Never underestimate the power of kilig. It’s one of the sweetest feelings we live for. That feeling when your kid gives you a birthday card? That feeling when your boss gives you a thumbs up? That feeling when your special someone confesses their feelings for you? Kilig. Indeed, it’s got us through tough times.
And with everything going on around the world right now, yearning for a dose of kilig shouldn’t be so bad. To help relieve you from a bit of stress, iWant is offering over thousands of titles you can watch for FREE, including romantic flicks to spark those kilig feels.
1. The Hows of Us
Starring Kathryn Bernardo and her reel- and real-life partner, Daniel Padilla, the record-breaking movie has got us swooning for days! It follows the story of George, an aspiring medical student and Primo, a musician trying to make it big in the industry. What happens when one of them rises through the ranks of life, and the other one gets left behind? That’s when the conflict starts.
Thanks to the couple’s acting chops and the film’s downright relatable narrative, the movie was able to touch thousands of hearts—raking in over PHP 805 million since its release!
2. One More Chance
Admit it—you’ve probably watched (and cried over) One More Chance for at least three times. And after 13 years, we still can’t get over the feels! Thanks to Popoy (John Lloyd Cruz) and Basha (Bea Alonzo), the ‘3-month-rule’ became a valid expectation, lyrics served as monthsary gifts, and denying someone of crispy chicken skin became an inside joke among fans.
If you need to relieve your stress by having a good cry, re-watch this classic breakup film! While you’re at it, check out A Second Chance on iWant, too, which focuses on Popoy and Basha as a married couple.
3. Alone / Together
Tin (Liza Soberano), an ambitious art studies major from UP, falls in love with Raf (Enrique Gil), a dedicated pre-med student from UST. Together, they build their dreams to be a renowned art curator and a distinguished doctor. Five years after they’ve broken up, they meet again.
If you’re struggling with #adulting and you kinda miss your precious college days (kaway-kaway sa Lantern Parade regulars) and your idealistic younger self, this one’s for you!
4. Labs Kita... Okey Ka Lang?
“Oh yes. Kaibigan mo ako. Kaibigan mo lang ako. And I’m so stupid to make the biggest mistake of falling in love with my bestfriend!” Does that line ring a bell? If so, we’re pretty sure you’re one of the thousands of fans who rooted for Bujoy (Jolina Magdangal) and Ned (Marvin Agustin) in this classic Pinoy fave!
And if you’re looking for a sign to re-watch this film, this is it—it’s time to satisfy your ‘90s nostalgia fix!
5. Starting Over Again
Oh, to be young and in love—with your college professor! Here, Toni Gonzaga plays Ginny, a young woman who falls for her former history teacher, Marco (Piolo Pascual). After years of being together, Ginny realizes their need to grow up and pursue different dreams, making them break up and go their separate ways. Years after, they cross paths and rekindle their lost love. This time around, however, Ginny finds Marco in a relationship with a new woman in his life, Patti (Iza Calzado).
If you deserve more explanations and more acceptable reasons to watch this, see the film for yourself—and witness Toni and Piolo’s undeniable chemistry!
In these trying times, kilig isn’t just a fluttering feeling—it, in itself, is a flicker of hope. And if that kind of hope is what will keep us going even just for a little while, then let those kilig vibes flow.
