Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano are set to star in the highly anticipated series adaptation of He’s Into Her. This is our wish list of what we hope to see in the show.
Do you know what could compete with the heat of summers in the Philippines? The fire and anticipation of seeing Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano team up for the very first time on screen, that’s what. Over the weekend, we got our first taste of that when the teaser trailer for He’s Into Her dropped. Even though the trailer was just over a minute long, we already see great potential in the series. While details are still sparse about the show, we can’t help but speculate as to what we want to see from the show. Here is our wish list of things we want to see in He’s Into Her.
As obvious as this sounds, we (and the viewers) really want to see this. ABS-CBN is known for giving some of the hottest and most memorable kilig moments in the past decades. Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano (otherwise known as DonBelle) truly look like a promising love team. The fact that they have been a trending topic even before the release of the teaser trailer shows that they have potential. From the teaser trailer, we already got a cute moment when Donny’s character asks Belle’s character if she is afraid of anything and then asks if she’s afraid of him. We’re hoping for more moments like this.
Belle Mariano full on acting prowess
Belle Mariano has been acting since she was a kid. She got her start in Goin’ Bulilit and has slowly been climbing the ranks until her biggest role to date in Four Sisters Before the Wedding. He’s Into Her will be Belle’s first-ever lead acting role and we know she can pull this off perfectly. She has years of acting experience and we want to see her spread her wings and show off the full range of her acting abilities. The show has the chance to turn Belle into a next-generation star and we can’t wait to see it.
The supporting cast gets their time to shine
Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano may be getting most of the attention, but don’t sleep on the supporting cast of He’s Into Her. The show is filled with a whole host of promising young stars such as Kaori Oinuma, Rhys Miguel, Joao Constancia, Criza Taa, Jeremiah Lisbo, and Vivoree Esclito. Really, there is so much talent in the cast. We hope that the show takes full advantage of the cast and lets each character (and love team) have their time in the spotlight.
Something more than just a straight adaptation
He’s Into Her is an adaptation of the Wattpad novel of the same name by Maxine Lat Calibuso (Maxinejiji). While we want the show to be a faithful adaptation of the source material, we also want the show to add just a little bit of special something to make the show even greater. From Lord of The Rings to Harry Potter, the best adaptations aren’t just 100% accurate remakes of the book, they also add something new or different to make the adaptation special. We’re excited to see what the producers have in store for the show.
Take full advantage of the setting
Romantic comedies set in schools are not a novel concept. With that being said, it doesn’t mean that it can make for an exciting setting. A good portion of He’s Into Her was shot at Brent International School and the campus has so many places that could be used for filming. Based on the teaser trailer, it looks like there will be a varied set of locations both on and off-campus, which is promising. We would like to see the show take full advantage of the setting to enhance the narrative further.
More BGYO in the soundtrack
Before the teaser trailer for He’s Into Her was released, BGYO released a song of the same name to serve as the opening theme of the show. The song is an earworm and has been on repeat for the past week. We wouldn’t mind if BGYO contributed more songs to the soundtrack. Maybe they could do a slow song for a pivotal scene or maybe a track for the final episode.
