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.
Chiu was on the late night talk show to promote the upcoming "Maalaala Mo Kaya" episode, in which she will try to give justice to the life story of collegiate volleyball star Sisi Rondina.
She acknowledged being a longtime fan of Rondina and that it's an honor to be portraying her for the drama anthology.
The episode is set to air this Saturday after "Idol Philippines."
