Yes I also have those moments in me where I became a super fan of some celebrities. Growing up, I love Leonardo Di Caprio more so when his breakthrough movie the Titanic was shown. Believe me, I watched it in DVD’s almost everytime I got to have the chance to watched it. Then after that almost all of his movie I got to watch them all in cinemas or in DVD’s and then again watch them in HBO if it is show there.
Recently, the breakthrough of Maine Mendoza and Alden Richards came and I am just one of those who tweets everyday just to talk about them and thier segment in EAT BULAGA (Philippine Noon Time Variety Show).
The discovery of this accidental love team came about on the first shooting day of Ms Maine Mendoza where she blushes when she saw Alden Richards in the screen.
At that time on, the split screen drama and love team has finally born. Everybody has shudders when both of them appears on camera including myself.
Why is the split screen relatable? I’ve asked that question myself. There’s no physical contact and yet I or everybody can relate. And so I thought nowadays, most or alot of Filipino’s are working abroad and most of the time we are apart from our love ones and we can only be with them through skyping and or a social media video calling app that could be the reason why the split screen become suddenly a magnet to the viewers. (I could be wrong though, thats just a thought).
As the story progresses, one of the most touching and tear jerking scene is when they are about to meet but suddenly they missed because apparently they were caught by Lola Nidora and blocked their only passage for them to see each other.
That moment when you are about to hug and embrace and feel the love of your life but something happens and you failed. That moment when timing was not just right for you to be with the love of your life or to have something you intensely desire to have but you simply cant just have it.
The story goes further more and finaly the Tamang Panahon (Right Time) came and everybody was just so blown away and wanted to be part of that moment. The joy it brings when the right time has come to have it all. That time when the serries has blown away the biggest arena in the Philippines!
Over a million fans came along and be that monumental moment.
That was the grandest ever made in the Philippine showbizness for a noontime show. Since day 1, ALDUB hashtag has been in twitter top trend list in the Philippines and abroad for quite sometime.
The ever supportive fan rocks the cinema as well when their first movie was launched.
Their first movie has surpassed the first day gross and was the highest so far in the Philippine cinema amounting to more than 21 million pesos on its first day.
