Premiere Asian streaming platform WeTV Philippines is launching yet another original series — Boyfriend No. 13 starring Sue Ramirez, JC Santos, and JC De Vera. Boyfriend No. 13 starts streaming for FREE on this coming Friday, July 2, at 7PM.
Sue Ramirez plays Kimverly Santillan, a 20-something romance novelist who wakes up one day and decides that finding “the one” is her goal in life. Kimverly lives her life according to the stars, cards, and superstition. Every move is deliberately calculated to avoid misfortune and ensure her life is nothing less than perfect. She reads her daily horoscope, wears lucky charms, and regularly consults with fortune tellers. She meets 2 guys — the dashing doctor Don Lee (JC De Vera) and all signs seem to indicate he is her destiny. But there’s also her attractive officemate Bob (JC Santos) who could also be the one. The problem is, the next guy will end up being her Boyfriend No. 13!
Boyfriend No. 13 is the newest WeTV Original series and its second romantic comedy for 2021. Actor / writer / comedian John “Sweet” Lapus came on board as director, injecting a good dose of comedic flair, charm and kilig feels – with pamahiin in tow – to the eight-
“Everyday, excited kami dumating sa set to work,” is how Sue described the twelve day locked-in shoot. Sweet also played a key role in the casting, with Sue and JC Santos being his first picks for Kim and Bob. For the role of Don, he wanted an actor who is your classic handsome guy – and JC De Vera was tops on his list. The idea of having both male leads named “JC” just made the casting even more appealing.
Rounding out the talented cast are Lotlot de Leon, Phi Palmos, Hershey Neri, and Bryan Sy. The series is line-produced by APT Productions.
Like any good love story, Boyfriend No. 13 has a cute and upbeat theme song. Takot Lang Masaktan delivers on all points with its hugot-inspired lyrics set to a pop-py beat that will have you singing along in a minute. Throw in a short rap, and this song is lit! Sue Ramirez shows off her vocal (and rapping!) skills in this tune that will be soon be your favorite LSS-track. The official lyric video for the song was just launched on the WeTV and Boyfriend No. 13 social media accounts. You can also stream this happy tune on Spotify!
As I’ve mentioned earlier, Boyfriend No. 13 starts streaming this July 2, 2021. New episodes drop weekly. You can view the full trailer HERE.
