In a tweet, Jane had expressed her thanks to her “Darna: The TV Series” costar Joshua for apparently helping her conceal her wardrobe malfunction which had been the real purpose of her going behind him onstage and hugging him from behind. Upon closer inspection of the screenshots, you could see how Jane kept her hand over the right part of her dress.

“Thank you @iamjoshuagarcia for helping me cover my wardrobe malfunction!” Jane said.

Many fans then complimented Joshua for being such a gentleman and expressed their excitement for the upcoming “Darna” series where the two are expected to become onscreen lovers.
