John Prats was surprised upon reading in PEP (Philippine EntertainmentPortal) that Shaina would choose love over power when asked about it during thepress conference of her newest show Komiks Presents: Mars Ravelo's Dragonna.
As Dragonna, she will lose her power when she starts tofalls in love with someone. In real life, Shaina chooses love because, "Mas powerful naman ang love."
John, who played the komiks character named Tiny Tony,commented, "Sweet naman no'n. Na-flatter naman ako doon, hindi ako ready doon. Love over power, masaya, magandang comment'yon, a. Pero siguro ako rin."
The young actor, whose feelings towards his co-dancerstarted when their dance group called Ultimate Dance 4 was formed, also agreedthat Shaina is a passionate lady, particularly when she's working.
He described, "Sobrang [passionate], 'yong Lobo palang na ginawa niya. Ako kasi nasaksihan ko 'yon na grabe ang preparation niya,lahat ginagawa niya—nagyo-yoga pa 'yon bago mag-start ang Dragonna. Kasidaw para maganda ang costume sa kanya. Ganun siya sa lahat ng ginagawa niya, very passionate."
As a person, John described Shaina as someone who is: "Verythoughtful siya, e. Lagi niyangtinatanong kung ano'ng gusto ko kapag nasa ASAP kami. Very passionate siya sa lahat ng bagay."
John was glad that Shaina has started to express her feelings more openly. "Well, nakaka-flatter,"he said. "Ako naman, siyempre, kungkelan ready 'yong babae, doon lang ako sumusuporta. I don't wanna force her na gawin ang isang bagay."
The Parekoy actor continued, "Now that she's reallycomfortable with it, well, masaya. Masaya...well, siguro dahil na rin I'm open with the family na rin andokey naman at saka wala naman silang nakikitang negative na nangyayari ormasama akong ginagawa. As long asgano'n, mas masaya, di ba? Mas happy!"
Although both said they are not yet into a relationship, John admittedthat he enjoys Shaina's company.
"Hindi naman namin napag-uusapan, e. Siguro alam lang namin na may mutualunderstanding, na there's something talaga. Gano'n lang pero wala kaming napag-uusapan. Kasi mas less pressure at saka mas nag-e-enjoy talaga kami."
In her past interview with PEP, Shaina said that she still needsmore time to know more about John before she enters a romatic relationshipwith him. Is John willing to wait?
John replied, "Actually, wala na ako sa point na naghihintayako, e. I'm really enjoying it now andwala akong pressure, hindi ko siya pine-pressure, enjoy na enjoy lang kami."
Aside from his newest TV show Parekoy, which will premiereon Monday afternoon, John will also be able to work with Shaina in KomiksPresents: Sanglakas. The show isthe pinoy version of Justice League that features Mars Ravelo's komikscreations.
