16 Filipino Love Teams Who Restored Our Faith In Forever

Even just for a while.

Posted on

1. John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo

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.

4. Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera (DongYan)

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.


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!


9. Jericho Rosales and Kristine Hermosa

We've seen them in: Pangako Sa'yo, Ngayong Nandito Ka, Trip

Why we love them: They were the original Yna and Angelo of Pangako Sa'yo. The show lasted two and a half years and aired in different countries like Malaysia and Singapore. International pa yung love nila.


16. Rico Yan and Claudine Barretto

We've seen them in: Got 2 Believe, Dahil Mahal Na Mahal Kita

Why we love them: They had the chemistry, they had a relationship from reel-to-real, they were a typical kilig-inducing couple—until it ended in a tragic way. It wasn't until Claudine recently posted a couple of letters from Rico that we were reminded of their bittersweet relationship. BRB crying sa may corner.
