Aljur Abrenica had a hilarious reaction to the pilot episode of GMA-7's new show, TODA One I Love.
This new political romantic comedy series features Aljur's wife, Kylie Padilla, and her love-team partner Ruru Madrid.
In his Instagram Stories, Aljur showed his reaction to one of the kilig scenes of the KyRu love team. Kylie's character tripped and Ruru caught her, causing their faces to come very close to each other.
Aljur smiled, shook his head and did a facepalm.
TODA One I Love revolves around three lead characters—Gelay, Emong, and Kobe. They will find themselves tangled in the topsy-turvy politics of the Tricycle Operators and Drivers' Association or TODA, as well as the local mayoral elections.
This new show gives viewers a glimpse of Philippine local politics--all presented with a sprinkle of comedy and romance.
In the pilot episode, viewers got to meet the strong-willed, independent young woman Angela “Gelay” Dimagiba, portrayed by Kylie Padilla.
An engineering student, Gelay is the daughter of a tricycle driver Mang Tolits and Aling Lea. Family is everything for Gelay; she is willing to sacrifice her own happiness for them. She has a childhood friend Emong, whom she has been crushing on since they were young. But Emong only sees her as a younger sister.
Playing Raymond “Emong” Magsino is Ruru Madrid. He is the son of Aling Jane and Mang Jessie, the incumbent TODA president. A hard-working lad, Emong is determined to better his life. With his TESDA course under his belt, he goes abroad to work as a mechanic. This temporarily cuts his friendship with Gelay. But when his employer closes shop, Emong has no choice but to go back to the Philippines. Upon his return, Emong discovers that Gelay is still the tough girl he knows--only she has transformed into a beautiful lady. Emong now finds himself head over heels with his childhood friend.
However, Emong faces competition when it comes to winning Gelay's heart: the handsome Kobe Generoso portrayed by David Licauco. Even though Kobe is the son of the incumbent Mayor Migs and ex-mayor Mayora Dyna, he still wants to make a name for himself.
