Believing in the power of love
Following last year’s favorite “Crush”, “Homecoming” tells the story of Gilbert and Ruth, and proves how never giving up can lead to a lifetime of bliss and love. Directed once again by Joel Ruiz, it follows the couple on the night of their college reunion as they reminisce about how love blossomed between them through sweet gestures and kilig love notes on their favorite Jollibee Cheesy Yumburger.
“Signs” explores the life of Star, a hopeless romantic who believes that signs will help her find her true love. Directed by blockbuster movie director Ted Boborol, the story takes viewers to a romantic journey as the universe seemed to align and point to Star’s classmate, Mark. It then unravels to a pleasantly romantic twist as Star realizes that while the signs have been wrong, true love eventually found her in the person of her friend Joms.
Director Ianco dela Cruz also returns with an inspiring tale that shows how love is always present with people who truly care for you. “Status” follows Kat and her journey to realization that the true love she was looking for has been with her family all along.
Netizens took to Facebook and Twitter to express their feelings:
One user said of “Homecoming,” “Do not settle for someone because of his physical attributes or his financial status. Fall for someone who never gets tired of saving you from your own chaos.”
A comment from the “Signs” episode said “Ang galing naman! Ang tagal ko nang hindi kinikilig ah, ngayon na lang ulit. Relate much ako dun sa mga signs. Kudos, Jollibee!”
“This kind of love is the purest of all. Kaya ‘di natin kelangan maghanap ng true love. It will come at the right time, in the right place, unexpectedly” posted another netizen.
