The clash has begun for engaged couple Korics (Daniel Padilla) and Q's (Kathryn Bernardo) families in the first episode of the digi movie series "The House Arrest of Us."
It premiered this October 24 on KTX.ph and it was exactly as ~riot~ as we expected it to be. The episode opened with Korics and Q from the future, recalling their "biggest challenge yet" as a couple. Naturally, they began telling the story of their pamamanhikan dinner from hell where their two vastly different families met each other for the first time.
Q is the only child of the glamorous and eternally overdressed Zenaida (Ruffa Gutierrez) and her husband, the bling king, Sylvester. Q's family exudes nouveau riche energy — they made a fortune from their chain of beauty salons which they, of course, named Sylvester's Salon.
Korics' "showbiz" family is a little more carefree and a little more down-to-earth. His mom Berna (Arlene Mulach) and his step father Papatu (Dennis Padilla) are zumba instructors, while his biological dad Papawan (Gardo Verzosa) seems to be an OFW in Japan. His brother Rufus (Anthony Jennings) is addicted to Mobile Legends, his sister Abigail (Riva Quenery) is a social media aficionado, and his youngest sibling is a baby who spent most of the episode in the safety of a car seat.
As soon as both families sat down for pamamanhikan, may friction na agad! Not only did they struggle to decide where the wedding will be held, nagkaroon din ng diskusyunan about money, specifically which family made more of it. Lagot. It got so bad that Q's family's house boy Kuya Roger (Hyubs Azarcon) turned to the object of his affection Yaya Marie (Alora Sasam) and said
But that wasn't the only problem Q and Korics had this episode: Q also lost her engagement ring.
Granted, it was a makeshift ring that was straight up aluminum and was actually taken from a Pepsi can, but it held "sentimental value" for the couple so Q spent the entire episode freaking out about losing it, trying to hide that she has, in fact, lost it, and using every spare minute trying to find it.
