EX-lovers Julia Barreto and Joshua Garcia shared the spotlight once again only to express forgiveness for each other and say goodbye.
Moira Dela Torre’s hit single Paubaya premiered its music video on Sunday, in time for Valentine’s day. Despite its heart breaking message, it has recorded over 8.5 million views just 24 hours since it was uploaded on YouTube making Garcia, Barreto and the music video instant trending topics on Twitter.
The popular “JoshLia” onscreen tandem, broke up last year and they seemingly gave “closure” to their relationship in the music video bringing tears to their fans on the day which celebrates romantic love. Many netizens expressed their sadness over the closure.
In the credits that rolled at the end of the video, it was revealed that the two co-wrote their dialogue in the nearly 12-minute clip along with Moira and her husband, Jason Hernandez.
Both good actors, JoshLia really look good together with their gazes and body language still expressing love for each other. But as the song said, they were not intended for each other and had to say goodbye.
Here’s hoping for the best for these young people in the love department. Eventually in the years to come, they also mature as professionals and be able to partner again in some movie or TV projects together.
