Exes Kim Chiu, Gerald Anderson to reunite in new TV project
MANILA, Philippines – Exes Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson are going to star in a new TV project together! The two will lead the cast of a new drama entitled Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin.
Dreamscape announced the news on Monday, October 24. The cast also includes Jake Cuenca, Coleen Garcia, Ayen Munji-Laurel, Bong Loyzaga, and Helen Gamboa-Sotto.
In an interview with press, Gerald was asked what's he looking forward to with his reunion with Kim.
"Na-eexcite ako makita 'yung uli niya... I'm sure hanggang ngayon ganun pa rin siya, sobra niyang mahal 'yung trabaho niya. 'Yung dedication niya mas para nga minsan dati mas masaya pa siya sa taping kaysa nasa labas. Talaga iyon 'yung outlet niya," Gerald said.
(I'm very excited to see... I'm sure up to now she's still like that, she loves her work so much. Her dedication is something, sometimes she's much happier at tapings than going out. That's her outlet.)
Meanwhile, in a report from Pep, Kim admitted she was initially reluctant to accept the project.
"Siyempre 'pag um-oo at ako humindi, may reaction ang mga tao," she said. (Of course if it were a yes and then I say no, people will react.)
"Kung aanuhin ang issue noon, ang luma na nun. (The issue in the past, that's so old.)
"Kinakabahan ako sa mga sasabihin ng mga tao," she said. (I'm nervous about what people will say.)
Meanwhile, according to a report from ABS-CBN, Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin will revolve around 3 triathletes of very different backgrounds. Other details have yet to be announced.
Kim and Gerald last worked together in the movie 24/7 in Love in 2012. After their breakup, Gerald started dating Maja Salvador, which became an issue for Kim as she was close to Maja. All 3 have since moved on. Gerald and Maja broke up last year. (READ: Kim Chiu on Maja, Gerald issue: Why hold a grudge?)
