Meanwhile, as most of the netizens swooned over Martin’s good looks, @MD_pineda expressed dismay for missing the chance to catch a glimpse of the actor in his “100 Days to Heaven” stint.

“Too bad i wasn't able to watch #100DaysToHeaven :( i didn't get to see Coco Martin .. and he's trending right now.. *sigh*,” @MD_pineda tweeted.
