Kim Chiu feels sad that Justin Bieber will no longer be performing in the Philippines.
However, she understands that he has his own reasons for cancelling the remainder of his Purpose world tour.
"Hindi lang naman ako iyong nalungkot. Madami ang nalungkot," the actress told ABS-CBN News in a recent interview.
"Pero siyempre, isa siyang Hollywood star so choice nila iyon. ...Next time na lang kapag ganahan na siya ulit mag-tour."
The Kapamilya actress was also quoted as saying that Justin has the "right" to take a rest.
Kim already had plans to watch his concert in Hong Kong since the supposed September 30 concert at the Philippine Arena coincided with the schedule of the Star Magic Ball.
"Sobra ko talaga ni-look forward iyong pagdating ni Justin. Kahit hindi niya ako
pansinin, mapanood ko lang siya ay okay na ako. ...Pero okay lang, let's all move on," she said.
Justin previously gave a shoutout to Kim through an Instagram Live video. He told the Filipina actress who uses the handle chinitaprincess: "Chinita, I will see you in the Philippines."
For this reason, Kim got featured in the American websites Teen Vogue andInStyle.
In a video interview with SplashNews, Justin commented on the cancellation by simply stating, “I’ve been on tour for two years!"
He added that he was looking forward to gettingsome rest and relaxation. "We're gonna ride some bikes," he said with a smile.
For the past 16 months, Justin has been on tour for his 2015 album Purpose. The Canadian pop superstar performed 150 shows in 6 continents before cancelling the remaining dates due to "unforeseen circumstances."
Justin's manager, Scooter Braun, pointed out that the primary consideration for cancelling the world tour was to safeguard the "soul and well-being" of Justin.
In his Instagram account, Scooter wrote:
"To the promoters who believed around the world thank you. To the fans from all over the world who took part over the last 16 months over 6 continents thank you. To Justin who gave it his all night after night thank you.
"To those that won’t be able to see it…on behalf of myself, Justin, and the team, we are sorry.
"That was never our intent. But a man’s soul and well-being I truly care about came first and we must all respect and honor that. Justin will be back and I know he looks forward to performing for you and with you all again."
"One chapter ends and another begins. Thank you again."
According to concert promoter MMI Live, those who bought tickets could get refunds starting Friday, July 28.
