However, due to travel restrictions amid the pandemic, Carlo wasn’t able to fly to South Korea for filming. The director himself sent the actor a gift back in 2020 and said that he looked forward to working with Carlo in the future. 

No details were shared as to what character he would have took on had he accepted the role in the series. 

Meanwhile, 2022 has been quite a busy year for Carlo. He became part of the Star Magic cast who performed in the Star Magic US Tour last month alongside other Kapamilya satrs. He also took part in the ABS-CBN series How to Move On in 30 Days.

Carlo’s latest project, a film with Julia Barretto titled Expensive Candy, has been making noise on social media for the duo’s chemistry.
