The Philippines as a viewing public is quite invested on following tandems and love teams on screen. It is quite evident on how movie goers flock to the cinemas every time one of the biggest production houses like Star Cinema would launch a movie of some of the popular loveteams.
Nowadays, the television scene is populated numerous loveteams who have their own group of fans and supporters. We have even provided these loveteams with monikers derived from the combination of their names. There’s JoshLia, LizQuen, KathNiel, JaDine, and a lot more. But even before these current love teams blossomed into the hearts of movie goers, a lot of other teams came before them.
We all know that Piolo Pascual has had a long time tandem with Queen of Soap Opera, Judy Ann Santos. But because of his undeniable charm and charisma, he has also been paired with several other actresses. Along the names that pop up are Bea Alonzo, Toni Gonzaga, Claudine Barretto, and of course, Asia’s Songbird herself, Regine Velasquez.
Piolo and Regine were such an unexpected team up, yet were one of the most effective pairs on screen. One of their most memorable performances was in Maalaala Mo Kaya’s Lobo episode. The pair also had a huge movie back in 2007 entitled Paano Kita Iibigin which was a success in the box office.
Now that Regine Velasquez has signed a contract with ABS-CBN and is now back to her home network, a lot of people are asking if she would be doing a movie with Piolo Pascual in a reunion project. This was one of the hottest questions during the press conference of Regine’s official contract signing.
Piolo Pascual shared his thoughts on the idea of a reunion project, and according to him he has been waiting for this in years. “Ilang taon ko nang hinihintay to, finally. I’ve worked with Reg and she’s one of the nicest and kindest people in the industry. In fact one of the greatest. So we’re just really to have her on board, and I hope marami tayong magawa with her sa ABS-CBN.”
Regine Velasquez also shared the same sentiments as she was actually quoted saying she would like to do another MMK episode with Piolo and the crowd just went wild with this statement.
As for us viewers, we’re just excited on what shows Regine will be part of, and for sure we’ll support her all the way.
