MANILA -- "A new LizQuen, a little more mature LizQuen."
This is how Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil described their upcoming series, "Make It With You."
In a digital press conference on Friday, the reel and real-life sweethearts shared details about their newest romantic comedy series.
"It's another amazing, amazing love story. I hope na talagang they will really follow the journeys of the characters kasi they will really learn a lot as young Filipinos searching for themselves," Gil said.
Soberano, for her part, added: "Ang dapat abangan siguro ng mga viewer ay the lessons we are going to impart through the teleserye -- value for work, value for career, for passion and love."
In "Make It With You," Soberano plays the role of Billie, a free-spirited and hardworking OFW in Croatia.
There, she meets the character of Gabo (Gil) who is on journey to find his true happiness.
"We are happy to be doing a romantic comedy again because it's lighter, and we feel like this is what the viewers really like when they see LizQuen," Soberano said.
When asked if their fans can expect kissing scenes in the series, the actress replied in jest: "Hindi lang kiss."
"Joke lang 'yun!" she quickly added. "We will see, abangan niyo na lang po. Like he (Gil) said, it's more mature and daring pero not to the point na mayroong intimate scenes."
For Gil and Soberano, "Make It With You" is another great opportunity for them to spend time together.
Gil admitted that as of now, he could not imagine working with another leading lady.
"Minsan nga parang iniisip ko, baka sa future na magkaibang project kami, 'Paano kaya 'yung feeling na wala na siya sa tent? 'Yung hindi kami minsan sabay pumupunta or hindi kami nagkikita?' Alam mo 'yung ganun?" he said. "Or 'yung... just I don't see her on taping and I won't be able to act with her, that's kinda sad."
Nevertheless, Gil is not closing his doors on the idea of being paired with other actresses.
"Of course, I mean we will have to grow eventually. Hindi naman puwedeng forever stuck into just a box because we won't really be able to grow as actors in our careers," he said.
"We are open to it, but we are not in a rush," added Soberano.
Directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, "Make It With You" is scheduled for an early 2020 release.
Soberano and Gil's last romantic series was "Dolce Amore" aired in 2016.
