Kim Chiu could not have been any prouder about her love team partner after Xian Lim’s recently concluded sold-out concert titled A Date with Xian at the KIA Theater.
“Grabe, lahat ng kaya niyang gawin at akala ng tao na hindi niya kayang gawin, ipinakita niya tonight,” said Kim in an interview after the concert.
Kim especially lauded the versatility shown by her The Story of Us leading man which ranged “from pop to rock to classical to lyrical to hip-hop to novelty.”
Kim specifically described Xian as “all-in-one” which is what his concert proved to his doubters.
“A lot of people doubt na hindi niya kaya. Parang wala namang tao na hindi kayang gawin, try lang nila,” she said, even adding that Xian is an “underrated” star.
She added, “Gustong-gusto niya ito, hindi siya napapagod. Rehearsals sa umaga, kanta, kanta, sayaw-sayaw, sayaw.”
But Kim did not deny that there were moments prior to the concert that Xian himself somehow doubted if he could pull off his first-ever major concert.
“Sabi ko, 'Maraming tao kasi nagbayad sila sa ticket mo.' “Di naman siya mall show na sana mamaya, ganun,” she said.
In the end, Kim was very happy that their fans made Xian’s dream come true just a few days before he turned 27.
“Nakakatuwa, nakaka-proud na ang daming tao. ‘Yung audience, sobrang lively, yung ganun. May mga lumipad from ibang bansa kahit bumabagyo. May mga nag-uwian pa from Singapore, from U.S.,” she said.
Kim’s pride in Xian’s latest achievement was never even dulled by the fact that he stole a kiss from her.
“Okay lang! Nagulat ako, wala, wala na akong magawa eh,” she said, adding that, “Okay lang, gift ko na sa kanya, sa dami ba naman ng ginawa niya today.”
