In a special episode of TWBA, Kim Chiu and JC De Vera dropped by to promote their 2018 MMFF entry “One Great Love.” The film revolved around the love triangle of their respective characters Zyra and Carl along with Ian played by Dennis Trillo.
Since it was Christmas time, Kim and JC received ‘abundant’ gifts from veteran host Boy Abunda. JC got an infant teether for his then-eight-month-old daughter Lana Athena.
Kim Chiu reacted, “Oh my God! I love them so much!” as she unwrapped the gift – Blackpink merchandise. It’s just amusing to know that even the stars we admire would stan other artists as well. Asked how she started to fangirl over Blackpink, Kim mentioned that it happened out of curiosity.
Kim used to be a big Taylor Swift fanatic, the top artist who amassed one hundred million YouTube views within a day. Kim saw that Blackpink came second to Taylor, so she got curious about them, watched their video and became an instant fan.
“Sabi ko, ‘Sino itong mga ‘to? Parang malalamangan pa nila si Taylor Swift!’ Tapos noong tiningnan ko sila, oh my gosh! Ang gaganda nila at ang gagaling nila,” shared Kim. She also loves the color pink and that’s another reason to stan the K-Pop group.
