One of the industry’s most versatile actors, RK Bagatsing, visited the Tonight With Boy Abunda studio on Friday, August 23 and talked about his new movie “Cuddle Weather” and clarify the real score between him and Jane Oineza.
RK, who reveals his full name, Ramon Kino, is currently a cast member of Nang Ngumiti ang Langit alongside Sophia Reola. He admitted that he had second thoughts about accepting the father role in the show and even consulted Star Magic if it’s the right project for him.
“As an actor, I want to portray my characters as truthful as possible,” he said, adding wasn’t certain if he could portray a father on screen since he isn’t a father in real life. But he stressed that the directors and writers of the show helped him internalize and understand his character better.
“Mahilig ako sa kids eh,” he revealed, saying that portarying a father on screen makes him want to have kids of his own sometime in the near future. He shared that the kids in the show usually play with him on breaks in between their scenes. He added that he’d want four kids if ever given the chance to be a father someday.
RK recalled his audition for a gay role in “Slumber Party” back in 2013. He shared that it was his first lead in any film during that time. He said that he thought that the film was about three women and one leading man but he was surprised to see drag queens on set.
Boy Abunda challenged RK to show everyone what he did in the audition that made him stand out among the rest. The King Of Talk gave him the situation of a gay beauty queen who are discouraged by everyone to join pageants because they were jealous of her beauty and potential and he slayed the “screen test” effortlessly. They even asked him to do the famous Lava Walk of Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray.
RK also stars in the movie “Cuddle Weather” with Sue Ramirez that is an official entry for the Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino 2019. It tells the story of two sex workers who agree to become cuddle partners. RK shared that the director of the movie, Rod Marmol, wanted to show that sex workers deserve to have happy endings too.
Tito Boy then asked RK to teach him how to cuddle properly. First, he demonstrated the cuddle position where your partner’s head is on your chest. The advantage of this position is that your partner can hear the beating of your heart thus, making the position very romantic. Next, he showed the cuddle position ideal for partners who haven’t seen each other for a long time. This postion now includes legs wrapped around the frame of each other’s bodies. This position makes it easier for you to kiss your partner on their forehead. Lastly, he demonstrated the big spoon and little spoon cuddle position where one hugs the other from the back.
RK revealed that he only cuddles with his pillows at night due to his hectic schedule at the moment. He said that he doesn’t understand why Jane Oineza is being linked to him romantically, but guessed it was because “I was her first on-screen partner na na-kiss niya.” He also shared that Jane’s fans loved their pairing on Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Araw Gabi too much and resulted to shipping them as a couple in real life. He also clarified that his closeness with Shaina Magdayao is due to her warmth and friendiness on set. But he denied that their off-screen relationship is coming true to life.
