Fan accounts were quick to share some photos taken inside the airplane, while others could not resist showing their elation towards the upcoming project. 

In a “24 Oras” report, an ecstatic David says, “Super excited of course. Siyempre, it’s with Barbie and such a pleasure to work with her.”

“That Kind of Love” is BarDa’s first-ever film, succeeding their highly acclaimed team-up in the historical fantasy drama “ Maria Clara at Ibarra.”

David and Barbie have worked closely in the past, notably in the series “Mano Po Legacy: The Family Fortune.”

However, their chemistry was only noticed in “Maria Clara at Ibarra” where Barbie played the role of Klay Infantes and David as Fidel de los Reyes y Maglipol.

From there, the on-screen love team FiLay was born and ultimately developing into what fans now call BarDa.
