Jake puts down romantic-comedy movies
Cuenca mentioned that Filipinos have an obligation to watch Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral and other historical films.
“#goyo is a treasure! As Filipinos its our obligations to watch the film! It’s our heritage our history more than rom coms we need to watch this film to learn. It’s our local Lincoln!”

The tweet is in Cebuano. Here is the Tagalog translation: “Ikaw Jake Cuenca ka noon ka pa nagpapasaring nang naging cover sa Yes Magazine ang KathNiel. Ngayon umulit ka na naman. Sabihin mo lang na naiinggit ka sa tagumpay ng KathNiel dahil di mo ito nasubukan. Ang alam mo lang ang maghubad at magpakita ng puwet mo.”
