Heart Evangelista Glad That Hubby Sen. Chiz Is Not The Jealous Type, Grateful That 'My Korean Jagiya' Is A Big Hit

HEART EVANGELISTA is thankful that her new primetime show, “My Korean Jagiya”, quickly gained a lot of loyal followers every night right after it started airing. “I should also thank all my co-stars, pati all the Korean actors who are part of the show, kasi nagkatulong-tulong kaming lahat to make sure we give a highly entertaining show in every episode,” she says.

She also credits Director Mark Reyes and their writers for the show’s success. “I think nahuli talaga ng writers namin at ni Direk Mark ang kiliti ng viewers, lalo na yung mahilig sa K-drama. The story is really unique and I really like my role as a school teacher, Gia, a bubbly and optimistic young woman na hopeless romantic. I want to thank all the netizens who fill up their social media accounts each night after each telecast with positive comments and feedback about the show and its cast.”

She and her husband Sen. Chiz Escudero are planning to have a baby by next year. “Kapag natapos ang airing ng show, we will prioritize it na, kaya baka maging last show ko muna itong ‘My Korean Jagiya’. Chiz isn’t pressuring me naman to give him a baby but at my age, which is 32, I think it’s the right time to have my own. Kasi now, I’m already a mom two Chiz’ 9-year old twins with his first marriage, who are both very well behaved so we all get along fine. But I think I’m ready to have my own at ang gusto ko, isang baby lang, it doesn’t matter kung boy or girl, basta healthy and normal in everything.”

Doesn’t Sen. Chiz get jealous when she is doing “kilig” romantic moments with Korean actor Alexander Lee? “Not at all. Maski kay Dennis Trillo noon in ‘Juan Happy Love Story’, wala. Sabi ko nga, magselos ka naman. I think it’s because he really trusts me, alam niyang trabaho lang ito and, also, he feels so secure about himself kaya there’s no jealousy in his vocabulary. He also knows that Alexander Lee and the other Koreans are treated like family kasi madalas sila sa aming bahay. And I’m grateful na very supportive siya sa career ko and not the type na maraming ipagbabawal na gawin ko.”
