MANILA - It was the grandest of teases from Enrique Gil, the star of the crime-thriller "Dukot."
"Yes, we are boyfriend and girlfriend," he admitted in an interview on "Tonight with Boy Abunda," referring to his relationship with onscreen partner Liza Soberano.
Only it wasn't true, or at least not yet official.
"We treat each other like boyfriend and girlfriend," Gil explained Tuesday. "That's how we just treat each other. We treat each other like we are so parang ganoon na rin."
However, Gil said they are still waiting for the blessing of their parents.
"Pero siyempre as not to disrespect them. They didn't say anything yet so unless sabihin nila na puwede na --but para sa akin it's the same thing na," he insisted.
But despite his backtrack, that brief moment, that second where Gil and Soberano became a couple, will be one to remember for their supporters. "He's so in love," a fan wrote on Twitter.
