featuring MNL48 Coleen, Kay, Alice, Rans, Laney, Yzabel, Dian, Aly, Sela, Abby, Sheki, Cole, Jamie, Belle, Yssa, and center girl Gabb – along with its coupling songs ‘Green Flash’ and ‘1! 2! 3! 4! Yoroshiku!’is MNL48’s fifth single that was released last November 1st during the Coslandia event. They are the Tagalized versions of the same titles of AKB48’s 46th major single released in 2016.


Before the official release of the music video, MNL48 surprised the fans by dropping the official teaser last February 9 on the official Youtube page of the idol group .The official teaser showcased another side of the girls; serving great visuals and aesthetic looks through fierce and feisty styles with stunning black, white, and silver outfits. It sure left everyone with mixed emotions as they have shared their different theories and conspiracies on the comment section about the music video.


The ‘High Tension’ music video is full of symbolisms and representation of MNL48’s victories throughout their journey. Director Miko Pelino shared the concept behind the official music video, “Concept is overcoming problems and stress from everyday life. For the video, we used symbolisms like black balloons to represent these problems. The girls overcome these obstacles by facing them head on, hence the tough vibe, sticking together and having fun.”

When asked about how MNL48’s music video differs from other sister groups’, he added, “The biggest difference from the High Tension music videos of their sister groups is that they won’t be wearing their MNL48 uniforms. And the location represents the Philippines.”


As the center of High Tension, MNL48 Gabb expressed how grateful she was about the opportunity given to her, “Hanggang ngayon po di ako makapaniwala na ako ‘yung pipiliin nila maging center ng fifth single which is the ‘High Tension’ po. To be honest, marami po talagang deserving sa spot na center kaya masasabi ko po na I’m blessed because lahat-lahat po ng paghihirap ko ay nag-pay off kaya nakaka-overwhelm po sobra.”

She also shared her overall experience and confessed about the black balloon secret, “Sobrang saya po ng filming ng music video kasi iba po ‘yung concept na gusto i-aim ng director and about po doon sa balloon, makikita niyo po na ako lang ‘yung hindi nagpaputok ng lobo kasi takot po ako. Takot po ako sa putok ng lobo pero sobrang ganda po kasi maraming scenes, maraming shots and sobrang ganda po namin lahat.”

by MNL48 Philippines

Aside from music, TV shows and movies, the Philippine idol group MNL48 is set to conquer the bigger stage of the musical entertainment as MNL48 Abby, Belle and Brei were officially announced to portray the well-known ‘barkada’ (characters) from the ABS-CBN’s TV series turned musical ‘Tabing Ilog the Musical’ last February 06, 2020 at the ABS-CBN Dolphy Theater.


As the event officially revealed the casts for the musical, MNL48 Abby and MNL48 Belle as ‘George’ (originally played by Jodi Sta. Maria) and MNL48 Brei as the new character ‘Sammy’, alongside with their co-actors from ABS-CBN’s Pinoy Big Brother, Star Hunt artists, as well as film and theater actors like Agot Isidro, Gab Pangilinan, Vino Manalot, Paolo O’hara and others, opened the press conference by performing a musical snippet from their show, ‘Tabing Ilog the Musical.’

Truth be told, MNL48 Brei confessed that she hasn’t watched any theater musical and this will be her first time, “Never pa po ako nakapanood ng musical theater pero sobrang nae-excite po ako nung nalaman ko po na nakapasok dito tsaka malaking adjustment din po para sa’kin kahit na po gustong-gusto ko ‘yung pag-kanta kasi hindi po ako sanay sa malalaking movement ‘yun po ‘yung kinakatakot ko kasi hindi po ako malaki pero sobrang excited po ako na gawin ‘to kasama sila”.


One of the wishes from her bucket list has been marked as MNL48 Belle shared that being in a musical is her dream, “Sobrang inspiring po na ma-experience ‘yung theater and isa po ito sa mga dream ko before and I’m so overwhelmed para po maka-pasok dito”. Indeed, musical is way different from MNL48’s nature, but MNL48 Abby expressed that even though musical is very challenging, they are striving hard to prove that they can do more, “Challenging siya kasi as an MNL48 member po, nagpe-perform po kami and hindi bago sa amin ang pag-sayaw at ang pag-kanta po and medyo kinakabahan kami ngayon pero andito po kami para gawin ‘yung aming goal na maipakita na ang MNL48 member po ay may mga kaya pang gawin”.


Tabing Ilog the Musical, a stage adaptation of the ABS-CBN’s teen drama series ‘Tabing Ilog’ that depicts romance, friendship and facing real life social issues, retells the story of the wellloved series with a modern and innovative take directed by Topper Fabregas, written by Jade Castro and musical direction by Vincent de Jesus with their creative team.
