Heart Evangelista Surprises Director Mark Reyes With Her Knack For Comedy, Introduces Ex-BF's To Sen. Chiz Escudero At Star Magic Ball

HEART EVANGELISTA goes daring wearing a sexy black swimsuit showing off her ample cleavage in a revealing episode this week of GMA-7’s hit primetime romcom, “My Korean Jagiya”. The scene shows her having a showdown in a swimming pool with the show’s kontrabida, Valeen Montenegro, who’s in a two-piece bikini. But the scene is treated more as a comedy since Heart, in her role as the kooky Gia, trips down while sashaying on the poolside, much to her embarrassment.

The show’s director, Mark Reyes, has nothing but praises for Heart. “She’s a real pro, kahit anong ipagawa mo, kahit mapahiya siya, gagawin niya basta sa ikagaganda ng show,” he says. “And the scene showing na natalisod siya habang rumarampa sa may pool turned out to be really funny. We never thought she’d be truly effective in this kind of hilarious vehicle kasi mas kilala siya in doing heavy dramas before. She even shows great comic timing in delivering her punchlines.”

“Ako mismo, na-surprised sa sarili ko kasi I’ve never really done this kind of out and out comedy before,” says Heart. “At first, kabado ako but kaya ko naman pala. And I’m so encouraged by the comments I’m getting from the show’s viewers. They’re really enjoying daw the new Heart that they see in ‘My Korean Jagiya’. Even my husband (Sen. Chiz Escudero), natatawa siya sa comic scenes ko sa show. He thought daw drama lang ang kaya ko. And this is really a great breaker for me kasi nakakasawa na rin yung iyak ka nang iyak sa TV.”

Even if she’s now a true blue Kapuso, Heart attended the recent Star Magic Ball and she was able to introduce her husband Sen. Chiz Escudero to her past BF’s, including John Prats, Jericho Rosales and Daniel Matsunaga. This is a sure sign that they’ve all moved on as Heart is now so happily married to Sen. Chiz.
