JM De Guzman and Meg Imperial team up for the first time in the special Valentine’s Day episode of “Ipaglaban Mo” airing this Saturday (Feb 14).
On the set, Meg admitted that she was still a bit uncomfortable doing scenes with JM even if they already met before.
“This is our first time to do ‘kilig’ scenes together so I am still adjusting, in a way. We even did scenes where I couldn't look at him straight in the eye but after a couple more takes, things got better,” shared Meg.
When asked if they are willing to become an official love team, both said they are open to the idea. JM shortly quipped, “Why not?”
Despite being romantically linked recently, JM and Meg revealed that they don’t have plans to celebrate the upcoming Valentine’s Day.
“I might just stay at home or maybe work. I’m not sure of my schedule yet,” said Meg.
“I'm hoping that Valentine’s has a plan for me,” playfully answered JM.
Their on-screen chemistry will be put to test this weekend as they play Trish and Eman, lovers who will face the biggest challenge in their relationship.
Trish is a simple girl with a simple dream of marrying a rich, handsome man someday. To realize her dream she would log in online and chat for long hours with various men on the web, pretending to be someone she is not.
One day, she meets Eman on a social media site and the two eventually fall in love. Eman asks Trish’s hand in marriage and the latter immediately says yes. But when they apply for a certificate of no marriage record, the two learn that Trish is already married to another man.
How will Trish win Eman’s trust back? Will Eman believe that Trish is a victim of identity theft? Will they still have their happily ever after?
