LizQuen makes emotions stirring

Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano, known among their fans as LizQuen, continue chasing forever in My Ex and Whys. Star Cinema’s official Valentine offering helmed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, her very first film project with LizQuen, undoubtedly one of the hottest and most successful love teams in showbiz today.

In the movie, Enrique and Liza play ex-couple. Cali (Soberano) can’t move on after she learns Gio (Gil) cheated on her. The two are reunited by an unexpected project that may bring them back together. Gio wants to prove that he is a changed man but Cali refuses to believe him. The estranged couple flies to Korea for an event. Cali realizes she still has feelings for Gio after all.

My Ex And Whys is now officially part of Star Cinema’s tradition of bringing high caliber romantic movies in February. It marks the very first Valentine film starring Enrique and Liza.  

DATE MOVIE. Young superstars Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano will make you cry and fall in love  in the romantic movie produced by Star Cinema 
It is the first movie with Enrique and Liza after Everyday I Love You shown in 2015. This is also their first project since the mammoth success of their top-rating primetime TV series Dolce Amore on ABS-CBN last year.

Individually and as a pair, Enrique and Liza are two of the most influential young actors in the industry today as seen in their non-stop multiple product endorsements and the numerous magazine covers and spreads that they have graced. LizQuen is probably one of the most relatable love teams in the business as proven by the unwavering support of their countless fans.

Fans can look forward to the ultimate feel-good, romantic experience this Valentine season. My Ex And Whys is the perfect Valentine flick not just for couples but for singles as well, or the entire family, so to speak.

My Ex And Whys hits cinemas nationwide on Feb. 15.


Meanwhile, reminisce the songs that have made your youthful years burgeoning with love. Or if you’re still in your teens and early 20’s, the ditties that made your parents fall in love many times.

Singer-songwriter Richard Poon and actor-businessman Richard Yap take on classic love songs and make the ladies swoon in their first album together, released just in time for the Valentine season.

Titled Richard x Richard, the album is co-produced by Star Music and Cornerstone Entertainment, Inc., and marks The Chinito Crooners’ second collaboration following their successful concert last year.

“It’s a purely romantic album. We’re both very excited, especially with the songs and genres. When the project was proposed to us, we felt people would like it and that there is a market for it,” Poom said.

Richard x Richard contains covers of 10 love songs -- Poon and Yap with five songs each -- that have been favorites across different generations.

The album features Poon’s covers of “Love Boat,” “Can’t Smile Without You,”  “Grow Old With You,” “The Last Time,” and “Goodbye.” Yap, meanwhile, croons in his versions of “Never Find Another Love Like Me,” “Nothing’s Gonna Change My Love for You,” “You Can’t Hurry Love,” “Don’t Know What to Do, Don’t Know What to Say,” and “Promise Ain’t Enough.”

“I think it’s very interesting because Richard’s genre is big band swing and mine’s pop ballad, and you get that in one compilation. I’m thrilled because this is a dream collaboration for me,” shared Yap.

Richard x Richard is now available at all record bars nationwide for only P250, and can be streamed and downloaded on iTunes, Apple Music, and Spotify.
