Coco Martin and Yassi Pressman started a buzz online when a video of them allegedly giving each other a peck on the lips went viral.
Many people speculated that the “Ang Probinsyano” actors brought their onscreen relationship to real life. Coco plays the lead role in the long running television show while Yassi plays Alyana, the current love interest of Cardo.
Although the video didn’t clearly show the two actor’s faces, it was quite clear that a peck on the face happened judging from how it looked. In fact, it seemed as if Yassi grabbed the actor by the face while he wrapped his arm around her shoulder.
In an interview with ABS-CBN, the actor clarified that what people saw in the viral video was not exactly a kiss on the lips. He said that it was only a simple “beso.” He added that such is a normal occurrence for the two of them since they started working with each other.
Furthermore, Coco expressed his gratitude towards fans who are pairing him with Yassi. He said their reaction serves as an affirmation of the great on-screen chemistry he has with her leading lady.
The “Ang Probinsyano” actor added that he and Yassi want to show how their characters would fall back in love with each other. “Gusto namin ipakita iyong tamang proseso kung paano sila magkakabalikan, o mahuhulog ulit iyong isa’t-isa,” he said.
This June, ABS-CBN announced that “Ang Probinsyano” remains as one of the top 10 most watched television show in the country. The show’s 40.7% rating proved that many people continue to tune in to Cardo’s story throughout the years.
