Filipinos are indeed lovers of teleseryes. No wonder that some fans of ABS-CBN’s teleserye Halik have taken the story quite personally.
Yam Concepcion, who plays the controversial role of Jade — the cheating wife of Lino, seems to get the most reactions.
Yam shared during an interview with Pep that she receives hurtful messages on social media. Some called her names and tried to shame her. The actress said, “Pero hindi ko akalain na aabot sa ganito na talagang sobra na ‘yung hate na yung iba pinepersonal na.”
However, one fan reaction became a bit memorable for Yam.
She admitted on the “Tonight with Boy Abunda” show that she received a “simple gift” from a fan who idolizes her. The fan gave her a banana cue and confessed that she’s a ‘kabit’ (mistress). Yam said, “Nabigyan ako ng libreng banana cue kasi idol daw niya ako kasi kabit rin daw siya.”
But despite it all, Yam is very much thankful for the success of their show. She earlier said, “But you know, I’m very happy that our show is getting good reviews, maraming sumusubaybay sa show namin at saka natutuwa din ako kasi naa-appreciate ng tao ‘yung hardwork na ibinibigay naming lahat para mapaganda yung show.”
