After ten years—and counting—of being one of the country’s top love teams, Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo return to doing romantic comedy in their new series 2 Good 2 Be True where they bring to life the love story of Eloy and Ali, two people who find each other but find it difficult to trust because of their parents’ own past experiences with love. A self-confessed romantic in real life, DJ said he did not mind playing a man who is cynical about love.

“Kaya naman tayo mga aktor hindi ba kayo umaarte kasi hindi naman lahat ng character natin ay kagaya natin. Dun lang papasok ang pagiging aktor ko. Ganun lang yun,” he shared during the Netflix media event for 2 Good 2 Be True held earlier this month.

The 26-year-old actor, who has been dating leading lady Kathryn for over a decade now, admitted it is never hard for him to show their strong chemistry onscreen even after playing numerous roles together since 2011 when they first worked together in the teen-oriented series Growing Up.

”Meron kasing magic sa totoong pagmamahal. Meron ding magic sa ganun. Pero pagdating sa enteblado sa set namin ay automatic naman din, pagdating naman dun hindi ko tinitingnan si Kathryn na girlfriend ko siya, yung ganun. Hindi naman siya ganun eh. Parang pagdating dun in character ka din naman  talaga. Automatically, pag nagkaka-eksena kaming dalawa eh hindi ko naman siya tinitingnan bilang girlfriend ko as Kathryn. Tinitingnan ko siya bilang character niya at ako bilang character ko doon. Pag napansin naman ng aming director na hindi maganda eh talagang susuwayin naman niya at sasabihin niya ulitin namin at gagawin naman namin. Sa tagal din naming magkakatrabaho, alam din naman namin tanggalin yung pagiging kami sa personal naming mga buhay at ipakita namin yung dapat na ipalabas sa mga character namin.”

Compared to their previous projects, DJ said fans can still look forward to seeing something fresh from him and Kath in 2 Good 2 Be True.

“Unang una, sa dami ng ginawa namin ni Kathryn, ano nga ba ang puwede naming ibigay na bago ba di ba? I think mas marami kasi kaming nagawa na rom-com films. Yung isang ginawa namin na rom-com is Got 2 Believe so pangalawa pa lang namin na rom-com na series ito. So ang daming puwede pang abangan na bago. Siyempre unang una , iba naman yung kuwento, iba naman yung characters namin ni Kathryn dito and first time din namin ni direk Mae (Cruz Alviar) na mag-se-serye from simula hanggang dulo. So ang dami pa naming puwedeng i-offer na bago dito. At the same time, kasama din yung casting ng aming show. Malaking bagay din yun. And more on mas ganun,” he explained.
