Aiko and Wendell previously worked in an ABS-CBN early prime-time series, Wildflower.

In a report published by Manila Standard, Aiko shared that she issued an apology to ABS-CBN for declining a role in the upcoming series Sandugo because she was committed to helping her partner Subic Mayor Jay Khonghun on his election campaign.
