The first kiss is one of the most anticipated milestones for teleserye love teams. It’s so powerful that fans freak out, sometimes whilst breaking the internet, like what happened when these Kapamilya love teams agreed to share their first on-screen smooch.
The ‘hopia’ feeling became history for KathNiel fans when Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla shared their first TV kiss in the 2015 remake of Pangako Sa’Yo. After a romantic exchange, Angelo (Daniel) cupped Yna (Kathryn)’s face to land his lips on hers. And although the cameras switched angle just in time for the golden moment, fans were sure it really happened and it was more than enough to create a social media storm.
Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil played college students in love in their film “Alone Together” (2019), thus their first kiss was reminiscent of your unforgettable campus romance. So in their teleserye Make It With You (2020),” where they played adult workers and entrepreneurs, LizQuen was more than ready for a more intimate scene. Adding more to the magic is the choice of location, the beautiful country of Croatia.
In 2012, Coco Martin and Julia Montes painted an unforgettable story of eternal love in Walang Hanggan and it would be a waste not to seal Katerina (Julia) and Daniel (Coco)’s wedding vows with a kiss. So as they finally reunite in the currently airing action-drama series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, fans keep their fingers crossed for another CocoJul smooch.
Coco and Yassi Pressman also melted hearts with their mega-‘kilig’ story as Cardo and Alyana in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. And there’s nothing like a first kiss under a sophisticated glass dome after an exchange of “I dos.” The smiles and embrace that followed had every CocoYass shipper floating in kilig.
How do you measure the power of a kiss? As Nadine Lustre and James Reid could attest to, it can smash the internet with a whopping two million mentions. That’s what happened when they shared their first ‘realest’ kiss as Leah and Clark in the Most Approved Kiss episode of On The Wings of Love (2015). The whole world stopped for every JaDine devotee as Leah ran to Clark to announce that she’s been granted a green card, so hubby sweetened the news even more with an intimate kiss. Clark and Leah had an earlier kissing scene when they were still faking their feelings for the sake of Leah’s green card.
Erich Gonzales and Enchong Dee’s friendship started in Katorse (2009) where they also had their first kiss as a love team. In the story, Erich’s character, Nene, went through a myriad of ordeals as a young mom until she got her much-deserved happy ending in Jojo (Enchong). And through the years, EnRich kisses went from sweet to sultry.
Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson’s first TV kiss was sweetness overload. It happened in the Pinoy adaptation of the hit K-drama My Girl in 2008, back when KimErald was the hottest love team in tinseltown. Julian (Gerald) kissed Jasmine (Kim) earnestly while the night skies watched them. Prior to that, they also shared a sweet kissing scene in their film “I’ve Fallen For You.”
My Binondo Girl (2009) birthed what fans would call ‘KimXi’ or the tandem of Kim Chiu and Xian Lim. And their love story turning from reel to real will convince you to believe in serendipity. ICYDK, Kim was supposed to end up with another leading man in the series but the KimXi magic was undeniable it turned everything around. And it made Jade (Kim) and Andy (Xian)’s wedding kiss more memorable.
Richard Yap and Jodi Sta. Maria made hearts – and social media trends – raced when they shared their first on-screen kiss in the mega-hit daytime series Be Careful with My Heart (2012). Maya (Jodi) thought the night would end like a typical one but Sir Chief (Richard) made it magical with a kiss. Maya was surprised and fans almost cried in happiness.
