Plot: Joey Hermosa (Erich Gonzales) and Marcus Hanson (Mario Maurer) only have two things in common.

One: they live to make fairy-tale romances happen — Joey through her exquisite baked cakes; Marcus through the numerous romantic comedies he stars in.
Two: their own love stories do not have the fairy-tale happy endings — she was just recently dumped at the altar; he just discovered that his on-screen partner and real-life girlfriend had fallen in love with another man. These two broken-hearted people will find love again when they least expect it.

Sounds like the perfect recipe for a sweet ever after!

Desperate to escape the media frenzy and the intrusive questions of the public about his love life and career, Marcus impulsively decides to go on vacation in the Philippines where he meets Joey who is determined to move forward with her life. Marcus finds himself drawn to Joey’s passion for baking, and rediscovers his love for acting. In love once again, he invites her to join him in Thailand. Joey refuses at first, but she eventually follows him to Bangkok and allows herself to fall in love again. But their love encounters opposition from Marcus’ fans who are desperate to see him reunite with his ex-girlfriend, and from his overprotective mother. Moreover, Joey’s responsibilities back home cause a strain in their relationship. Despite their love for each other, Joey and Marcus begin to question if their dreams are worth sacrificing for holiday romance suddenly turned serious.

Can Marcus and Joey’s fairytale romance survive life’s realities?

Keane: So, there’s an actor and a baker whose experienced heartbreak but find love and solace together. Frankly, it’s the baby-faced fluff from Crazy Little Thing Called Love flashbacks which pushed me through the entire movie. Most parts, yet the beautiful leads did help nudge me more through it, oh and all the wonderful display of cupcakes (YUM)… okay, plus the breath-taking panorama of both the Philippines and Thailand as backdrop.

As Marcus would say: So beautiful. *gulps in O2*

Be gentle on me, since it’s my first time doing subs for a movie. I’ve searched high and low, but couldn’t find any decent subs around, so I had to ask a few of my close friends (waddup Agnes & Pearl?!.. maraming salamat) for help knowing their native tongue comes in handy. I initially watched this film ’cause Mario Maurer was in it and the lead actress is a beaut, but then… HOLD ON, WAIT A MINUTE, is that… Fern in the start of the movie? Like, heck yeah, my First Love reunion!!! I was locked in place and was hooked even more. FERN+MARIO FOREVER!

Winding down, to those here who just hit up the trailer, you wonder, HMMM- when is Mario Maurer ever gonna hit puberty and install his manly voice? *SIGHS* I’m waiting too sistas!.. and my brothers who became sistas! Is it weird he’s talking a lot of English in this movie? Did you catch his German accent along the vaaay? I’m gonna let you expertise in Filipino actors/actresses give your 2 cents on all the beautiful artists in your country. Please indulge us, ’cause some of them were so HAWT! I dunno, I guess I’ll be seeing y’all in the First Love comment box later on.

Comments are always welcome, and I hope those brave enough to comment are not just asking for reuploads XD.

    wow, reaching the 7 seas with these movie dates aren’t you guys?!!

    lol….because i follow thai stars so i know that Mario is no longer the innocent guy he used to be in crazy thing first love (a second part is coming out!!)!! he’s more focus on films lately and must i say he’s one of the daring actors of his generation. its a double-edge sword really. with that ridiculous movie, Jan Dara, with bold scenes and sexual visuals, i can no longer see him the same again. wowsers.

    and baifern, that girl keeps getting sexier by day! they are signed to different channel, so they will most likely get to star in the same movies, not lakorn (thai dramas). plus, he has a gf in real life, though i just read they split, hopefully, its not true because i love them together, unconventional and against the tide.

    well, that’s it for my little ramble on the pair. gotta try out this Filipino movie! thanks Keane! proud of you subbing movie now too!

      OMG-sh, I’m so-so lost in Thai Entertainment World… First Love Part Sxng? YES! I hope we get to watch it by EOY 2013. A Summer blockbuster would be very sweet XD for us int’l fans to grab it by Xmas. Oh Santa, let it happen!

      I saw Jan Dara for rent/sale at the Asian media store where I go get my collection, and Christy Chung is very seductive on the dvd cover. I’m not sure I want to watch that movie since Christy isn’t much of a great actress IMO. I didn’t know Mario was in it. 0 , o” I’m blindsighted for this guy’s, Mario’s, movies and that other cutie, Kao, in Suck Seed. Next, gonna watch Seven Something starring Kao and Nichkhun (2PM).

      Just added srt subbed version. Phew, that is hard to convert! I still don’t know much about srt coding. (X , X)!i The other version is so much easier to code IMO XD.

      Thanks for the motivation. Hope I made AVV proud in some way too. =p

        Count me in your confused world of Thai entertainment, Keane. Whenever Frea and Annette go off about Thai stars, I’m literally on google to search up their names to a photo. Doesn’t help much when they have the same first name.

        Aww there’s gonna be Crazy First Love 2?! Don’t know much about Mario but I searched up that movie…and OMGawddd!! What kind of storyline is that? *shudders*

        AVV crew is always proud and grateful for your efforts Keane! Look, you outdid yourself again with the soft sub! Will watch this in a few. ๐Ÿ˜€

          Welcome aboard. haha~ I had to google some people (and places) too.

  2. 23 thoughts on “Movie Date with Keane (15): Suddenly It’s Magic

    Thank you Keane! I just watched the opening scene and it was amazing! So amazing that I need a break before I watch it again ๐Ÿ™‚

    Is everyone using their own voice? I can’t tell…too many languages are being spoken lol

    I can’t wait to hear what everybody here thinks of the movie.

    Congratulations on subbing, that’s a great thing! Which track is yours?

    • 23 thoughts on “Movie Date with Keane (15): Suddenly It’s Magic

      *waves* Hi momosman,

      I hope this was a good share project. Youโ€™re welcome. Yes, every actor/actress is using their own voice in the film so no dubbing done. The first girl voice belongs to the main lead Filipina actress if you were wondering whether thatโ€™s Baifern or Erich narrating.

      I highly recommend this for the guys to watch too. There are a lot of good pickup lines in this one. Haha!

      Track? I took care of the English speaking lines only XD for this softsubs project.

      Baifern is so-so pretty growing up. Wow! I rarely watch Thai shows, so the last time I watched her was on Crazy Little Thing Called Love. She was tiny then.

      • 23 thoughts on “Movie Date with Keane (15): Suddenly It’s Magic

        Now when you say “I highly recommend this for the guys to watch too. There are a lot of good pickup lines in this one.” Does this work for all guys? Like let’s say a certain guy at a fan meeting and seeing his beloved kpop-idol, will any of those lines work for that?

        • 23 thoughts on “Movie Date with Keane (15): Suddenly It’s Magic

          Haha! Well, hmmm…

          There is a fan meeting segment in this movie. You may find his lines useful XD. I like other pickup lines in the movie, which I won’t get into… uhm, but from my experience if you want to get noticed by your Kpop idol then you have to carry yourself in a way totally unique (good way) from the rest of the fans so your idol will remember you. Life is like a movie set, you have to have the right lighting, right moment, right words and actions… to get the ‘catch of a lifetime.’

          Hope you gain a funtastic M&G JC, and not just fantasizing about it or else how will your idol realize you exist in her world, ’cause I always do for mines.

      • 23 thoughts on “Movie Date with Keane (15): Suddenly It’s Magic

        I agree, there is a lot of good lines. Sometimes the lines seemed cheesy but it was still nice to watch and hear such over the top lines : )

        This movie was good, Mario picks interesting roles. I think his acting has improved at least from the other movies previously posted here.

        I’m officially a fan of Erich after this so i’ll be straying into more filipino dramas ๐Ÿ˜€ Anybody else with me there?

    I was just reading about this movie and the actors yesterday! I saw it’s a Filipino movie so i wasn’t keen on it – too many accents i had to get used to and i’m not up to learning/getting used to another one. I might give it a try…sometime. I still have to watch the Thai movie Alice recommended first! Lol!

    When i was reading about Mario and his girlfriend it seems they’re still together. Apparently they’ve been together for 9 years!!! She’s a cutie – i’m watching her in Punyachon Kon Krua.

    • 23 thoughts on “Movie Date with Keane (15): Suddenly It’s Magic

      Which Thai movie did Kappy recommend ya, Annette?

      I finished Seven Something last night, and Nichkhun was terrible in it ’cause he kept looking for the camera. There were 3 short stories and I only liked the first one “14” with Kao in it.

      I feel like I want to watch another Baifern movie, maybe I need to watch the actual movie where she got her nickname from. haha~

      I am clueless when it comes to gossip, but close to a decade long celebrity relationship is hard to come by (especially for young lovers). Great news!

      • 23 thoughts on “Movie Date with Keane (15): Suddenly It’s Magic

        Sorry for the late reply, school gets in the way! Kap recommended a Thai movie called Hello Stranger about a thai man and woman who meet up and fall in love in South Korea. I’m yet to watch it but i’m gonna try my best to watch it this year. Maybe you’ve seen the movie?
