Before Kim Chiu’s new masterpiece One Great Love officially hits the silver screen on Tuesday, the media gathered to catch their first glimpse on the film in an exclusive press preview held in Manila last week.
One of the TV host-actress’ special guests was her dad, William Chiu, who came all the way from Mindoro just so he could support his daughter.
In one of her latest Instagram posts, Kim shared that it was her first time to see her dad cry so hard for a film.
“Papa approved! First time to see maga eyes ng papa ko. ‘Pagkatapos niya manood ng movie ko, [he] hugged me and said, ‘Iba ka dito!’ Thank you, Pa, for flying all the way from Mindoro just to watch the press preview of One Great Love. Sa sobrang excited niya gusto niya bukas na showing!” said the 28-year-old celebrity.
