We are enthralled with the blossoming friendship of Jia Wong (Kim Chiu), and her boss turned business partner Richie Tan (Richard Juan) in Love Thy Woman.
And the character Richie has garnered much attention because of his mesmerizing, well-chiseled looks that can compare to Asia’s top stars. Definitely, the actor playing Richie, the Filipino-Chinese actor Richard Juan certainly deserves all the raves of his brewing onscreen chemistry with Kim on the show.
Richard was born in the Philippines yet grew up in Hong Kong, where he finished his primary and secondary studies, then returned to the country, where he finished his degree in Broadcast Communications at UP Diliman.
While studying, Richard created so much buzz on campus with his “oppa” features and this landed him modeling stints left and right and did shoots for print publications. Called a certified “campus hottie,” Richard would win a TV talent contest among Fil-foreigners that started his showbiz career.
In 2015, Richard would then become the “Charming Chinito ng Paranaque” in Pinoy Big Brother 737, wherein he landed sixth overall. He would then host the sports program Upfront at the UAAP in ABS-CBN Sports and Action in Season 78.
Richard would then begin stints in acting in other networks and was commended for his performances. He would return to TV this year as part of Love Thy Woman.
As we can see in these photos, Richard is definitely that charmer to watch out for—one who could dominate the scene very soon.
Catch Richard on Love Thy Woman on Kapamilya Gold.
