Wattpad Review – She's Dating The Gangster by Bianca Bernardino This is a tagalog tragic romance book that tells a story of an everlasting. Based on the novel by Bianca Bernardino, She's Dating the Gangster follows teenagers Athena (Kathryn Bernardo) and Kenji (Daniel Padilla).
It must have been an easy read but it really was not. Some stories I've read before were cliche but at least they were written properly.
I barely got through chapter 15 and this story has 50 chapters if I'm not m A lot of my friends recommended this so I thought that I may give this story a chance. I barely got through chapter 15 and this story has 50 chapters if I'm not mistaken.
The characters had the potential to be good but they were really poorly described and written.
‘She’s Dating the Gangster’ Review: Asking for a greater love story
Plus, it was really irritating to see various emoticons. And by emoticons, I do not mean the simple emoticons. Some sentence were in Tagalog then the next was in English then later some Korean expression will be inserted.
There were words that really bothered me. I think it was the word "hindi". But eventually, they fell in love with each other. So typical love story right?
From hate to love. What's with the book that made us crazy? I should type here the summary of the story, you have to read it here orginal story or buy the book. But if you have time with you, read the both version. Characters The basic characters are the same except that Carlo adopted brother on the original story and only appears after half of the story became the real brother of Athena female protagonist.
Although, I know it's necessary to change it because of the editing of the whole story. Well, let's talk about that later: While the book is only around less pages. That is because of the removal of the unnecessary scenes.
Which on my opinion, is too much. It has to be a happy ending, for the sake of profitable escapism. Thus, instead of death as the payment for love, Garcia-Molina chose the reality of not being with the one you love, of waiting, of eventually settling. It is this ending that separates Bernardino's juvenilia and Garcia-Molina's masked maturity, in the midst of studio compromises.
There are simply more heartaches more immense than the ones dealt by mortality. The film adaptation of She's Dating the Gangster is a series of risks taken that paid off quite well.

It could have been a straight adaptation and it would still have pre-teens bawling because of the tragic ending.
It could have been set in the present with its characters mouthing pop culture references that are hip and relatable to the target audience. It could have been just about Bernardo and Padilla, and not Zulueta and Gomez, whose onscreen love affairs are relics. It could have been just another romantic comedy, the ones that mainstream studios have been churning out for corporate survival ever since the decline of the demand for more serious fare. It's good that it's not. She's Dating the Gangster is not art.
It is still a film designed and crafted for escape, the ones Garcia-Molina, with her knack for fake hairpieces and dreamy fantasies, is so good at making.
