It’s the time of the year again when our well-loved Kapamilya male celebrities woo their gorgeous would-be dates to the annual Star Magic Ball.

And here’s how these dashing heartthrobs got their creative juices flowing and romantic flair sparkling in asking these gorgeous ladies to be their dates to the glitziest gathering of stars.

Elmo Magalona and Janella Salvador

From a box of pizza, Elmo exerted more effort this time as he serenaded Janella with her all-time favorite classic song ‘The Way You Look Tonight’ accompanied by a string quartet. In an Instagram post, the young singer-actress shared that she initially thought that it was part of the debut scene they were about to rehearse that time for their upcoming movie My Fairy Tail Love Story. She only realized that it was indeed a production number intended for her when he showed her a card containing a cute short poem he penned specially for her.

Young JV and Miho Nishida

As early as August, Young JV expressed his great desire to attend the ball with his La Luna Sangre co-star Miho Nishida by offering her a bouquet of rainbow roses and balloons, with a note written in Japanese which translates to “Star Magic Ball, please share it with me.” In a photo tweeted by Star Studio Magazine, the Pinoy Big Brother 737 Big Winner was flashing her wide smile, indicating that it could be a ‘Yes!’.

Edward Barber and Maymay Entrata

Everyone got ecstatic when Edward suddenly knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring, err, a camera bracelet charm which was his gift for Maymay after inviting her to be his date for the grand celebration. According to the young actor, his loveteam partner had been telling him that since their first movie together was indeed memorable for her, she pined to add a charm to her bracelet as a remembrance. The PBB Lucky Season 7 Big Winner and the momshies of Magandang Buhay couldn’t hide their thrill for what just happened.

Marco Gallo and Kisses Delavin

Marco was indeed so thankful to King of Talk Boy Abunda for helping him ask Kisses to be her muse on the Star Magic Ball during their interview in TWBA. At first, the pretty young actress seemed to ponder about it then eventually said ‘Yes’, which made him dance and grin due to the extreme happiness he felt and hugged Tito Boy tight afterwards. 

Ryle Santiago and Kira Balinger


Thank you @hashtag_ryle β€οΈπŸ™ˆ it's a YES #SMB2017 ✨

With a bouquet of red roses and his irresistible charm, Hashtag Ryle Santiago got the ‘Yes’ of the ever-beautiful and talented Kira! Both of them took to IG to share the very simple yet romantic moment to their fans and shippers.

Bailey May and Ylona Garcia

From a simple IG post in 2016, Bailey elevated his effort this year by proposing a date to Ylona by offering her five stalks of red roses and a cone of her favorite ice cream. Complementing Bailey’s cuteness was the colorful placard he was holding stating, “You’re super sweet like your all-time favorite treat. Ball with me?”. Ylona answered, “Who could say no to this? I’d love to be your date.”

Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto


I'm a lucky girl. ❀️

Since he can’t sing, Joshua got a choir to serenade his reel-to-real partner with Ed Sheeran’s heart-fluttering hit “Perfect”. Julia was apparently astounded and didn’t realize that her suitor was approaching behind her with a bunch of flowers in hand. They hugged so tight and watched as the choir, who were also holding letter boards forming the precious question “WILL U BE MY DATE?”, completed their flawless performance. Of course, she said yes with a caption, “I’m a lucky girl” on Instagram. The whole dreamy moment was captured and shared by their friend Mark Coleta on Facebook.

Markus Paterson and Heaven Peralejo


You're full of surprises... It's a date then, haha! See you at the ball 🐼☺️

Former Pinoy Boyband Superstar contender Markus Paterson joined the ranks of dashing dudes who exerted effort in their Star Magic Ball proposals, as he invited PBB Lucky Season 7 housemate Heaven to be his date on the 30th with a panda stuffed toy, a bouquet of flowers, and a purse of which contents we’re yearning to see. The young actress confirmed that they are going to be each other’s arm candy by captioning their proposal photo “You're full of surprises... It's a date then, haha! See you at the ball.”

McCoy De Leon and Elisse Joson

The Good Son star proved that he won’t let himself be left behind from the ranks of young heartthrobs in wooing their girls to come with them to the Star Magic Ball.

McCoy sought the help of their fans once again as he asked his beloved Elisse to be his date on the party during a magazine cover launch.

Since it was announced that young actor wouldn't make it to the event because he was sick, everyone got surprised when he suddenly appeared on-stage with a red balloon in his hand, printed with their assumed term of endearment 'Lablab'.

The "Will you be my date at the Star Magic Ball?" question flashed on the big screen after the documentary and red balloons poured down at the same time as the banner "Will you be my date My Princess" was rolled down from the third floor of the mall.

Everyone shrieked of extreme thrill, especially when Elisse replied 'yes' a number of times.

We’re so excited to see these young pairs enjoy the Star Magic Ball together and cherish that moment forever. The annual celebrity affair is happening on Saturday, September 30, at the Makati Shangri-La.
