Love Is Written In The Stars IN New WeTV Original Kilig Series “Boyfriend No. 13”

“Good morning, Philippines! Isa na namang step patungo sa true love!” This is the battlecry of Kimverly Santillan, the yet-to-be-lucky-in-love lead character in the new WeTV Original romantic comedy series, Boyfriend No. 13, when she wakes up in the morning. Finding “the one” is her goal in life, and she is counting on destiny to deliver! But fate has a few tricks and surprises up her sleeve. Join Kimverly on her journey to finding her soulmate when Boyfriend No. 13 starts streaming for FREE on WeTV on July 02, Friday, at 7:00PM. New episodes drop weekly.

Boyfriend #13  puts together a talented cast to tell this unusual love story. One of Philippine showbiz’s most in demand actresses, Sue Ramirez, plays Kimverly, the twentysomething romance novelist at the center of the series. She lives her life according to the cards, the stars, and her superstitions. Her every move is calculated to deliberately avoid misfortune and ensure that her life is as close to perfect by letting her many "pamahiin" guide her way. Reading her daily horoscope, wearing lucky charms to ward off bad luck, and regularly consulting fortune tellers are some of Sue’s favorite go-to’s to being happy.  When she meets the tall and charming doctor, Don Lee, played by the hunky and handsome JC De Vera, all signs indicate that he is her destiny. Or is he really? On the other hand, there’s the rogueish and rugged officemate Bob, played by the boyishly goodlooking JC Santos, who needs a writing mentor. The problem is, the next guy will end up being her Boyfriend No. 13! With two very dashing choices, what is Kim going to do now? 


Boyfriend #13 is the newest WeTV Original series produced by the streaming service, and its second romantic comedy for 2021. Actor / writer / comedian John “Sweet” Lapus came on board as director, injecting a good dose of comedic flair, charm and kilig feels – with pamahiin in tow – to the eight-episode series. “Everyday, excited kami dumating sa set to work,” is how Sue described the twelve day locked-in shoot. Sweet also played a key role in the casting, with Sue and JC Santos being his first picks for Kim and Bob. For the role of Don, he wanted an actor who is your classic handsome guy – and JC De Vera was tops on his list. The idea of having both male leads named “JC” just made the casting even more appealing. Rounding out the talented cast are Lotlot de Leon, Phi Palmos, Hershey Neri, and Bryan Sy. The series is line-produced by APT Productions. 


Of course, what is a good love story without a cute and upbeat theme song. Takot Lang Masaktan delivers on all points with its hugot-inspired lyrics set to a pop-py beat that will have you singing along in a minute. Throw in a short rap, and this song is lit! Sue Ramirez shows off her vocal (and rapping!) skills in this tune that will be soon be your favorite LSS-track. The official lyric video for the song was just launched on the WeTV and Boyfriend No. 13 social media accounts. You can also stream this happy tune on Spotify!

WeTV launched the official trailer for Boyfriend No. 13 during its recent press conference, which was also livestreamed on the WeTV Facebook page. It may have been just over a minute long, but I think we heard many hearts go aflutter across the internet when JC Santos and JC De Vera, as Bob and 



Don, came onscreen. But who wins Kim’s heart in the end? The answer will be revealed when the series premieres on July 02, Friday at 7:00PM. New episodes drop weekly, so abangan!!!
