Richard Gutierrez makes his move on KC Concepcion
By Manila P. Santos
During the promotional shoot for their upcoming movie For The First Time last July 8 at the ABS-CBN compound, it was hard not to notice the closeness KC Concepcion and Richard Gutierrez had with each other even off-cam. Richard was very attentive to KC and stuck by her side even after their shots were done.
The two seemed to be really hitting it off in their first joint project together. “I can say naman siguro, [that we’re sweet] because we’ve known each other rin for quite some time and we get along on the set. We just enjoy every moment. So yun yung nagdadala ng chemistry sa amin. We’re just absorbing the experience, working together,” Richard explained.

Like any romantic movie, can we anticipate a kissing scene between the two? “May kissing scene yata kami. Maganda naman yung love story na ginawa nila and siguro, if ever maganda yung magiging resulta nung panliligaw nung character ni Richard and maganda yung maging reaction ng character ko, may mangyayaring kissing scene. Panuorin na lang nila para malaman nila yung buong storya,” KC said.
The top endorser and image model also admits that she has been enjoying filming so far, having the chance to get into her character. “Shooting has been good. Yung mga scenes namin so far, yung mga eksenang nag-aaway kami, tampuhan, binabato ko siya ng sapatos, so medyo masaya kasi lumalabas yung isang side namin,” she revealed.
The two recalled a filming day when KC’s mom Sharon Cuneta paid a surprise visit to the movie set. “Bale na-shock kaming lahat. Surprise talaga yung pagdating niya. Hindi namin ini-expect. So nagulat kami andun siya,” related Richard. KC shared how her mom feels about her first ever movie project. “Nag-wo-worry siya siyempre pero excited din siya na pinaka-first na pelikula ko ito. Alam niyang first time din ni Chard sa Star Cinema. She was just making sure na everything was going well, na maganda yung project na ginagawa namin and nagpakita na rin siya ng suporta bilang ina,” she added.
Considering this is her launching movie, KC says that the light romantic comedy is a must-see. “It’s how two imperfect people can find perfect love. But at the same time, how love can be imperfect also. Hindi perfect lahat ng nangyayari. Kung pano magsama yung dalawang tao. Hindi perfect yung buong proseso,” she explained. Richard, also added, ““It’s about a perfect girl who has an imperfect guy in her life.”
For The First Time is directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina and is a landmark joint production between Star Cinema and Regal Films.
