Several Twitter users had a hard time keeping calm following a sweet exchange from former couple Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto.
It came after the two, or "JoshLia" as their love team is known to their fans, were announced to be in a reunion project, dubbed Love Unlock: E-numan. On the micro-blogging site, Julia shared a poster of the virtual drama, which she captioned, "Cheers," before tagging Joshua.
To which, Joshua replied, "Cheers! Thank you sa followback. HAHAH."
"Sa IG follow back na rin?" Julia answered. It can be recalled that the actress un-followed Joshua and his then-new onscreen partner Janella Salvador on Instagram back in January.
“May pa-unfollow unfollow pa kasi," Joshua teased. "Sige, papaburger ako."
"Wag ka abangers tonight,” said Julia. “Bukas na kita follow back.”
The playful exchange instantly went viral on Twitter, with followers expressing kilig over the ex-lovers' supposed "comeback" both on screen and in real life.

Considered as one of the most popular love teams of their generation, Joshua and Julia's onscreen romance crossed into real life. However, they broke up in mid-2019, saying they had chosen to return to being "best friends."
E-numan will mark the first time that Joshua and Julia will be working together since the 2019 zombie movie Block Z.
Directed by Dado Lumibao, E-numan is one of two parts of “Love Unlock,” which will also feature a story starring Arci Muñoz and Gerald Anderson, titled Hook Up.
The show will premiere on Saturday, August 15, 7:30 p.m., exclusively on Kapamilya Online Live.
