5 reasons Kenji delos Reyes is the Filipino Peter Kavinsky

It’s been a month since we were all bitten by the “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” bug - and more than its kilig feel-good story, Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo) is the biggest reason we’ve become addicted to the film. His boy-next-door charm and unbearably sweet antics deserve infinite heart-eyed emojis!

But while Peter is the picture-perfect boyfriend, we at starcinema.com.ph can’t help but notice his similarities to another movie dreamboat - Kenji delos Reyes (Daniel Padilla) from the 2015 film “She’s Dating the Gangster.” They both came up with the idea to fake-date someone to make their ex-girlfriends jealous, but ended up falling for the faux girlfriends instead! 

So to intensify your kilig for both Kenji and Peter, here we list down all the reasons they’re super alike:

1. They both love taking the cutest couple photos

Kenji and Peter may have lived in different time periods, but they both know the importance of a good couple photo! Nothing says “mag-jowa” than the most loved-up pictures!

2. They’ll do everything to make their girlfriends happy

Kenji drove all the way to Bicol just so Athena (Kathryn Bernardo) could see Mt. Mayon again, while Peter went to the Korean grocery store across town to get Lara Jean’s (Lana Condor) favorite yogurt drink. Peter also wrote LJ the sweetest little notes everyday, even while they were fake-dating! If that’s not love, I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS!

3. They’re not afraid to show their affection in public

Some boys won’t show how crazy they are about their girlfriends, but not Kenji and Peter! They’ll put their hands on your back pocket, or teach you how to play billiards like a pro. Saan po ba makakahanap ng ganung lalaki?

4. They only show their sensitive, vulnerable sides to the girls they love

They might look all tough on the outside, but Kenji and Peter go soft when they’re with their girls. They can talk about all the serious and personal stuff with Athena and Lara Jean without fear of being judged. ♥

5. They get to know their girlfriend’s families

Both Kenji and Peter know how important it is to get to know their girlfriend’s families, and that alone makes them about 100000 times more attractive.

In conclusion, Kenji and Peter are just ❤😍❤😍❤😍❤😍
