MANILA, Philippines - ABS-CBN's newest star Richard Yap, or popularly known as "Papa Chen" from his stint in the series "My Binondo Girl," is set to do a project with Queen of All Media Kris Aquino.

In the morning show KrisTV, Chen said he is excited to work with Aquino for ABS-CBN's upcoming series "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw."

"I heard. Yes, of course, I'm excited. It's an honor for me," Yap told Aquino on the Tuesday episode of "KrisTV."

According to Aquino, she will be shooting scenes with Yap abroad. She also added that Yap's wife, Melody, should join them while working abroad.

"Based on the story sa abroad tayo magshoo-shoot. Dapat sumama siya (Melody) kasi matagal 'yata yon. Ang bina-block off nila ay mga two to three weeks 'yung sa pagshoo-shoot natin. I'm so excited to work with you kasi mai-inlove ka sa akin pero hindi kita ila-love kasi may asawa na ako, ikaw kasi eh," Aquino shared.

Aside from Aquino and Yap, "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw" also stars Anne Curtis and Robin Padilla.
