"Hello, Stranger" is finally here!
Last night, June 24, ABS-CBN Films, Black Sheep dropped the much-awaited pilot episode of their first-ever Boys' Love (BL) series. We got to meet the studious Mico (JC Alcantara) and his set of friends, Kookai (Vivoree), Seph (Patrick Quiroz), and Junjun (Miguel Almendraz).
We also met the popular and handsome basketball player Xavier (Tony Labrusca), who accidentally joined Mico's quiz night.
Little did Mico know that it wasn't the last time he'll meet Xavier: their class adviser paired him with the varsity player for a class project since he's the top student of their class. Mico is then forced to go on frequent video calls with Xavier, and ayun na nga, inch by inch they started moving closer. He also learned that Xavier has a girlfriend, a popular cheerleader named Crystal (Gillian Vicencio).
The series immediately became a top trending topic on Twitter last night, earning praises from netizens for its light and feel-good vibe.
It is also currently the #10 top trending video on Youtube as of June 25.
