MOMOLAND's Nancy and Filipino-Australian star James Reid are set to play the lead characters in a new Filipino TV drama titled "Soulmate."

In a press conference announcing the new series, the actors expressed their excitement on the upcoming project.

Nancy commented,

“I’m very excited and also I’m very nervous. It’s my first time coming to the Philippines and actually doing a project so I’m actually happy. It’s totally new to me, in a different country and a new culture. I’ve never been, actually, in a big drama before so I guess I could say it's the first time.”

James also responded, "I have to be honest, I'm a little starstruck of course but I'm super excited to work with her."

Although the two remained tight-lipped on specific plot details of the show, James shared, "It's about finding your soulmate," with Nancy chiming in, "It's going to be a cute series."
