Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia are gearing up for their most-awaited comeback on the big screen via Star Cinema's Un/Happy for You. The two were spotted in Naga City with former vice president Leni Robredo, who visited them on the set as per Julia's invite.


In a Facebook post, Atty. Leni shared some photos with JoshLia; the other Un/Happy for You cast members Kaila Estrada, Ketchup Eusebio, Aljon Mendoza, and Nonie Buencamino; as well as director Petersen Vargas.

"Very pleasant surprise to know that a number of the members of the team volunteered during the campaign, including their director, Petersen Vargas," Atty. Leni wrote in her post. "Ang saya sa set. Met Joshua, Kaila, Ketchup, Noni Buencamino (his wife, Shamaine, is from Naga), and the rest of the artists and crew.""


She also further revealed that 95% of Un/happy for You is being shot in Naga. This city in Camarines Sur, Atty. Leni's hometown, is known for its rich cultural heritage. Her husband, the late Jesse Robredo, was the mayor of Naga.

Un/Happy for You tackles the tangled relationship of two lovers after separation, where there are often many unsaid feelings post-breakup. 


JoshLia expressed their feelings about the movie's script through an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN. Julia humorously said, "Wow, it looks familiar." She added, "It's a very general thing that everybody goes through, and I super agree that if there's a thing that still lingers, it will be a painful and healing movie for a lot of people."



Joshua and Julia were first paired in the movie Vince, Kath, and James in 2016. Due to their undeniable chemistry, the movie was followed by Love You to the Stars and BackUnexpectedly Yours, and I Love You, Hater. Their last project together was the horror/action movie Block Z in 2020.



Catch JoshLia's chemistry again in Un/Happy for You in cinemas on August 14, 2014.
