Kim Chiu is excited to play the young Chinese girl in ABS-CBN’s upcoming primetime series Binondo Girl.
The 20-year-old actress said playing the lead character will give her a way to show Chinese culture and traditions to Pinoy audiences.
"Kakaibang experience," said Kim about her role. "As a Chinese, maipapakita ko sa kapwa ko ’yong mga totoong ginagawa sa family, sa love, sa negosyo, makikita nila."
Aside from giving a glimpse to a typical Chinese life, this TV show will also depict a complicated love story.
She further described, "Maganda siya, nakaka-excite, maraming twist na mangyayari. Nandoon na lahat ng emosyon—kung gusto mo matawa, gusto mong maiyak, gusto mong ma-in love, and marami ka ring matutunan.
"Parang ma-apply mo rin siya sa sarili mong buhay dahil ang kwento nito para siyang babae na lumalaban. Kahit maraming nang nangyari sa buhay niya, lumalaban pa rin siya para mapatunayan niya sa sarili niya na kaya niya."
On Binondo Girl, Kim will be paired with fellow young actors: Matteo Guidicelli, Xian Lim, and Jolo Revilla.
This will also be a reunion for Kim and Queen of Comedy Ai-Ai delas Alas, whom she worked with in Your Song Presents Maling Akala; and Cherry Pie Picache, who was her co-star in Tayong Dalawa.
"Ang sarap ng feeling kasi ’yong mga kasama ko magagaling. Parang ako, nai-inspire na galingan ko pa," Kim said about the working with these two award-winning actresses again.
She’s also looking forward to bonding with the other cast members of Binondo Girl. Kim added, "Siguro parang magiging pamilya kami sa taping, magtutulungan."
