Kim Chiu says she'd rather focus on acting and her career.
Now 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
‘Cut!’ kasi bakit daw pumu-
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-
-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
and yung isang
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.
