On May 14, Kapamilya artist KD Estrada confirmed that he doesn’t see his love team with Alexa Ilacad as a competition with other love teams.
At the media conference for Run To Me, Estrada admitted that he looks up to the other Kapamilya love teams, such as DonBelle.
“Personally, lang naman po, I don’t really see it as a competition sa ibang love team. ‘Yung mga bagong love team like DonBelle, napakalakas. I look up to them honestly, kasi she’s close with Belle, and I look up to Donny, and I want to say na I don’t see other love teams as a a competition kasi iba naman kami ni Alexa eh. Iba naman ‘yung how we approach stuff.”
He then said it felt surreal having a lead role with Ilacad and working with the cast of Run To Me.
“Yes, kasi naalala ko dati when I was young parang nakikita ko lang ‘yung mga kasama ko ngayon sa mga–sa TV. I never thought na magiging artista din ako. So seeing myself in a huge screen together with Alexa parang grabe I made it this far.”
He also recalled his early years in showbiz, saying, “I started when I was 16, I mean trainee ako, pero ngayon lang nag-break talaga. I waited for years and this is the time.”
As for going bigger in terms of projects, Estrada said, “I think we’re ready. We’re ready to go bigger–this is a start.”
