Actress Angel Locsin revealed that her birthday gift to her boyfriend, actor and host Luis Manzano, was a pair of Korean shoes. Manzano just turned 28 years old Tuesday, April 21.

Locsin, who is busy promoting and taping for her upcoming television series "Only You" with Diether Ocampo and Sam Milby, said that she bought the shoes while she was in Korea taping for the said series.

"Sapatos alam niyo naman 'yon ang weakness n'ya shoes. Shoes na talagang hinanap ko at sumakit talaga ang paa ko at hinanap ko. Sneakers [iyon at] hinanap ko talaga," she said.

Aside from shoes, Locsin shared that a dinner with Manzano is also in the works for the actor's birthday celebration.

Locsin, whose birthday comes two days after Manzano's said that she will also take time to spend her special day on April 23 with her boyfriend.

"Siguro dadalaw lang kasi 'yong [April] 22 talaga ay nasa Only You ako nag-te-taping. Sa [April] 23 naman ay may event akong gagawin so wala talagang time to celebrate. Okay naman, marami pa ding birthdays na darating basta importante doon sa araw na 'yon ay nagkasama din kami, magkakasama din kami," she said.

Manzano is set to fly to New York to film "In My Life" with actor John Lloyd Cruz and Star for All Seasons Batangas governor Vilma Santos.

Right now, Locsin said other things are also making her happy including her latest project "Only You."

"Sobrang happy ako kasi ito na, trabaho na ulit. Super excited ako kasi dahil iba naman ito dahil nasanay ako sa mga fantaserye 'yong 'Lobo' and 'Love Me Again' [na] drama naman. Ito may bago, parang nakaka-challenge di ba? Iba naman 'yong approach," she said.
 
She added: "Kailangan very light, dahil recession tayo ngayon at kailangan nating aliwin ang mga tao, tulungan natin silang makalimutan pansamantala ang mga problema."

"Only You" is a story of three people's search for happiness, a search which will change their lives.
