Especially if you're in the mood for romance!

Since their debut as a love team in the 2011 teleserye Growing Up, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, famously known together as KathNiel, have garnered fame and recognition for their amazing chemistry on screen, which soon even transitioned into a real life love story! Luckily for fans of the couple, a number of their projects are now available for streaming on Netflix if you just can’t get enough of them.

8 KathNiel titles you should watch online if you want to fall in love with them all over again:

1. Must Be…Love 

Kathryn and Daniel’s first movie as leads and romantic partners starts as a story between two best friends. After their quick game of basketball ends in Patchot (or Patricia) confessing her love for her childhood best friend Ivan, tensions arise and their relationship is tested when he can’t reciprocate her feelings. Things only get worse when her cousin from Manila, Angel, ends up stealing Ivan’s attention and affection.

2. She’s Dating the Gangster

Revolving on a love story about timing, Kenji Delos Reyes and Athena Dizon, played by Daniel and Kathryn, come to realize what true love means and what it costs. The two get off on the wrong foot when Kenji accidentally sends a message meant for his ex to Athena. Due to this, he ends up in a sticky situation that he believes can only be rectified if Athena agrees to be his fake girlfriend to make his ex jealous. However, their scheme grows complicated when they start developing actual feelings for one another.

There she meets Kiko, a simple and free-spirited young lad who accompanies her mother at work.

However, as the now practical and put-together Primo shows just how much he’s grown since their breakup, George realizes this more matured version of her former lover might just change everything.

7. Pangako Sa’yo

Following the footsteps of Kristine Hermosa and Jericho Rosales, KathNiel plays the new generation of Yna Macaspac and Angelo Buenavista in a rework of the 2000s teleserye Pangako Sa’yo. Kathryn and Daniel play star-crossed lovers who try to salvage their love for one another despite the deep-seated feud between their families that took root before they were even born. 

Also starring: Jodi Sta. Maria, Angelica Panganiban, Andrea Brillantes

8. The House Arrest of Us

Contrary to what you might think, no, this webshow is in no way related to the KathNiel movie above. A romantic comedy, it tells the story of Q and Korics, an engaged couple whose wedding plans hit a snag after the country goes into lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving both their families in one place during their pamamanhikan. Awkward as the situation may be, it only gets worse when the two families realize they don’t like each other. 


Also starring: Riva Quenery, Ruffa Guitierrez, Ria Atayde, Alora Sasam
