MANILA – When actress Kim Chiu recently figured in an accident that left her with a bloodied nose, among the ones she immediately called up was her leading man Xian Lim.
This amid speculations about their current status after Lim was quoted as saying that he is “single but ready to mingle.”
In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Monday, Lim said he was really worried when he got the call.
“Nung nangyari po 'yun, naka-receive ako ng tawag kaagad sa kanya. Sobrang worried siya. Sabi ko ‘Anong nangyari?’ Hindi siya makapagsalita,” he recalled.
Last week, it was reported that the 24-year-old actress was sleeping in her car when she was thrown face first into the front seat, when her driver made a sudden stop.
Lim said Chiu remains special to him and that he finds it flattering that the actress thought to give him a call after the accident.
The actor also said he was “misinterpreted” when he was quoted about their status.
“Hindi naman po naaapektuhan 'yung pagsasama namin ni Kim. Tinanong lang ako ng status and sinagot ko lang naman. It was very in passing lang naman. I don't mean to be negative 'yung single and ready to mingle. Positive po lahat 'yun,” he clarified.
As proof that he still considers Chiu special, Lim talked about the surprise party which he mounted for Chiu while they were in the United States.
Chiu welcomed her 24th birthday in San Francisco last April 19.
“It always feels good to make someone happy. Nakakatawa kasi nung nakita niya 'yung balloon and cake, nandoon pa rin 'yung presyo. Pero okay naman, natawa siya. It was successful,” he said.
