The 27-year-old Bisaya actor plays Summer Dy, the senior interior designer for Dragon Empire owned by Adam Wong (Christopher de Leon), the father of Jia Wong (Chiu).
“Good thing is that I get pointers (from Chiu and other stars). Ang dami kong na tutunan na naapply ko sa acting ko. It is outstanding,” he told CDN Digital, especially the series is composed of powerhouse cast.
(I have learned a lot from Kim and from the rest of the cast. It really helps my acting. It is outstanding.)
“Love Thy Woman” is headlined by Chiu, De Leon, Eula Valdez, Sunshine Cruz, Xian Lim, and Yam Concepcion which premiered last February 10, 2020.
