The series is poised to be a certifiable hit. Even in the run-up to its official debut, “Ang Babae sa Likod ng Face Mask” has been reaping massive online support—garnering over 1.1 million views within 24 hours of its release on Facebook.

To be sure, fans of both Herlene and Joseph are thrilled about the hilarious and kilig moments the show is expected to deliver.

The first episode of the series introduces us to Herlene Budol’s character, Malta. Malta has not been lucky in love because she sees herself as a “hipon”—or someone blessed with a shapely figure but a plain and homely face, something that the sweet and kind Malta is able to concealunder her facemask.

A scene later shows that the bills are piling up and Malta decides to help make ends meet for her family. Meanwhile, viewers are introduced to Sieg, Joseph Marco’s character. Sieg is hurting from the end of another relationship, and is nursing a broken heart.

What will happen when Malta and Sieg first meet? How can Malta help support her mother in these difficult times? Can Sieg move past the pain of heartbreak? What’s in store for the duo will be revealed in the upcoming episodes of “Ang Babae sa Likod ng Face Mask”.
