KathNiel Brings Pride to PHL

Philippine showbiz’s Teen King and Queen Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo recently brought honor to the country after winning accolades in Vietnam’s Face of the Year Awards for their performances in the hit series “Got to Believe,” which has captured a massive following in the Southeast Asian nation where the Philippine teleserye aired on TV.

The series proved to be a big hit in Vietnam after Today TV started airing it on primetime television, every day, from 7 PM to 8 PM. Vietnamese viewers were indeed captivated by the love story of Joaquin and Chichay, as proven by the high ratings the show registers every night.

The phenomenal Kathniel tandem personally received the Best Foreign Actor and Best Foreign Actress awards last Friday during the gala night held in Ho Chi Minh city’s Opera House.

Organized by IMC, the parent company of one of Vietnam’s largest TV networks Today TV, the “Face of the Year Awards” aims to honor films and artists who had significant contributions to the industry over the past year and are voted by the Vietnamese audience. For their respective categories, Kathryn and Daniel beat actors and actresses from other countries such as India and Thailand.

“Thank you for this opportunity. And to all our supporters here in Vietnam, thank you so much for loving our characters, Joaquin and Chichay, and for loving the show ‘Got To Believe.’ We love you!” said Kathryn.
“I’d like to thank Today TV. We just feel very humbled, very blessed, and we are very thankful. Maraming salamat,” said Daniel.

Prior to the gala night, Kathryn and Daniel already felt the love from Vietnamnese Kathniel fans when they arrived at the Saigon Airport Friday afternoon. Armed with banners, shirts, posters, and caps, Vietnamese fans chanted “Kathniel,” and some even sang the “Got to Believe” theme song.

Fans also flocked to a local mall in Ho Chi Minh last Saturday for Kathryn and Daniel’s meet-and-greet, where the two stars gamely posed for photos, signed autographs, and answered questions.

In 2014, “Be Careful with My Heart” was also a phenomenal hit that earned lead stars Richard Yap and Jodi Sta. Maria the same Face of the Year Awards.
