Jolina Magdangal and Marvin Agustin started the hysteria of kakulitans when they first appeared as a love team in the teen-oriented show on ABS-CBN, Gimik. With those cheesy moments and cute scenes, their quirky pairing was a quick hit. Jolina was known for her unique fashion sense (remember the colored hair?) and Marvin was still a longhaired pretty boy. Ese and Joey, as they were called in Gimik, were different among the other pairings simply because they made the team-up more comedic (but not forgetting the romantic side). The perennial love team also appeared in Esperanza, Flames: The Movie, Kung Ayaw Mo Huwag Mo, Labs Kita…Okey Lang?, Hey Babe! and Gimik: The Reunion.

The screen tandem was cut short when Jolina transferred to GMA 7 in 2002. The big leap meant new partners for the two. It seemed close to impossible for the two to get together again. But luck for their fans changed when Marvin decided to follow Jolina’s footsteps by moving to GMA 7 in 2006. The fans rejoiced--- it was the perfect time to reunite the long lost love team. The series I Luv NY was the first stop, where they were joined by another love team, Jennylyn Mercado and Mark Herras. A movie then followed, I.T.A.L.Y. and another series, Adik Sa ‘Yo, which revived the more comedic side of the two actors. In 2oo8, they hosted Dear Friend, which told different love stories.
