What's the Story?
GINA YEI (Didi Romero) has done it. She's won a scholarship to Instituto Musical del Caribe, a school that will jumpstart her songwriting career. She packs her bags, can-do attitude, and growing Instagram followers, and makes her way to start her journey. But the moment Gina steps on campus, she gains enemies, as well as friends, admirers, and mentors. Can Gina keep up her positive attitude and her musical gifts throughout the chaos, mystery, and confusion of this next step?
Is It Any Good?
It's impossible not to crack a smile at least once throughout this fast-paced, upbeat show. Gina Yei is an incredibly peppy series threaded with positive messages and talk about self-love. The witty, quick dialogue is often comedic. There's no shortage of musical numbers and dance breaks, so younger viewers into music/dance would enjoy this.
