In an interview with Push.com.ph during the cast pictorial for his new TV series “Kahit Puso’y Masugatan,” Cuenca said he does not want to rush things and will just wait for the right moment as both of them are currently focused on their careers.

“Sa ngayon, 'yung focus ko talaga nasa trabaho. Siya din ang daming magandang nangyayari sa kanya. Basta kapag handa na ako to open up, I will. Sa ngayon I’m blessed, inspired and happy. Ibalato ni’yo na muna sa akin,” he said.

Cuenca and Poe have been consistently linked after they were paired in a movie last year.

Cuenca’s last relationship was with actress Melissa Ricks while Poe’s last boyfriend was former Ilocos Sur Rep. Ronald Singson.

Cuenca gushed that everything about Poe is special.

“Sa akin, walang kaduda-duda na she’s a very amazing person. 'Yung kagandahan niya… she’s a beautiful person inside and out. Hindi lang physical, pero pati yung personality niya napakakulay at napakaganda,” he said.
