Kim Chiu says she has no other love except her work for now


081711-kim_main.jpgNow that her upcoming romantic drama series My Binondo Girl is nearing its premiere, Kim Chiu admitted she was ecstatic about doing a teleserye again. “Ipapalabas na this August 22. Malapit na yun and excited na ako na bumalik ulit sa primetime. Sana suportahan pa rin ako ng mga tao,” she said.

The 21 year-old who plays the dual role of Jade Dimaguiba and Yuan Sy in My Binondo Girl said she is looking forward to letting viewers see her play both genders. “Ang makikita ng mga tao is yung pagiging bago kong role kasi gaganap ako ng lalake. Masaya yun and exciting for me. Si Direk Malou (Sevilla) kasi inaalalayan niya ako sa mga galaw, sa mga kilos ko and kapag pumu-point yung toes ko, ‘Cut!’ kasi bakit daw pumu-point yung toes ko, ganun. So nakakatuwa mga kasama ko sa taping,” she added.

In My Binondo Girl, Kim will have three leading men, Xian Lim, Matteo Guidicelli, and Jolo Revilla. But the Fil-Chi actress says that she has no other love but her career for now. “Yung first love ko ngayon is my career. Yun muna. Wala na munang ibang love. I’m happy about yung work ko. Parang na-miss ko mag-taping, namiss ko mag-shooting and mahal na mahal ko talaga umarte so masaya ako. Madami rin naman ako projects last year pero para kasing nabakante ako for two or three months, Your Song lang nun so parang na-miss ko everyday uma-acting, every day may work,” she explained.

And although she is currently being linked to La Salle Green Archer basketball player Simon Atkins, Kim said her busy schedule doesn’t allow for her to have a love life at the moment even though she and Simon have been keeping in touch through text messaging. “Minsan din naman nag-te-text din kami pero wala lang. Pero minsan sa isang araw sa sobrang busy ni hindi ko mahawakan yung phone ko, parang ganun. And sobrang busy ngayon, ang daming tapings, shooting, guestings and mga pictorials so wala talagang time,” she admits.

The pretty chinita admits she was surprised to see Simon perform on ASAP Rocks last month when the show featured some players from Ateneo and La Salle. “Hindi kasi talaga siya pupunta. Tinuitukso nila akong lahat pero sabi ko hindi siya pupunta. Kasi close siya sa mga fans ko and yung isang group ng fans ko nagsabi na hindi na talaga makakapunta. And sabi rin naman niya dati hindi siya marunong sumayaw so sabi ko hindi rin siya talaga pupunta,” she recalled. If ever the chance does open up for her to focus on her personal life, Kim is still hesitant to react if she would give Simon the chance to pursue her. “Ayoko sumagot (laughs). nakakahiya. Yun lang (laughs),” she said.
