Kapamilya Spotlight LoiNie

Over the years, we’ve seen a lot of artists being paired together. Some were teamed up for the first time in teleseryes and movies, while others are just shipped by their fans after seeing their unmistakable chemistry in their media appearances. And over time, some of these tandems went on to be in a relationship off-screen as well.

However, it's rare for loveteams to be formed upon becoming real-life couples – and that’s the case for Love In 40 Days lead stars Ronnie Alonte and Loisa Andalio. Those who have been following their journey as individual artists and as an on-screen pair know that their relationship started through their stint in It’s Showtime, wherein he was among the handsome and talented dudes of Hashtags, while she used to be one of the gorgeous members of GirlTrends. Their awesome friendship eventually blossomed into a beautiful romantic relationship that is admired by many, thus the “LoiNie” tandem was born.

They had their television debut as a reel-and-real-life couple through Wansapanataym Presents Gelli In A Bottle in 2018, wherein she played as titular character, while he was her love interest named Robin.

It was succeeded by their remarkable stint in the “Jersey” episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya the following year, in which he portrayed then-University of the Philippines (UP) basketball varsity player Paul Desiderio, while she was her courtside reporter-girlfriend Agatha Uvero. It was also in 2019 when they landed their first-ever teleserye together via The General’s Daughter, playing their role of friends-turned-couple Ivan and Claire.

Aside from these Kapamilya shows, LoiNie also starred in the iWantTFC Originals series “Unloving U” released last year and in “The Goodbye Girl” early this year. 

And now, they’re about to make us fall in love with their tandem again as they headline the upcoming primetime series Love In 40 Days, wherein they’ll show us the true meaning of love and forgiveness through their characters Jane and Edward.
