Have you ever noticed that there are things that go extremely well together? We have a whole list of strange food pares that actually work. like mangga and bagging, and puto and dinuguan. Perfect pares aren’t just limited to food, though. In the Pinoy world, these perfect matches can extend to all sorts of things, including the world of celebrities. Here are 13 unforgettable Pinoy love teams that we simply cannot get over, even if some of them are no longer love teams today.
13 Unforgettable Pinoy Love Teams that We Can’t Get Over
13. Bobby Andrews and Angelu de Leon
Who could forget Wacks and Peachy from TGIS, one of the most nakakakilig love teams of the 90s alongside Jolina and Marvin… (but we’ll get to Jolina and Marvin later). People loved Bobby and Angelu because of how relatable their characters were and how cute they looked together, and to this day, people still refer to their old hair in photos as the Bobby Andrews haircut.
12. Lea Salonga and Aga Muhlach
Although best-known for being a judge in The Voice PH now, Lea Salonga was once known as Aga Muhlach’s ka-loveteam in the movies Bakit Labis Kitang Mahal and Sana Maulit Muli. In fact, people loved them so much, Lea and Aga recently talked about reuniting for yet another. Now who wouldn’t want to see that?
11. Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes
Now notorious for closing down Edsa for their big ‘Royal Wedding’, couple Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes actually started out as a love team in the highest-rated primetime TV show at the time, Marimar, launching their careers as GMA’s Primetime King and Queen. The best thing about them, though? They proved that love can transcend from reeltime to real life and end with a happily ever after.
10. Claudine Barretto and Rico Yan
Rico and Claudine were one of the It couples back in the 90s, stealing everyone’s hearts in projects like Dahil Mahal na Mahal Kita, Got to Believe, Flames: The Movie, Mula Sa Puso and Saan Ka Man Naroroon. When they became a couple in real life, fans went crazy and happily supported the perfect couple. The world was shocked in 2002 when Rico Yan passed away and our hearts go to Claudine after recent news broke that she still gets utterly depressed during his death anniversary. RiP Rico Yan!
9. Nora Aunor and Tirso Cruz III
Nora Aunor and Tirso Cruz III, aka Guy and Pip, are one of the most popular Pinoy love teams of all time. Aside from their unforgettable style, what really made this love team stand out is their unconventional pairing which fans absolutely loved in movies like Young Girl, Guy and Pip and Pinakasalan ko ang Aking Kapatid. They event did several music albums together, including Dream Come True and Mahal.
8. Carmina Villaroel and Rustom Padilla
Speaking of unconventional pairings (if you think about it now, anyways :p), the Carmina Villaroel-Rustom Padilla love team of the 90s was a winning tandem. This love team started in the movie Hindi Magbabago and eventually blossomed into a real life marriage… until they separated in 1997… and Rustom came out of the closet and became Binibining Gandanghari not too long ago.
7. Judy Ann Santos and Piolo Pascual
While Judy Ann had a great love team going with Wowie de Guzman in the 90s, it is her love team with Piolo Pascual that really made a hit with the Pinoys. Chalk it up to Piolo’s good looks or their on-screen chemistry in Bakit Di Totohanin, but whatever it is, Juday and Piolo is one love team Pinoys cannot get over.
6. Kim Chiu and Xian Lim
Pinoys have been a fan of the Kim Chiu-Xian Lim love team ever since their hit series My Binondo Girl in 2011, followed by another series Ina, Kapatid, Anak. Fans also loved them in their movies Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo and Bride for Rent, so it is understandable that their hearts broke last year when it was announced that Kim would no longer be paired with Xian in her new TV project Ikaw Lamang. Are you on Team Kim-Xian or Team Kimerald?
5. Jolina Magdangal and Marvin Agustin
Jolina and Marvin first teamed upon 1996 in the TV series Gimik. Since then, however, they have starred in numerous unforgettable series and movies, including Labs Ko si Babe, Flames: The Movie, and Hey Babe. What fans love about Jolina and Marvin, though, is that they keep reuniting to bring the kilig back into their lives, such as when they starred in I Luv NY together in 2006 and in this year’s Flordeliza.
4. Nadine Lustre and James Reid
It started with the novel-turned-movie Diary ng Panget. James Reid was already a celebrity who joined PBB and this movie was his comeback as an artist with newcomer Nadine Lustre. Fans were instantly attracted to their awesome love team, even coining a love team name for them, Jadine.
3. Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla
Daniel Padilla is the son of Rommel Padilla and Karla Estrada, two famou artists from the 80s, while Kathryn Bernardo started in Going Bulilit. While their love team began with Princess and I, it is their newer movies Got to Believe and Crazy Beautiful You that really made the world kilig. Today, they are amping up their performances by taking on more mature roles and their fans are loving them for it.
2. Kristine Hermosa and Jericho Rosales
Although Kristine Hermosa and Jericho Rosales are now married to their respective spouses, Oyo Boy Sotto and Kim Jones, fans still cannot get over the Kristine-Jericho love team. Not only were they one of the most attractive couples on-screen, they were also one of the most kilig-inducing ones. Don’t forget to watch out for the Pangako Sayo remake starring Kathniel!
1. Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz
I only have three words for you: One More Chance.
So, there you have it: our unforgettable 13 Pinoy love teams we cannot get over in terms of kilig factor and chemistry. You gotta admit: may mga bagay talaga na mas masarap kapag pares, right?
Perfect pares transcends Pinoy love teams, too, though. Datu Puti is one particular brand that proves how well two things can go together. Just take their suka and toyo as an example. While it goes without saying that their suka tastes good on its own and their toyo tastes good on its own, the both of them taste even better when put together.
Aside from that, Datu Puti has also featured 3 real life ‘perfect pares’ couples recently which showcase how perfect two people can be for each other:
3. Daniel and Regine
As the saying goes, “The more you hate, the more you love”. And that is exactly the case with Daniel and Regine, who started out teasing each other as friends and eventually blossomed into something more. Apparently, teasing and courtship make a perfect match.
2. Joven and Guilaine
Proving that even fairy tales and seemingly cliche movie story lines can come true (She’s All That, anyone?), Joven and Guilaine proved that heart throbs and girl-next-doors can be perfect for each other in real life, too.
1. Timmy and Glo
Not only are Timmy and Glo inspiring because they are still together despite their old age, they are also inspiring because they proved that it is possible for two seeming relationship breakers – time and distance – to be the perfect pares if true love is brought into the mix.
Now you can see that despite the odds, love can truly prevail as long as you find the perfect match for you. Do you know of any other real life couples that are the perfect pares? Share them with us. We’d love to hear their stories. 🙂
