KimXi is back.
Titled Always, it is a Philippine adaptation of a hit Korean movie of the same title first released in 2011 starring Korean stars So Ji-sub (Cheol-min) and Han Hyo-joo (Jung-hwa).
Always marks Kim and Xian's return as onscreen couple eight years after they last partnered on the big-screen project Past Tense on 2014.
They wrote in the caption of their post about the movie (published as is), "I see you. I hear you. I love you.
"Watch the OFFICIAL TRAILER of the Philippine adaptation of the hit South Korean movie, 'ALWAYS'. Starring one of the BIGGEST LOVETEAM in the industry, Kim Chui and Xian Lim!"
Kim also shared the same post in her Instagram account, on Saturday September 10.
Her caption read (published as is), "Official full trailer. #Always. After 8 long years #KIMXi is back on the big screen!
"Im happy to be sharing the big screen with you @xianlimm. Thank you to @viva_films for this opportunity to remake a 2011 Korean Movie.
"I feel so excited and at the same time nervous but for now please do enjoy our official trailer."
In the four-minute trailer, their characters are introduced—Kim as the blind woman Anna and Xian as the former boxer Lino.
They have feelings for each other, but just as Anna regains her sight after an operation, she is broken-hearted because Lino is not there by her side as he promised.
Directed by Dado Lumibao and written by Mel Mendoza-Del Rosario, KimXi's Always will premiere on September 28, 2022 in cinemas nationwide.
Other films where Kim and Xian starred together include Bakit Hindi ka Crush ng Crush mo? (2013) and Bride for Rent (2014).
