Luis Manzano even had his own funny tweet about Jerry's photo.
Together with Jerry's photo, Luis posted his own topless photo in a bathtub.

Here are some tweets of netizens gushing over Jerry.
Jerry first became popular in the Philippines when ABS-CBN acquired the airing rights of the Taiwanese drama Meteor Garden in 2003.
The series had such a phenomenal run in the Philippines that Jerry and his co-stars, including Barbie Hsu (as Shan Cai) and Vic Chou (as Hua Ze Lei), were invited to visit the Philippines several times.
In Count Your Lucky Stars, Jerry is paired with Shen Yue, the actress who played Shan Cai in the Chinese remake of Meteor Garden in 2018.
