Must Be . . . Love is about the two young boy and girl as childhood best friends Pachot and Ivan. Kathryn plays Patchot, the tomboyish best friend of Ivan (Daniel Padilla), who grows up in a family of men. Boyish as Patchot may be, she has a secret crush on Ivan but pushes aside her feelings for the sake of their friendship. It is only after Ivan becomes her cousin's boyfriend does Patchot again acknowledge what she feels and tries to see if she does have a chance with the guy whom she's loved for the longest time.
Last Monday, (March 4) we enjoyed talking with Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, Director Dado Lumibao and writer Ms. Melai Monge who appeared during the blogger's conference held for their upcoming movie, Must Be Love. They candidly answered the questions on their personal feelings about the movie , work, friendships and relationships
Kathryn relate to the role of Patchot. "Kabaliktaran po kasi ako ni Patchot, lumaki po ako sa family na all girls kaya hindi ko napagdaanan yung pinagdaanan niya, lumaki na rin naman po ako with my dad and mom. Pero, nakarelate na po ako sa kaniya sa bandang huli, yung nagiging conscious siya, nung nagta-transform na siya."
She said that she hopes that fans of Princess and I will find their movie just as enjoyable to watch. Kathryn said there are “kilig” scenes which are wholesome but fun to watch.
At 16, she is super happy for they are giving these projects. "Sinabi po nila na hindi lahat ng nagte-teleserye nabibigyan ng chance i-prove ang sarili nila sa movie. So, nung nalaman namin na magkakaroon kami ng launching movie, super saya kami kasi nabigyan kami ng chance, simuportahan nila yung movie, kaya super saya po namin."
"Nakita po nila na natural kami, hindi yung concsious sya sa galaw, DJ very rockstar, nag na opposite po kami pero pag kasama kami di nag clash kaya interesting nakikita nila."Daniel was asked if becoming an actor was natural to him as he is, after all, part of the Padilla clan, counting Robin Padilla as an uncle.
"Nung una po, ayaw ko mag-artista kasi alam ko ang hirap ng buhay ng artista. Nakita ko po yun sa mga magulang ko. Pero ang totoong mga dahilan po ay ito po yung mundong kinalakihan ko, ito yung alam kong gawin at kasi kailangan ko na pong tulungan ang mama ko," Daniel said candidly.
"Nag-sink in na po sa akin na walang magagawang mabuti sa akin ang pagiging mahiyain. Unti-unti na rin po akong naging confident sa dami ng ginagawa ko sa trabaho."
About new discoveries of Kathryn while making the movie?
"Sa tagal po namin ni Kathryn na magkasama sa Princess and I, parang wala na, simula pa lang, feeling ko nagtatantiyahan na kami ni Kathryn, kaya hanggang ngayon nakuha na namin yung ugali ng isa't-isa."
Direk Dado expressed admiration for Kathryn and Daniel.The two young celebrities appreciate all the people who support them. They always wave and greet to their fans even they feel tired. Direk shared to us that he never experience any difficulties in shooting with KathNiel. “Mayroon talagang mga pagkakataon na medyo mababa ang energy kasi napapagod din sila, pero madali silang kausap, madaling i-motivate, madaling pagsabihan, kaya pagsabi ng ‘action!’ ready na agad!”
