One of the shows we’re looking forward to seeing is Gaya sa Pelikula, a BL series helmed by Juan Miguel Severo.
Now, the show revealed the two leads in a short video and let’s be honest, kinilig kami.
Watch it below:

Gaya sa Pelikula will star Ian Pangilinan as Vlad and Paolo Pangilinan as Karl. Severo said on Twitter, “Hoy, chineck namin ‘yan, hindi ‘yan magpinsan” [“Hey, we checked that. They’re not cousins.”]
Boys’ love is genre of romance that follows the relationship of two boys. Strictly speaking, the genre is made by women for an audience of women, but it has since branched out to include male creators and viewers. It has become more popular in recent months due to Asian shows like 2gether: The Series.
Severo announced Gaya sa Pelikula last April, when he shared his pitch experience and his plans for the show. He said, “At the height of the success of 2gether The Series and other Asian Boys Love content, I pitched my pilot of my own BL series to a studio in hopes of getting it greenlit so that we, too, can have more gay stories told by gay people. And guys, we got it. Gaya sa Pelikula (Like in the Movies) will soon be a reality.”
The series will be directed by JP Habac, who also directed I’m Drunk, I Love You and Sakaling Maging Tayo.
