Jennylyn Mercado chose to stay silent with regard to rumors circulating that she is going to be paired with Alden Richards for a remake of a Koreanovela.
The actress did not provide any confirmation regarding rumors that she will be Richard Alden’s leading lady for the Pinoy remake of the hit Koreanovela My Love From The Star.
“Naku, hindi ko alam (Oh, I don’t know),” the Kapuso actress said with a smile during an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at her taping for GMA News TV program Dishkarte of the Day, last May 5, at Casa Milan, Fairview, Quezon City.
In case it does push through, will Jennylyn agree to become the new leading lady of the Pambansang Bae?
“Si Alden? Bakit naman hindi, di ba (Alden? Why not)? Alam naman ng mga tao na trabaho lang talaga at gusto lang namin i-confirm kung anuman, if ever lang (The people know that it’s plain work and we just want to confirm things, whatever it may be),” the actress said.
Jennylyn said she is looking forward to becoming Steffi Cheon of My Love From The Star if ever the rumors are true since the project is actually promising.
“Sana... sana matuloy (Hopefully, it pushes through)!” Jennylyn said. “Bakit naman hindi, sino ba naman ang aayaw sa ganun kagandang proyekto (Why not? Who woudn’t want this beautiful project)?”
However, even though these are still rumors, some of the loyal AlDub fans are already bashing the actress via social media. Jennylyn protested that there’s no need for the fans to do that.
“Siguro para sa akin, hindi kailangang gawin yun ng mga tao (I think the people don’t have to do that) Alam naman nila yung... ewan ko (They know that). Parang hindi siya nakakaganda sa mga sinusuportahan nila (It doesn’t look good for the people they are supporting),” the actress said.
“Ako naman, hangga’t alam kong wala akong ginagawang hindi maganda (For me, as long as as I am not doing anything wrong, then it’s nothing),” she added.
The actress is also aware that she wouldn’t be able to please the fans of other love teams. However, she said she doesn’t really mind them even if sometimes they go beyond the line.
