MANILA – Kim Chiu was unable to escape the teasing of her fellow “ASAP” mainstays on Sunday when they talked about how the actress made headlines in US magazines because of her recent online interaction with international pop star Justin Bieber.
Luis Manzano commented that the “Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin” actress can now be considered a “global superstar.”
To which, Chiu replied: “OA 'yung global superstar. Bumati lang naman ako. I am so proud to be a Filipino. See you [Justin Bieber]!”
Hosts Toni Gonzaga and Robi Domingo then chimed in the teasing and said Chiu can now also be considered a Pinoy pride.
Turning a little serious, Manzano asked Chiu where in the Philippines would she bring Bieber in case the singer asks her to show him around.
“Siyempre saan pa ba? Sa pinakamasayang lugar sa buong Pilipinas, sa ‘ASAP,’” Chiu quipped.
Last Tuesday, Chiu found herself shrieking after Bieber picked out her comment from the thousands who tuned in to his live video on Instagram.
Chiu, who goes by the handle "chinitaprincess" in the image-sharing site, wrote that she is a Filipino fan, to which Bieber replied: "Chinita, I will see you in the Philippines."
Bieber will be performing in the Philippines in September. He will be holding a concert at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan as part of his world tour promoting his fourth studio album, "Purpose," which includes the hits "Love Yourself" and "Sorry."
