Is this for real?! Could the iconic '90s love team of Marvin Agustin and Jolina Magdangal be making a sequel to the ultimate friend zone hit Labs Kita, Okey Ka Lang? Production company Project 8 Corner San Joaquin posted a pic on their Instagram that could possibly suggest that a sequel is indeed in the works.
Are we about to see Bujoy and Ned come to life again? The thought is making '90s cinema fans freak out—and we are freaking out, too! The movie Labs Kita, Okey Ka Lang? showed the dynamics of two best friends caught in the sticky sitch of falling in love. The movie highlighted the uncertainty of the friend zone and emo-charged hugot way before the two concepts became millennial mainstream.
A famous line in the movie by Jolina’s character goes: “Yes, kaibigan mo ’ko...kaibigan mo lang ako. And, I’m so stupid to make the biggest mistake of falling in love with my best friend!” Boom. The line still hits deep and hard. Here’s a recap of the movie in this Star Cinema trailer:
Whether the movie is a sequel to the flick or just a reprise of the love team playing fresh roles, we can’t wait for the MarJo comeback to happen. Plus, if the IG pic is any indication, the idea of the pair starring in an Antoinette Jadaone–Dan Villegas masterpiece would be a '90s kid's dream come true.
