KAPAMILYA actress Kim Chiu has said that she can be a girlfriend to actor Xian Lim.
When Lim asked Chiu if she could be his girlfriend, Chiu laughed and said: “Pwede!”
Chiu and screen partner Xian Lim appeared in “Tonight With Boy Abunda” over ABS-CBN to promote their prime-time teleserye “The Story of Us” which started airing last February 29, 2016.
Fans believe that the couple are playing sweet music together. But despite being close to each other, one of showbiz most formidable love teams had repeatedly refused to label their relationship.
Lim, 26, said that given the opportunity to write a book about his relationship with Chiu, he said that the first chapter of the book would focus on their beginnings.
“Ang title is ‘Eternal Love.’ Nasa Chapter One pa lamang kami kasi marami pang dapat malaman ang mga tao sa amin,” the actor said.
Chiu, 25, said that given the same opportunity, the title of her book would be “You and Me.”
“There will be 10 chapters for the book. So far siguro nasa Chapter 4 na kung saan we are getting closer to each other,” Chiu added.
The actress also said that she does not favor long-distance relationship, adding that she wanted to spend more time with her future boyfriend.
“Hindi ako naniniwala sa long-distance relationship. Nasasaktan ako dun, gusto ko nakikita ko sya, nakakasama ko sya,” said Chiu.
The two actors said that they share intimate scenes in their new teleserye. They first appeared together in the series “My Binondo Girl” in 2011.
“More mature ang role namin dito. Ang daming ‘firsts’ sa amin sa teleseryeng ito. Unang teleserye na magkasama kami sa isang mature role, may mga kiss, first time n’yang nahawakan ang hita ko at nag-tatanggal na din sya ng sando dito,” Chiu said.
Lim said: “Mas sanay kami sa mga eksenang nagpapatawa pero hindi sa ganitong role.”
Of their director Richard Somes, Chiu said: “Cool lang sya. First time kaming hawakan ni Direk Richard at ang dami nyang gustong magagandang mangyari sa teleserye.”
In the series, Lim plays Makoy who is a tourist guide in El Nido, Palawan while Chiu takes the role of Tin, his childhood friend. They have shot in Palawan and New York City.
