Rainbow Prince is a musical Filipino (Pinoy) boys' love (BL) series. It is the story of Prince Zeyn, a young and audacious prince who is destined for a path filled with adventure, soul searching, and true love. His journey leads to magical moments, new relationships, and the most challenging decision of his life -- the decision of his heart over his duty as the future king of Zurbania. Prince Zeyn has to differentiate his reality from fantasy. What is more important, his responsibility to rule a nation or his true heart's desires? Can he find a middle ground or will he be forced to make the ultimate decision? (Sources: Oxin Films Facebook Account; Rainbow Prince The Series Facebook Account) Edit Translation

So bad it is hilarious

This drama is so bad, so bad, so bad...

I am pretty sure the casting of Price Zayne went;

Ok line up

Take of your shirts

Smile

Ready set go, strip...

Fastest wins...

Some people had great singing voices
Some people had ok acting skills

Only one person in the whole drama had both... and that was probably Mikey. I am pretty sure about 90% of the laughter in the drama was real and not acting, out of embarrassment... Like are you kidding me you expect me to say this with a straight face...

The humour dirty and low... The quality of the music varies but is hilarious at times.

The sound awful, the filming awful, the dog adorable... the people adorable... the characters highly lovable... I may actually miss them all... And I hardly ever miss any characters... And the budget for bananas probably huge...

To sum it up this is not for everyone but I enjoyed it in all its terrible everything and may actually rewatch an episode or two now and then ...

Also people, it is hot in the Philippines!

Talk about melodrama prince.

If you love awkward acting, fairytale like drama, and GAY, then this one’s perfect for you!

When it was initially announced that Oxin Films’ next production was a musical drama entitled “Rainbow Prince,” it sort of left a lot expecting something particularly gay, specially after My Day the series which was particularly extravagant in its own right and was pretty gay.

Most of the cast unfortunately suffers from awkward acting, though some may argue that this can be brought upon by bad direction. Well, if My Day was any indication, we really shouldn’t expect top notch acting from Oxin Films productions. It’s fun at best, cringe at worst.

The story was fairly predictable; Oxin Films loves melodrama. Prince runs away from evil uncle trying to steal the throne and finds himself in a foreign country and falls in love with a local. Great. But a lot of times, the littlest of things are made so awkward, specially with the awkward acting or strange storylines. LIKE the part where Mikey is enraged at Prince Zeyn for lying to him, not like he’s a royal prince trying to hide his identity to save his own life. Talk about good god, get a grip, BOY! And that climax? So underwhelming, it should be illegal. BUT the fact that everything is just so gay makes it worth while. I guess. Happily ever after, anyone?

The music was alright. Nothing groundbreaking, but it sure added the magical element to the story. Sometimes the second hand embarrassment of them just bursting into song is just unbearable, and I’m a big musical theater fan. But most of the songs were pretty meh which really reflects my gripe with Oxin Films.

Oxin Films seems to aim high by smothering a project with an arguably bigger budget than its contemporaries, but always falls short. Like it’s trying so hard to compensate for something with “bigger is better,” but the choices and execution always end up far from perfect in the process. Though, excessive is a word I’d describe Oxin Films productions, and I do hope that in their future projects, they’d do better from directing and acting to better production, Oxin Films, in my opinion, has such potential, and I can’t wait to see it.

P.S. I get that they come from a country names Zurbania, but what’s with the addiction to the letter Z? I get creative freedom, but can you get any tackier. The production and acting already left so much to be desired, but come on. I mean: Prince Zeyn? Prince Zafar? King Zahir? Queen Zara? DON’T get me started on the prince and his cousin ZEYN and MALIK?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME! But I do love that the cousins are both GAY! YAY! Woo!

P.P.S. the actor for Prince Malik, Yani de Dios, is the kuya (older brother) of SB19’s Justin de Dios. So if you’re a PPop fan, maybe you’ll love that fact. :)
