Poor boy meets rich girl, and together they fall in love and beat the odds. It’s a familiar trope we have seen again and again, but can’t seem to get enough of. After all, who doesn’t love a great romance story?

In the iWant original movie “Wild Little Love,” “Kadenang Ginto” co-stars Andrea Brillantes and Seth Fedelin or SethDrea star in their first digital movie as a love team. Here, they play spoiled Sam and playboy Jake, who are paired together by fate as they try transcend the bounds of their socio-economic classes.

If you’re craving to watch stories of wildly different people proving their love for each other, here are modern love stories with a Cinderella twist you can watch on iWant:

1. Sam and Jake in “Wild Little Love”

When spoiled rich girl Sam (Andrea) is forced to go to a public school, she finds a savior in Jake (Seth). Even with her “maarte” demeanor, Jake finds a soft spot for Sam, who only wants to impress her father. Sam is also inspired by the hardworking boy who never lets his confidence falter. The two work on their own dreams and support each other only to be tested by the difference of their statuses in life.

2. Ella and Alex in “Basta’t Kasama Kita”

In one of the best Pinoy romcoms ever, Aga Muhlach plays a jeepney driver who accidentally meets Princess Ella (Dayanara Torres), who gets tired of security personnel monitoring her every move 24/7 and yearns for independence. But their “langit-lupa” situation is not what will threaten their budding relationship, but the fact that Ella keeps her real identity from him.

3. Sasa and Nico in “Babe, I Love You”

Nico (Sam Milby) is an architecture professor who is focused on his career, while Sasa (Anne Curtis) is a promo girl whose line of work is not exactly “acceptable” to him. They let each other go after their differences cause an overwhelming setback they can’t get behind, but unexpectedly reunite after a year in their second romantic meet cute in Quiapo.

4. Eya and Cross in “Diary ng Panget”

Who could forget the movie that showed JaDine had on-screen chemistry? “Diary ng Panget” features independent orphan Eya (Nadine Lustre), who works for rich bad boy Cross (James) to make ends meet. At first, the two squabble like cats and dogs, but eventually end up having feelings for each other. Cross only makes his romantic confession with the help of Eya’s diary.

5. Via and Gabriel in “Mula sa Puso: The Movie”

That spectacular bus explosion scene! And Princess Punzalan’s evil laugh! But seriously, we’re here for Claudine Barretto and Rico Yan’s soap opera film version. Via (Claudine) is a rich debutante who runs away from an arranged marriage and becomes – literally –a damsel in distress saved by her prince, taxi driver Gabriel (Rico). It’s not only their statuses that thwart their romance, but their parents’ secrets and complicated past.

6. Sean and Wendy in “The Prenup”

After a whirlwind romance, Sean (Sam Milby) and Wendy (Jennylyn Mercado) decide to tie the knot, but their overprotective families threaten to tear them apart. Distrustful of their future daughter-in-law’s intentions, Sean’s wealthy parents demand that the couple sign a prenuptial agreement.
