We've seen them in: One More Chance, Miss You Like Crazy, Close To You

Why we love them: They brought the most iconic pairing, Popoy and Basha, to life—characters that'll be remembered for a very long time. They've been paired for over a decade now and they're one of those love teams that made us feel kilig even though they're not dating in real life.

2. Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla (KathNiel)

We've seen them in: Got To Believe, She's Dating The Gangster, Pangako Sa'yo (Remake), Crazy Beautiful You

3. James Reid and Nadine Lustre (JaDine)

We've seen them in: On The Wings Of Love, Talk Back And You're Dead, Diary Ng Panget

Why we love them: They have undeniable chemistry, and they can still stand out by themselves outside of their love team. Plus, they're both really good singers.

We've seen them in: Philippine adaptation of Marimar, Dyesebel, You To Me Are Everything

Why we love them: They're the epitome of a reel-to-real loveteam. Though they got off to a rocky start, they're now ~living happily ever after~ with their baby daughter Letizia.

5. Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil (LizQuen)

ABS CBN
ABS CBN

We've seen them in: Forevermore, Just The Way You Are, Everyday I Love You

6. Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza aka Yaya Dub (AlDub)

We've seen them in: Eat Bulaga's Kalyeserye, My Bebe Love

Why we love them: The thrill of them only seeing each other on-screen (and not in real life at first) worked so incredibly well with fans that it got them an average of 20 million tweets per week. Their comedic touch and unscripted dialogue helped a lot. BONGGA!

We've seen them in: Paano Na Kaya, 'Till My Heartaches End, Sana Maulit Muli

8. Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta (CharDawn)

We've seen them in: The Love Affair, You've My Home, Hihintayin Kita Sa Langit

Why we love them: They are loveteam-turned-lovers-turned-ex-lovers-turned-really-good-friends. Kapagod naman, pero at least that's another kind of "forever." ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

9. Jericho Rosales and Kristine Hermosa
