In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Tuesday, Rosales cited conflicts in schedule as the reason he won’t be part of the upcoming television series anymore.

“Wala namang tampo tampo or anything but the management spoke to the production team and they said they totally understand. I’m a little bit sad siyempre kasi feeling ko na-let down ko sila. They are expecting na kasali na ako pero biglang hindi na,” he said,

While he will no longer be part of the cast, Rosales said he wishes the show well.

“I'm sure it will be a hit and they look like masasayang magkakasama naman. Maybe [I can work with them again] on the next soap,” he said.

For now, Rosales is looking forward to doing his international project which will be shot in Malaysia, in the Philippines and some parts of Europe.

“It's a TV series na ipapalabas sa Malaysia. We got the offer last year, and the guys from the network there came over para makipag-meeting sa amin. We said yes. Exciting siya,” he said.

He is supposed to be paired with actress Kristine Hermosa in the project but Rosales said he is not sure if the actress already accepted it.

Asked if he will be gone for a long time because of this project, Rosales said: “Siguro. Hindi ko pa masasabi. 'Yung schedule kasi nila the least a couple of months. Pero maganda ang schedule nila eh so okay naman.”

“Nothing is final final final but the offer is there, the guys went here and then we talked about schedule and stuff,” he added.

Meanwhile, the actor clarified that this international project was not the reason he backed out of his supposed series with Santos and Concepcion.

“Hindi naman. Nagkataon lang kasi na-delay din ng na-delay 'yung soap. Gusto ko sana talagang gawin but we were supposed to start November last year – no earlier than that pa because I remember accepting the project August or September and then na-delay ng konti because of schedule issues so hindi ko na... I didn't choose something over something,” he explained.
