Following the box-office success of the U.S. theatrical for I Love You, Goodbye in January, ABS-CBN International’s Starry Starry Store brings in February the much awaited pre-Valentine offering from Star Cinema: Paano Na Kaya, starring the number one love team in Philippine showbiz, Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson.

Kim and Gerald have become such a hot item as an on-screen couple that thousands of fans and celebrity columnists have referred to them as one name: “Kimerald”. They are much sought after in commercials, magazine covers, films and television. The couple scored big in ratings and following with their hit ABS-CBN teleserye, Tayong Dalawa, aired here in the U.S. on The Filipino Channel (TFC).

So much is going for Paano Na Kaya aside from Kimerald. Fans of the fast-rising young singer Bugoy Drilon, Pinoy Dream Academy Season 2 runner-up, will be thrilled to know that the movie was inspired from his hit song of the same title. It has a stellar supporting cast that includes seasoned actors like Ricky Davao, Rio Locsin, Melissa Ricks, Rica Peralejo and Zsa Zsa Padilla, plus highly watched new faces, Filipino American Guji Lorenzana and Robi Domingo, first runner-up of the reality TV show, Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus. At the helm is no other than Tayong Dalawa director, Ruel Bayani.

Paano Na Kaya is a romantic drama about best friends secretly falling in love with each other. Mae (Kim Chiu) has always been in love with her best friend, Bogs (Gerald Anderson). Bogs, on the other hand, is madly in love with his girlfriend, Anna (Melissa Ricks). When Anna breaks Bogs’heart, Mae has high hopes that her best friend will notice her romantically.
The best friends become a couple. But could it be just a rebound relationship? What happens when Anna returns to Bogs’ life? Can best friends really become lovers? Can rebound love finally become true love?

“For some time now, there has been a clamor for a Kimerald movie to be shown in the U.S. We had to wait for the perfect showcase vehicle starring this love team to present to Filipinos here and we believe we’ve found it in Paano Na Kaya. We have high hopes for this pre-Valentine film offering for our kapamilya in the U.S., especially for the Kimerald fans” said Kerwin Du, ABS-CBN International’s Head of Theatricals.
