Kilala ng mga Pinoy na mahilig sa K-pop ang Korean actor na si Alexander Lee.
Bukod sa dati siyang miyembro ng Korean boy band na U-Kiss, leading man din si Alexander ni Heart Evangelista sa Ko-Pinoserye na My Korean Jagiya ng GMA-7.
Kaya nga raw nito tinanggap ang project ay dahil si Heart ang makakatambal niya.
Lahad ni Alexander, “At first, I didn’t know anything.
"They just said, 'Filipino. A drama project, are you interested?'
“I was doing radio shows, TV shows, having a stable life in Korea. So I was, like, 'Okay, what it is?'
“After I researched and I heard GMA, I was, like, okay.
“Fifty-percent okay, and then, Heart! I’m, like, I definitely have to do it.”
May kissing scene sina Heart at Alexander sa kanilang teleserye.
At nang tanungin ang Korean actor tungkol dito, “Heart is a good kisser.”
Sabi pa niya sa one-take kissing scene nila, “It was magical.”
Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at iba pang entertainment press si Alexander sa presscon ng My Korean Jagiya.
TOO PERFECT. Dati pa raw niyang naririnig ang pangalan ni Heart.
Masayang kuwento ni Alexander, “Yeah, I heard before, she’s famous… Heart is, of course, pretty.
“It was actually one of my classmates before who liked her.
“I have a lot of classmates from international, Thailand, Philippines... and they always talk about Heart.
“So, we researched about Heart and we saw pictures, really pretty.”
Sobrang naa-appreciate din daw ni Alexander si Heart sa pag-aalaga nito sa kanya.
“Heart, she’s too perfect!” sambit niya.
“She’s like a real-life princess, I can say.”
Hindi ba siya na-disappoint na kasal na si Heart kay Senator Chiz Escudero?
“I know, right?” natawang sabi niya.
“But I met Senator Chiz and they’re the perfect pair.”
Natatawang dugtong pa niya, “And when it’s mine coming, I don’t know, I don’t know... pray for me.”
Kaka-celebrate lang ni Alexander ng kanyang 29th birthday at sinorpresa nga raw siya ni Heart sa bahay nito ng isang birthday dinner.
Pagbabahagi niya, “I thought it was just a birthday dinner, but it was a birthday feast!
“Everybody, the cast, her friends came over.
“It was one of my best birthdays, and she really made me feel like [it was] my home.
“That’s what she did and I’m really thankful about it.”
PICKY NO MORE. Posible kaya siyang ma-in love sa isang Filipina?
“Yeah, when I was younger, I was very picky. That’s why I’ve been single, and I regret.
“But now, I get older, of course, I still consider good looks.
“But it’s more on heart and personality, and Filipinos have good characteristics.”
Ang huling relasyon daw niya ay bago pa siya maging miyembro ng U-Kiss.
“I’m a workaholic,” saad niya, “I put so much time.
“I believe in having a stable income, stable job before having commitment or commit to a relationship.”
