He may open up a bit about his love life but Enchong Dee prefers not reveal the name of his new sweetheart.
“Ever since naman ay hindi ako nagsisinungaling. I give details as much as possible,” the young actor said during the media huddle for his movie “Once A Princess.”
“Hanggang doon lang ang masasabi ko kasi my girlfriend is not from showbiz… I want to protect her from all this.”
He pleaded, “Ibalato n’yo na lang sa akin. This is by far my happiest relationship and my most private relationship.” As such, he said he intends to keep it “low key.”
Enchong’s protectiveness seems justified when he shared, “Kasi simula noong umamin ako na may GF ako ay may mga nagtu-tweet sa kanya, may mga gumagawa ng account (just) to bash her.”
Needless to say, he felt “bad” that it happened, relating that people would even go as far as research her. However, he reiterated that his insistence on privacy is not the same as “not being proud” of her. “Hindi siya sanay sa ganito, eh,” he explained.
Enchong nevertheless relented to sharing details of how they met.
“Nasa shooting ako ng ‘Once A Princess.’ Na-pack-up ako nang maaga and I have to attend an event. Ayun nakita ko siya tapos nagpakilala ako. Nagkausap kami tapos hiningi ko ang number niya. That’s it,” he said of the young lady he calls “sweetie ko.”
It did not take long for him to win her heart. “I treated her like a princess. Siguro nakita rin niyang good boy ako,” he shared.
Enchong revealed that he is in a relationship a few weeks ago. “I would like to think (that she felt good about it). Ang pangit naman na ide-deny siya,” he related.
Maja Salvador and Enchong Dee delighted fans at the Music Museum in San Juan City on Saturday night when the former "Ina, Kapatid, Anak" co-stars took the stage with a racy number, which ended with the actor taking off his top.
Several fans were distraught over showbiz heartthrob Enchong Dee’s revelation that he has been in a romantic relationship with a non-showbiz girl for less than a year now.
“It just happened. It wasn’t planned. We saw each other, we talked, we shared numbers and then ‘yun na,” Enchong said on “The Buzz.”
The actor became a trending topic on Twitter last Sunday, with some fans expressing dismay over the news.
“IT’S OVER, may girlfriend na si Enchong… What a sad day,” said one.
Another added, “Enchong Dee has a girlfriend? Okay goodbye world.”
The 25-year-old actor refused to disclose the identity of his girlfriend because he wants to keep the relationship private.
“Iyon ang kagandahan sa non-showbiz (girlfriend) kasi unless you tell the people, no one will find out. I’m happy na low-key lang. I want her life to be private,” he said.
The last woman who was romantically linked to Enchong was his “The Reunion” and “The Strangers” co-star Julia Montes but the relationship didn’t prosper.
