There's a video going around in which Kim Chiu was seen trying to stop boyfriend Xian Lim from kissing her. 

It was taken during Lim's birthday celebration this past week, and as pointed out on "Tonight With Boy Abunda" on Wednesday some fans reacted to the cute moment (that eventually ended with them kissing anyway) with a bit of negativity. 

Apparently, a few thought that Chiu's hesitation to kiss Lim, given the occasion, meant that not everything is OK between the couple. 

But according to Chiu, she was just embarrassed knowing that a lot of people were watching and egging them on, describing herself as still a bit of a "conservative" when it comes to public displays of affection.
