4 Reasons Why iWant's "I AM U" Got Us Hooked

As someone who enjoys watching shows that will entertain and make me think at the same time, the iWant original series I AM U got me curious after watching the trailer for the first time. Besides the fact that this is Julia Barretto and Tony Labrusca's first project together, the plot is also mysterious enough to make me want to watch the trailer again to look for signs on what will happen next. 

Thankfully, my curiosity got the best of me in the best way possible because, after finishing the seven episodes of I AM U, it's safe to say that it kept me on my toes, and I'm sure it will give you the same feeling, too! But if you need more convincing, here's a breakdown of the reasons why I highly recommend for you to put I AM U on your watch later list.

1. Julia Barretto's superb acting skills

Out of all the shows and movies that Julia has been a part of, this is by far the best! I always knew that she is a good actress, but the acting skill that she showed in this series is excellent. I don't know about you, but the fact that she plays two characters, Elise and Rose, (which she does distinctly and flawlessly) is more than enough to say that this actress has seriously improved on her craft!

2. Tony and Julia's undeniable chemistry

Since he started joining the showbiz industry, Tony had always wanted to work with Julia. That's why, even before I AM U, they already had supporters as a tandem. Now that Tony's wish has been granted, fans couldn't be happier with their kilig moments and scenes that deserve a an award! Julia can stand on her own without a love team, but I'm hoping to see them in more projects together soon!

3. The thrilling plot

Most of us have heard the myth that when you see your doppelganger, bad things will happen to you. And this is where the story of I Am U revolves around. The trailer was already an intriguing tease, but once you further dive into the world of Elise and Rose, you'll know that you've made the right decision to give this show a chance!

4. The twists and turns

What got me obsessed with this series is how it's dark and dramatic in all the right ways. It has a ton of plot twists that will keep you guessing and wanting for more. And even if you only miss 10-seconds of the show, you will immediately feel the need to watch it again!

Despite the series being only 20 to 30 minutes long per episode, it's jampacked with the kind of thrill that you won't get from any other homegrown creations. After I AM U, I have a feeling that Julia is bound to have more projects like this soon. We stan the right queen!
