Actor Rodjun Cruz probably has one of the best childhood experiences ever being a young host at ‘90s kid-oriented show “5 and Up.” Now, he looks back at those glory days and wishes for a complete reunion with the entire “5 and Up” gang.
“5 and Up” is a tele-magazine show for children and pre-teens that ran from 1992 to 2002.
On his Instagram account on Tuesday, he posted then and now photos of his “5 and Up” crew. He wrote, “Kakamiss sobra! Next time dapat complete na tayo. Love you guys.”
His younger brother Rayver Cruz was also among the children crew of the program. Of course, his look back at his early days in showbiz would not be complete without a photo with “5 and Up” producer, veteran broadcast journalist Cheche Lazaro.
Among the notable former hosts of the show were Atom Araullo, now a veteran broadcast journalist and documentarist, Maxine Magalona now an actress, Chynna Ortaleza, also an actress, and Rayver and Rodjun Cruz, who have continuously gone on with their showbiz careers until this day.
