Even with the success of his recent teleserye, Jericho Rosales explained why he no longer wants to do soap operas.
Jericho is eyeing to widen his horizons as he said that he would rather try other things than continue doing teleseryes.
He said, “I don’t wanna do soaps anymore, and it is not a problem for me.”
During the press conference of ‘Halik’, Jericho explained his announcement. He said, “That was unplanned and I think ‘yun na ang nasa puso ko. Mahirap siya i-explain.”
“Baka ang gusto ko lang sabihin, ‘yung ganitong klase ng storya [hindi ko na gagawin]. Gusto kong i-challenge [‘yung sarili ko] na maghain ng something new para sa mga nanonood sa akin,” he added.
The ‘Halik’ cast gathered as the teleserye will soon bid goodbye before April ends.
Jericho, however, clarified that he isn’t quitting acting. He said, “Pinag-uusapan pa lang natin kung ano ang puwede nating gawing bago, na talagang bago. Pero not to stop acting.”
“ I will never stop acting. Maybe I will get into producing, writing, directing. This time, it is my responsibility to repackage [myself] and do something new again,” he added.
When he finally finishes shooting ‘Halik’, the actor is looking forward to some quality time for himself.
He said, “Kakanta muna ako ulit, surfing muna ulit, motor muna ulit and then pagbalik ko by the end of the year, I have something new for sure.”
The Kapamilya actor also acknowledged the support of his wife Kim Jones. He said, “I am so blessed to have a beautiful wife who actually has the same passion.”
Jericho shared that they already have plans that while Kim is busy building a company, he will be rebuilding himself.
