9 Pinoy Love Teams Who Can Star in These Classic Pinoy Film Adaptations
Each generation has its classic movie pairings. In Hollywood, you have Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet in Titanic, or Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge! For us, we have the Gabby-Sharon, the Aga-Lea, and the Juday-Piolo classic tandems. On this list, we try to recall the classics and see which of today's pairings can make the adaptation work.
As a reference, we've only included movies older than 10 years, which in my opinion, is decent enough time for a remake.
James Reid and Nadine Lustre
Remake of: Kailangan Kita (Rory Quintos, 2002)
This Aga Muhlach-Claudine Barretto starrer sees Aga coming back to the Philippines for his wedding. Native lass Claudine gets his attention in days leading to his wedding. With elements of Like Water for Chocolate, this movie captures the perfect sultry slash serious drama foray that we can see JaDine nailing. While the pair has traveled San Francisco to Santorini up to Tokyo in their previous projects, it's high time they have a local backdrop story (set against the majestic Mayon Volcano in Albay).
Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo
Remake of: Hihintayin Kita sa Langit (Carlos Siguion-Reyna, 1991)
This classic stars Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta as lovers from different classes. Probably most known as an adaptation to Charlotte Bronte's Wuthering Heights, it's the perfect time for KathNiel to maintain their status as one of the top premier pairings in the country in this tragic drama. After all, they have proven their chops already from their last offering Barcelona: A Love Untold.
Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano
Remake of: Forevermore (John D. Lazatin, 2002)
Don't get confused, sure LizQuen's first top rating serye was also of the same title, but this Jericho Rosales-Kristine Hermosa 2002 headliner combines the perfect serious and sweet material that we know both Enrique and Liza can ace. Also, if there's one pairing that can nail the sweet atmosphere of the mango-set backdrop of the movie, it's LizQuen's million dollar smile.
Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto
Remake of: Dahil Mahal na Mahal Kita (Wenn Deramas, 1998)
JoshLia already nailed the Got 2 Believe reference in their MMFF hit Vince, Kath, and James. I think it's high time they portray the other side of the reel and real pairing of Rico Yan and Claudine Barretto. In this 1998 hit, Claudine portrays campus hottie resident Mela who charms the pants off boy next door Miguel. How this unlikely pairing becomes so well-liked is one we can see Julia and Joshua as the best fit.
Ivan Dorschner and Barbie Forteza
Remake of: You Are the One (Cathy Garcia-Molina, 2006)
Sure, this upcoming Kapuso pairing is on another network, but we can't see any pairing that makes sense for this remake. In the original Sam Milby and Toni Gonzaga vehicle, Toni plays Sally, bubbly and optimistic until her encounter with Amboy Will, who just wants to movie abroad. The back and forth banter between these two characters is eerily fit to the strength of the new Ivan-Barbie pairing.
Elmo Magalona and Janella Salvador
Remake of: Till There Was You (Joyce Bernal, 2003)
It's a tall order for ElNella (well actually for anybody), to follow the footsteps of this Piolo Pascual and Judy Ann Santos 2003 hit, but we found Janella to capture the light and humorous approach of Juday's candid character in the film. Elmo, on the other hand, can play the dapper and serious Albert to complement Janella's character in it.
McCoy De Leon and Elisse Joson
Remake of: Labs Kita, Okey Ka Lang? (Jerry Lopez-Sineneng, 1998)
Oh yes, it's this iconic Marvin Agustin and Jolina Magdangal (probably now more known as JoLegend Slaydangal) film where the classic line "best friend mo lang ako" line was uttered. The reason why we chose McLisse to remake this one is because a huge part of the film sells the idea of the pairing as best friends first before lovers. And McLisse, based on their PBB stint, is well suited for that. We buy the idea that they can sell the notion of them being friends developed into a romantic pairing.
Edward Barber and Maymay Entrata
Remake of: Kung Ikaw ay Isang Panaginip (Wenn Deramas, 2002)
From one Jolina film to the next one, this 2002 movie had Jolina play a simple lass with big dreams who has a crush on that mestiso toothpaste endorser she sees on the huge billboard. I mean, there are instances where the situation just writes for itself, and if you can't imagine Maymay and Edward as fitting to those characters, well then you're thinking different.
Ruru Madrid and Gabbi Garcia
Remake of: Let the Love Begin (Mac Alejandre, 2005)
Lastly, we have this 2005 Richard Gutierrez and Angel Locsin film which catapulted the pairing as one of the strongest of the previous decade. In the movie, Richard played a janitor who gets the attention of prominent campus crush played by Angel. While these "opposite worlds" have been done a thousand times already, we can still envision a version with GabRu that will offer the same kilig like the original gave us.

LIFE ADVICE YOU NEED TO HEAR WHILE YOURE STILL YOUNG
This blog is dedicated to all teens out there struggling in determining what they really want in their life or if you simply want a glow up. And since were still facing a pandemic, I think this is also a season where everyone is re-thinking about their lives. So, I hope these advices might help you.
Tip #1. TAKE RISK - since most of you are still young, I advice you to take your biggest risk. Whether it may be taking the course you want, a skill you want to acquire or just simply taking the risk to throw away your emotional baggage from your childhood. While you're still young, you have very little to lose. You dont have that much commitments and responsibilities. Because the older you get, the more responsibilities and obligations came. So when they are still not piling up, take the risk! As for me, the biggest risk I took when I was still a teenager is to CUT OFF TOXIC FAMILY TIES.
I may sound rude here but, yeah. I decided to throw away my emotional baggage from my traumatic childhood and cut off some of my family ties and it is completely okay! You dont have to be bothered by whatever they will say. Because at your age, you are already investing on your growth as a person. If you really want to grow, THERE IS NO PERFECT TIME FOR YOU TO TAKE RISK BUT NOW. Because in taking risk you are actually giving yourself a reward of getting something amazing or beyond what you expect you can have. As they say, the bigger the risk, the bigger the reward. Keep in mind that the bigger the risk, the bigger possibility of FAILURE. But that is completely OKAY. Because just like what I said earlier, you are still young. You dont have so much to lose so, dont be afraid to take the risk and then fail. But after failing, learn from it and the more courage you have to take risk the greater the learning, reward or happiness. Ito na nga, how to take risk nga ba? And what are the risk that would actually help me to grow? #
2: VOICE LESSON - dont get me wrong, hindi ito vocalization para sa pagkanta. What I mean is, learn to listen to that VOICE INSIDE YOU. Listen to your heart, to your intuition and to your visions because it will be your GUIDE. Because I realize that as you go along your journey of your life and if you really want to be YOURSELF and be successful in achieving your goals, the only GUIDE that you should follow is your OWN VOICE.
It is okay to take and consider other people's advices but at the end of the day,you should never forget to listen to your own voice. Because that voice is what tells you what you truly want. How would you know that if it is your 'own' voice? Your own voice always comes from your HEART. The voice where YOU and GOD'S voice are one. Because I firmly believe that God knows your heart and that is where he reside. I like journaling because whenever I journal my thought every night and every morning, I feel a dual voice inside my head. Like, it contradicts what the other voice is telling. For example: If we have dreams or goals that puts us so much weight and pressure to the point that it makes you exhausted, STOP. Because it might be a dream or goal of someone else. I believe that your own dreams and goals may be frustrating most of the time, but that frustration has fueling feeling that will always tell you that 'This is the hard way to better so keep going'. Frustration in your own dreams will not make you feel exhausted because achieving a dream itself is a fulfilling feeling.
#3. TAKE ACTION - if you really want something to happen, take action. Dont just sit there and wait things to come your way. Make action or decisions that will take you to where you want to go in your life. Just like what I said in one of my novels that I am writing in wattpad, "There is no such thing as destiny or fate. Because YOU make your OWN life choices." For example, I cannot expect to be a published author if I dont write any novels right? The bottomline here is, if you are not moving forward you are actually moving backward. And it is a sad thing. Life is full of situations where you will be put in the line whether you take courage or just stay where you are. Because GROWING needs consistency in moving forward. So if you dont have to enough courage to take action, your life will always stay the same or worse you will continuously shrink down.
#4. EXPAND YOUR HORIZONS - this means stretching your comfort zone. I watched an anime entitled "Black Clover" there is a captain there where he always tell his subordinates to surpass their limits right, here right now. Going out of our comfort zones are surely scary and uncomfortable. But you have to accept the fact that you cannot stay on the coast forever. You have to change, because the only thing that is constant in this world is change right? Go out of your comfort zones because LIMITS are just in the MIND. There are disabled people who are successful in their own careers. Because the lesson here is, if you hold back there will be no growth. Because GROWTH blooms in DISCOMFORT.
Last, #5. INVEST IN YOURSELF - especially now that you are still young, you should focus on investing on yourself more. Time is your bestfriend at this point of your life. You have so much time to discover things about yourself. I never regret buying and reading books that I never knew will help me later on in dealing life's challenges. You can use that time to read books, gain wisdom, or pick a new skill, improve your talent and learn from your experiences. Keep learning outside your home or your school. Because the real battlefield is OUTSIDE. What you learn in school will only help you in your career but your wisdom and experiences will help you in life or as a person. People who doesnt embrace growth will never succeed in their life. (This is a reflection blog from my 21st birthday last week. I hope you can feature this on your page and I hope it can help others as well. )
Hello! In need to boost these posts and tweets for our jeepney drivers ???? Kindly share + retweet and re-story so a lot of people can see. Thank you so much!

Hello candy-peeps! I just wanted to share what i've been doing this long quarantine period. My father is from Pangasinan and so I grew up going there every year (usually during special occasions like Christmas, New Year, All Saints Day, etc). I've always loved their specialties yet I only get to taste it once or twice.
My father runs a GRAB business in which we have several drivers for it. Yet during this pandemic, our business experienced a big loss and our drivers feared that they won't get to earn enough for their families who are also suffering during these troubling times.
By starting this frozen food business, we were able to earn and also give our drivers a source of income. They accompany my father in going to Pangasinan every week to be able to restock and they also re-sell our products. Its a win-win situation for both of us. I do hope that we'd overcome the problems that our country as a whole and every struggling individual is facing soon and that we'd come out of this better than we were before. #SupportLocal #PilipinasMuna
Hi everyone! I just want to share my first collaboration with my father. I converted two of my digital arts, Oneness and We Got Each Other's Back, into a vase and a bookend. I designed it and he made it into a reality. The Oneness Metal Vase is perfect for dried flowers and or artificial flowers. The We Got Each Other's Back Bookend is made from solid metal in which the cubes can be arranged to the user's liking. Both metal sculptures work as an accent piece that can liven up one's space.

Imagine you are holding a photograph. There, there you are. A 5-year-old you is being carried by her momma and papa while holding your rag dolls. That innocent, charming little girl is looking at you and said, "Where are you now?"
Life is filled with several U-turns and unexpected twists of events and during these times in which silver spoons are nowhere to be found: Our families ensure we still get and experience the best as we survive this pandemic. Here's my song, I wrote back 2 years ago entitled: "Won't Let You Cry" and take time to honor and appreciate our parents as they are the biggest front liners in our lives throughout the years.
If you're still single now, there are probably a a lot of questions running in your head. But being on your own for a long time helps you discover more about yourself. It's more than just freedom or independence. It's facing the world with so much courage. It's trying to make the most of your life without having to depend on someone. It's being happy on your own and loving yourself with all that you are.
We've been chasing love only to realize that it's not gonna work out that way. The right time will come that you will be blessed with the one you deserve. The one who also prayed to be with you. The one who will make you believe in love again. Let life surprise you. Hang in there.
