Handsome commuter in Filipina's viral video has a S'porean girlfriend

Handsome commuter in Filipina's viral video has a S'porean girlfriend

Unfortunately for this Filipino woman, whose video appeal on a handsome MRT commuter went viral, it seems a happy reunion is not on the cards.

A Facebook user who claims to know the man told citizen journalism site Stomp that he already has a girlfriend.

The friend added that the man is a nice guy and is happily attached to a Malay-Singaporean.

The Filipino woman, Ms Harlene Azuela, had previously posted a courageous video proclaiming her feelings for the guy, who caught her eye on the MRT.

Featuring a 30-second recording of him, the video went viral and has been reshared more than a thousand times on Facebook and on content-sharing sites like All Singapore Stuff since last year.

In the video, Ms Azuela said she was inspired by Star Cinema's She's The One, a Filipino romantic-comedy which revolves around a similar plot.

In the movie, a guy had spotted a girl fixing her car in the rain and was immediately entranced by her, posting a video of her it on social media titled "Girl in the Rain".

It went viral and after a series of events, the lovers found their way to each other.

However, it appears life really isn't like the movies and Ms Azuela will not be getting the same ending.
