Before we’re able to see our favorite Kapamilya team-ups walk down the red carpet hand-in-hand this year, let’s look back at how the guys get us all thrilled on how they got the coveted 'yes' of their girls to be their dates to the 10th Star Magic Ball last year. These handsome lads devised creative ways on wooing their gorgeous muses, from traditional to innovative. Here are some of them:
McCoy De Leon and Elisse Joson
The rising matinee idol was indeed thankful to his It’s Showtime and their avid shippers for helping him out propose to his “princess” on national television. He didn’t only get the sweet ‘yes’ of Elisse, to be her date to the 10th Star Magic Ball but also of her Mommy Cristine as well, when he asked her permission on air.
Elmo Magalona and Janella Salvador
A famous maxim says “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”. But in ElNella’s case, it was the opposite. With a box of pizza and sweet notes from Elmo, Janella agreed to be his date to last year’s Star Magic Ball. Of course, who doesn’t love food, especially if it’s pizza?
Xian Lim and Kim Chiu
From top-grossing films and high-rating teleseryes, their tandem was indeed one of the most successful and most revered in the local entertainment scene. On and off-cam, Xian never failed to show his sweetness and admiration for our Chinita Princess through his explosive and kilig-overload Star Magic Ball date proposals annually! Just like what he did last year, he surprised Kim by hanging a huge heart-filled “will you be my date?” banner at her residence’s gate. And of course, she said yes.
Bailey May and Ylona Garcia
This equally talented and good-looking pair has been delighting our hearts whenever we see them together. In their second attendance in the glitzy affair in 2016, the young heartthrob took to Instagram to ask Ylona to be his muse and posted a photo of them sitting side by side during PUSH Awards with the caption “will you be my date?”. She so loved that proposal and said yes.
Jairus Aquino and Sharlene San Pedro
Since we’re living in the era when most of our activities involve the Internet, the young actor took advantage of it by using the file-sharing application AirDrop to send his arty calligraphy of the precious question “will you be my date” written multiple times and in different colors for the previous year’s Star Magic Ball. Apart from that, Sharlene was treated with a cup of her favorite tea. How could she say no to that?
We are all excited to witness how this year’s batch of spellbinding couples would leave us breathless at the Star Magic Ball this Saturday, September 30 at the Makati Shangri-La. Indeed, it will truly be the most unforgettable for them and for us all awashed with kilig.
