Most Popular Loveteams in Philippine Entertainment Industry
We had an abundant supply of “kilig” thanks to the following love teams that we see on our television. Unlike K-drama couples that we choose because of their tv series that is most appealing to us, in the Philippines these love teams are not actually base on just one tv dramas or movies but their popularity as one. Some of them had been working together for many years and maintain their ranking on top. There are also who started as onscreen couples and have their happy ending in real-life.
In addition, there are love teams that fans believe are in a secret relationship although confirming it won’t actually affect their popularity but rather boost it for as long as they are in a relationship with their half. Well, the most important thing to tackle now is how they managed to stay on top and how they change the lives of their fans.
So get ready! Here are the Philippines Most Popular Love Teams! Enjoy!
10. Julia Barreto and Iñigo Pascual
The newest loveteam of ABS-CBN which was introduced to the public through Wansapanataym episode “Wish Upon a Lusis.” They also appeared in the movie Para Sa Mga Hopeless Romantic together with Jadine. They are currently playing the lead role of the melodrama “And I Love You So.”
What is more exciting on these two is that they both came from well-known celebrity families. Iñigo is the son of award-winning actor Piolo Pascual while Julia comes from the famous clan of Barreto’s. In terms of compatibility, they look good to each other. Moreover, both are good-looking which makes them perfect as a new onscreen couple.
9. Bianca Umali and Miguel Tanfelix
Of course, I also include Bianca and Miguel Tanfelix. They are also teens but you can expect a great chemistry between the two of them. I had observed Miguel’s transformation since the first time he appeared on tv via Starstruck Kids. I once wished that he will make a good couple in the future with fellow starstruck survivor Sam Bumatay but Sam is not active on showbiz today.
But with Bianca, I regain my hopes that the management can produce another lovable loveteam on tv. They are set to appear in a new romance drama “Wish I May” by 2016.
8. Nash Aguas and Sharlene San Pedro
Probably, you are asking why I include Nashlene on my list. To be honest I am a solid Nashlene fan since they became part of kiddie show “Goin Bulilit”. I am still hoping and wishing that one day, the management will hear “us” fans and will give them a project.
What I actually like with Nashlene is that they have the chemistry and history. They are compatible and look good together. In addition, they’ve been working together since their childhood but sadly, in the present they were paired with other celebrities. But guess what? Whenever they have a scene on Luv U, I feel “kilig” and giggles! I promise you, I am not a teenager anymore but I really like them and they complete my day.
7. Coco Martin and Julia Montes
Another loveteam that we have on our list is Coco and Julia. Their 14-years age gap is just a number as fans giggle when they saw these celebrities on the screen. Their great chemistry in the tv series “Walang Hanggan” is undeniable.
Coco and Julia first worked together in the teleserye “Walang Hanggan”. Honestly, they make a great couple even with or without the camera as they are really perfect for each other. Even if they are now paired with different celebrities, fans are always wishing for them a happy ending and another tv series together. It is actually rumored that they are in a relationship although it is not confirmed by both parties. Let’s party guys if we will receive any confirmation from Coco and Julia this 2016!
6. Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes
Of course we should not forget Dongyan. They are one of the most bankable, popular and successful loveteam in the Philippines that lead into a happy ending. They first worked together in the Filipino adaptation of “Marimar” which is the first major role of Marian. The success of the said tv series led into producing another tv series and movies for Dongyan. For many years, their loveteam remains strong after all the controversies linked to Dingdong’s past relationship.
And when they confirm that they are in a relationship, fans became more supportive of the two celebrities. The next confirmation of their relationship is just like a fairytale. Dongyan married last year and have their first cutie and beautiful baby this year. They are actually a perfect couple that we only read on fairytales. They both remain active in showbiz.
5. Kim Chiu and Xian Lim
Kim Chiu is the most successful and popular housemate of Pinoy Big Brother. She was paired with her co-housemate Gerald Anderson. No offense to Kimxi fans, but actually Kimerald was one of the best loveteam that I will always cherish and will never be forgotten by fans. Well, let’s move on cause next year will be 2016 and another journey for our idol Kim Chiu.
After Kim and Gerald parted ways, Kim had been paired to different actors and the most popular and remains popular until this day is Kimxi. They first worked in a lead role of My Girl, a Filipino version of the korean drama of the same name. Since then, they have been doing many tv series, movies and even commercial together. And their movies are also box-office hit. The two of them had also received different media awards for both tv and movies they’ve worked together.
4. Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil
Before they become known as Lizquen both Liza and Enrique appeared in minor roles on teleseryes and movies. Liza is known for being the third party of Kathniel in the drama Got To Believe. After playing minor roles, she received her first major project in the drama Forevermore playing the lead role together with Enrique Gil.
Lizquen’s first drama became a hit and very popular in the Philippine television. Their loveteam is considered as the Breakthrough Love Team on Philippine primetime television by Star Cinema and ABS-CBN. Due to the success of the said drama, they worked again in a movie Just The Way You Are and Everyday I Love You.
They are set to play the lead role of a new tv series “Dolce Amore”.
3. James Reid and Nadine Lustre
Both James and Nadine were previously paired with different celebrities but none of them received the popularity that Jadine has right now. The two of them became popular after playing the lead role of the movie Diary Ng Panget 2014. The film was a box-office hit with a total earning of at least 120 million pesos during its 4-week run.
Due to DNP's success, they also starred again in another movie Talk Back And You’re Dead. Since then, they have starred in different shows and dramas until they signed a two-year contract with ABS-CBN. As of this time, Jadine is popularly known to the viewers as Leah Olivar and Clark Medina in the romantic-comedy drama On The Wings Of Love. OTWOL is very popular drama in the country and highly recommended by viewers as it is different from a typical Filipino teleserye. So if you are a K-drama fan or like rom-com then this drama is for you.
2. Maine Mendoza and Alden Richards
This loveteam is widely known as Aldub. For just a short period of time since they have been discovered accidentally on Eat Bulaga, they rose to fame and have been doing many advertisements together and individually. They are also set to appear in a movie this year which is an official entry for MMFF 2015.
Unlike other loveteams on television, theirs was accidental. At that time, Maine also known as Yaya Dub was not actually a famous celebrity. She is just a simple girl who became known as Dubsmash Queen. Eat Bulaga the longest-running noontime show in the country contacted Maine for a role one of the programs segment. And it becomes the key of discovering new loveteam that is very natural. They are also known worldwide because of their active supporters on social media. They are always trending in twitter and have received their Philippine Walk of Fame in Eastwood City (similar to Hollywood’s Walk of Fame).
1. Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla
Before the success of Kathniel, Kathryn Bernadro had been paired with different actors. She had worked with Makisig Morales in Super Inggo. And in her breakthrough role in the teleserye Mara Clara, she had worked with Albie Casiño as her love interest.

But a scandal (related to Albie) broke up in the entertainment industry which made the management choose the cast again.
This time newbie actor Daniel Padilla filled the character of Albie on the said show. Then it was the beginning of the popularity of Kathniel. Since 2011 Kathniel had been casted in different teleseryes and movies in the lead role. Although they also have bashers on social media’s but still their loveteam is one of a kind and stays strong.
