The controversial plot of “Sin Island” turned out to be worth seeing as the film received encouraging feedback from moviegoers. For someone who was used to playing in romantic-comedy flicks, this was a brand-new opportunity for Xian Lim, on his part, to prove his acting prowess. And there on his side was his rumored girlfriend Kim Chiu, who showed nothing but support all the way for this new milestone of his career.
Before the film hit the cinemas last Valentine’s Day, the actress took to her Instagram Stories to congratulate Xian, as well as encouraged her fans and followers to support the movie.
“So proud of you on this film!!!! [sic] this is it! all the best tonight! SIN ISLAND in cinemas feb14!!! [sic]”
Prior to this, it can be recalled that Xian was intrigued on “Tonight With Boy Abunda” if he would be bothered that his rumored girlfriend will witness his love scenes in “Sin Island”. But, answered by the actor, Kim is more than welcome to watch it if she chooses so.
Nevertheless, this statement from Xian runs counter to what Kim shared during her guesting on “Magandang Buhay”. As told by the actress, her rumored boyfriend initially didn’t want for her to see the film, in fear that she would get mad at him.
“Pinili na lang niya na ‘wag mag-kwento. Hindi niya ‘ko pinapanood. Sabi niya, ‘Wag ka na manood. Kasi alam ko magagalit ka.’ So grabe siya. Hindi naman. Alam ko namang work yun.”
All the same, Kim took the time to watch the movie as show of support to her main man. In a report from ABS-CBN, she didn’t hold back from praising Xian for his superb performance.
“Pinanood namin. Intense, adult, mature. Siyempre as an actor, ang galing niya! Iba naman ang acting sa personal life.”
