AFTER what she has been through for the past weeks, young actress Kim Chiu is now being paired up with actor Enchong Dee.

In the latest commercial of a prominent softdrinks brand in the country, many were surprised to see the two together. Some sees an instant chemistry between the two and that they should be given an opportunity to work with each other even in television or movies.

“Open naman kami eh, umiikot naman ang lahat ng artista eh, nago-grow naman at hinding nananatili sa isang kaparehas,” she said. News circulated that Kim and Gerald has a rift after the latter is being linked to Bea Alonzo.

For Enchong, he said there is no problem if he breaks his team-up with Erich Gonzales for Kim. He believes that it is for a greater opportunity for both of them and the management has a last say on everything.

When asked how he feels working with the actress, Enchong said, “I’m privileged na makatrabaho ko sya but as of now eh wala pang final decision.”
