Here's everything you need to know about Boyfriend No. 13:
What's Boyfriend No. 13 about?
Directed by John "Sweet" Lapus, the eight-episode series focuses on Kimverly Santillan, a romance novel writer who wants to find her soulmate. An important thing you need to know about Kim is that she believes in all sorts of pamahiin and lives according to her horoscope!
Kim meets Dr. Don Lee, who seems absolutely perfect in every way. There's just one tiny problem: if they get together, he's going to be her thirteenth boyfriend. And as we all know, 13 is bad luck. So...Kimverly devises a plan with her officemate Bob so he can "step in" and take the unlucky thirteenth boyfriend spot, hoping the universe will believe their little charade.
Who's starring in it?
Sue Ramirez as Kimverly Santillan
Kim's birthday: January 8, 1994
Zodiac sign: Capricorn
Yup, Kim reads her daily horoscope, wears lucky charms to ward off bad luck, and regularly consults fortune-tellers. During a press conference for Boyfriend No. 13, Sue shared: "Sobrang ready na talaga si Kimverly for love, feeling niya nilagay siya ni Lord sa mundo para mag-mahal. Kaya minamahal niya na lahat ng puwede niyang mahalin...Ako rin naman, I think I was put in this world to love. That's how much I relate to Kimverly, hindi ko siya masisisi, kasi mapagmahal talaga ako. Hindi ko itatanggi. Marupok at mapagmahal." LOL, go Sue!
JC Santos as Bob Dominguez
Bob's birthday: November 19, 1994
Zodiac sign: Scorpio
JC on why Bob is the best choice for Kim: "Hindi na niya kailangan mag put-on ng character. She can be real in front of him. He can be real in front of her."
JC describes his character as *masyadong straightforward*, adding: "He says what he thinks. 'Di ba may mga kaibigan ka na [sasabihin] 'O eto naramdaman ko para sa iyo, ikaw na bahala.' Sa character niya, sometimes it's good, sometimes it's not. He's too real."
JC De Vera as Don Lee
Don's birthday: May 20, 1991
Zodiac sign: Taurus
JC on why Don is the best choice for Kim: "Kim should pick Don because she is the happiest when she is with him. That is her state of mind when they are together."
Just like JC, Don is impulsive in many ways. JC mentioned the first time Kim and Don had a conversation as an example, saying: "Nung nakilala niya si Kimverly, he grabbed the opportunity to have a conversation outside of his workplace. Hindi nya talaga naisip what happens next or ano ba talaga nararamdaman niya. Is it love? Is it infatuation? Gusto lang ba kitang kausap at kasama kasi nakakatuwa kang kasama? Nakaramdam siya ng freedom nung nakilala nya si Kimverly."
Joining them are Lotlot De Leon as Kim's mom, Phi Palmos and Hershey Neri as Kim's office BFFs Echo and Manet, and Brian Sy as Bob's supportive cousin Joash.
Fun fact: Sue also sang the show's offish theme song!
It's called "Takot Lang Masaktan."
