With the debut of his first ever soap with love team partner Nadine Lustre, heartthrob James Reid clarified that the competition, if there’s any, with Pangako Sa’Yo love team KathNiel is a healthy one.
The two love teams have been pitted against each other for a little while now due to Nadine’s similarity to Kathryn Bernardo and their soap On The Wings of Love’s debut last Monday after Pangako Sa ’Yo has seemingly worsened the comparison between the two.
"It's all been said before, it's a back-to-back promotion," James said in a report by ABS-CBN News. "The goal was to break down the barrier between the two love teams. Just chill out, guys!
"But we are thankful because some KathNiel fans do enjoy our show and we know some JaDine fans do enjoy their show," he added.
Stressing that their competition is “healthy” he admitted, "I can't say there's no competition. Siyempre back-to-back kami, so you can't avoid it, but it's a healthy competition. We are in the same network. It's all good fun."
The singer-actor couldn’t help but gush over the success of their show especially with the fact that it also dominated various social media platforms since it started.
"Thank you so much to everyone that supported On The Wings of Love. It's my first teleserye with Nadine so it means a lot to me," James said.
A few days ago, Kathryn’s mother Min Bernardo caused a stir on Twitter with a tweet supposedly pertaining to those “copying” the move of KathNiel fans.
While she didn’t name any names, many took her tweet to refer to the JaDine fans who actively made their presence felt on Twitter as well.
