Hugot lines love are catchy and clever phrases that come from deep sentimental emotions, usually pertaining to love and friendships. What are the best hugot lines to make you fall in love?
The quick emergence of hugot in our culture can perhaps be attributed to the classic romantic drama films that Filipinos are so fond of binging. "One More Chance" (2007) and its sequel gave us a taste of the most heavy-hearted hugots known to man. Of course, who can forget the recent "Hello, Love, Goodbye" for bringing us the most relatable hugot to make us cry our hearts out?
What is hugot lines?
"Hugot lines" or just "hugot" has a very loose definition. In one hand, they are brief phrases and catchlines that are written with a deeply-rooted emotion typically the result of a broken heart or another kind of problematic or inconvenient situation. On the other hand, hugot lines are simply dramatic quotes taken from movies, music, or quotes by popular people.
On the rise of Filipino cyber pop culture, creative hugot lines found their place in social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. In these platforms, the users' hugot quotes can be spun from almost anything unrelated. Here's an example of a hugot lines tagalog:
"Ate, pabili po ng kape" "Anong kape?" "Yung matapang. Yung kaya akong ipaglaban". ("Miss, I would like to buy some coffee" "What kind?" "The strong kind. The kind that's strong enough to fight for me.")
During the early period of their trend, the creation "hugot lines love life" was a competition of quick wits and creativity between friends in social networks to see who can turn the most unrelated subject into something melancholic and overly sentimental. Here's an example of a cleverly hilarious hugot tagalog about a Halloween costume.
"Alam mo kung anong costume ko ngayong Halloween? Commitment. Doon ka takot ‘di ba?” (You know that my Halloween costume is? It's commitment. That scares you, doesn't it?)
As you can see, the early versions of hugot lines begin as a seemingly normal statement then takes an overdramatic turn, such as this one:
"Naramdaman mo ba yung lindol? Siyempre hindi. Manhid ka kasi." (Did you just feel the earthquake? Of course not. Because you are emotionally numb.)
Needless to say, hugot lines drawn from popular movies and music made a major contribution to the spearheading of this trend. Almost everyone you ask knows about the classic film hugot lines such as:
"She had me at my worst. You had me at my best. Pero binaliwala mo ang lahat... and you chose to break my heart." (She had me at my worst. You had me at my best. But you took what we had for granted... and you chose to break my heart.") - One More Chance (2007)
"Mahal mo ba ako dahil kailangan mo ako? O kailangan mo ako kaya mahal mo ako?" (Do you love me because you need me? Or do you need me because you love me?) - Milan (2004)
We, Filipinos, just do not seem to have enough feelings bottled up and make a hugot about. After all, hugot is the root word for the phrase "may pinaghuhugutan" which means "drawing emotions from a struggle".
