Kim Chiu revealed she's hopeful about falling in love again after her breakup with her longtime boyfriend Xian Lim

The actress-host made the statement during a recently concluded press conference for her hit series Linlang. In the “Yiz or Wit" (“yes” or “no”) segment, she was asked if she was open to falling in love again. To which, she answered: “Oo naman.” 

“’Di man sa ngayon muna, pero hopefully in the next months to come. Kasi ang love naman, marami namang kayang magbigay ng love, and willing naman ako tumanggap. Basta, kasali sa buhay 'yun, i-embrace nating lahat,” she continued. 

In the same segment, the stars, including Paulo Avelino and Maricel Soriano were asked whether they have been deceived or cheated on in their respective love lives. Kim, without dropping names or going into further detail, answered “Yiz.” 

“Lahat naman tayo, naloko sa pag-ibig. Kasi wala eh, nagmahal ka eh, siyempre mashoo-shoot ka talaga sa mundo ng kalokohan. Pero that’s part of life, part of growth,” she explained, adding, “So embrace the pain and learn something from that experience and then you are good to go.”

The It’s Showtime host admitted that she got blinded by love at some point in her life, but noted she has no regrets as it served as a “learning experience” for her.

“Lahat naman ng experience about love, about life, wala akong pinagsisihan, and that’s part of life,” she said. “So, I’m thankful.” 

Host MJ Felipe also asked about her most recent learning in love. “To never stop loving,” she answered. 

“Love naman comes in all forms—friendship, love with your work, and everything. Basta never stop loving,” she continued. 

Kim and Xian, also known as “KimXi,” confirmed their breakup in December 2023 after dating for almost 12 years. 

"End of a love story. It took me a while to say this until today. We owe our supporters the truth, but we also respect each other’s time of healing. In a relationship, love is always a significant factor, but sometimes love is not enough," she wrote in an Instagram post. 

She currently stars in the teleserye version of Linlang with Paulo Avelino. The two are also set to star in the Philippine adaptation of What's Wrong with Secretary Kim, which is set to premiere this year.
