MANILA – “I am really happy to be back.”
This was Xian Lim’s statement following the announcement of his reunion series with Kim Chiu -- his first since he left Star Magic and transferred to Viva.
Lim said this is also their comeback project with Dreamscape which produced “My Binondo Girl,” his project with Chiu that launched their love team.
“Nakakatuwa lang na we are back in Dreamscape. I think our last Dreamscape project was ‘Binondo Girl’ and then ‘Ina Kapatid Anak’ pa which was years ago. Nakakatuwa lang. This is something for [our supporters] and this is something that we’ve been waiting for,” he said.
Titled “Love Thy Woman,” Lim said the series will tackle a modern family setup, with a complicated love story.
Chiu will be playing the daughter of Sunshine Cruz and Christopher de Leon, while the beginning of the series will see Lim as the fiancé of Erich Gonzales’ character, who happens to be Chiu’s half-sister.
“Nung in-offer sa akin, I’m very proud and happy of course sa Chinese roots ko. Nung sinabi na about sa Filipino-Chinese [family] and ii-introduce siya sa mga tao, mas malalaman pa nila kung ano 'yung kuwento ng traditional Filipino and Chinese so I am very proud,” Chiu said.
When asked if they missed working with each other, Chiu was quick to respond with a resounding yes.
“Oo naman! Nung nag-China kami nung December, sabi namin parang ang sarap gumawa ng [project] na Chinese 'yung story. Nung February, in-offer sa amin ito. Hindi pa niya sinabi sa akin na may meeting pala siya with Dreamscape,” Chiu shared.
While no airing date has been announced yet, Dreamscape already revealed its powerhouse cast which also includes Eula Valdez, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Ruffa Gutierrez and Jennifer Sevilla.
