In an interview with Push.com.ph, Lim said that while people may say what they want, he and Chiu know the real status of their relationship.

“We are friends. Well whatever people speculate, whatever they say, it’s up to them. Basta kami we are doing our job, we are happy and we are just here just to make everyone proud,” he said.

Lim has been vocal about his interest in Chiu since they both starred in the ABS-CBN series “My Binondo Girl.”

Their team-up also gained a huge following and many of their fans want Lim and Chiu to be a couple in real life.

Asked how he feels about it, Lim said: “She said she is very dedicated to her work and I am very dedicated to my work so sigurado kami na kung papasok kami sa ganun, ayaw namin mahati 'yung atensyon sa trabaho, unahin muna namin 'yung trabaho.”

While they are not able to go out on dates because of their busy schedule, Lim said it is already more than enough that he gets to spend time with Chiu during their taping days.

“Alam mo wala kasing time eh with her schedule and my schedule. At sinasabi ko naman na halos everyday kami nagkikita sa taping, grabe 'yung everyday na nagkikita na kami,” he said.

Lim maintained he and Chiu are just taking things slow.

“Siguro alam mo for now hindi ko muna iniisip sa sobrang daming iisipin. And lagi naman kaming nagkikita. Nandiyan lang naman 'yun at nandiyan lang naman ang friendship, all we have to do is just take our time,” he explained.
