'Marupok' ka ba? Makaka-relate ka sa 'My Lockdown Romance.'

"My Lockdown Romance" marks Jameson Blake and Joao Constancia's first Boys Love (BL) film together.

During the film's digital media conference on November 2, the lead stars of the upcoming movie shared what it was like working on a romance together. According to them, it was an easy adjustment because they've been friends for a while.

"I was super happy [when I found out] that I will be working with Jameson again. We knew each other for quite some time na. Since we know each other na, we didn't have to break the ice or anything," Joao said.

Meanwhile, Jameson said that "My Lockdown Romance" is a refreshing love story.

"We were used to, let's say, may mga ka-love team. We were used to that kind of state, so this is a bit different for this movie. Kaunting adjustments lang pero we pulled it off and we actually enjoyed the experience," he shared.

One of those adjustments was his character Tom's shy, "marupok" personality.

"Sa perspective ko, as my character, it's a bit different because I was used to being the one na nagpapakilig," Jameson said.

"Pero in this part, I'm the one being kilig in the story," he admitted.

Joao, on the other hand, realized one thing while he was in his character Kendrick's shoes — that love is love in all forms.

"There's no difference po talaga pagdating po sa pagpapakilig. Because love is love and however you treat a certain person, a friend, a lover, the way you treat sa pagpapakilig sa isang person, ganoon po talaga," he said.

Asked what sets "My Lockdown Romance" apart from all the other BL projects coming out, Direk Bobby Bonifacio Jr. said, "Each project has something unique to offer. And 'yung sa amin, 'yung chemistry na binigay nina Jameson and Joao, and the format of the movie."

"And it's something kabit na kabit sa real-life situations ng mga tao. Ang lakas ng reliability, nakita niyo naman sa trailer. From all walks of life, with different relationships sa ibat-ibang tao, kakabit sa kwento nilang dalawa," he added.
