As of 10:20 p.m. on Wednesday (August 28), the hashtag #ALDENxSeoulDramaAwards already had over 160,000 tweets.

The 27-year-old actor, whose movie with Kapamilya’s Kathryn Bernardo titled “Hello, Love, Goodbye” is well on track to become the top-grossing Filipino film of all time, received the Asian Star Prize.

The Twitter showed photos and videos of Alden at the gala night, from his red carpet walk and photo-op, to his speech on stage when he received his trophy and post-award message.

Alden said in his speech: “As a Filipino, I am very humbled and grateful to be recognized in the international scene, along with so many amazing and talented artists here tonight. This award is extra special because it comes at a time when we are celebrating 70 years of friendship between the Philippines and South Korea… It’s always our hope to make people happy and inspire them with our passion. Thank you.”

He thanked the Seoul Drama Awards Committee and the Korean Broadcasters Association for the recognition.

The Seoul International Drama Awards is a yearly festival that brings together all professionals in the field of TV drama production and media industry and global audiences who enjoy television dramas.

The “aldenrichards02” Instagram handle of Alden Richards, the Kapuso star who scaled even greater heights when he paired with Kapamilya actress Kathryn Bernado, now has over 3 million followers.

The big rise in Alden’s IG followers is credited to his highly successful flick with Kathryn, “Hello, Love, Goodbye”,which is poised to become the highest grossing Filipino movie ever before it ends its worldwide cinema run.

Alden’s Twitter account @aldenrichards02, meanwhile, still has more social media trackers with over 5.4 million followers.

Still, Alden was so grateful with the new milestone reached by his IG handle, that he quipped “3M na tayo…I don’t love you.”

This is the iconic line of Alden’s character (Ethan) in the movie “Hello, Love, Goodbye.” The context of this line in the movie, of course, was the opposite. One of Ethan’s actual lines was: “Kaso gusto kita eh, so sorry, I don’t love you.” Before saying this, Ethan told Joy (Kathryn’s character) that when he doesn’t like a girl, he would already tell her “I love you”, to make her leave instantly.

Alden and Kathryn’s movie already exceeded the P800-million revenue mark before the August 24-26 long weekend in the Philippines (counting the August 26 holiday).

It now only trails “The Hows of Us” starring Kathryn and real-life boyfriend Daniel Padilla, which earned P915 million for its entire run, as the highest-grossing Philippine movie of all time.

With “Hello, Love, Goodbye” still being shown locally and internationally up to next month, it is now seen to become the first Filipino movie to hit the P1-billion mark in gross revenues.

Alden remains a contract star of GMA7, where he became a hit opposite Maine Mendoza for the “Eat Bulaga” pairing AlDub, which still has a cult following up to now. Alden’s next project with GMA7 is the primetime series “The Gift”, which is set to air in September.

“Hello, Love, Goodbye” earns P176.6M in 4 days

As of August 3, or after four days of showing, the Alden Richards-Kathryn Bernardo romantic movie “Hello, Love, Goodbye” has already raked in over P176 million in cinema receipts, Star Cinema announced.

The movie is now being shown in 465 cinemas nationwide, a record in the Philippine showbiz industry.

Star Cinema shouted on its official website: “Hello, Love, Goodbye has earned P176,637,000.05 after just four days in cinemas!

The Cathy Garcia-Molina film has officially taken the country by storm, touching the lives and hearts of millions. It tells the story of Joy (Kathryn Bernardo), a millennial OFW who met Ethan (Alden Richards), a Pinoy bartender in Hong Kong. It was graded A by the Cinema Evaluation Board.”

It is now also on course of beating the all-time Philippine box office record of P900 million in gross earnings currently held by “The Hows Of Us”, which starred Kathryn and her boyfriend Daniel Padilla in 2018.

The strong showing of “Hello, Love, Goodbye” is being credited to the full support of the combined fandom of KathNiel, AlDub, GMA Kapuso and ABS-CBN Kapamilya, who braved the heavy rains caused by Hanging Habagat (southwest monsoon) just so they could see personally if the much-hyped on-screen chemistry between Kathryn and Alden is true. And they did not go home disappointed.

Entertainment columnists are now harping the possibility of another project of Alden and Star Cinema, with Bea Alonzo as the next leading lady.

Alden, himself, had said he wants to do a movie with Bea, and it seems Star Cinema will be granting his wish soon, especially with the good work ethic he displayed in the filming of “Hello, Love, Goodbye” even if he is from the rival network.
