This impact is evident in the excitement that viewers express in their comments. For instance, @bocatar8598 says, “May dalawang araw ka na lang sabi ni Tulfo, inip na inip na talaga kami sa part 8. Idol, ilabas mo na, baka naman, para hindi na kita ipa-Tulfo.”

@jannicolilegarte5278 seconds this and says, “Grabe, ang tagal [ng next episode]. Dapat gawin nang araw-araw, at pahabain ang kuwento. Hindi ko akalain na magaling umarte si Yukii, hahaha! My crushie.”

Some fans declare that with “Ang Lalaki sa Likod ng Profile’s” quality, it should be on television.
“Sana maipalabas na ‘to sa TV, ang ganda ng kwento,” shares @thelmamejia9417. @geraldevangelista348 also quips, “Another great episode! Dapat dito nilalagay na sa TV series talaga. Abangers here!”
Other viewers also share how the show evokes various emotions and relatable experiences.
@ricoyon307 remarks, “Nakaka-excite naman. ‘Yung kuya kong astigin pinakita ko lang sa kaniya mga naunang episode, parang no feelings lang, pero kahapon nahuli ko siya sa kuwarto pagbukas ko, nanonood nito. Ayun, nahuli ko na kilig na kilig. Hahahaha!”
@andreiportillo2870 expresses their gratitude for the show’s influence on his personal decision-making, “Salamat Puregold, I think I know what to say when the time comes na mag-confess na ako sa kaniya.”
Finally, @JunildaCanilang-yl9oh notes that the show makes her feel different emotions at the same time.”’Yung tatawa ka tapos kikiligin tapos biglang malulungkot ka kasi parang nahuli na si Bryce na umamin kay Angge kasi kasama na niya si Jerry, huhuhu. Laban Bryce! ‘Wag kang magpapatalo sa ex ni Angge!”
In the upcoming episode, emotions remain high as we see Bryce struggle with his feelings for Angge while Jerry stays in the picture. Meanwhile, Angge is conflicted in the way she feels about a past love and a potential new and better love.
Will the two finally realize that they are made for each other, or will they let their indecision and fear hinder them from their happy-ever-after?
