Hot Stuff: Three Reasons Why JaDine's New Film Is the Ultimate Summer Kilig Movie

Their chemistry is more than enough to give you a kilig overload, and the film's plot which revolves around lovers who only get to be together during summers give major bonus feels, we know, but just in case you need more convincing, or simply a preview of other things you can look forward to, before you watch James Reid and Nadine's upcoming film, This Time, here are three:


1. It’s Nadine’s first time in Japan. With scenes shot in Saga, Japan, the movie paved the way for the fulfillment of Nadine's dream to visit Japan and see cherry blossoms.

But for sure, as they go all out for love, we'll get loads of kilig moments that will set the benchmark for our #RelationshipGoals!

When Nadine discovered that James can iron his clothes on his own!
