Jericho Rosales Busy With TV, Movies & Preparing For His May 1st Wedding To Kim Jones

JERICHO ROSALES is very busy these days. He has a new movie coming up, Viva’s adaptation of Bob Ong’s hit book, “ABNKKBSNPL Ako” (Aba Nakakabasa Na Pala Ako)” where he plays the author Bob Ong, and a new soap on ABS-CBN, “The Legal Wife”. He’s also taping a new Malaysian drama series in Kuala Lumpur to be aired starting May. Echo is well known there because his earlier soap, “Pangako Sa’Yo”, was a big hit when shown there. He’s really working double time to prepare for his and fiancée Kim Jones’ wedding on May 1 in Boracay.

“In between work, I help Kim attend to the requirements of our wedding,” he says. “Hands on kami sa preparations. We’re both very excited, but we’re not ready to have a baby yet. Maybe in a couple of years. As of now, we just want to enjoy each other’s company.”

He’s paired with Andi Eigenmann in “ABNKKBSNPL Ako”, with Vandolph and Meg Imperial supporting them. A romantic comedy on the travails of a young man from high school to young adulthood, the movie brought back to Echo memories of his own school life. “I became a fan of the book after mabasa ko siya. I’m sure a lot of young people at yung mga nakabasa ng book na isang best-seller, will enjoy watching this. It’s a breaker for me after doing mostly dramas.”

As the philandering husband in “Legal Wife” who has an affair with Maja Salvador, upsetting his wife Angel Locsin, Echo says their new soap will be an eye-opener for married couples. “Marami talagang aral na mapupulot dito ang mga kababayan natin about infidelity and why it happens, and also about the importance of having a good family life. It’s full of dramatic confrontations na gustong panoorin ng most viewers natin.”
