Before our favorite love teams rose to popularity, some of them were paired up on old projects with a different star. We may now have the likes of KathNiel, LizQuen, and even JaDine as a few of the top love teams in this generation, but years ago, these were the celebrity love teams people were rooting for.
Here's a look back at some of the former celebrity pairings on TV.

2. James Reid and Yen Santos
Fresh out of Pinoy Big Brother, James teamed up with fellow PBB alum Yen Santos in the teleserye Pintada.
3. Kathryn Bernardo and Enrique Gil

4. Julia Barretto and Enrique Gil
Aside from Kathryn, Enrique was also paired up with Julia Barretto for the TV series Mirabella. Back then, their love team was referred to as QuenLia.
