After two years of hiatus, the reel-real boob tube sweethearts are back on your home screens to reclaim their rightful spot in prime-time.

The much-awaited comeback of the most requested love team finally returned in primetime as Kapamilya network featured the KimXi tandem in their newest teleserye called The Story of Us. It premiered last Monday, replacing the hit series On The Wings Of Love.

In this Glitter.ph interview with Kim Chiu and Xian Lim, the duo shared their preparations and excitement for this project. Xian said, “Itong bago naming teleserye ay sobrang naiiba,itsura palang talaga namin iba na, sinasabihan nga kami na ibang iba talaga kami kumbaga dito mangingisda ako at tour guide naman si Kim Chiu, and the story took place in El Nido Palawan, so locals po kami doon.”

“Yes panibago po ito saamin,” Kim added. “Sobrang love story ang kwento nito. Dalawang tao na nagmamahalan, and from the start doon magsisimula yung kwento at i -unfold namin syempre kung paano nila nasurvived yung mga pangyayari sa buhay lalo na ang long distance relationship.”

“Ako pala dito si Macoy,” said the actor, “at siya naman si Tin (Kim Chiu), love story itong between couples na kung kaya nga ba talaga nila i-keep ang love at kung kapag dumating na ba talaga ang priorities in life kaya pa nga ba nila i-keep yung pagmamahalan nila. I’m so excited doing this movie, I hope sila din kasi ang tagal din namin di nagsama sa isang project.”

According to Kim, “Grabe ang paghahanda ni Xian dito sobrang diet sobra pagpapabilad sa araw para makapagpa itim tas sumasama siya sa mga mangingisda.” And he said, “Sumasama talaga kami sa mga locals para makuha namin yung vibes ng story.” “Ay naku, may paabs pa siya dito,” she laughed.

Kim also revealed that she even cut her hair for the sake of her role. “Ako din nag pa arawat nag pa itim. Talagang taong dagat din ako dito, sobrang embrace na kami na maging tao sa probinsya ganun, and yung buhok ko ginupit ko.

Kim and Xian considered this project as unusual for them, especially that their roles are already mature, not the typical roles they did in the past. Kim said, “Opo sobra pinakamature at pinakabago, talagang maraming first dito sa teleserye na dito lang nangyari after two years kung saan kami nagkasama sa isang series.”  The screen partners admitted that they feel pressure for this comeback project.

Kim explained, “Syempre kinabahan din kami kasi ilang taon din bago kami bumalik sa TV,sana andon pa rin ang suporta nila para saamin at sana magustuhan nila ang kwento at yung character namin ni Xian.”

And while Xian would like to thank all their supporters, he would also like to assure them that it’s a very different KimXi they can see in this new project. “Talagang pinaghandaan namin ito ng husto kasi meron pong pressure para saamin. Kaya gusto ko lang po din magpasalamat sa lahat ng tao na sumusuporta sa amin na hanggang ngayon andiyan pa rin sila at sa lahat ng hindi pa nakakanuod, at sa lahat ng nakakapanuod e sana bigyan nyo din po kami ng chance na mabigyan kayo nang bagong materyal na talagang sana,hayaan ninyo na tumagos ito sa inyong mga puso.”
