The Primetime Princess is back... and she's now a 'he'!
Shot in the bustling districts of the island of Hongkong, Kim Chiu takes part of a gender bending dual role - as the beautiful Belinda Young and the ruggedly handsome Marcus Jung.

According to the latest and exclusive interview of The Buzz, the young actress shared her wonderful experience in Hongkong together with Matteo Guidicelli, Jolo Revilla and Xian Lim, her leading men. She even shared one scary moment in Hongkong wherein a local allegedly ignited the lighter near her, almost burning her faux-facial hair.
"Nung nagshoshooting po kami sa lalake kong role, marami pong nakatingin sa akin. Tapos, nilapitan po ako ng isang matandang lalake at bigla nalang niyang sinindi yung lighter niya malapit sa bigote ko! Napasigaw ako".
Chiu was unscathed from that incident.
Meanwhile, Aiai delas Alas shares her excitement about her new project with Kim Chiu.
“Hindi ko pa nagagawa ang role na ito. Nanay ako dito! Ha ha ha! Nanay ako ni Kim Chiu. Bagong-bago!”, cheered delas Alas. The Comedy Concert Queen shared that she and Kim are close with each other because of their common interests.
“Close na kami niyan ni Baby Kimmy. Gusto namin pareho ang shopping. Kapag may nagbebenta sa akin, ire-refer ko kay Kim. Bibili naman siya.” Ai-Ai added that she is looking forward to the shoot of My Binondo Girl in Guangzhou, China where she and Kim may find time to go on a shopping spree.
