IS Maja Salvador falling for Korean actor Kim Bum, who was featured in the Korean series, "Boys Over Flowers," which was shown on ABS CBN only a few months back?

In that case, is she ready for a long-distance romance?

The members of the entertainment press invited to an impromptu presscon organized for her and Kim by ABS CBN and RC Cola, their first commercial team-up, asked.

Maja laughed lightly and answered: "How come na my conclusion na kaagad na romance would soon develop between us? I've known him for only two days. Noong ginagawa namin ang commercial. This is only our third day to be together."

Maja admits, though, that it's easy to like the Korean actor, as he is not only friendly and easy to get along with but he also loves to talk to people. Although he does this through his interpreter.

"Sabi ko sa kanya, I like him more when he smiles," Maja revealed. "Ang ganda kasi ng ngipin niya. At kasama niya sa kanyang pag smile ang pag smile rin ng kanyang singkit na ang mga mata."

And what does he tell her in return?

"Sabi niya, I look like Catherine Zeta Jones," Maja replied, "Kinilig ako, dahil pagkaganda ganda ni Catherine."

Maja refused, though, to compare Kim with Michael Douglas, Catherine's husband.


In "Boys Over Flowers," Kim is not the bida but Lee Min-ho, who was reportedly RC's original choice to be Maja's partner in the commercial. It turned out, however, that the Rustom Padilla look-alike (yes, Lee, minus his curly hair, is Rustom's spitting image) is an endorser of another softdrink.

Kim is a year younger than Maja, who was born October 5, 1988. Kim's birthdate is July 7, 1989.

Aside from "Boys Over Flowers," which in Korea was known as "Boys Before Flowers," Kim is also in "East of Eden," "Unstoppable High Kick" and "Outrageous Women."

He is currently seen in "Dream," which ABS-CBN might release in the Philippines.

He has appeared in Korean films such as "Emergency" and "I Life It HGot."

He has many active endorsements in Korea.

Kim finished a course in Movie and Theater from the Jungang University.

Kim denies that report that Gu Hye-Sun, his leading lady in "Boys Over Flowers," is his girlfriend. He said the reason the two of them are close is because they were classmates.


Now it can be told that it's really over between Kaye Abad and Parokya ni Edgar lead singer Chito Miranda.

The two were sweethearts for a long time, which explains why Kaye was inactive in showbiz for quite a while.

Now Kaye is reportedly singing beautiful music with Guji Lorenzana, a newcomer who is a nephew of Joanne Lorenzana.

Back in the US where he grew up, Guji used to be also a member of a band, where he was its soloist.

He is also the soloist of his band in the country. But he currently appears more preoccupied with his acting career than his singing. He was featured in the series, "Precious Hearts Romance Presents: Bud Brothers," where he was assigned to play Roxanne Guinoo's leading man.

Roxanne reportedly backed out from the series when told that she and Guji will have a kissing scene.

Although Roxanne denied this, she still decided to back out.

Kaye, when she was still a teenager and new in showbiz, had John Lloyd Cruz for her boyfriend.


Ara Mina and Cristine Reyes said it's just their mom, Frances Kenk, who is keen on going back to their home in Provident Village, Marikina, where the two of them and their siblings grew up.

The two sisters, however, are against the idea, as based on their mom's story, this is the third time that flood waters reached their second floor.

Their mom needed to be rescued both times. Ara told movie and TV reporter Liza Andaya that former Quezon City Congressman Chuck Mathay rescued her mom the first time. In the second incident, it was Cristine's dad who rescued their mom.

"In the third incident," said Liza, "we all know Richard (Gutierrez) saved Cristine.

"Ang ikinatatakot obviously nina Ara at Cristine, wala nang savior na dadalo kapag nagkaroon ng pang-apat na incident."
