In the past eight months, Huwag Kang Mangamba has surely filled our primetime viewing with inspiration and moving scenes. But since it involved loveteams and teen characters, it has also brought kilig vibes to its avid viewers and fervent fans of the actors.
And one of the pairs that have been making us kilig na kilig is Joy and Rafa, played by Francine Diaz and Kyle Echarri. Now that the well-loved series is on its “The Healing Finale,” let’s look back on 10 of their sweet moments together in this episode of Kapamilya Toplist!
Just like other romances we know, or perhaps we’ve gone through, theirs started off not quite well as it was a case of hate at first sight after she initially found him arrogant on the very first time they met. But their chance encounters have allowed them to get to know each other deeper and they eventually became close friends.
As they get to see and bond with each other almost everyday, Rafa begins to develop romantic feelings towards her, which he’s able to express through “palipad-hangin” or giving away hints and staring at her from afar. Besides, he made sure to come to her rescue everytime she needed help or someone to lean on, as well as show how willing he is to do everything for her when she’s in trouble.
Rafa may have done a lot of “da moves” or admirable things for Joy, but she seems to not have gotten the signal as she keeps on shushing it everytime he brings up that topic. She told him off that she’s not keen on entering into a relationship since it’s not her top priority and she doesn’t want to get hurt as well. Furthermore, the failed marriage of her parents also made her lose her faith in love.
Even though she only sees him as a friend at present, ardent shippers of Rafa and Joy are hopeful that she’s going to reciprocate his feelings as we witnessed how concerned she was of him whenever he’s having a hard time.
Are Joy and Rafa going to take their friendship to the next level? Let’s find out by not missing the remaining episodes of Huwag Kang Mangamba, weeknights on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live and A2Z Channel 11.
