‘Kimmy Dora’ faces new challenges

IN 2010, Joyce Bernal and Chris Martinez’s “Kimmy Dora” reconfigured the star system when it became a big hit. It also turned Eugene Domingo, who played the twins, Kimmy and Dora, into a star.

Director Bernal thought one movie was enough, but people kept asking for a sequel. She shares, “Sa sequel, hindi puwedeng pareho lang or less than the original. It should offer something new.”


In “Kimmy Dora & the Temple of Kyeme,” the twins join their father (Ariel Ureta) on a trip to Korea, his homeland, where one of them has to marry a member of a Sang clan to fulfil a promise made by Ureta. The sisters refuse since they’re in love with their respective beaus—portrayed by Dingdong Dantes and Zanjoe Marudo!

The biggest challenge in filming the “Kimmy Dora” sequel was surviving the bitter cold in the mountains of Korea. Eugene relates, “We shot there at the peak of winter. It wasn’t easy because I had to do the scenes twice since I play twins in it. Gusto kong maiyak sa hirap at pagod!”

The horror element has been incorporated into the story, and a lot of celebrities will be playing cameo roles.

Neuschwanstein Fairy Tale Castle

Neuschwanstein castle is one of the most visited and certainly most photographed castles in the world. It was built in the 19th century by Ludwig II, King of Bavaria since 1864. The castle is located very close to the village of Hohenschwangau, about 20 minute walk by foot. Guided tours take about 35 minutes, and you will have to walk 170 steps up and down. The 15 rooms you see on the tour show astonishing craftsmanship and richness of detail. The woodcarvings in King Ludwig’s bedroom took 14 carpenters 4 1/2 years to complete. Walt Disney was inspired to design Cinderella’s castle in Disneyland after Neuschwanstein visit.
The castle is open daily April to October, 8am – 5pm, November to March 9am – 3pm. You are not allowed to take photographs or videotape the inside of the castle. Ticket prices run 12 eur regular / 8 eur reduced per person. ( children and young people under 18 are free )
