Pierre Emmanuel Plassart and KC Concepcion
MANILA, Philippines -- Actress-host KC Concepcion feels she is not yet ready to walk down the aisle and has asked her suitor, French filmmaker Pierre Emmanuel Plassart, for some "space."

"Husband material na nga 'yung taong 'yon, kaya lang hindi pa ako ready, kaya nag-setback muna ako," Concepcion told ABS-CBNnews.com on Thursday during her contract renewal with ABS-CBN.

"Siya 'yung tipong settling down type na, alam mo 'yon? Wala pa ako sa level na 'yon and I'd been very honest with him about it," she added.

But Concepcion clarified that she hasn't turned down Plassart.

"Hindi naman basted -- ang sakit naman noon kasi nag-uusap pa din kami. It's just that he knows na I need time, he needs time. At sabi ko kilala ko ang sarili ko na kung gusto kong tuldukan ang relationship, totally tuldok na talaga 'yon. And I told him we don't know what is going to happen in the future. Sabi ko, 'You are still the guy that I want to end up with,'" she explained.

"Nasa kanya na lahat ng hinahanap ko except sa wala pa ako sa level na ready na akong mag-settle down. Kaka-sign ko nga lang ng contract sa ABS-CBN, sandali lang, space lang. Anyway he is busy din with his business. We talk pa din o kaya nagte-text pa din kami. I check kung kamusta na siya at kinakamusta niya ako. Siguro napakalalim na din ng friendship namin para sabihing hanggang doon lang," she said.

Still a Kapamilya

Meanwhile, Concepcion said she is glad to continue working with the Kapamilya network.

"I'm really happy na nag-stay ako as Kapamilya. Kasi kung tutuusin ay dito naman ako lumaki. Kahit behind the scenes ako before, siyempre it feels happy na binalik ako, na minintain nila ang contract ko and that makes me happy," she said.

Aside from the series "Against All Odds" with Judy Ann Santos, Concepcion announced that she's also set to do a hosting job.

"Siguro doon sa mga nag-re-request, nagti-tweet, sa akin about hosting, ito na marami na tayong hosting projects," she said.

"And, of course, I'm looking forward sa lots more na I can do dito sa showbiz. Habang nandito tayo, siyempre, we want to explore at kilala niyo ako I want to explore new things. So that's one thing that will keep me here in the Philippines, itong kontrata ko with ABS-CBN," Concepcion said.

Last year, Concepcion hosted "The X Factor Philippines" on ABS-CBN.
