With February being the month of love, we’re going to take a look at some of our favorite love teams. Whether or not you know what a love team is, don’t worry we got you covered! Before there was a Brangelina or Bennifer, Filipino pop culture was mashing up their favorite celebrities together with creative fandom names. Let’s find out how far back love teams have been dominating the Filipino entertainment scene and go through some of the most kilig team-ups.
If you ask anyone in your family, they’ll tell you who their favorite love teams are. This formulaic phenomenon is basically foolproof. Fans cannot get enough of seeing their fave celebs pair up for a film, tv, or even a song. The chemistry is real on-screen and making all the fans tip over with kilig.

Love teams have been around a long time and celebs have had more than one team up. It all depends on the chemistry between the two actors, the relationship they form on-screen, and the support from fans. As new actors come into the industry, there’s going to be more team ups and the cycle continues, the kilig continues. Tell us your favorite love team couples on @myxglobal
