The lead cast of ‘Foolish Love’ are (L-R): Tommy Esguerra and Miho Nishida of ToMiho, Angeline Quinto and Jake Cuenca. They posed gamely before the clicking cameras of bloggers in attendance on Thursday last week.

The ToMiho loveteam answered questions from the bloggers during the film’s blogger’s conference.

He shared what he envisioned about Quinto’s character so as Cuenca’s, “I was thinking of a middle-aged woman for the lead, Angeline I guess is perfect. I told them that the lead actor should look mysterious and weird. Mukha namang mysterious si Jake.”

The Joel Lamangan film revolves around a little mature relationship (that of Quinto and Cuenca) and a younger pair (the one with ToMiho). Both are foolish in love.

Esguerra and Nishida play baristas in the story but the latter is being pursued by her boss played by Jerald Napoles. Thus, making the film one hilarious ride about being ‘foolish’ when one is in love. Also in the cast is Cai Cortez who completes the three female friends who are ‘foolish’ when they are in love.
