Get ready to dull your senses with great booze and loud music with our Sinulog Heartthrob Jhoseph Llorente, as he joins the wolf pack of alpha males in LoveYourself’s hottest event, Cherry Poppin’ – The 3rd Party on February 25 at One Canvas Events Place in Makati (get tickets here:

Sef, as he is oftentimes called, is a 21-year-old alumnus of both Far Eastern University and De La Salle University. He might be one of the wolf cubs in this year’s searing pack of auctionees, but he’s definitely one to look out for. He is currently employed at Smart Communications Inc. as a Product Marketing Specialist. If he’s not dressed up in corporate wear, he can be caught donning his glad rags for a titillating night of revelry.

Unbeknownst to most, there’s another side to the Sinulog Festival we’ve all grown to love. Take away the vibrant tints and the resounding drumbeat and you’ll see the vulnerable and fervent side of this week-long fete in the Queen City of the South. And just like the festival, there’s also another side to our Sinulog Heartthrob. While he loves filling up with booze and raving until dawn, Sef has a soft spot for the arts and architecture. It’s pretty evident in his Instagram feed (@jhosephllorente), which has a solid 30 thousand followers. His gallery is adorned with remarkable shots of our homegrown architecture, from the towering modern skyscrapers of Makati to the minimalistic ancestral houses of Vigan.

Aside from being an aficionado of the arts and architecture, Sef himself is a work of art. Many would undeniably be enticed by his half-naked photos also scattered in his feed. And how does he maintain a sculpted physique, you wonder? He sweats off the booze through regular visits to gyms around Makati and BGC. Now, that’s one piece of art we can definitely get addicted to!
