Joem answered, "Hindi naman po sa ayaw [ng girlfriend fromshowbiz]. Siguro wala lang mahanap kasiang dami nilang work palagi, e, so wala akong mahanap na available ang timenila para lumabas o manood ng sine. Sobrangbusy, ang daming work.
"For me, non-showbiz or showbiz, okay lang. Kasi wala pa ako yung personally na talagangnagiging ka-close, na sobrang kakilala ko. Hindi ko naman pine-prefer kung showbiz or non-showbiz, basta mabait."
In showbiz, Joem said, he is attracted to busy youngactresses like Anne Curtis and Roxanne Guinoo.

Joem, who plays John in Patayin sa Sindak si Barbara,explained that he did not join the said contest to become a popularboxer. "Kasi, for me, sumaliako kasi hindi ko naman iniisip na makilala ako as brusko. Siguro talagang sumali ako ng Mano Manoto box kasi, yun nga, talagang love na love ko yung boxing."
Does he intend to pursue a boxing career?
Joem ended with, "Hindi siguro, parang activity lang. Walaakong balak maging amateur boxer."
