One of the newest love teams that has certainly made everyone kilig with their overflowing chemistry despite being paired for the first time is DonBelle -- Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano for their series He's Into Her.
Directed by Chad Vidanes, He’s Into Her is an adaptation of one of the bestselling Wattpad novels written by Maxine Lat Calibuso (Maxinejiji). It shows the journey of young adults, and also tackles love, family, and friendship. But specifically, it revolves around Maxpein (Belle), a transferee student in the private school where Deib (Donny) and his gang dominate. At first, their characters would clash because of the differences in their personalities, until they get closer and eventually see something special about each other in the latter part of the story.
In DonBelle’s exclusive interview with TV Patrol, the 23-year-old actor divulged that the whole cast treat each other like family. Moreover, in the virtual media conference of He’s Into Her, both Donny and Belle were straightforward in saying that they are really a match.
They also did not deny that at first, the situation was awkward since it was their first time to be onscreen partners. But as they did more shoots in their lock-in tapings, they felt more comfortable with each other. “Una shy siya. Sa una siyempre ‘di naman close bilang magkatrabaho. Through time I saw that very energetic rin siya. May ibang side si Belle na outgoing,” Donny said.
Belle, on the other hand, finds him an ideal guy because he’s gentleman and very caring. “Ideal guy si Donny and si Deib kasi ‘pag mas nakilala mo siya, you know na he is a gentleman and caring and supportive of what we do,” Belle said.
While they aren’t an item yet, it seemed that the kilig between them is already real as Belle wasn’t able to help herself from blushing when asked if she’s comfortable with Donny.
“Okay naman po kami, comfortable naman po. Mas lalo na po no’ng nag-shoot na kami, mas bumaba ‘yong walls namin, mas naging open po kami to each other. Buong cast po naging close sa isa’t isa,” she related. When asked if her loveteam partner is already courting her, she laughingly replied, “’Wag muna, bawal pa”.
Whatever the status of their relationship is at present, we couldn’t help but be excited about what the future holds for the DonBelle tandem. Based on their sweet moments captured in the photos in this gallery, we know that they are indeed the newest loveteam to watch out for!
