Fresh from their dance and song training for the musical series “Lyric and Beat,” Seth Fedelin and Andrea Brillantes opened the episode of “Kilig Match” with their version of “Paru-Paro G.” And throughout the show, they didn’t shy away from sharing their honest ‘feelings’ with solid SethDrea shippers.
“Kilig Match'' is the third phase of ABS-CBN and ABS-CBN Foundation’s fundraising drive for survivors of Super Typhoon Odette. To make the night more entertaining, the featured artists took on fun challenges and answered intriguing questions for every target amount of diamonds donated to live streaming app Kumu.
Seth and Andrea’s love team is going strong after almost three years. “Masaya,” is how they described their hearts. Asked what they learned from each other through the years, Seth expressed admiration for Andrea’s passion in their craft. In turn, Andrea thanked Seth for helping her break down her walls. She opened up about having trust issues before but Seth taught her to let people in.
Although Valentine’s Day will fall on their taping day, we are sure Seth will do his best to make it extra special. Andrea said her ideal date is stargazing in Antipolo, to which Seth reacted, “Kahit saang lupalop pa ng mundo.”
In a “shout out” segment, Andrea thanked her ‘Ali’ for never giving up on their tandem, “Naging matatag ka para sa atin. Hindi ka napagod.” Meanwhile, Seth asked Andrea to always choose to be happy and take care of herself.
Because that’s how they are behind the cameras, “Obligasyon din namin to take care of each other,” said Andrea. They look after each other’s needs. Andrea would even do Seth’s makeup when needed.
Nothing has changed in Seth and Andrea’s dynamics. They still make plans and dream together. For instance, Seth is motivated to also build his dream house after Andrea moved into her new house last year.
It went a little more heartwarming when the pair exchanged promises. Seth vowed to always stay the same and achieve their dreams together, “Kung paano mo ako nakilala, hindi ‘yun magbabago. At promise, tutuparin ko ‘yung mga pangarap ko gaya ng lagi mong sinasabi sa akin. Tutuparin ko ‘to, kakayanin ko, parehas nating matutupad.”
Andrea also promised to value their friendship more than anything else, “Nandito lang ako. Pwede kang mag-message sa akin anytime, tawagan ako anytime. Hindi lang naman tayo love team, magkaibigan talaga tayo. Kung kailangan mo lagi ng tulong, nandito ako. Hindi magbabago ‘yung pagsasamahan natin. Promise ko din na tutulungan pa rin kita hangga’t sa hahayaan mo ako.”
Besides their promises to each other, SethDrea made fans ‘kilig’ with their honest answers of the “20 Questions” Challenge. In the game, Seth mentioned that being a good daughter is Andrea’s most attractive trait. For her, it’s his being kind to ordinary people. She loves how he treats restaurant staff with respect every time they dine out. She also loves his funny ways “pero minsan naiinis din ako.”
For Seth, Andrea is most beautiful when she smiles “tapos alam mong nagpapalambing.” He thinks her eyes and eyebrows are the most attractive parts of her body. For Andrea, Seth’s eyes are his prettiest body parts as well, and she’s been so vocal about it since 2019.
His first impression of her is that she’s ‘mataray’ while she saw him as shy. The last time Seth felt ‘kilig’ is during the interview, “Kasi sa lahat ng pinagdaanan naming dalawa, ito pa rin ‘yun.” Seth also admitted that he already cried over Andrea. The sweetest gesture he did in their lock-in taping was decorating Andrea’s room with balloons and a banner that says ‘Happy to work with you again.’ And the sweetest gift he gave, according to Andrea, is a bunch of special hand-written messages put in a bottle. Meanwhile, Seth revealed that the sweetest lock-in surprise of Andrea was staying up until 6am to finish a graffiti art for him.
Seth said he does everything to soothe their ‘tampuhan.’ Andrea, in turn, appreciates all his effort no matter how small, like when Seth visits and surprises her with street food.
Seth compared Andrea to adobo “kasi matoyo” while she likened him to vegetables “kasi kailangan natin ‘yun.” Their dream destination is Hawaii, where they’re supposed to travel to and celebrate Andrea’s 18th birthday last year. Siargao is also in the travel bucket list.
The most memorable date for SethDrea is June 23. It’s when they prayed together in a church after the blessing of Seth’s new car. They sat outside the church, under the trees, dreaming together. They promised to go back to the same spot every year, which they actually did for the last two years.
The beloved pair also took on the “Compatibility” Challenge where they had similar answers in almost all questions. They picked night over day, hugs over kisses, and calls over text. Meanwhile, Seth chose flowers while Andrea went for chocolates.
SethDrea will also make you go ‘aww’ as they exchange heartfelt ‘thank you’ messages five times. At one point, Seth told Andrea, “Thank you dahil tinanggap mo ako. Tinanggap mo ako kahit gusto ko lang naka-tsinelas at naka-shorts ako.”
He also thanked her for adding color to his life, “Hindi lang masaya, mahirap, nakakaiyak, minsan hindi mo alam kung ano gagawin mo. Pero ibig sabihin n’un na-experience ko lahat ng pwede ma-experience. Na-experience ko malungkot, thank you. Na-experience ko masaktan, thank you. Na-experience ko na din maging masaya, thank you. Marami. Binigyan mo ng kulay, thank you.”
Andrea replied, “Thank you kasi hindi ako tiningnan kung paano ako tingnan ng iba.”
For the ultimate challenge, Seth and Andrea revealed the meaning behind their matching tattoos – a tiny alien design on the outer wrist. They got it in 2020 together with their ear piercings.
According to Seth, it symbolizes their ‘own world’ where they just understand each other. “May sarili kaming mundo. Nagkakasundo kami sa mga bagay-bagay, pagkain, everything. May sarili kaming mundo then, nag-isip kami ng something na magre-remind sa amin n’un. Naisip namin itong alien.”
SethDrea will keep their promise to conquer the world together with their legions of supporters.
