EXCLUSIVE: JK Labajo on Andrea Brillantes: ‘I love working with her’


021316-JKANDREA.jpgAfter getting his first acting break in the remake of Pangako Sa ‘Yo, JK Labajo admitted that he already knows what he wants to do after the series ends on February 12. "I’m just waiting for something new. I want to do more acting. I don’t want to stop singing but I want to continue acting more,” he said.

One of the lessons he’s learned in the show is how it would be like to be in a love team. "Some people say it’s actually better acting on your own. But it would be much better to have someone with you when you act like a love team,” he added.

With JK’s character as the best friend of Andrea Brillantes’s character in Pangako Sa ‘Yo, JK said he and Andrea are becoming really good friends in real life as well. They also post photos of them together on social media which have their fans wondering how close they really are but JK said he is happy if he and Andrea become love team partners for now. "We go out anywhere like sa mall. Being an artist is kind of hard kasi you get money and you get the fame and people knowing you so technically when you’re out in public it’s different form before kasi before I can just go out any time I want. And now sa mga Powerplant mall or Greenhills lang ako nakakapunta, mga ganun. I want to be in a love team. I’m good with Andy being my partner in acting. I love working with her. She’s good,” he explained.

When asked if he considers Andrea as his closest friend in showbiz right now, JK gave an honest answer. “Well she is a girl so it’s kind of hard dealing with her (laughs). Mga closest ko sila Inigo (Pascual), Sophia (Andres), Darren (Espanto) and Andrea is one of them. Darren is probably the closest to me,” he said of his The Voice Kids batchmate.

After admitting his one showbiz crush is Sofia, JK shared how he has managed to now be friends with her. "I just can’t believe it because every time we’re together I’m like, ‘Wow I’m with my crushie' so andun yung kilig factor pero she’s like my ate and I’m her little brother in showbiz. I love it."

With the busy taping schedule in the past for Pangako Sa ‘Yo, JK said he was able to get a lot of rest during the holiday break but that he missed working as well. "Naka-rest naman ako nung Christmas and New Year. Walang magawa sa room. Sa bahay kasi sa labas puro putukan and stuff. And wala ding schedule sa trabaho and hindi rin busy so technically nagkukulong lang sa room (laughs),” he admitted.
