After flooding us with kilig vibes in #Jowable and #JowaVlogs, Kim Molina and Jerald Napoles — known as KimJe — once again bring a whole new bunch of sweet treats as they launch their newest #LockdownSerye.

The real-life comedy couple recently created a joint YouTube account named “KimJe” where they plan to serve up good vibes through vlogs for their boredom-stricken fans during the enhanced community quarantine.

In an Instagram post last 23 March, Kim Molina shared a short trailer of the series. In her caption, she wrote, “Sanib pwersang trip of what we do on a daily ‘lockdown’ life together (Joint gimmick on what we do on a daily ‘lockdown’ life together).”

The two had shared some videos together in Jerald’s YouTube channel last year. The videos known as #JowaVlogs included their date nights, errands and randomness. With these candid snippets, KimJe garnered support from thousands of fans.

However, the last #JowaVlog was posted five months ago so fans were stoked with the new series. In fact, #KimJeLockdownSerye immediately got 1,000-plus subscribers and their video which debuted at 8 p.m. last night had 2,500 views.

#LockdownSerye will be different from the #JowaVlogs because the former will focus on their routines during the quarantine. Aside from this, KimJe will also share challenges that their viewers can try to entertain themselves while staying at home.

Last 21 March, for example, KimJe served their fans a jaw-dropping photo of them wearing their #LockdownCouture. They posed wearing their modified outfits sourced from curtains, blankets and home decor.

In the said post, Jerald said their creative entry was prompted by Ms. Neomi Gonzales and Kakai Bautista, their fellow artists who have always been interested in fashion. Thus began the project #PambahayOOTDChallenge.

Real-life sparks

Kim and Jerald are as fun in real life as the characters they usually play in films. They have the ability to bring good vibes as a couple.

The first episode aired last 24 March where the couple together with Kim’s helper and Jerald’s mother did the “De Lata Challenge.”

The couple explained at the beginning of the episode that this is their first time to stay together in one house for a month.

Kim uttered, “First time naming magkasama ng isang buwan at ang dami naming natutuklasan sa isa’t isa na gusto naming i-share sa inyo (This is the first time that we are staying together in one month and we are discovering so much about each other that we want to share with you).”

In the first challenge, they removed the names of each canned good and whatever Jerald’s mom and Kim’s yaya chose, they ate it for brunch. The 13-minute vlog became an instant source of laughs because their two contenders unfortunately picked dog food and pork and beans.

Among other things that can go viral, it is Kim’s contagious laugh that everyone wants to get contaminated with.

The two are obviously happy with their YouTube comeback and are expecting the series to flourish even after the quarantine.

Sustaining us with high quality entertainment from their theater days and now on YouTube, the couple indeed exemplifies #JowaGoals.
