Okey, I'm convinced - the loveteam of Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo otherwise known as Kathniel is indeed the hottest celebrity loveteam in the country to date.

This was after the "Teen King" and "Teen Queen" rocked South Cotabato and the online world last night, December 20, 2014 during their concert dubbed "Daniel and Kathryn Live!" held in Koronadal City.

Kathniel fans and supporters packed the South Cotabato Gym & Cultural Center last night making it one of the most attended event held at the 8,000-capacity gymnasium. Their fans surely had fun and enjoyed the show as event hashtags #KathnielInvadesSouthCotabato and #KathnielAtKCC became trending topics on Twitter as the hottest teen stars entertained their fans.
Happy Kathniel Fan. Luck you, Caera! :)

As of  7 AM today, December 21, "DANIELandKATHRYN Conquers KCC" also made it to the Philippine's top trending topics on Twitter.

Below are some of the photos shared by Kathniel fans from the "Daniel and Kathryn Live!" event in Koronadal City last night.
