Aiko admitted that she is already excited about working with Jomari. As a matter of fact, the actress said that the actor is her acting coach for Reputasyon. “Kakausap ko lang sa kanya kahapon tinatanong niya tungkol sa Reputasyon. Siya ‘yung mas kabado para sa akin

Aiko became playful when she seemed to suggest that she and Jomari might end up together in the end since they are both single. “Ako naniniwala na ang

and it will remain for the rest of our lives. Magkaroon man siya ng love life, ako, may soft spot ‘yan lagi sa akin.
