Enchong Dee prefers being just friends with his love team partner Erich Gonzales for now.
Enchong Dee and Erich Gonzales are set to pair up in their third teleserye, Maria La Del Barrio
which will air this August. Dubbed as one of the hottest love teams of today, Enchong and Erich have legions of fans around the world who wish that the romantic on-screen chemistry would also be translated into real life. At the press conference of Maria La Del Barrio
, the young actor said he understands if fans feel that way. “Naiintidihan din naman namin kung bakit paulit-ulit kaming natatanong kung may relasyon ba talaga kami. Siyempre may mga
fans kami na umaasa rin.
But Enchong has decided that it’s best if he and Erich would just be friends for now. “Lagi kong sinasabi na para sa akin, mas maganda kung lagi kaming magkasama bilang magkaibigan. Mas maganda 'yun kasi
we are making sure na kahit may mga sarili na kaming mga pamilya
we are still friends.”
The 22-year-old swimmer-turned-actor added that he and his ka
-love team are both focused on their careers. “Napagusapan na talaga namin na trabaho lang muna sa ngayon. Mahirap kasi kapag nahaluan na ng relasyon. Ngayon nga lang kapag may dinaramdam kaming problema, naapektuhan talaga 'yung eksena namin
Nevertheless, Enchong remained opened to whatever may happen in the future, if romance is really in their destiny. “Hindi pa rin natin masasabi. Kahit sabihin naming hindi, malay niyo
next year kami na pala. Hindi kami nagsasalita nang tapos kasi hindi mo malalaman
A love team like Enchong and Erich has to deliver convincing portrayals as lovers on screen. This job becomes an easier task for the actor because as he confessed, he feels a bit attracted toward Erich. “I think nasabi ko na
it would be hard to have an instant on-screen chemistry kung walang kahit konting
attraction. Human being lang naman tayo, he he he!
Enchong was again asked about the rumor linking him to Mara Clara
actress Julia Montes. He denied that they have a secret relationship or is even courting Julia. Furthermore, Enchong dismissed speculations that since for now there’s no hope that romance will blossom between him and Erich, he is in a desperate search for other girls. “Ang pangit naman na dahil lang hindi ako nagustuhan ni
Erich hahanap ka na ng ibang tao. Hindi 'yun ang tamang dahilan para magkagusto ka sa isang tao
