“Hintay lang tayo nang hintay, huwag tayong nagmamadali,” says Daniel Padilla, directing his message to the fans who reportedly bashed Judy Ann Santos.
Judy Ann's soap Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala will be replaced by Got To Believe In Magic, the young actor's next TV project with Kathryn Bernardo.
Daniel resumes, “Respetuhin po natin yung mga beteranong artista dahil mga idol ho natin sila at napakababait na tao kaya, siguro naman, hindi nila deserved na masabihan nang ganyan, na madaliin ang show nila dahil sino ba naman ako at si Kathryn?”
In a press conference held on August 15, Judy Ann belied speculation that Kathniel’s upcoming series caused the abrupt end of Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala.
She explained, “…yung Got To Believe has nothing to do with my decision and management.”
She admitted, however, that her show may affect the launch date of Daniel and Kathryn’s soap.
She said, "Kung sakali mang nasagasaan ko ang pag-eere ng Got To Believe, I’m really, really sorry. Hindi naman ‘yan ang gusto kong mangyari.
“Para sa mga fans po ni Daniel at ni Kathryn, I’m very sorry for keeping you waiting this long. Next, next week, mapapanood na natin siya.”

In a separate interview, Daniel issued this request to his fans:
“… dapat maghintay lang tayo nang maghintay, hindi naman tayo aabutin ng sampung taon.
“Mga ilang months lang naman o kaya kahit three years pa ‘yan…”
He also underlines his respect for the 35-year-old actress, “E, di ba, si Ms. Judy Ann po ‘yan… kaya huwag po nating sabihan nang ganun o madaliin.
“Maghintay lang po tayo.”
But what can he say about Juday’s remark, “It’s their moment to shine?”
