What comes to your mind whenever you hear the word leading man? Is there a particular person? Are there any specific physical appearance? For many, when you say leading man they would initially think of Piolo Pascual, John Lloyd Cruz, Gerald Anderson, Coco Martin, Daniel Padilla, and James Reid. They would think of someone who has a very handsome face value with a killer smile, pointed nose, and tantalizing eyes.
Well, now joining the bandwagon is the newest Box-Office Prince of the Philippine Cinema. He is the latest and the most-talk about leading man of the millennials. He is also tagged as the "New Pogi"! We are talking about none other than the "Kita Kita" star Empoy Marquez!
After the success of "Kita Kita" movie, Empoy's name rose to take a spot among the country's most sought-after leading men. Actually, one of the hottest leading men became jealous of Empoy. Why? Simply because his leading lady hugged Empoy real tight in front of him!
"Finally Found Someone" stars John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo happened to see Empoy in a hallway. John Lloyd did not expect that the Popstar Royalty will cling to Empoy and hug him tightly! The moment was captured in photo wherein John Lloyd's face seemed annoyed of the scene.
Sarah seemed very happy with the moment and did not notice John Lloyd's reaction. On an Instagram post, Empoy apologized to John Lloyd about what happened.
"Sorry JL kay tonyo muna siya hehehe Finally found someone," the "Kita Kita" lead star said on the caption and put a #supportfilipinofilms with it.
