Coco Martin faced the press and clarified what seems to be a romantic online clamor about him and “Ang Probinsyano” leading lady Yassi Pressman.
This, as Netizens went wild after a photo of them seeming to “kiss” became viral on social media and different entertainment reports.
“Hindi naman kiss iyon, beso-beso lang iyon,” Martin clarified to the media, speaking at the sidelines of a press conference on Thursday. The event was for the launching of his new TV commercial which is a new brand of sardines.
Martin said that it is normal to kiss the actress, who plays the wife of his character, every time they greet each other on the set with a “beso”. He said they never do lips to lips, and it was fans who get the wrong impression that they kissed.

Though no malice was involved, fans still expressed admiration and said they look good together off-cam.
Martin was still thankful to the supporters who were insisting that the TV love team should become a real-life couple. He said that this shows their support to the duo.
“Nakakataba ng puso kasi siguro tinatangkilik nila iyong ‘Ang Probinsyano,’ iyong tambalan namin ni Yassi. Nakaka-proud kasi nagugustuhan nila,” he said.
He added that they are practicing a “realistic” portrayal of a married couple who trying to reunite after a split.
“Gusto namin ipakita iyong tamang proseso kung paano sila magkakabalikan, o mahuhulog ulit iyong isa’t-isa,” Martin said.
Martin pointed out that there is more to the recent story plot of the teleserye than just action scenes. Audience will have to see romance and comedy too in the theme.
