Ginebra San Miguel's 2017 Calendar Girl is new 'Pantasya ng Bayan'

Her name is Kim. No, not the Vietnamese girl in Miss Saigon. She is an upcoming star at the Kapuso network and was recently introduced as Kim Domingo playing the third wheel Agatha Samaniego in the comic soap opera Juan Happy Love Story with Dennis Trillo and Heart Evangelista.
The audience, particularly, fans of Evangelista, thought Domingo a threat to their idol, which, of course, was just a perception as the producers and writers have wittingly put Domingo’s character between Juan (Trillo) and Happy (Heart) to ensure the success of the soap operatic comedy.

It seems the Kapuso network has big plans for Domingo who has recently earned the moniker

“Pantasya ng Bayan” and affirmed by Ginebra San Miguel, Inc. (GSMI) as GSM’s 2017 Calendar Girl in a grand press presentation at Sequoia Hotel in Quezon City.

Domingo is some kind of a hybrid being partly French, which explains her looks and height. She joins popular models and actresses that graced the GSM calendars through the years, including Ellen Adarna (2015), two-time calendar girl Marian Rivera (2009 and 2014), Georgina Wilson (2013), Solenn Heusaff (2012), Anne Curtis (2011), and her predecessor Arci Muñoz (2016).

Domingo said it has always been her dream to be an actress, and now that she is part of Ginebra San Miguel’s prestigious roster of brand ambassadors, she hopes that this would open up more opportunities to let her talent shine.

“Kim definitely personifies our marketing campaign, ‘Ganado Sa Buhay’. She worked her way up to become one of the most recognizable faces in the entertainment industry today. Her story is an inspiration to every hardworking Filipino,” GSM Brand manager Paolo Tupaz said.

“Even when I was younger, I already had specific goals in life; I knew what I wanted to be and what I wanted to accomplish. Being an only child, I also learned to be strong and independent early on. I’m very grateful that my hard work and perseverance are starting to bear fruit now. So for our ka-barangays, I just want to send a message that if we remain strong, focused and ‘Ganado sa Buhay’, we will be able to achieve our goals and dreams,” the upcoming actress said. 

Kim started her showbiz journey when she joined Eat Bulaga’s “Little Miss Philippines” search. Since then, she has joined several other talent reality competitions and landed modeling gigs. She rose to fame with her viral videos on YouTube, lip-syncing “Twerk It Like Miley” and dancing to the “Trumpets” challenge, which got almost two million views.

More than just a pretty face, the fast-rising star is also a girl of many talents. Aside from hosting, dancing, and throwing punch lines in the top-rating gag show Bubble Gang, she is also a recording artist, having just released her debut single, “Know Me” for GMA Records.

GSMI has released five layouts for its 2017 calendar with a “Cheeky and Geeky” theme, showing Doming’s fun and quirky side.

GSMI flagship brand Ginebra San Miguel has been enjoyed by many for over 180 years and remains the no. 1 selling gin in the world, according to leading global drinks journal Drinks International.

Other GSMI products are GSM Blue, GSM Blue Flavors, Ginebra San Miguel Premium Gin, Don Enrique Mixkila, Antonov Vodka, Vino Kulafu and Primera Light Brandy.
