Xian Lim kisses Kim Chiu. -- Photo grab from 'Ina Kapatid Anak.'
MANILA, Philippines -- Actor Xian Lim on Thursday shrugged off a viral photo showing him and leading lady Kim Chiu French kissing that has been circulating on the Internet.
The camp of Chiu has already branded the photo, supposedly a scene from the soap "Ina Kapatid Anak" which aired last Tuesday, as fake.
Lim, who described himself as an active netizen, admitted that he has already seen the controversial photo.
"We can't really please everyone. It is really up to them," Lim told reporters on Wednesday during the launching of Promil's I-Shine Talent Camp 2, which will premiere on June 8 before "Be Careful With My Heart Rewind" on ABS-CBN. "We are in this business and they have all the right."
Asked to comment about fans of Chiu who found the photo offensive, Lim said: "wWen it comes to mababastos si Kim, they shouldn't jump to conclusions. Tanungin muna nila si Kim kung nabastos siya."
Lim reiterated that he and Chiu are enjoying each other's company.
"We are good lalo na na nagkikita kami everyday because we are doing shows. We are doing out of town shows, then the show, then the movie," he said.
