Love Teams and New Filipino Movies on Netflix
Welcome! Today’s goal is to talk about all of the New Filipino Movies on Netflix and to explain what Love Teams are. If you’re new to watching Filipino movies and dramas, I hope you find this post helpful.
What Are Love Teams?
In the Philippines, love teams are referred to as a popular actor and actress pairing. They are often endorsed as a romantic couple and star in movies and dramas together. It’s normal to see these love teams in many dramas and movies together — often ones with a romantic element. Some also transition from an on screen to off screen romance as well.
In recent years, James Reid and Nadine Lustre are a popular love team, which is stylized as JaDine. They were friends in real life, but didn’t originally get along all that well. They depicted couples in many movies and dramas. While filming On The Wings of Love, these two actually fell in love in real life. The last I read this couple is still going strong. They are my personal favorite love team.
Another popular pairing is Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla. Their love team is stylized as Kathniel. I’ve seen some of their movies, but not too many. As I’m not the most familiar with them, I can’t really comment on their love team. I have enjoyed their movies but not quite as much as some other pairings.
Update: I’ve now seen this pairing in more movies together and this love team is really growing on me. (Favorites are Netflix so far are Can’t Help Falling in Love and Barcelona: A Love Untold. Squee!)
However, I am also a big fan of Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil. They are stylized as LizQuen. I’ve loved them together in multiple movies and dramas. They also have great chemistry together. Liza slipped in a 2018 interview and stated that she’s exclusively dating Enrique. These two definitely have the chemistry, so I wasn’t surprised to hear that they’re dating.
And lastly, another favorite love team of mine is Kim Chiu and Xian Lim. They are known as Jandy/KimXi. I fell in love with these two while watching Must Date The Playboy and Bride for Rent. Lucky for all of us, Bride for Rent is available on Netflix now. Score!
If you’ve been watching Filipino movies and dramas for a long time, it’s lucky you were around to see John Lloyd Cruz with his popular love team partner Bea Alonzo. They’ve been doing movies since the early 2000’s together. I haven’t personally watched any of their work together, so I can’t be a judge of this love team. However, they currently have two movies together on Netflix. I believe their loveteam name is BeLievers.
John also has two dramas starring Sarah Geronimo that have just been added to Netflix. I haven’t seen them together either, but with two movies on Netflix starring these two, I certainly have the opportunity now.
New Filipino Movies on Netflix
The other news I want to share is that Netflix has upped its game and gained license to more Filipino movies. There are a fair bit to choose from and all updates will be added to my Filipino Movies and Dramas on Netflix. I think this is a positive step forward in sharing Filipino content with the rest of the world.
I would love to see Netflix get some full blown teleseryes on it’s site. These dramas are usually over 100 episodes and are roughly 20ish or so odd minutes long. They are a huge investment. I’ve finished a few of them over the years and have loved them. For now, most of the Filipino inventory on Netflix is movies. I’ll be happy to take what I can get, but I can’t say that I wouldn’t want more.
Some of the above mentioned Love Teams have some great Filipino dramas and we’re really missing a large part of Filipino entertainment without. Netflix, please hear my pleas.
Outside of TFC, I don’t believe there are any legal options to watch Filipino content. If you used to watch them on illegal sites, you’ll see there’s been a huge crackdown in the past two or so years. It’s not likely that you’ll find Filipino content easily without a subscription service to watch.
For LizQuen fans, we currently have two movies to choose from:
Popular blogger Cali is hired for a marketing campaign alongside another viral sensation: her ex-boyfriend Gio, who’s intent on winning her back.
While patiently waiting for her boyfriend to come out of his coma, Audrey finds herself falling for the caring and successful Ethan.
For the KathNiel love team, we have three movie options:
Gab is eager to tie the knot with her handsome boyfriend, but there’s a problem, and it’s a doozy: She’s already married to a total stranger.
To make another woman jealous, a campus heartthrob asks a fellow student to be his pretend girlfriend, but fate has other plans for the fake couple.
While pursuing a degree in Spain, an architecture struggling with grief meets a fellow expatriate trying to flee a difficult family life.
For JaDine fans, we have one option. Please note that they are not the main characters of this movie. In fact, they are secondary, but I’ve heard this a good movie. I haven’t personally watched it, but I wanted to point that out.
Finding himself in a desperate situation, undercover agent Emman asks his former best friend, Erika, to join him on a dangerous mission.
We have one current option for the Team Jandy Love Team:
Rocco needs to hire a bride so he can access his trust fund. Rocky desperately needs a job. Their marriage starts out fake, but ends up as much more.
John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo:
Following their storybook wedding, Popoy and Basha find married life — and starting a business together — more challenging than they ever imagined.
The mistress of a wealthy businessman is torn between her loyalty to him and her love for a young architect connected to her in unexpected ways.
And we finish off with John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo:
Laida and Miggy used to be in love, but now they’re forced to work together in a professional capacity — and neither is completely over their past.
Laida and Miggy think they’ve found perfect happiness with each other, until their burgeoning careers force them into a long-distance relationship.
After a woman is very publicly left at the alter, the PR expert hired to fix the situation winds up falling in love with her.
And there you have it. I’ve put together some information regarding Love Teams and New Filipino Movies on Netflix. I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. 2019 is shaping up to be a really good year for International content on Netflix.
