ABS-CBN Entertainment offers eight different kinds of love stories featuring Dimples Romana, Miko Raval, Karina Bautista, Vivoree Esclito, Kobie Brown, Andi Abaya, and many more in Love Bites.
Love Bites is another offering of ABS-CBN Entertainment to its 41 million subscribers on YouTube.

According to Romana, who will appear in “Letters for Leah” with Miko, Lance Carr and Angelica Lao, these kinds of stories inspire viewers by leaving a mark on them.

“Naiisip ko na meron kinds of love gaya nitong short stories na ito na (I think there are kinds of love like in these short stories that) it gets stuck on you and it just grows on you. Meron mga kilig at pagmamahal na ambilis-bilis lang dumaan sa iyo pero (There are those that make you tingle and kinds of love that quickly pass through you but) it may have lasting effect,” she said about the concept of the story.

Sky Quizon, Nico Antonio, Genesis Redido, Angela Trajano, Kristof Garcia, Khyza Villalino and Concon Felix expressed their gratitude for being included in the Boys’ Love (BL) and Girls’ Love (GL) episodes of the anthology.

Kristof Garcia stars in the episode ‘Hearts of Pride.’

“Kami nina (With) Kuya Nico at (and) Genesis, we are trying to normalize it. Yes, BL is a genre. Sa tulong (With the help of) RCD Narratives, we try to normalize it na (that) it’s just love. It’s not based on gender. Kung ano ang nae-experience ng straight people, na-experience ng lahat (What is experienced by straight people is experienced by all),” said Quizon.

Redido, on the other hand, accepted the role in the episode as he is a proud brother to his transgender sister, Angela.

“Sobrang proud ako na gumaganap ako ng Boys’ Love dahil natutulungan ‘yung kapatid ko na si Angela (Trajano). Siya talaga ‘yung rason kung bakit ko tinatanggap ito. Ito ‘yung bagay na na-ireregalo ko sa kanya para ma-normalize ito o mawala ‘yung diskriminasyon (I am very proud to appear in a Boys’ Love episode because I can help my sister Angela. She is really the reason why I accepted this role. This is my gift to her so that this will be normalized or this will help eliminate discrimination),” he added.

Apart from Quizon, Antonio, and Redido’s “He Must Choose,” Trajano and Kristoff Garcia’s “Hearts of Pride,” and Villalino at Felix’s “First Love, Last Love,” viewers should watch the first episode of Love Bites, starring Vivoree Esclito and Anthony Jennings titled “Lost and Found,” premiered last 16 September. The story revolves around Aina (Vivoree) who found her memory box filled with items that reminded her of her past relationships.

Other episodes are top-billed by Karina Bautista and Gello Marquez (“One Post Away”), Andi Abaya and Kobie Brown (“Miss Astrologer”), and JC Alcantara and Shanaia Gomez (“TOTGA”).

Love Bites is directed by Kevin Alambra and Dado C. Lumibao. Part of the made-for-YouTube offerings and produced by RCD Narratives, it airs every Friday at 8 p.m. on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s YouTube channel.
