As one of the co-stars of the love team DonBelle in their first film Love is Color Blind, John “Sweet” Lapus had a fearless forecast for the potential future of Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano’s onscreen pairing.

“I’m pretty sure na just like other love teams na nagkatuluyan, DonBelle will be like KimXi, Kathniel, and Lizquen na hopefully nagkatuluyan eventually. Hindi ako nagtataka na yun ang mangyayari sa DonBelle with their magic on and off camera. Marami akong behind the scenes na nakunan sa kanilang dalawa na i-va-vlog ko (laughs),” he admitted during the Love is Color Blind mediacon.

The veteran comedian also revealed his observations about the two stars and why Donny and Belle remind him so much of another successful and enduring love team, Kathniel.

“Sweet sila, yun lang napansin ko. Technically second project na nila ‘to, nauna na nga yung He’s Into Her, so hindi na ako nagulat na may movement I’ve seen in many love teams and actually DonBelle reminds me so much of Kathniel na kasama rin ako sa first movie nila together. Iba yung magic eh. And individually I like them both. Si Donny feeling ko just like Daniel (Padilla). Lahat ata ng mga artista na ang parent ay artista rin, talagang bini-briefing sila ng mga parents nila na artista. Kasi talagang napakabait na bata, simpatico, unang bumabati sa senior actors. Alam mong na-train mabuti ng mga magulang na artista din. Ganyang ganyan si Daniel eh,” he explained.

Sweet also said that Belle reminds him so much of another former child star, Kathryn Bernardo.

“Yung sweetness and aside from the fact na pareho silang child actors na galing sa Goin’ Bulilit. Malaki ang paghanga ko sa mga child actors kasi nasisipagan ako. For a kid na magtrabaho instead of having a normal kid’s life na maglaro sa kalye and everything. Mataas ang respeto ko. Yun rin ang nakikita ko kay Belle. Napaka-sweet na bata. I could testify kasi nga ako yung lagi niyang ka-eksena. Napakahusay niya and she’ll go places. Hindi ako magtataka na magkaroon siya ng best actress award in the future. Malalim yung acting niya,” he added.
