Those who watched Kim Chiu and Jake Cuenca in the January 16 episode of Your Song Presents Kim have said that the two have an undeniable on screen chemistry. In fact, many of them are hoping to see more of Kim and Jake’s team-up in the future. “Nakakakilig talaga ang tambalang Kim at Jake. Sana dati pa kung wala lang si Gerald (Anderson), bagay talaga sila since Tayong Dalawa. In denial lang dati ang Kimerald (fans),” one fan said in an online forum of Your Song Presents Kim.
Kim was very happy with her fans’ all-out support for her decision to be paired with as many Kapamilya actors as possible. When told that most of them seemed to be in favor of her team-up with Jake, she cheerfully stated, “Totoo? Talagang may bet pa kayo ha! Siyempre masaya naman din ako and base naman kasi yun sa story ng Your Song. Kung may nakaka-appreciate ng tandem namin ni Jake, salamat. Actually may mga fans nga na nagpunta sa set that time, ang pangalan nila Jakerly.”
The young actress also agreed that it would be nice to be paired with Jake again since they’re both comfortable with each other. Although Jake has been very vocal about his relationship with Melissa Ricks lately, Kim stressed that it wouldn’t be a problem for her. “Kung magkatrabaho man ulit kami ni Jake, siyempre hindi naman magseselos si Mel. Magkaibigan kami and alam naman ni Mel na kapag trabaho, trabaho. Tinutukso ko nga silang dalawa, kinikilig ako sa kanila. Alam naman niya na magkahiwalay yung personal tsaka trabaho.”
