LOOK: Bagets Cast Celebrate Christmas With a Mini Reunion
The gang is back together!
(SPOT.ph) Nothing gets us nostalgic like a good '80s flick, especially when it's a film like Bagets. Originally premiering in 1984, it was one of those movies that defined a generation, with teenage boys all over the country trying their best to imitate the clothing and hairstyles of the film’s stars. The movie centers around five teenage boys in their last year of high school, coping with the ups and downs of adolescence. The sequel, Bagets 2, also massively successful, came out later that same year. Rumors swirled in 2007 that a third installment of the franchise entitled Bagets 3: The Reunion would take place, though the project never pushed through.
So imagine our surprise when several of the film’s cast members reunited for a Christmas dinner, over 30 years after the films premiered. Eula Valdes, Yayo Aguila, Cheska Iñigo, Raymond Lauchengco, Ramon Christopher “Monching” Gutierrez, and Herbert Bautista were all present at the reunion, with many of them sharing the experience on their respective Instagram accounts.
Aga Muhlach, William Martinez, JC Bonnin, and Jobella Salvador were notably absent from the reunion, but even an incomplete cast was enough to get us excited. Iñigo included a touching caption on her Instagram post, saying, “I didn’t have a high school barkada, instead I had these guys. Thank you Lord for sharing them with me. [Thirty four] years and counting…” We know many of you looked at the Bagets cast back then like they were your own friends too. Seeing them together this Christmas season was a gift in itself.
