"On the Wings of Love" lead stars James Reid and Nadine Lustre had fans, netizens, and even celebrities glued on their TV screen, shrieking in delight as their characters Clark and Leah shared their first real kiss last Thursday (September 17) in an episode dubbed as "The Most Approved Kiss." After the near-kiss of Clark and Leah in the hit primetime series' 'Most Kilig Night Ever' episode last week that had fans hanging and wanting for more, the show finally granted avid viewers' wish to see Clark and Leah kiss not just once, but many consecutive times.
"That was the point of the ‘Most Kilig Night Ever’ episode. It really set up the real thing," explained James in an interview with "TV Patrol."
The episode ruled its timeslot and garnered a national TV rating of 24.8% - its highest rating so far this month and double the rating of its rival program GMA’s “My Faithful Husband” with only 14.6%.
It also broke micro-blogging site Twitter the same night as its official hashtag #OTWOLMostApprovedKiss earned more than two million tweets and became a trending topic worldwide.
Apart from tweets, loyal fans also shared on social media their excitement as they watched the episode. Most of the videos featured the fans shrieking in delight as James and Nadine locked lips.
Celebrities like Bianca Gonzalez, Myrtle Sarrosa, and John Lapus, also couldn’t hide their happiness for Clark and Leah and also posted their kilig reactions.
"On the Wings of Love" is surely taking the country by storm and even abroad where overseas Filipinos are feeling the JaDine fever. James recounted that when they were in London for "ASAP Live in London," fans were calling them by their character names.
“It’s nice to see that even around the world Filipinos watch our show. It’s so unexpected and we are so thankful,” he added.
Next week, fans can look forward to “On The Wings of Love’s” Sweetest Night Ever where James and Nadine’s characters share another heartwarming moment in the rain.
