Are you “marupok,” or fragile to romantic advances? Then you might agree about feeling “attacked” by this viral scene in the primetime series “Init sa Magdamag.”

In the clip from the June 16 episode for the ABS-CBN drama, Simon (Nikko Natividad) asks Meggy (Kate Alejandrino) for her mobile number.

She declines, but quickly changes her mind when Simon starts to walk away. Pulling Simon by his shirt, Meggy grabs his phone to input her number.
