The dubbing also met with positive reactions from Filipino fans. They openly expressed their satisfaction in seeing the show with a local flavor as Tine and Sarawat converse in Tagalog.
Prior to the pilot episode, #BrightWin got up close and personal with their Filipino fans in the #BrightWin2GetherLive Mediacon held last June 26. Fans were encouraged to Tweet #AskBrightWin2gether and five best Tweets were selected and answered by no other than the lead stars themselves.
The hashtag #BrightWin2GetherLive also topped the Philippine trends. Everyone was hyped up as Bright and Win mentioned that they would like to visit the pristine waters of Boracay and Cebu and get a taste of Filipino dishes such as adobo and lechon.
