Without a shadow of a doubt, Los Angeles loves Kathryn.
Throughout her career she has always been partnered with Daniel Padilla, and for good reason. KathNiel is easily the top love team in the country with one blockbuster hit after another as well as top-rating teleseryes. Kapamilyas watched them grow individually and together which is why it is no longer a surprise that their fans naturally feel a sense of attachment to them. So, through their many interviews over the years, it has been asked more than once whether they are ready to be paired with someone else. To reassure fans, KathNiel would always respond that it is inevitable, but not until the time is right.
Well, it turns out that the time is already ripe.
Earlier this year, Kathryn and Daniel made waves with “The Hows of Us.” It is the first ever movie to reach the P600M mark in domestic sales. They bested Vice Ganda’s “Gandarrapiddo: The Revenger Squad” and “A Second Chance” from 2015 which starred John Llyod and Bea Alonzo.
This is their most mature movie so far and a lot of the scenes mirrored their own personal experiences as a couple. It was definitely a milestone for the industry and for KathNiel. Less than three months later, however, it was time to move on because Kathryn would be starring in “Three Words to Forever.” This time, without Daniel.
It definitely came as a shock to the KathNiel fans who are not used to seeing the tandem together. Nevertheless, Kapamilyas everywhere were excited to support Kathryn’s project with the Megastar Sharon Cuneta and Richard Gomez.
These photos from the L.A. premier are enough proof. She met with fans to take pictures and sign a few autographs. There was also a short talk before the actual screening. At this point, you can expect to see bigger things from Kath!
