Kris Aquino visited Gabby Concepcion on his first day of shooting for their Metro Manila Film Festival 2019 entry, (K)ampon.
Kris shared this through her vlog post on August 13, 2019.
When Kris approached Gabby, she told viewers, "I'm not part of the scene but I had to come just to say thank you. Wala pong malisya yan, ha, yung mga ShaGab fans, huwag kayong magalit sa akin.
"I just had to say thank you dahil talagang this movie would not be happening had he not said yes."
ShaGab is the fandom of Gabby and Sharon Cuneta's love team.
It may be recalled that Derek Ramsay was supposed to be Kris's leading man, but the actor chose to prioritize his GMA-7 prime-time series, The Better Woman.
Kris also told Gabby that she watches his current series, Love You Two, which he is still finishing at the moment.
She added that she got hooked on Gabby's previous show with Sunshine Dizon, Ika-6 Na Utos, which earned high ratings on GMA-7's afternoon slot.
"The one we really made subaybay was Ika-6 Na Utos. They were really obsessed.
"Nag-relate ako doon kasi naintindihan ko din naman talaga na ang mga lalaki, minsan may kahinahan sa tukso. Parang ikaw!"
Gabby replied to Kris's joke by saying, "Marami akong role na nagagawang ganun kaya sanay na ako!"
Kris then shared her thoughts about Ika-6 Na Utos, which tackled the story of Emma (Sunshine) and her cuckolding husband, Rome (Gabby).
Kris said, "I would also think na it takes two to tango. Pwede naman may manukso pero it's up to you kung tatanggi ka o hindi."
Kris then dropped a few hints about her MMFF 2019 entry with Gabby.
She told her leading man, "What was it knowing na you fooled around here, ha. That's the whole story, ha. The whole premise of this movie is nagkamali ka, may nabuo, nag-suffer ako."
Gabby said, "May nangyari kasi prior to us actually. So, of course, hindi ko naman alam na nabuo. That was before us.
"So noong nagkita na tayo, hindi ko alam na nabuo. Pero I think there's gonna be some changes but it's gotta be interesting."
Kris then revealed why she decided to accept the movie.
"Ako naman kasi, without revealing too much, I would like to make it clear that what attracted me to this is that sometimes, in marriage, you also develop a friendship.
"Kasi sometimes, ang dalas kasi nating naririnig na we're together because of the kids. But sometimes, you do say together because best friends na kayo and I think yun yung naging relationship ni Clark at ni Grace.
"At yun din ang mata-tackle natin dito na there are many forms of love and there are many types of marriages.
"But along the way, kaya nga siya tinawag na (K)ampon at kaya nga naging horror ito dahil malalaman ninyo kung ano yung pinagdaanan at pinagbayaran nilang dalawa nang dahil sa isang gabing pagkakamali. Kaya warning na yan sa inyong mga lalaki!"
Gabby added, "Parang yung Ika-6 Na Utos lang, may mga pagkakamali, yun ang horror doon."
Kris remarked again about Ika-6 Na Utos, "It was so unfair what you did when you were in... was that in Tagaytay, whatever, then she suddenly showed up!"
Kris was referring to Georgia, the mistress character played by Ryza Cenon.
Kris continued, "Galit na galit ako doon talaga kasi she was so kawawa iniwan mo tapos you went off to meet someone else. Nanggigil lang ako doon talaga kasi kawawa, e, di ba, si Sunshine!"
In that Ika-6 Na Utos scene, Emma and Rome were celebrating their anniversary when Georgia showed up at the venue, and secretly made love with Rome while Emma was left alone in the room.
Gabby then asked Kris, "Bakit sila nakaka-relate?"
Kris answered, "Kasi may nagmamahal talaga ng totoo and you know why you became so lovable, because you loved her even when she wasn't attractive, tapos niloko mo kaya na-hurt ako!"
In the beginning of Ika-6 Na Utos, Emma looked "manang" and was overweight but the dashing Rome still loved her unconditionally, until the mistress entered their lives.
Gabby teased Kris by saying that she could relate to Sunshine's character who is someone plain-looking and transforms into a sexier and more confident woman.
He said, "Nakaka-relate ka dahil sa role ni Sunshine."
Kris retorted, "I've always been attractive!
"Gabby, nagandahan ka sa akin at some point in your life.
"At some point in your life, nagandahan ka sa akin in the past."
Gabby then pointed out that an old photo of him and Kris on a date have become viral recently.
She pointed out that the photo came from Lolit Solis, the former manager of Gabby.
Kris revealed that her date with Gabby happened in 1990.
The photo that they were referring to was posted in the Instagram account of Lolit Solis.
Back then, Kris and Gabby were in a relationship, revealed Lolit.
The couple wanted to go on a date in the Anilao, Batangas beach house of Gabby. However, Cory Aquino, the mother of Kris, would not allow it so the young woman pretended that she needed to go to Anilao for a taping.
Here's the caption written by Lolit Solis in her Instagram account (published as is):
"Alam n'yo bigla ko naalala Kris at Gabby sa photo na ito kalokah. Si Kris ang favorite loveteam niya ay Sharon/Gabby kaya siguro crush na crush niya si Gabby noon pa so pagpasok niya ng showbiz kilig-kiligan siya.
"Nakakatawa, isang incident noon presidente pa si Tita Cory medyo ek ek boyfriend girlfriend silang dalawa at naisip nila ng mag-date sa Anilao Batangas, sa beachouse Gabby.
"Of course hindi papayag si tita Cory. So ang ginawa ni Tetay nagpaalam sa mommy niya na may taping siya sa Anilao.
"Bongga, nag ocular dun ang PSG, nag aerial inspection pa the night before. So araw ng date, punta na si Kris with matching 16 PSG, mga alalay, friends at personal cook. Bongga di bah! Ito na, oras ng uwian sabi ng personal cook ni tita Cory "sumbong kita mommy mo wala naman palang taping nagkita lang kayo Gabby dito."
"Hah hah hah. sagot Kris "magsumbong ka mas maniniwala sa akin si mommy noh." O di ba bata pa si Kris maabilidad na at kahit bantayan pa 16 PSG lusot siya. kalokah talaga si Tetay hah hah."
