Enchong Dee denies recording sex video with model Sebastian Castro: “Wala naman akong naaalala na ginawa kong I’m not proud of."

Enchong Dee says he is not offended that his sexual preference is being questioned again. He says what hurts is being suspected of recording a lascivious act. “Na-offend ako na parang ganun ba kababa yung tingin sa akin ng mga tao? Na ganung klase ng tao yung kasama ko sa video scandal?”


Fresh off his family trip abroad, Enchong Dee faced the press yesterday, October 17, at the story conference of his new drama series on ABS-CBN, You’re My Home.

The Kapamilya young actor knocked down stories going around that he can be seen in a cellphone sex video with Philippine-based, Peruvian-Japanese model Sebastian Castro.

Sebastian admitted that he is gay, through a video uploaded on YouTube, last December 2011.

The sex video allegedly involving the actor and the model, which started circulating on the Net two weeks ago, is a ten-second recording of two young males engaging in sexual intercourse.

Enchong categorically denied, via his Twitter account last October 1, being one of the two males in the cellphone recording, but the actor remained keen to express his thoughts on the issue in yesterday’s story conference.

The 24-year-old actor began by stating that he was in Mongolia when he received tweets about the rumored sex video.

“Saktong-sakto nga, kasi sa China, bawal yung Twitter. Tapos pagdating ko sa Mongolia, nag-open siya.

“So, habang tsine-check ko yung Twitter ko, lumabas na yung mga tanong...”

Enchong went on to stress that he is not one to record sexual activities.

“As far as I can remember, hindi ako yung taong klase na mahilig mag-record…”

A scandal, the actor defined, “is something you’re not proud of.”

And as far as this was concerned, Enchong said he has not done anything of late to shame himself.

“Wala naman akong naaalala na ginawa kong I’m not proud of.”

He added that he just laughed off the rumor the second he found out.

“Dinaan ko na lang sa sarcasm!”



OFFENDED. Enchong told the entertainment press, including PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), that he wasn’t offended that his sexual preference was again being questioned via a same-sex scandal.

What truly hurt him, the actor admitted, was being suspected of recording a lascivious act.

“Na-offend ako na, parang, ganun ba kababa yung tingin sa akin ng mga tao?

“Na ganung klase ng tao yung kasama ko sa video scandal?”

He made clear that he does not know the other party involved in the video scandal personally.

What he was pointing out, he said, was, “At the same time, sa mga taong naglalabas [ng video], hindi ko akalain na ganun kababa yung tingin niyo sa akin.”



PEOPLE PUTTING PEOPLE DOWN. Enchong’s parents, the actor revealed, are certain that their son had no hand in the video scandal.

“May tiwala kasi sila Mama sa akin, e.

“Saka sabi ko rin, ‘You don’t have to worry about anything because hindi ako yun. Hindi yun yung anak ninyo,’” Enchong said.

Asked to comment on celebrity sex scandals being uploaded by random individuals, the actor remarked, “Actually, hindi ko rin alam kung saan nanggagaling yung fascination ng mga tao sa scandal.

“But, I guess, it’s a representation of something na, parang, ang tao, gusto makakita ng tao na bumabagsak.

“That’s how I see it. That’s my own opinion.”



YOU’RE MY HOME. But with his work in a new primetime teleserye about to begin, Enchong is ready to put the issue behind him.

You’re My Home, a family drama, stars the young actor with Richard Gomez, Dawn Zulueta, Cherry Pie Picache, Iza Calzado, Shaina Magdayao, Ella Cruz, and Francis Magundayao.

The dramaserye is slated to air in the first quarter of 2014.

The young actor, who is managed by Star Magic and Keren Pascual, said he is happy to be part of ABS-CBN’s latest offering.

“Habang may dumadating na magandang bagay sa atin, hindi mo maaalis na may mga pangit na bagay na rin na dumadating.

“So, ito, isa ito sa mga pambawi sa buhay ko.

"Na dahil ang dami-daming intriga na naglalabasan, siguro ito yung pambawi ng Diyos sa akin, na sinasabi niya, ‘Wag ka mag-alala, meron naman akong regalo sa ’yo!’

“And I’m happy with that gift.”
