MANILA, Philippines (2nd UPDATE) – Actor Piolo Pascual has asked the public to respect his privacy, saying his break-up with actress-television host KC Concepcion is a "very sensitive issue."

Pascual arrived in Manila from Japan on Monday.

The actor refused to comment on Concepcion's "tell-all" interview on "The Buzz" aired Sunday, where she confirmed the split.

“I don’t think I’ve anything else to say. KC has already said her piece. Hayaan na lang muna natin doon kasi it’s a very sensitive issue. Hindi naman biro ang pinagdaanan naming dalawa,” he told ABS-CBN News.

Pascual asked everyone to understand what he and Concepcion are going through.

“Ang hinihingi ko na lang ay pag-iintindi sa mga tao. Hindi madali ang proseso. Hindi rin madali yung maraming nakaabang, maraming naghihintay at maraming nakikialam. Ang sa akin, hayaan na lang muna kami, especially si Kristina. It's not easy,” he pleaded.

Pascual also asked for understanding, saying other people are also being affected

On Sunday, Concepcion turned emotional as she finally admitted that she and Pascual have called it quits.

The actress, who chose not to disclose the real reason behind their separation, hinted that she is not the one that Pascual needs in his life. - Report from Gretchen Fullido, ABS-CBN News
