Teens are easy to spill the beans. Spring Films (the makers of "Kimmy Dora" series) is at it again bringing "kilig" to the screen with "Relaks It's Just Pag-ibig" distributed by Star Cinema starring Inigo Pascual, Julian Estrada and Sofia Andres. Shot in Leyte for a year (before and after Typhoon Yolanda) with the famous San Juanico bridge, the movie is a tale of one girl's quest for sweet, young true love with the newest heartthrobs sure to send fans screaming once again. I've joined fellow bloggers and media at the grand press conference of "Relaks It's Just Pag-ibig" yesterday at Bella Ibarra Events Place in Quezon City getting to know the cast: Julian Estrada, Ericka Villongco, Sofia Andres and Inigo Pascual joined by Direk Antoinette Jadaone and Direk Irene Villamor.
The event featured the live performance of the theme song sung by Moira (famous for singing the Hooray for Today McDonald's TVC and The Voice Philippines) managed by Cornerstone Talent Management. I've seen the trailer of the film when I watched "The Trial" and it was one of the movies my students are waiting for this year. Julian Estrada, Star Magic Circle Batch 2012 we saw in "She's Dating the Gangster" by Kathniel will be playing Kiko, the bestfriend of Sari (Sofia Andres) in the story.
Piolo Pascual's 17 year-old Inigo is Josh in the movie, joining Sari's quest for true love inspired by the characters of Jose Rizal's novel. Inigo was thankful of the opportunity just like Sofia and Julian but what set the media cheering was his honesty revealing his secret crush on Sofia right after the latter said she likes Inigo more than a friend. It was those moments of spontaneous responses by Julian Estrada, Sofia Andres, Inigo Pascual that I also felt my own memories of romance. Another Cornerstone Talent, Ericka Villongco as Cupcake in the movie will be one of the third party to create twists in the story. We've known Ericka Villongco from the acoustic duo Krissy and Ericka and it's the first time I'll be watching her onscreen not singing. "Relaks It's Just Pag-ibig" also stars Smokey Manaloto, Earl Ignacio, Pia Magalona with the special participation of Alessandra De Rossi. The cast will be promoting the movie at SM Novaliches on Nov. 2 and SM Fairview on Nov. 9 so don't miss them and this romantic movie showing on November 12!
