KathNiel’s ‘Crazy Beautiful You’ Hits Hong Kong

The KathNiel (moniker for the Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla loveteam) ‘fever’ has reached Hong Kong as almost 800 overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) from the farthest areas of the “Fragrant Harbor” recently filled the University of Hong Kong for the single-day, multiple-time screening of the worldwide blockbuster “Crazy, Beautiful, You.”

People from all walks of life, age and race, all experienced the magic of the KathNiel tandem but most importantly, the inspiration brought by the movie that proved to be more than a teeny bopper flick. The Star Cinema movie which was a blockbuster hit at TFC@theMovies’ screenings in the U.S., Canada, Middle East, Europe and Singapore, shared Filipino values from acceptance, forgiveness, sacrifices to unconditional love, including those of parents, played in the movie by Lorna Tolentino and Gabby Concepcion.


The movie, screened by the CEDARS SERVICE 100 Domestic Workers Empowerment Project (DWEP) as part of its Inter-cultural Integration program, was a first for Asia’s top academic institution. As a highlight of the screening, member international students facilitated an interactive discussion headed by Dr. Michael Manio, Chi Ian Tang (from Macau), Masaaki Onitsuka (from Japan) and their international students from the University of Hong Kong from (Germany, Belarus, Macau, Hong Kong, China, Bulgaria, Chile, Japan, Slovakia, Norway, USA, Canada, India, Ghana and Philippines).

The movie also featured Filipino traditions and famed spots which inspired the members to conduct a sharing of unique practices plus interactive games, all as part of the cultural integration and exchange program.

Because of the inspiration and fruitful exchange brought by the movie, the DWEP clamored for additional screenings the same day to accommodate the number of people from OFWs to students, who patiently waited to see the film. “Crazy, Beautiful You” was organized by SERVICE 100 DWEP in partnership with the Philippine Consulate General to empower Domestic workers in Hong Kong and students at the university. The film screening was also made possible by The Filipino Channel (TFC).
