Has Jolo Revilla changed his mind about wanting to court Kim Chiu?


081711-jolo_main.jpgAt the press conference of the upcoming ABS-CBN teleserye My Binondo Girl, Jolo Revilla was hounded by questions regarding his alleged intentions for his new on-screen partner Kim Chiu. Jolo clarified that he never said anything about courting Kim, only that he fancied the Fil-Chinese star. “Wala naman akong sinabing gusto ko siyang ligawan. Ang sinabi ko lang nagugustuhan ko siya.”

But Jolo never closed his doors on the possibility of pursuing Kim in the future. “Tingnan na lang natin pagtagal. Mahaba pa naman ang panahon na magkakasama kami rito sa My Binondo Girl. Wala namang imposible sa buhay. Maganda na unti unti mong nakikilala nang lubusan ‘yung tao. Friendship muna. Lahat naman ng relasyon ‘yun ang basis.”

The actor explained that in the course of taping for My Binondo Girl, scheduled to air this August 22, he saw lots of qualities to like in Kim. “Napaka down-to-earth niya. Makikita mo na kung ano man ‘yung narating niya, hindi niya nilalagay sa ulo niya. Tsaka kahit pagod na sa taping, one of the boys pa rin siya. Game siyang makipagkulitan sa amin, kasama si Direk Malu (Sevilla). Napakaalaga rin niya sa aming lahat.”

Also during the press con, reporters were curious about the alleged fifty pieces of siomai Jolo brought to the set especially for Kim, knowing that it was her favorite snack. “‘Yung mga siomai na ‘yun hindi lang naman para kay Kim, para sa lahat ng mga kasama ko sa My Binondo Girl.

Aside from Jolo, Matteo Guidicelli and Xian Lim will also play Kim’s leading men. With the way Jolo treats his leading ladies, it’s inevitable to suspect that he has special intentions for Kim. He explained though, “Nagiging gentleman lang tayo sa ating leading lady. Itinatrato lang natin nang tama ang ating kapareha para rin sa ikagaganda ng trabaho.” Jolo was once rumored to have courted Melissa Ricks, his leading lady in Pepeng Agimat and Noah.

His parents, Senator Bong Revilla and Representative Lani Mercado, expressed excitement about meeting Kim one day. “Hindi ko pa siya naipapakilala sa mga magulang ko. ‘Yung parents ko tuwang tuwa na si Kim ang makakatrabaho ko. Looking forward din sila na makilala siya kapag nagkaroon ng pagkakataon.”

He admitted that having a love life is not among his immediate priorities at the moment. For now his focus is divided between his showbiz work and his responsibilities as a Barangay Captain in Bacoor, Cavite. “Napakahirap ng magiging buhay ko kung sasamahan ko pa ng love life. Konti na nga lang ‘yung oras ko para sa sarili ko, magdadagdag pa ako? Focused ako ngayon sa showbiz career ko at sa mga constituents ko sa Bacoor.
