The movie is a must-see for both Kathryn’s fans and Alden’s fans, especially since both underwent extreme preparations just to fit in the characters they will portray. A different Kathryn and Alden will be seen in this timely film that they shot in Hong Kong. For their characters to be realistic, they both went through intense immersion especially Kathryn whose role is a domestic helper.
One of the cast members of Hello, Love, Goodbye, Joross Gamboa, revealed how intense the immersion Kath went through was just to deliver her character well. To really feel what it’s like to be a domestic helper, she was prohibited from talking to anyone on the set and all the work was given to her.
Joross said, “Si Kathryn yung talagang pinahirapan ni direk na kahit ako bawal ko siyang kausapin. Si Kath nga minsan nagaganyan sa akin na kausapin n’yo naman ako. Minsan, sinasadya rin namin pag nagkagrupo kami, hindi namin siya isinasama sa usapan. Iyun kasi ang karakter niya na hindi siya nagsi-share, hindi nag-o-open sa mga kaibigan. Nandun lang siya, nakikinig…hanggang ganun lang ang puwede sa kanya.”
“Ang gusto pa nga ni direk Cathy wala siyang kasama dapat sa kuwarto, na siya ang magluluto ng sarili niyang breakfast, iyun talaga ang gusto ni direk originally. Hirap siya talaga,” he added.
Because of this, they hope that people will appreciate the movie and become a hit since they worked hard and fought the pressure, especially Kathryn who suffered the most as she tried to portray her character.
The movie revolves between two Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) taking chances in Hong Kong who will eventually fall in love with each other.
This is the first project of Alden and Kath together. Both come from power love teams. Kathryn is the better half of the love team “KathNiel” and the real-life girlfriend of Daniel Padilla. Alden, on the other hand, is the “Al” in the “AlDub” love team opposite phenomenal star Maine Mendoza.
However, their team-up somehow united their fans. In fact, Kathryn and Alden’s fans are in full support of their first movie project together and even planning block screenings in different parts of the country. To date, there are already more than 100 block screenings scheduled by the avid supporters of Kathryn and Alden, and of the AlDub and KathNiel.
