There’s a new love team on our radar and they’re bringing us youthful ‘kilig’ vibes in primetime! We’re talking about Paulo Angeles and Michelle Vito, playing as Gelo and Heidi, in the Kapamilya series Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin. To present the pair’s immense potential, here’s a Toplist showing their natural chemistry and adorable ‘love-hate’ moments in the always trending teleserye.
Gelo and Heidi give a refreshing take on the tried-and-tested rich-girl-meets-poor-boy formula. But their scenes are stuffed with adorable bickering instead of heavy drama, making their tandem easy to the eyes.
He is the less-privileged intelligent houseboy of Ellice (Iza Calzado) and Gabriel (Sam Milby) while she’s the niece of the sought-after Mr. Villarosa. He’s cool and friendly while she’s snobbish. But instead of giving rise to hefty conflict, these contrasts spark more ‘kilig’ encounters, at least for now.It was a case of love at first sight for Gelo when he saw Heidi in the hospital while everyone’s waiting for the arrival of Ellice and Gabriel’s baby. He tried to charm her with his suave ‘hirits’ and irresistible smile but the tactic didn’t work. She simply got annoyed. “The more you hate, the more you love,” he thought.
Nonetheless, he didn’t give up. Thanks to Heidi and Gabriel’s closeness, Gelo had more chances of seeing the pretty girl around. Heidi would often drop by the Villarosa abode.
Heidi remained annoyed by Gelo’s attempt to get her attention until she needed his help with a Geometry homework and quiz. Not only he made an impression about his math genius, he also got to spend time with her. And the best thing was the perfect quiz score paved the way for their friendship. Gelo received a token from Heidi.
Although the bickering didn’t stop, we won’t complain as the ‘love-hate’ moments just add more to the ‘kilig.’ There was loud chemistry when they quietly argued over a “couple” photo posted by Gelo, casting a smile on the eavesdropping Ellice’s face. There was likewise a natural sense of teamwork as they tried to outdo each other in making Baby Hope giggle. On top of that, Heidi’s organic reactions complement Gelo’s smooth pick-up lines.
To add a little spice, though, there was a scene wherein Heidi denied Gelo in front of a friend as he dropped by her school bringing her favorite street food. And adding a little more conflict was Heidi’s mom, Sonya (Desiree del Valle), belittling Gelo’s social status and demanding him to stay away from her daughter.
