After renewing her contract with the Kapamilya network for two years, KC Concepcion said she is already excited to start working on her newest assignment as part of the cast of Ikaw Lamang. Aside from that, it seems she is also feeling very much inspired to work because the brewing romance between her and Paulo Avelino seems to be going good again.
The 29-year-old actress said having a love life makes work a whole lot better despite her five-day weekly work schedule because of Ikaw Lamang. “Masarap pero alam mo ngayon lang din ako mag-ma-Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday (laughs) so medyo parang hindi ko pa alam. Medyo nagmamakaawa ako na sana intindihin din ako kung may times na parang mag-aadjust pa ako sa schedule. Sana naman mahanapan ng way na parang makapag-date pa din or makapag-spend ng time with you know kung sinong makakapagpa-happy sa iyo (laughs),” she shared during her contract signing held last July 11 inside the ABS-CBN compound.
Although she and Paulo seemed to have gone their separate ways based on their posts on social media after he visited her apartment in New York, KC said distance is not an issue anymore for them. “Hindi na. Yun naman yung maganda when you’re able to spend time para makilala mo din yung tao ‘di ba? Kami para makilala namin yung isa't isa. Yun yung pinaka-importante sa lahat, yung malaman mo kung paano ba talaga ang isang tao. We're okay. Basta we're okay. Yun lang ang masasabi ko siguro. Okay kami,” she admitted.
In fact, KC revealed that Paulo was sweet enough to plan a day trip for them to Baguio last month which again sparked rumors they were dating again. “Siguro kasi may mga times din na siyempre gusto ko maglakad. Gusto kong maramdaman lang na normal ako ganun. Na hindi ako natatakot na maglakad sa streets of Manila, ganun. And napag-usapan lang namin siguro one time nagplano siyang parampahin ako sa Session road (laughs). Pero day trip yun. Kinabahan ako actually kasi first time ko actually na wala talagang maraming kasama. So yun lang. We're okay. We're both busy. We're both happy with our ABS-CBN projects which is important. Sa time namin ngayon in our lives important yung work,” she said.
KC said that it works for them both that they are both serious about their craft. “It makes us happy. Passion niya yung work. Passion ko rin yung work. Kaya rin kami magkasundo. And right now parang right now kung ano man yung pinagkaka-busy-han namin, we're happy for each other and we're okay,” she admitted.
Which means no matter how busy she is, KC said she will always make time for him. “He makes the effort din naman eh. Na-appreciate ko talaga yun. Basta okay kami. Siyempre siguro din yung nakaka-share kami about yung work, kasi mahirap din kasi pag sobrang wala sa world mo tapos alam mo yun, sobrang dami mong time at uso na binibigay sa trabaho pero hindi din nila maintindihan yun parang i-e-explain mo pa. May mga ganun kasing commonalities na magandang pag-usapan,” she added.
Could Paulo be the reason why she seems to be blooming right now? “Wow (laughs). My new contract with ABS-CBN is the reason why I'm very happy. Hindi kasi pinayagan din akong mag-bakasyon ng slight ‘di ba? Hindi rin siya bakasyon kasi may mga homework din ako everyday. Siguro mga three months ako on-and-off sa New York and then nag-one month ako sa L.A. Pero hindi niyo ako maramdaman na pabalik balik kasi meron akong mga shoot for Boardwalk, for SM Parisian, for Palmolive, so every three weeks pinapauwi nila ako. Kaya pinagsabihan din nila ako na huwag ako masyado matagal umalis and dapat talaga kung mahal ko itong trabaho ko I really have to come back. Sabi ko naman yun naman talaga yung plan. And I was active on social media and at least dun ko nakakausap yung fans ko,” she said.
