For reel or real?
Last January 21, Richard Gutierrez and KC Concepcion were spotted sharing a quiet moment at Gerardo's, located in Panay Avenue, Quezon City.
This was actually no extraordinaire—they have an upcoming movie together and they are friends. But seeing the son of Eddie Gutierrez and Annabelle Rama and the daughter of Gabby Concepcion and Sharon Cuneta in what seems to be an "unofficial" (meaning, it's not work-related) night-out, our first impulse is to look for photos. These two are described by showbiz photographers as "mailap," unless they are in a presscon or a shoot.
Luckily, PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) was able to capture some of their unguarded moments. Click here.
It was taken during Richard's birthday dinner, which was attended by the cast of When I Met U, their second movie together, this time for GMA Films and Regal Entertainment.
At around 11:30 p.m., most people had left and, according to an onlooker, "They [Chard and KC] were the only two celebs there... The rest left already, Tonton [Gutierrez], Iya [Villania], and other co-stars..."
And KC and Chard looked like they were having fun talking and making kulitan. PEP agrees with the onlooker: mas kumportable na sila ngayon sa isa't isa, with or without camera.
So, was it a date?
Photographer Jervy Santiago said a certain Elaine, the movie's line producer, told him that it was simply a "moment to unwind a bit and celebrate" because the two haven't had any decent sleep for two weeks.
But whether it was just for hype or it was an unofficial date, Annabelle Rama would probably be delighted to see the photos. In an inteview with 24 Oras, she was upfront in expressing one of her birthday wishes for Richard: "Sana magkatuluyan sila ni KC habang nagshu-shooting sila..."
The prized talent of Kapuso network seconded, "Okay, maganda ang wish niya."
What about KC?
The photos imply, "There might be a chance..." Who knows?
