Kim-Xian not included in '17 Popular Love Teams' List? Shocking!!!

Advertisements
The highly-popular KimXi loveteam of Kim Chiu and Xian Lim has been totally ignored in a list of most popular love teams in the country.

I can't really believe what I saw this morning - that feature at ABS-CBN News website listing down 17 most popular love teams.

When you're asked about the MOST popular love teams these days, you'll probably think of the KimXi, KathNiel or even the JaDine and the newest of them all, the LizQuen.

KimXi and KathNiel may have been getting the craze for quite a long time now, years already, while JaDine was last year's breakthrough love team, and the LizQuen only gained popularity recently, thanks to their hit soap 'Forevermore' which ended on high note just last Friday.

I love these 4 loveteams, but it really shocked me that ABS-CBN News included just 3 of them and excluded 1 in its list of most popular love teams through the years. It's actually an all-time list as it cites those popular love teams in every decade, starting from the 70s up to the 2010s. (photos credit to ABS-CBNNews.com)


1970s - Nora Aunor and Tirso Cruz III (Guy-Pip), Vilma Santos and Bobot Mortiz
1980s - Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion, Maricel Soriano and William Martinez, Martin Nieverra and Pops Fernandez


1990s - Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta (CharDawn), Claudine Barretto and the late Rico Yan, Marvin Agustin and Jolina Magdangal, Judy Ann Santos and Wowie de Guzman


2000s - Jericho Rosales and Kristine Hermosa (EchoTin), John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo, Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson (Kimerald), Hero Angeles and Sandara Park (HeroSan)


2010s - Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla (KathNiel), Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil (LizQuen), James Reid and Nadine Lustre (JaDine), Coco Martin and Julia Montes (CocoJul)


ABS-CBN News should I think explain to the fans why KimXi is not included. Are they playing favorites? What's their basis in coming up with that list? Why didn't they just make it 18?

It's insulting on the part of Kim and Xian, who have been working so hard for their loveteam, and for the KimXi fans, who have been very supportive and exerting all their efforts in making the love team one of the most successful tandems ever to hit our TV and movie screens.

The list was released hours before the airing of the pilot episode of 'Pangako Sa 'Yo' remake, which stars the KathNiel, so I believe it was a way to promote the show. In fact, ABS-CBN News intro(ed) the KathNiel in the list as "undeniably the most popular love team today", and then the 16 other popular love teams have been featured one-by-one thru a slide show, described as "other on screen pairs which had huge fan bases".

HUGE FAN BASES? That's their sole criterion? And therefore, Kim and Xian MUST be included there right?

KimXi is way miles ahead when it comes to that, even if you include all other criteria, such the great success they achieved in movies and on TV.

Or did the list avoid a double entry since Kim Chiu is already part of the list as the other half of Kimerald (with Gerald Anderson)? Could it be the reason as well why the popular loveteams of Judy Ann-Piolo Pascual and John Lloyd-Sarah Geronimo also got snubbed?

They can play favorites. They can favor a particular love team. But to exclude one or completely ignore another who's also deserving or even more deserving than the others, is totally wrong, especially if you're ABS-CBN News, who must make news reports and features with fairness and integrity.

What proofs do they need to believe that KimXi is an extremely popular loveteam worldwide? Recently, they have just been named by Guillermo Mendoza Scholarship Foundation as the Prince and Princess of Philippine Movies / TV, and won as Celebrity Pair in the 2nd PEP List Awards. They were also awarded as Love team of the Year for 2 consecutive years at the Yahoo! Philippines OMG! Awards (2012 and 2013).

Kim and Xian already starred in 3 box-office movies, with combined grosses of over half-a-billion pesos worldwide, and in the 2 top-rating soaps 'My Binondo Girl' and 'Ina, Kapatid, Anak'. - Mykiru.ph

  1. Thank you Myku and to ABS you insulted Kim and Xian by excluding them and the whole Kimxi fandom. You need to either redonyour list and republish or apologize to one of your bankable artists for this and also for sabotaging the first few days of Past Tense Showings by not submitting the films ahead of or on time. What a shame how you play favorites ans how you disregard artists like Kim and Xian. They deaerve a recognition from you too!

    1. Agree 100 percent. Ábs was so paranoid of the kimxi love team, that they really sabotaged the past tense movie so it will not be a blockbuster to surpass their favorites' results. I believe in karma and God sees everything especially the unfairness. We Kimxi fans should continue to pray and continue to support kim and xian unconditionally, forever and for always.

    2. ABSOLUTELY AGREE 100%....ABS-CBN IS REALLY VERY UNFAIR TO KIMXI LOVETEAM AS WELL AS TO KIMXI FANS...KIMXI SURELY DON'T DESERVE TO BE TREATED LIKE THAT AFTER ALL OF THEIR RECENT RECOGNITIONS AND PAST ACHIEVEMENTS BOTH IN MOVIE AND TV. WE TRULY BELIEVE THAT THE MORE ABS-CBN PUT THE KIMXI LOVETEAM DOWN, THE MORE THEY WILL BE LOVED AND SUPPORTED BY THEIR FANS UNCONDITIONALLY AND FOR SURE THEY WILL BE BLESSED MORE BY THE GOOD LORD...ABS-CBN, WE KINDLY ASK THAT YOU PLEASE GIVE FAIR TREATMENT TO KIMXI NOT ONLY TO YOUR FAVORITES MOST ESP KATHNIEL...WE HOPE AND PRAY THAT YOU WILL ALSO REALIZE AND RECOGNIZE THE KIMXI LOVETEAM AS THE MOST POPULAR LOVETEAM NOWADAYS. MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS ABS-CBN, KIMXI AND THE KIMXI FANS/SUPPORTERS....MANY THANKS TO MYKU FOR BRINGING UP THE SAID ISSUE..AS ONE OF THE KIMXI FANS, I HAVE ALSO NOTICED THE SAME..LASTLY, WE WOULD BE MOST GRATEFUL TO ABS IF THEY WILL NOT DISREGARD THESE TWO BANKABLE ARTISTS, KIM CHIU AND XIAN LIM.

  2. THREATENED is the word which ABS-CBN is concerned. The Kimxi tandem and kimxi local and global support
    took the network by surprise, which explains why all the other artists were threatened and intimidated by their successes. ABS executives had to protect their puppets by resorting to negative media against Kimxi and limiting their global air time to international viewers. Kimxi has started a highly respectable love team trademark for this generation, and the network should be grateful and proud for these 2 artists who bring in so much business for the company. Wish there will be a network who can compete against the monopoly of ABS-CBN, so Xian and Kim can escape the inequitable treatment of this network, and get more exposure they rightfully deserve. Wish an international production company can give them exposure too. PHILIPPINE SHOWBIZ SUCKS JUST LIKE PHILIPPINE POLITICS!!! DIRTY & CORRUPTED!!! YIKES!!!
