"Әкетай"/DREAM DAD in Kazakhstan: Who Will Be The Cute One?

I'm not really attracted by the plot of "Dream Dad". Neither by the main  cast.  Its showing in Kazakhstan therefore piqued my curiosity: I'm using it as my petri dish for another of my pseudo-anthropological studies. Just recently, star  power was once again proven  in Kazakhstan, especially among the young demographics who went in droves to join the various fan clubs established at the Russian Facebook, Vkontakte (VK) for the Pinoy teleserye "Men Sagan Gashykpyn" (Forevermore), where  Enrique Gil & Liza Soberano shone brighter than the stars of the other foreign telenovelas shown simultaneously in Kazakhstan. The Philippines is getting well-known for its cute actors since the discovery by the Asiatic film-loving world of "Diary Ng Panget" of James Reid and "She's Dating The Gangster" of Daniel Padilla last year. They confirmed that once again with the emergence now of Enrique Gil. With the news that another Pinoy teleserye is forthcoming, the automatic question was who will be the cute one this time around. For "Dream Dad", as can be noticed in their VK page (click here), the eyes are on Teejay Marquez, they practically ignore Zanjoe Marudo but fill with comments (notice the heart icons) on  the posts on Teejay Marquez . For example:

красавчик is Russian for 'handsome'. Kazakhs are bilingual like Filipinos, they mix Russian & Kazakh, like Taglish.
