Featured in “Luv U” are the talented former Bulilits who are now tweeners like Miles Ocampo, Angeli Gonzales, Kiray Celis, CJ Navato and Igi Boy Flores. The program also introduces young heartthrob Marco Gumabao.
“I’m really honored to be part of Kapamilya Comedy’s ‘Luv U.’ This is my first ever project, so I’ll do my best,” ani Marco.
Also jazzing up the stellar cast of “Luv U” are veteran comedians Joy Viado and Smokey Manaloto, together with sizzling hot babe Bangs Garcia. They are sure to give color to the lives of the six tweeners.
“LUV U” is the story of three young girls Camille (Miles), Whitney (Kiray) and April (Angeli), who just transferred to Lamberto Uy Villarama University, or Luv U to finish High School there, where they will also experience about the highs and lows of young love.
It all started when they caught the attention of JB (Marco), Boom (CJ) and Rocky (Igiboy) on their very first day at Luv U. And despite the strict warning of their grandma Lola Paula (Joy), Camille and her cousins continue to pursue the path to teen romance. With all the courtships and attempts on their first kiss, the six teen students will learn a very valuable lesson in life—that you cannot get all straight A’s in love.
In an interview, Miles said she’s ready for the new role and excited for the project because she herself enjoys high school life.
“The program will really make us laugh, but it will also teach a lot of lessons. Young people out there can really relate with this.” Miles said.
Miles added that she’s indebted to Goin’ Bulilit, where she started doing comedy. “Direk Bobot Mortiz didn’t only train us to be good actors, he also instilled in us values that can be helpful in our careers.”
Meanwhile, besides Miles, Kiray, CJ and Igiboy of “LUV U,” and most talked about teen stars Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes, a lot of talented child stars are yet to be honed by “Goin’ Bulilit” and will be part of future Kapamilya shows.
