Oh, remember when "First Love" director Paul Soriano made a truly iconic cameo appearance in "Starting Over Again"? If you don't, then it's a great day to remember and look back as Direk Paul is celebrating his birthday today, October 17, and what better way to surprise him on his big day than with gifs of his first ever big-screen appearance?
"Starting Over Again", of course, starred his then-girlfriend and now-wife, superstar Toni Gonzaga as Ginny, who may not have ended up with Piolo Pascual's Marco, but did get an implied happy ending with Direk Paul's Martin Cojuangco, a very cute, very awkward engineer who will literally make your heart melt with his gentle eyes.
We feel like it's also of note that Direk Paul's cameo made the hearts of Paul-Tin shippers explode. And for good reason. Take a peek at the scene here:
How adorable, right? <3
Toni and Paul married on June 12, 2015 after 8 years of dating. They welcomed their first son together, Baby Seve, September 30 last year.
Direk Paul's new film "First Love" is topbilled by Aga Muhlach and Bea Alonzo. Produced by Ten17P along with Star Cinema and Viva Films, it is now showing in cinemas nationwide.
