Xian Lim clarified that he and Kim Chiu are not officially a couple yet.
This was despite the Kapamilya actor's public declaration of his love for Kim at her recently-concluded concert.
“Wala pa rin, e,” said Xian when asked if things have changed since he said 'I love you' to Kim.
He added, smiling, “Balitaan ko kayo pag may nagbago na.”
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) caught up with Xian after the grand finals of Century Tuna Superbods Nation 2016, held at the Palace Pool Club in Taguig City, Sunday night, April 10.
But even though they are not in a relationship, Xian told PEP and other entertainment reporters that what he said about Kim is real.
“Oo naman, sabi ko nga sa kanya na, 'Anytime you need anyone, anytime you need someone to cry on, someone to talk to, I am here,' yun lang.”
After almost five years of being a love team, Xian said that he doesn’t feel pressured by other people’s expectation for him and Kim to be a couple.
“Wala naman, wala namang ganun [pressure]. It’s just that parang there’s always a proper time and place [for everything].”
More than their sweet moments onstage, Xian was just proud of how Kim worked so hard to make her concert a success.
“Ang galing niya kasi mag-isip ng concept.
“So, lahat, from opening to closing, siya nag-isip.
“Parang maya’t maya, yun lang nasa isip niya, so I’m so proud of her.
“Moral support lang ako, ‘Galing mo! Kaya mo ‘yan!”
In the meantime, Xian is looking forward to his work-related trip to New York with Kim.
“Kasi ngayon, dire-diretso taping namin ng The Story of Us…
“We have a flight to New York, and we’re gonna be there for two weeks."
