The stage was set for the much-awaited first on-screen kiss as KathNiel (Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla) held each other, looked into each others’ eyes and gave life to their characters’ words:
“Thank you very much for giving me the chance to love you… At pangako sayo, ikaw lang. (Thank you very much for giving me the chance to love you… And I promise you, it will only be you.) — Angelo”
“Mahal na mahal din kita… Ang pag ibig ko, palagi lang sayo. Pangako sayo. (I love you so much, too… My love will always be yours. I promise you.) — Yna”
