Filipinos are suckers for kilig moments, so it’s no surprise that love teams almost always make it big in the local entertainment industry. At some point in your life, you’ve probably gushed over the classic powerhouse duos—JaDine, LizQuen, and KathNiel to name a few. Although these love teams will remain in our hearts forever, the fresh generation of young stars have inevitably introduced us to new pairings that show a lot of promise. Call us cheesy, but these Gen Z love teams possess that je ne sais quoi that always leaves us wanting more.
If you’re curious about these budding stars, keep reading to see the five tandems we’ve fallen in love with lately:
1. KDLex: KD Estrada and Alexa Ilacad
Without a doubt, KDLex is the breakthrough love team of 2022. The former Pinoy Big Brother housemates just share a natural chemistry that has captivated hundreds of fans nationwide despite their initial sibling-like bond. Following a successful fan conference last February, KD and Alexa are now preparing to officially debut as a love team in Dreamscape Entertainment’s Run to Me.
2. DonBelle: Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano
If you've watched He's Into Her or Love Is Color Blind before, you'd easily understand why DonBelle is dubbed as the "new-gen phenomenal love team." Some even call them the next KathNiel, but it's clear that Donny and Belle have already made a name for themselves in the industry. Watch them in the upcoming season of He's Into Her and see for yourself!
3. LoiNie: Ronnie Alonte and Loisa Andalio
Of course, our list wouldn't be complete without this real-to-reel couple. Ronnie and Loisa have been officially together for over five years now, so it feels all the more special when we spot them on the big screen together. LoiNie made our hearts flutter in The General's Daughter and Unloving U, so we have no doubts that their upcoming series Love in 40 Days will do just the same.
4. Team Jolly: Allen Ansay and Sofia Pablo
Unlike most young love teams today, Team Jolly actually started on social media. While the two teen stars simply enjoyed making TikTok videos together as friends, talks of an official showbiz collaboration started when their cute posts immediately went viral. Consequently, they were formally launched as a love team in Prima Donnas and are now poised to topbill another romance series called Raya Sirena.
5. MavLine: Mavy Legaspi and Kyline Alcantara
Thanks to their electric performance in I Left My Heart in Sorsogon, Mavy and Kyline have effortlessly won over the hearts of many curious onlookers. The pair is also known for sharing the sweetest moments off screen, from their adorable Instagram posts to their kilig-inducing travel vlogs. As eagle-eyed fans continue to speculate about their official relationship status, we'll be patiently waiting for their next showbiz venture!
