Before the birth of your favorite love teams, these pairings happened first. Can you believe how far they've come already? Even though these actors and actresses haven't stayed together after their last projects as onscreen couples, we're glad that they've found their places in the industry. Take a trip down memory lane with us and reminisce about your old OTPs.
1 Albie Casiño and Kathryn Bernardo
Where we first saw them: Mara Clara
Before teen king Daniel Padilla, the teen queen was first paired with Albie for the remake of the '90s TV series. They were supposed to appear together in the movie Way Back Home alongside Julia Montes and AJ Perez, but he was pulled out of the project and was replaced by Enrique Gil. AJ was also replaced later on by Sam Concepcion due to AJ's untimely death.
2 Enrique Gil and Julia Montes
Where we first saw them: Way Back Home
Speaking of Enrique Gil and Julia Montes, these two remain as one of the most beloved pairings of this generation. We first saw them together in Way Back Home, but they were paired with different actors back then. Their team proved to be a hit when they were paired in projects like The Reunion and Muling Buksan Ang Puso. Today, Enrique is paired with Liza Soberano while Julia works with Edgar Allan Guzman and Anjo Damiles on the TV show Doble Kara.
3 AJ Muhlach and Nadine Lustre
Where we first saw them : Bagets: Just Got Lucky
Before JaDine came to existence and the On the Wings of Love fever happened, Nadine was paired with AJ. We saw them together first in the teen-oriented show on TV5 where they starred alongside Shy Carlos, Meg Imperial, and other artists from the network. Later on, these two were paired on P.S. I Love You, which starred Dina Bonnevie and Gabby Concepcion.
4 Elmo Magalona and Julie Anne San Jose
Where we first saw them: Party Pilipinas
We noticed how good Elmo and Julie Anne looked together when they performed for the very first time on GMA's Sunday noontime variety show. They performed a couple of covers after that and proved that theirs is a chemistry we'll love, performing covers of songs like "Love the Way You Lie," "She Will Be Loved," and "Girl Be Mine." This pair also starred in the movie Just One Summer in 2012. Julie Anne is now paired with Jake Vargas on Pepito Manaloto while Elmo was last paired with real-life girlfriend Janine Gutierrez on More Than Words.
5 James Reid and Devon Seron
Where we first saw them: Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Clash
Before JaDine, James Reid started out as one of the teen housemates on Pinoy Big Brother's teen edition. Televiewers saw his chemistry with fellow housemate Devon, so when they came out of the house, the two were paired for projects like Shoutout! and Good Vibes.
6 Sam Concepcion and Julia Barretto
Where we first saw them: Walang Kapalit
Yup, these two cuties first appeared on the 2007 drama series which starred Claudine Barretto and Piolo Pascual. Although they didn't stay in the show for long, Sam and Julia certainly caught everyone's attention. Fast forward to 2014, the two child actors were reunited in the show Mirabella where they were in a love triangle with Enrique Gil.
