As much as Piolo Pascual would like to avoid questions about his relationship with KC Concepcion off screen, he couldn’t help but share how happy he is to be working with her. When asked how he feels that KC really values his opinion—from the most basic things about acting like discipline and dealing with different kinds of people to deeper questions about life and how to take care of oneself—the dashing actor shared that he also treasures the chance to be there for her every step of the way. “Masaya ako because nagkasama kami sa trabaho and because of work we became closer again. It’s a blessing that we got the chance to work together at mas naging close kami not just professionally but personally. She’s really determined to learn so malaking encouragement sa akin yun to always be there for her.”
Piolo has previously admitted that he has been courting KC. There have been reports that he keeps surprising her with gifts and pasalubongs every now and then. Unfortunately, it’s hard for Piolo to open up about his feelings for the Megastar’s daughter because a lot of people are quick to judge his real intentions. “Kasi po ang nangyari during our separate interviews, siyempre given na kapag may ka-pair ka tinatanong what’s the real score between you. But this time we just decided na magfocus muna kami dito sa show kasi whatever we say it will be cliché already e. Parang magkapartner kayo, pinagmamatch kayo pero pagkatapos ng show wala na… So I think it’s better na chill muna,” he explained.
But when told that KC mentioned in one of her interviews that she has everything a girl could want except a man who truly loves her, Piolo was quick to say that he really wants to be that special person for her. “Of course, she deserves to be with that somebody. She deserves to be with the person na talagang magbibigay sa kanya ng kabuuan ng pagkakababae niya. Whoever that guy will be, that guy is very blessed. Pero sana ako na yun,” he beamed.
There are those who don’t believe that what he feels for KC is real but what’s important to Piolo is that he has gained the trust and approval of her parents. As a matter of fact, Sharon Cuneta recently visited them on the set of Lovers in Paris and even brought Japanese food for the cast and crew. The Megastar had so much fun seeing how well her daughter is adjusting to the challenges of making a soap that she even stayed to watch. “Hindi naman sa binabantayan niya si KC dahil sa akin. I think it was a sweet gesture for her to visit KC on the set tapos nag-stay pa siya. Nakakatuwa lang to have her there,” Piolo stated.
