MANILA, Philippines – Although she has a lot of good things to say about British singer Jules Knight, actress KC Concepcion admitted she just wants to take things slow.
Knight is a member of the British band Blake, who recently visited the country to promote the group's album. Knight has been vocal about his admiration for Concepcion and he even publicly knelt down in front of the actress to ask her out for a date.
In an interview with Push.com.ph, Concepcion said it doesn’t necessarily follow that when someone courts a girl, then they must share something romantic right away.
“Just because nanligaw, kailangan siya na, but it’s always nice to let them know [that] you appreciate them. But you’re also not ready, and I told Jules that also,” he said.
Following her controversial relationship with actor Piolo Pascual, Concepcion has made it clear that she is not yet ready get into another relationship.
“But again, he doesn’t even live here so always ‘pag ganon, where I’m coming from, I’m not ready to make effort yet so much kasi I gave so much of myself in the past,” she said.
“For now I said it naman before, he’s a great guy, he’s very sweet. Passionate rin siya. Sabi ko, ‘Jules do you have a temper?’ Sabi niya, ‘It’s not a temper, it’s passion.’ Pero okay, sabi ko, he’s really sweet, he’s really nice but I’m not… I don’t want to pressure myself porke’t siya yung nandyan,” she added.
According to Concepcion, she wants to keep Knight as a friend for now and she also wants to get to know other people.
“I want to get to know friends, I want to make him a friend. Gusto kong malaman na kung ano ang nakikita ko, ‘yun siya, hindi siya ‘yung best foot forward, but I think I appreciate him as a friend for now,” she said.
