Is Kim Chiu willing to shoot a kissing scene with another girl for her upcoming TV series, My Binondo Girl? Kim hesitated a bit before answering, "Sa ikagaganda ng show na ito, bakit naman po hindi? Napanindigan ko nang maging lalaki. Role lang naman ito saka okay naman ako para sa ikagaganda ng show."

It takes one hour to transform the kikay and bubbly Kim Chiu into the short-haired guy that she portrays in ABS-CBN's upcoming primetime series, My Binondo Girl.

Her long hair is hidden under a wig, she wears a mustache, and she slouches most of the time.

Kim recently spent a week in Hong Kong to shoot scenes of the show with her two other leading men, Matteo Guidicelli and Xian Lim.

The actress admitted that in Hong Kong, some people even mistook her for a real guy.

During her solo press conference held earlier today, August 11, at the Choi Garden along Annapolis St. in Greenhills, she told the press: "Hindi pa kami nag-eeksena, nagse-set up pa lang kami, e, sa Hong Kong kahawig ko sila.

"Parang Korean look, Chinese, at tumitingin ako sa mga tiangge at tinitingnan ako ng mga babae, nakatitig sila sa akin.

"Sabi ko, iniisip nila na lalaki talaga ako. Nagpapa-pogi ako pag tumitingin sa kanila."

She also narrated the incident involving a guy who wanted to burn her mustache while she was in Hong Kong.

"Nakapang-daily outfit na ako noon at nakababa ang buhok ko. Pero may bigote ako kasi lunch break lang namin nun at tumitingin lang ako sa tiangge.

"May Arabo na nagbebenta na parang weird para sa kanila na ang babae may bigote.

"Nakatingin siya sa akin na matagal hanggang sa lumapit siya, hindi niya yata matiis na ang kapal-kapal ng bigote ko.

"Lumapit siya para sunugin niya, tapos sumigaw ako at tumakbo palayo!"

Kim then explained why she had to pretend to be a guy in this teleserye.

"Ako po rito si Jade, and Yuan kapag lalaki.

"[Si Jade] anak siya na babae na naglo-long ng pagmamahal ng isang tatay kasi bata pa siya, lumaki siya na walang tatay.
