THE star of ‘Descendants of the Sun PH’ (DOTS PH) Dingdong Dantes is once again the brand ambassador of pain reliever brand Medicol.

Medicol’s brand manager Lisa Angeli K. De Leon happily welcomes Dingdong back. “The campaign was launched in July and we are exploring projects we can collaborate on to inspire Filipinos to rise above the challenges that are experienced now, especially with the difficulties brought about by the pandemic. We are happy to be working with Dingdong again.”

It was in 2008 when Dingdong first signed up as an endorser of Medicol.

“It is a great privilege to be one of Unilab’s brand ambassadors. I am one with them in working towards a healthier Philippines, one quality medicine at a time. I am also of the strong belief that quality health care must be within reach for Filipinos,” he says.

In 2013, Medicol expanded its offerings and launched the first 400mg ibuprofen softgel in the country which competitors still have not been able to copy.

Meanwhile, apart from being a brand ambassador for Medicol, Dingdong is also busy with other things despite the pandemic. He just finished a 14-day lock-in taping for DOTS PH that is about to return to TV. He also tapes every Sunday for ‘Amazing Earth.’ And, Dingdong sometimes sits on the director’s chair for his wife Marian Rivera’s show, ‘Tadhana’ and other endorsement shoots.

Dingdong is also active in the YesPinoy advocacy where he is the founding chairman, as well as DingDongPH, an online marketplace and delivery app that he just recently launched.

Recently, Dingdong celebrated his 40th birthday, albeit quietly with family.

“The pandemic has been testing my faith and patience. It is challenging me to find ways to better ensure the safety and health of my children, my wife, myself and the people that surround me. But I know that in His perfect time, this too, shall pass.”
