Kim Chiu reacts to being romantically linked to Xian Lim



112211-kim-main.jpgAfter her initial apprehensions about doing a teleserye without Gerald Anderson, Kim Chiu was very happy with the viewers’ positive feedback regarding her tandem with Xian Lim in My Binondo Girl. “Of course, natutuwa ako dahil natanggap nila ako with other partner. Yun yung kinakatakot ko nung una na naku baka ayaw nila kasi hindi ko kasama si Gerald. So ngayon na-appreciate ko na meron ng ganon at meron ng bagong fan club na pumupunta sa taping, so nakakatuwa.”

Kim was surprised though when told that Gerald asked Xian to take good care of her. But of course she’s grateful that her former leading man is still concerned about her welfare. “Hindi nga? Ibinilin talaga ang salita? Hahaha! Hindi... Thank you dahil naiisip pa rin niya ako and good luck sa kanya at congrats sa success ng shows at movie niya. Oo naman [na-touch ako dun]. Friend ko si Gerald at hindi na siya matatanggal sa buhay ko. At masaya ako dahil meron na kaming ibang buhay.”

Asked how she feels that many viewers are rooting for her and Xian to be a couple for real, Kim explained that they’re really good friends off cam. “O talaga? Huwag naman muna, Jade-Andy muna (referring to their characters in the show). Hindi [naman sa siya ang pinakamalapit na lalaki sa akin ngayon]. Actually, lahat kami sa My Binondo Girl, sobrang bonded namin, isa na si Xian dun.”

Kim also refused to be carried away by the fact that Xian composed a song for her entitled “Ako’y Sa ’yo Lamang,” which is now used as theme of My Binondo Girl.Nakaka-touch and nakakatuwa kasi palagi niya sinasabi, ‘May kanta ako para sa ’yo.’ Sabi ko, ‘Ano ka ba!Tapos yun pinarinig niya sa amin and nagustuhan naman namin. Hindi naman [niya ako inspirasyon]. Ewan ko. Hahaha! Kayo talaga nilalagyan niyo ng ibang kulay. Hindi ko alam [kung ano ba dapat ang maging reaction ko]. Salamat na lang.”

Does Xian stand a chance should he decide to court her? “Kailangan talaga dito ko sabihin? Wala, ano lang yun, parang teka lang muna. Basta nakakatuwa kasi si Xian patawa siya kahit hindi niya alam na nakakatawa siya. Talented rin, nagigitara siya sa set... Pero sa ngayon Team Jandy muna.”
