We can all agree that no one saw the JM de Guzman and Barbie Imperial tandem coming. But now that it’s here and their Precious Hearts Romance  drama is airing soon, we can’t help but notice how much chemistry this new team-up has. The 29-year-old leading man of box office hit That Thing Called Tadhana surprisingly looks great together with showbiz newbie and former Pinoy Big Brother housemate, Barbie Imperial.

Although not everyone is pleased with this pairing, JM and Barbie are ready to prove the critics wrong.

JM de Guzman vows to do better this time as he headlines a new soap with neophyte leading lady Barbie Imperial. When news broke out that Barbie Imperial was JM’s leading lady, such announcement was not warmly welcomed by a few. Some critics point out that Barbie is lacking in acting skills, fearing that the Pinoy Big Brother alumna will fall short whenever she has to measure up to JM’s acting skills.

This being JM’s first project since his comeback, he is very much determined to prove that he deserves this second chance, and he is glad that Barbie is on his side to support and bring out the best in his acting skills. “Sobrang gaan [ni Barbie katrabaho] As an actress, bukas na bukas siya, di siya mahirap makatrabaho. Naghihilahan kami pataas, nagtutulungan kami. As a friend, sobrang kulit. Pag walang take nagkukulitan kami. Ang maganda sa amin di kami nagpapagalingan.”

The actor also said that he salutes Barbie for giving her one hundred percent in this project. “Wala naman siyang inhibitations. Mararamdaman mo sa kanya, ‘Ah, break ko ito, pagbubutihan ko.’ We’re doing our best naman para makapag-contribute sa team effort ng lahat.”

Mabubuo na ang larawan ng pag-ibig! #PHRArawGabi malapit na sa ABS-CBN! #RSBDramaUnit

Despite their serye being sensual and romantic, JM clarified that he has no qualms with Barbie’s boyfriend, Paul Salas since he’s close with him. “Hindi siya dumadalaw sa set pero si Paul madalas kong ka-text, ka-chat ko sa Instagram. Selos? Hindi, maiintindihan naman niya. Bata pa lang si Paul, katrabaho ko na siya sa Mula Sa Puso, kapatid ko siya.”

There isn’t a word yet on when Araw Gabi is going to premiere. For now, watch the full trailer below:
